mmm the answer would have been yes until you highlighted below about
the meaning behind the word "users".

ah. right. where "users" when it comes to products tends to be
implicitly "end-users". as in: people who buy the products from shops
and "use" them.
the better word to cover the case you envisage would i feel be
"everyone" or "people"
so we're missing some phrases. it should be:
to maximize the degree of trust that people can place in
computing products and appliances.

yes. customers in the sense that people buying processors are
typically OEMs, not direct end-users.
