Secure Computing Honored With VARBusiness Magazine's Coveted Five-Star Rating Three Years in a Row.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Secure Computing Corporation (NASDAQ:SCUR), the experts in securing connections between people, applications and networks, today announced its PartnersFirst channel program received VARBusiness Magazine's coveted five-star rating for the third year in a row. The award is given annually to a select group of vendors whose partners programs have demonstrated outstanding commitment to their channel. Of the more than 250 vendor-program entries reviewed for the past year, only 70 companies received the coveted five-star rating in the magazine's 12th annual Partner Programs Guide survey.
