CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hikvision® USA, the North American leader in innovative, award-winning CCTV and IP video surveillance products, is an honored recipient of a Milestone Award from the Security Industry Association (SIA). This award recognizes Hikvision's contributions to the security industry as a five-year member of SIA.
Founded in 1969, SIA was created by large security companies who foresaw the need to support and manage interoperable industry standards, advocate on behalf of the security industry before government institutions, and offer education and training opportunities. SIA also provides platforms for manufacturers, integrators, practitioners and others to network and form business relationships.
Hikvision's dedication to the values fostered by SIA, and its five-year membership in the organization, served as the basis for the Milestone Award.
"SIA has been instrumental in the success of the security industry in North America, and it has been an honor for Hikvision to serve as a member for these past five years," stated Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA and Hikvision Canada. "The incredible growth that Hikvision has experienced in the United States and Canada is due in part to our strong partnerships with industry associations, allowing us to be an active participant in the future of security."
The Milestone Award was presented on April 5 at The Advance, an annual membership meeting and networking opportunity during ISC West, the SIA-sponsored trade show produced by ISC Events. With over 1,000 vendors present, this year's show in Las Vegas from April 6-8 is shaping up to be the largest ISC West in history. Hikvision has the distinction of being one of the largest exhibitors.
The Connected Security Expo, a special three-day event in conjunction with ISC West, will educate visitors on various topics pertaining to network security. Hikvision will be presenting "Cybersecurity and Video Surveillance: Why Now and Who Is Responsible" on the Innovation Stage at 2 p.m. on April 6.
"SIA deeply appreciates the thought leadership provided by Hikvision in forums like ISC West, which is representative of the tremendous contributions Hikvision makes to SIA and the security industry," said SIA CEO Don Erickson. "We congratulate Hikvision on its five-year milestone, and we look forward to collaborating with the company on a wide range of initiatives for many years to come."
