Top 20 Most Braindumped Certification Vendors

Would it surprise you to know that a majority of the braindump sites primarily distribute Microsoft and Cisco braindumps? Nah, that's too obvious. Would it be a shock to know that Oracle, Citrix, and Sun are in spots 3, 4, & 5, respectively? Well maybe, but hopefully the information provided below will shed a little light on the seriousness that is plaguing the I.T. industry.

The numbers in the right column represent the number of braindump sites we have found to be distributing, or promoting the distribution of, the intellectual property for each certification vendor.

It is apparent there is a direct correlation between the popularity of an exam or certification track and the number of braindumps available for each certification vendor. So the following information could also be interpreted as "The 20 Most Popular Certification Vendors", but that wasn't our goal. Since we haven't narrowed our data down to each individual exam or certification track, the information provided is per vendor and each braindump site may include some or all of their exams.

Certification vendors are continuously working to remove their intellectual property from the internet and braindump sites are constantly popping up, so these numbers are guaranteed to change. Starting January 2009, we will be providing an annual Top 20 to keep the industry abreast of the progress each vendor is making on a yearly basis.
