SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- McAfee, Inc. , the leader in Intrusion Prevention and Security Risk Management, today announced that CIO Insight, a Ziff Davis publication for IT executives, ranked the company fourth overall in its Vendor Value Research Study alongside Red Hat, Apple, Cisco and Dell.

McAfee ranked in the top five across all seven criteria, including meeting expectations for ROI, increasing revenues, lowering costs, solving business problems and meeting quality expectations. McAfee was also one of a handful of companies with a customer loyalty rating of higher than 90 percent.

"McAfee made great strides both in the security category and the overall survey, rating higher than its competitors," said Ellen Pearlman, Editor in Chief, CIO Insight. "The company was consistently well rated across all of our criteria categories by the IT executives who responded to the survey."
