It has been two years or so since the last ISC West trade show, the biggest security show in the U.S. market. The coronavirus pandemic has caused a year’s worth of trade show cancellations, and the trend will continue for a while longer. The absence of trade shows has been transformative for the security marketplace, among others, as companies implemented a variety of alternative approaches, with mixed results. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What impact has the cancellation of trade shows had on the security industry?
Quantum and Axis work closely, delivering demanding video surveillance and security solutions Quantum was named 2016 Technology Partner of the Year by Axis Communications at its 11th annual Axis Connect and Converge Conference (ACCC 2016). Axis, the global leader in network video, presented its annual awards to top channel, software, and technology partners. Joint security solutions As a Quantum Advantage Partner, Axis works closely with Quantum to deliver proven joint solutions for today’s demanding video surveillance and security environments. Axis has joined the company on stage at industry events such as ISC East 2016 to help security professionals understand the importance of storage in video surveillance workflows. The companies have also collaborated to address the unique surveillance and security challenges found in many healthcare environments. Quantum’s surveillance partner ecosystem has tripled in size over the last year and now includes nearly 40 partners. This growth reflects a shift in how the security community views storage, increasingly treating it as a foundational element of a surveillance strategy. Growing professional network Larry Newman, senior director of sales, Axis Communications commented, “Axis partners are not only part of the industry’s largest professional network but also an extension of our team. It is an honour to bring together the top companies in our industry at ACCC and recognise those strong relationships and shared sense of leadership in providing innovative security and business solutions. Quantum stands out for taking a fresh approach to video surveillance storage that will enable security professionals to take full advantage of the latest camera and analytical technologies available today.” Effective video surveillance environment Wayne Arvidson, vice president, surveillance and security solutions, Quantum said, “Quantum’s multi-tier storage makes the combination of storage performance and data retention more affordable. Axis was early to recognise the role intelligent storage plays in enabling its customers to retain data longer and incorporate real-time analytics into their surveillance program. As a result of our collaboration, many Axis customers now have more budget available to spend on cameras and analytics, for an effective video surveillance environment.”
