MDI Acquired/Merged

By: John Honovich, Published on Aug 14, 2009

Security manufacturer MDI is being purchased/merged with a Qatar integrator (Almana Networks).

MDI is a small to mid size US based company with some substantial US government/military deployments (I believe mostly access but some video as well). MDI caused some controversy last year when they announced they returned to profitability by selling direct to end users.
