Top 10 Security Stories From October 2020: PSA Brushes Off Amazon, Frontpoint Sale

The top stories from October contained more product news than we typically see in these compilations. Could it be integrators are jonesing for some new solutions, or were these just some really impressive products? Check out the slideshow and decide for yourself!

The very top story of the month was the latest installment of SSI‘s always popular installation fails. It really is crazy the work that some people deem acceptable.

Another story that had the web buzzing, especially on social media, was coverage of the ADAPT 2020 State of the Integrator Panel, where PSA CEO Bill Bozeman laid bare his disdain with Amazon’s idea that integrators could serve as the tech behemoth’s installation arm.

“They would like to use our very sophisticated, very powerful — we have over 500 offices just in the U.S. — as a deployment operation,” Bozeman told attendees. “The risk of a project is in the project management, the deployment and the in-field service. The truck rolls. Amazon doesn’t want to do that. I don’t blame them; they are very smart. They just want to sell high margin boxes.”

Also piquing the interest of readers was a slideshow of solutions showcased at ISC West Virtual. The virtual edition of the trade show allowed companies to showcase their products in several different ways, including vendor sessions and a “tech center.”
