Integrator Security101 and manufacturer Axis Communications have teamed up for what they call the "Gift of Security", saying they "will collectively donate nearly $200,000 in services and products" to charitable organizations.
Instead of selecting these organizations themselves, they are running a charity contest where people can vote daily for their preferred charities.
Is this a great way to help the less fortunate, a clever marketing stunt for the companies involved or both?
IPVM spoke with executives of both Security 101 and Axis to learn more about this contest. Inside, we analyze the Gift of Security contest to look at benefits to Axis, Security 101, and the eventual winners, in this note.
