    This is because GIAC was the certification organization most heavily involved in marketing their certs to the US DOD. GIAC had a lot of certs, so they initially dominated the 8570 list. The (ISC)2 was next with two certs and CompTIA followed with three. Microsoft and Cisco also tried, but the DOD rejected vendor-specific certs. Very late to the 8570 game, EC-Council was the real success story with the eventual acceptance of the C|EH being a financial boon to their organization. It took years and many revisions to build the DoDD 8570/8140 list to what it is today.
