The industry is still reeling from bombshell news last week of the acquisition of Milestone by Canon. The ink may be barely dry, but the agreement was celebrated at IFSEC with a press event and big photo opportunity involving Rokus van Iperen, president and CEO, Canon Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Lars Thinggaard, President and CEO, Milestone Systems. There was a big crowd around the Canon stand during the event. In addition to congratulations all around, there were assurances about the “governance structure” related to Milestone continuing to operate independently, and several mentions of “Chinese walls.”

Definitely plenty to think about on the Tube ride back to the hotel, and also two more days to explore the large exhibit hall. Stay tuned.
