Symantec, VMware, Intel, Cisco, MS, etc.

...I have to admit I'm in a "WTF?!" mode with some of the listees present.

Companies like Symantec, Checkpoint, and Kaspersky are a nobrainer.

Some are a "learn something new every day, like IBM (forget what their IPS appliance / software is)

...but Apple, Gartner and Google are considered "security" companies? Methinks they either have a loose definition of "security" or they're putting more emphasis on "powerful."

That list is ridiculous. How did Google get on there? Or Apple? etc.

A particular large bank (that I can not legally identify) finds quite a few each year too. Does that make the bank a top "security company"?

The criteria for defining such a title does need to be clearly defined as the list does seem to be pretty humorous (or frightening?) otherwise.
