Axis Criticizes OEMs: "When You Buy An Axis Camera, An Axis Camera Is What You Get!"

Author: Brian Karas, Published on May 19, 2017

When you buy a Honeywell camera, you likely get a Hikvision, Dahua or some other company's product.

The same goes for easily 100 different 'manufacturers' as we covered in our Dahua OEM directory and Hikvision OEM directory.

Axis is taking aim at this in their cybersecurity training program. Axis highlights the usual weaknesses of default passwords and out of date software, but goes on to describe OEM/ODM products as risky choices for customers concerned about cyber security.

Axis describes their development/manufacturing approach as one where the customer receives a genuine product, implying that products sold under other well-known brands (e.g., Honeywell) may not actually be the engineering effort of those companies:

In this report we analyze Axis' claims of OEM risk.
