ASIS News December 2016


The ASIS Accolades, a highly respected awards competition from ASIS International, recognizes new ventures that are destined to become security mainstays. ASIS President Dave Davis, CPP, announced the 10 Accolades winners, as well as the Accolades Judges’ Award and Peoples’ Choice Award—the latter of which was determined by attendee votes during ASIS 2016.

Last summer, exhibitors were invited to submit products and services introduced within the past year. In their submissions, companies were asked to describe a problem with existing security technologies, then tell how their new product or service solved the problem or addressed a void. The entries included an analysis of the innovative features of the product or service. A team of judges representing end users, as well as experts in physical and information security, evaluated the entries.

Both the Judges’ and Peoples’ Choice awards went to Wireless CCTV, LLC, which also won a general Accolades Award. All the winners follow:​
