However, Milestone told IPVM that they did qualify under the terms of the PPP when they applied in April and under its interpretation of the affiliation rules.

Inside this note, we examine Milestone's decision, their explanation, and the debate over who should take this funding.

This is part of IPVM's coverage of 50+ security industry companies that have taken PPP funding.
