Axis Communications Wins a 2016 OSP Award

One of our partners, networked video surveillance firm Axis Communications, wins Outstanding Security Performance Award.

Networked Video Surveillance Manufacturer Wins Recognition for Customer Service

Axis Communications does a great job of keeping a live-streaming eye on our customers’ facilities, through its network video surveillance cameras.

Now they're keeping an award-winning eye out too.

Axis has won one of the first-ever U.S. Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs), in its inaugural ceremony.

What's an OSPA?

OSPAs are meant to recognize outstanding performance in the security sector.  The awards are supported by the International Association of Professional Security Consultants, the National Association of Security Companies, ASIS International, and more.

The first Outstanding Security Performance Awards ceremony took place at the ASIS International Security Exposition in late 2016, in Orlando, Florida.  Only candidates from the security sector are considered.  The categories for which candidates win awards are as follows:

  1. Best In-House Security Team
  2. Best In-House Security Manager/Director
  3. Best Contract Security Company
  4. Best Security Consultant
  5. Best Customer Service Initiative  **Axis Award Winner
  6. Best Security Training Initiative
  7. Best Investigator
  8. Best Security Manufacturer
  9. Best Information Security Manager/Director
  10. Best Integrator/Solution Provider
  11. Best Contract Security Officer

OSPAs are conducted by country.  Right now, there are 8 OSPA Awards hosts: Australia, Germany, Nigeria, Norway, Poland, Romania, the UK, and the U.S.

Axis featured their award in their February 2017 Axis eNews newsletter.

Congratulations to Axis Communications!  As an Axis partner and reseller, we're glad to see their high-quality cameras and operations recognized.
