Milestone elected best IT security company of 2018 by Danish magazine Computerworld

Milestone Systems’ President & CEO Lars Thinggaard was interviewed by Computerworld about Milestone's future growth and how our software is used outside the area of traditional security.


Danish Computerworld has elected Milestone Systems the best IT security company in Denmark, based on the company’s significant growth rates.

Traditionally, Milestone Systems’ video platform has been used in security installations. But according to Lars Thinggaard, the trend is now that video is moving beyond security, for instance for targeted advertising campaigns.

A significant increase in new partnerships and embarking on new business areas has resulted in a recent annual total turnover of just over DKK 808 million - the main reason Computerworld elected Milestone the top IT security company in Denmark. Milestone Systems is investing heavily in accelerating innovation through hiring new employees that will help the company gain an even greater market share in the years to come.

“Milestone Systems has been the global number 1 in Video Management Solutions for the past 10 years and I’m really proud that we’re now also rated the leading IT security company in Denmark […] We have 175 open positions that we need to fill in the next 6-12 months, to meet the demands in market opportunities beyond the traditional security market,” Lars Thinggaard says.

Milestone Systems was established 20 years ago but maintains its entrepreneurial mentality, which, according to Lars, is part of the company’s success: “We make mistakes at Milestone, but making mistakes is part of having an entrepreneurial mentality. I actually reward the people who dare to make mistakes and take risks; being experimental in a market growing as fast as our market is, is important.”
