"I am a librarian," End User Objects to Verkada's Unsolicited Sales Contacts

By Robert Wren Gordon, Published Jan 13, 2022, 11:04am EST

Verkada contacted dozens of employees of the Dallas Independent School District, including nearly 4,000 emails sent and multiple cold calls to many in non-security-related roles, prompting one exasperated librarian to ask a top Verkada sales executive to stop contacting her.

IPVM analyzed more than 3,900 pages of emails from Verkada to the school district for this report, which included electronic messages to dozens of non-security-related employees.
