Manufacturer Favorability Ranked

Notes:

  • These results, as with all IPVM research, may NOT be used promotionally, as it violates our terms of service and is against our fundamental philosophy of independence and research, not marketing.
  • These organizations were chosen based on our statistics of what our global membership base is most interested in having reviewed. Outside of the biggest 10 or so manufacturers (e.g., Axis, Dahua, Hikvision, etc.), deciding on inclusion or exclusion is difficult as our overall results show low name recognition for most other companies.
