For enterprise companies paying to insurance against cyber crime, Apple CEO Tim Cook argues its customers should get a break on insurance costs when coupled with Cisco gear.
Sharing a stage with Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins at a Cisco event in Las Vegas, Cook said the combination of gear from the two companies was more secure than the use of competing technology, such as the Android mobile operating system made by Alphabet Inc's Google.
A pretty good marketing spin. There are so many variables including typically the weakest link with humans. Actuaries may not see it the same way, but the message seems strong that Apple and Cisco have something to sell for those shopping for secure solutions.
