Aachen, January 22, 2020—The German network infrastructure supplier LANCOM Systems emerged as the clear leader from the latest user survey “Professional User Rating Security Solutions (PUR-S)” by the analyst firm techconsult. After 2017, 2018 and 2019, LANCOM has again secured the “Champion” award in Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions for the fourth time in a row.


For the independent user survey, the research and analyst firm techconsult conducted over 2,000 representative online interviews with IT managers at user companies in autumn 2019. The cross-manufacturer survey looks at all of the noteworthy security providers active in Germany.


LANCOM took a clear lead to secure the top place among the VPN manufacturers with its extensive solution portfolio for highly secure site connectivity. Users particularly value the performance of the routers, gateways and clients. Also convincing are the outstanding effectiveness, high availability and easy maintenance offered by the solution. Surveyed companies also gave top marks for the reduced workload on the IT department and the improved efficiency of work processes. The result: LANCOM VPN solutions are recommended unreservedly, and resale is assured.


The outstanding satisfaction shown by the solution’s evaluation is mirrored by the manufacturer rating. Here too, LANCOM leads by a clear margin.


Users lay particular value on corporate social responsibility, as they gave top marks for social engagement and corporate culture. Additional factors are a large network of sales partners, the high level of competence of the sales consultants, and the composition of the individual offers.


“The latest result is a tremendous confirmation of our corporate and portfolio strategy. Seen together with our top placement in the current Professional User Rating IT Operations—where the LANCOM Management Cloud emerged as Champion in the Network Management category—the PUR-S VPN further underlines the performance of our efficient, secure and easily scalable SD-WAN solution.” says a convinced Tarik Erdemir, Vice President Router & VPN-Gateways at LANCOM Systems.
