Milestone Drops Hikvision From Elite Partners

Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 11, 2019

Milestone has quietly dropped Hikvision from their 'Elite Partners', less than 3 years after adding the Chinese government-owned mega-manufacturer.

This comes amidst rising criticisms of Hikvision, from mainstream global media and to UK and US elected officials.

Inside this note, we examine:

  • Feedback from Milestone on why they made this move
  • How it does or does not relate to cybersecurity and Hikvision's Chinese government control
  • Hikvision's status with Milestone now
  • What advantages Elite Partners receive
  • Contrast to Genetec's expelling of Hikvision
  • Hikvision's desire to grow partners
  • Hikvision's promotion of its own CMS / VMS
  • How this may impact Hikvision
