Aachen, January 29, 2018—LANCOM Systems, the leading German manufacturer of network infrastructure solutions for business customers and the public sector, has emerged as the sole Champion of the recent security survey by the analysts techconsult. In the user survey “Professional User Rating Security Solutions (PUR-S)”, LANCOM achieved top ratings for its solutions in terms of innovation, customer satisfaction, performance, sustainability, as well as the likelihood of product recommendation. In doing so LANCOM has achieved a pleasing repeat success: LANCOM was previously awarded the title “Champion” in the 2017 survey and emerged from the study as the best-placed VPN provider.


This large-scale survey interviewed more than 2,100 companies about their satisfaction with the solutions they employ. 70 individual criteria were evaluated in 14 categories. The survey included all major providers of security solutions who are active in the German market.


In terms of the manufacturer and the solution ratings, LANCOM achieved results that are far above average and clearly outpaced its competitors in numerous categories.


LANCOM achieved absolute peak performance in terms of customer satisfaction, its innovative capabilities, and the performance of its VPN solutions—including individual aspects such as reliability, update policy, as well as service & support. LANCOM scored particular highly thanks to the expertise of its staff at its in-house support center. And as in the previous year, LANCOM also received top marks for its close-knit and highly competent network of sales partners. For the first time, however, LANCOM achieved a top ranking for its commitment to sustainability.


Thanks to an outstanding overall rating, LANCOM this year emerges as the sole Champion of Professional User Ratings for VPN. The above-average customer satisfaction is ultimately reflected by the highest score in the question of the probability of repeat purchases and recommendations.
