It's something that is used all too often as a handy verbal crutch in sales pitches. I'm wondering how long it is before the text below is lifted verbatim and put into some vendors' sales/marketing materials.

"Our security products are truly best-of-breed - we take defense in depth to a whole new level that none of our competitors can match. We have the breadth and depth of knowledge and a proven track record in the security space to exceed our customers' expectations and deliver the optimum user experience. We can leverage the synergies and cohesion that exist across our product line to tailor a set of deliverables to meet virtually any need."
