Verkada Sales Director Says "Come Get Locked In" As They Are "The Only Solution That Can Meet Your Cybersecurity Needs"

And I thought the Verkada salesguy who sent us unsolicited champagne was aggressive. Now, his colleague declares:

The cybersecurity statement is silly at best. There's lots of ways one can meet cybersecurity needs (airgapped networks, VPNs, other companies PTP, etc.).

The 'come get locked in' statement is arguably even more arrogant, referring to our The IP Camera Lock-In Trend: Meraki and Verkada.

Also, see our Verkada Cloud VMS/Cameras test results where the company's service was overall poor.

I find their product interesting but I have lost respect for them.  They are making ridiculous claims about competitors products and the sales reps know nothing about CCTV. You should jump on a webinar...

bashis, although I respect you abilities, probing Verkada for vulnerabilities is most likely a waste of time.  

these guys are just too good, their code is just too clean and locked down too tight to be attacked successfully, by even the best.  don’t even try.

it’s just flat-out impossible, end of story, full stop ;)

IPVM, set up an Verkada system at defcon this year with a sticker saying please hack me.

That's actually a good piece of marketing advice for Verkada.  What better way to "prove" they have the best cybersecurity than to have a bunch of professionals try and fail - they hope, to hack into it?  Could be a hugely successful marketing campaign or a painfully explosive death null but either way it would settle the question right?

They are pushing heavy on YouTube. I have seen their ad pop up multiple times now.

Equally as good. What exactly is a "REAL" security system?
