By IPVM Team, Published Jan 25, 2019, 09:03am EST

Genetec's favorability moderately strengthed, in new IPVM integrator statistics over their results from 2017, with 2019 results showing solid, but not exceptional, net positive favorability:

In the past 2 years, Genetec has inserted itself into the industry's most controversial debate, taking a vocal stand against 'Untrustworthy' 'Foreign Government-Owned Vendors', most notably expelling Hikvision and Huawei. How would this impact integrator's view of the company?

Inside this report, we share 100+ integrator comments across 200+ integrator responses, examining 7 main themes.
