The company name 'VaaS' is poorly known in the space, and should not be confused for the generic industry term VSaaS. However, the company is better known for its subsidiary Vigilant Solutions, previously Vigilant Video, one of the most prominent and controversial providers of LPR.
Thanks - I figured it's not uncommon to do and I'm sure it's incredibly useful for investigations. It still makes me uncomfortable to know that this information is out there and I'm sure I can't imagine one tenth of the ways it could be used nefariously.
This actually makes a lot of sense considering the ICE play. Unless you live in a deep hole, then we’re all aware that the federal government is partially shut down due to a fight over border security, and both sides have indicated a strong desire for a heavy investment in technology here. Maybe the 4.5x sell price is appropriate considering the possible deal that VaaS is expecting in the near future, and Now Motorola gets to capitalize on it as well as open up new doors into this current opportunity at the border.
