COPENHAGEN - November 15TH, 2010.  Milestone Systems has been lauded with yet another industry award: this time it is the honor “Danish Security Company of the Year”.  This award has been bestowed on the worldwide leader in open platform IP video management software by Detektor magazine, published by AR Media International, who also produces security websites for many global regions. The award will be presented to Milestone during the Danish security trade show called Sectech, taking place this week in Copenhagen.

The purpose of the award is to support and raise the visibility of the country’s security industry, but particularly the most advanced companies who are making a difference.  In the deciding committee from Detektor International, they analyzed and evaluated how companies are developing their brands, how innovative they are, their speed and breadth of growth, as well as their profitability.

“Our choice of Milestone Systems as this year’s winner is not just based on the fact that Milestone is a very successful company and pioneer of IP Video Management Software, but also because it is one of the strongest brands in the network video sector. And if we had an award for ‘Security Company of the Century’ they would also deserve that. I am very pleased to honor Milestone with  this title and present the award at the security banquet ceremony on the 17th of November,” says Lennart Alexandrie, VP of AR Media International, the company that publishes the security media Detektor Scandinavia, SecurityUser and Security World Hotel.

The jury’s official statement of the criteria fulfilled by Milestone is: “For consistently standing out as a role model while maintaining the organization’s entrepreneurial spirit, and developing a technology concept and business model that have made Milestone a global leader for IP video surveillance”.

“We are very proud to be given this award as the Danish Security Company of the Year. It is a great honor.  The honor goes to our employees, who are the first-rung pioneers in our endeavors, and also to our loyal partners over the years, who continually push us to think in new ways to keep on creating innovative and future-safe solutions,” says Lars Thinggaard, CEO & President of Milestone Systems.

Earlier this year, Milestone was presented by His Royal Highness Prince Henrik of Denmark with King Frederik the Ninth’s award for Excellence in Export, as recognition of the company’s success in international markets. In September, the latest global surveillance market report from IMS Research found Milestone Systems to retain their leading worldwide position within open platform IP video management software, for the sixth year in a row.

Sectech is arranged by AR Media International and takes place 17-18 November at the Scandic Hotel Copenhagen.
