Barnes Buchanan 2019: Despite 'Strange Narrative' Great Time To Be In Security

By: Dan Gelinas, Published on Feb 11, 2019

A "strange narrative" is being spun, said Michael Barnes [link no longer available] at the 2019 Barnes Buchanan Conference. However, despite that narrative, it is a "great time" to be in the industry.

Barnes gave a 3-hour presentation on the current state of the industry during which he talked about 5 key areas (Growth, Structure, Operating Metrics, Threats, Market Values) that illuminated several themes, listed below:

  • Strange Narrative - People Feel Threatened
  • Data Shows Healthy Market
  • Most Serious Threat Is Complexity
  • Medium Threats
  • Low Threats
  • Fear Could Dry Up Investment
  • ADT & Brinks Underperforming
  • Multiples Healthy
  • Commoditization Of Hardware, But Service At A Premium
  • Incursions from Big Tech and Telcos
  • Growth Up Slightly
  • Move Toward Service
  • Regional Alarm Co Market Share Shrinking
  • Stickier Customers = Lower Attrition

IPVM attended the presentation and examines Barnes presentation and logic.
