Author: John Honovich, Published on Dec 22, 2010

In this note, we examine Milestone Systems financial progress across 2009 and 2010, including an examination of XProtect Essential adoption - their recently introduced very low cost VMS version.

Milestone is regularly cited as one of the largest VMS software providers (in terms of revenue, though this excludes comparison to DVR and NVR appliance manufacturers).
