Top 10 Security Stories From June 2022: Mercury Panel Vulnerabilities, Selling Gunshot Detection

The most popular stories on SSI in June reveal online readers were interested in information that could help their companies become more successful.

The most read story of the month was SSI‘s annual wholesale distributor roundtable. Every year, SSI sits down with the industry’s leading distributors to talk about the trends and challenges they’ve observed, as well as how they can best serve integrators.

Between the COVID-19 pandemic and now supply chain shortages, distributors have had to overcome a lot these past few years. However, they have still been able to bring value regardless of volatility. Also included in the roundtable is a new interactive distributor directory.

Readers were also interested in SSI‘s 2022 Video Surveillance Deep Dive. This report spans the residential, commercial and industrial video surveillance sectors and provides data on projects, prices, margins, verticals, challenges, technologies and more.

On the access control side, a cybersecurity firm discovered four zero-day vulnerabilities in HID Global Mercury access control panels that result in full system control, including the ability for an attacker to remotely manipulate door locks.

And what’s a top stories compilation without some mergers and acquisitions? ADT and Allied Universal, who are no strangers to appearing here, especially when it comes to M&A, both made the list this month.
