Milestone to Extend Training, Certification Offerings With Connex Buy

Milestone Systems has purchased all outstanding shares of Connex Int’l, a surveillance training, certification and consulting company for an undisclosed amount.




BEAVERTON, Ore. — Milestone Systems has purchased all outstanding shares of Connex Int’l, a surveillance training, certification and consulting company for an undisclosed amount.

Connex has managed and performed Milestone channel partner training and offered certification testing and documentation of Milestone Solution Partner integrations with the XProtect open platform.

Since 2010, Milestone has served as a majority stakeholder in Connex. The need for continued education in the physical security space to further enable the trend from analog to IP technology prompted Milestone to fully invest in Connex, says Milestone Systems President and CEO Lars Thinggaard.

“As a key component in our pursuit to serve the clients of the future, Milestone will continue to invest significant resources in the Milestone Knowledge Program and the teams driving our global training concepts to market,” he says. “The full inclusion of Connex into Milestone is a testimony to this strategy. Their services support Milestone partners in delivering the most competitive, well-designed and high quality solutions in the industry.”

Milestone plans to incorporate Connex’s professional consulting services into the firm’s core business.
