However, a TechSec 2015 educational session shed light on the term's meaning and how integrators should approach PSIM sales, according to Henry, who called the discussion “the best...

Q&A with Axis co-founder Martin Gren

February 18, 2014Martha Entwistle

Martha: I just returned from the Milestone conference where partners, including Axis, extolled the virtues of the VMS. Why does Axis really need to develop its own access control product?Martin: The virtues of software and system intelligence provide even more reason for why Axis developed our first network door controller.Moving into physical access control is a natural step in the evolution of Axis.

January 22, 2014Leif Kothe

Less than a week remains until TechSec Solutions kicks off in the comparatively balmy climes of Delray Beach, Fla. The location itself will be a welcome respite for those of us coping with the deep freeze to the north, but it's the quality of the speakers and panelists that stand to be the biggest draw.

Integrators: Making money on big security data

December 11, 2013Martha Entwistle

We've asked four leading integrators to discuss how they're helping their customers...
