About Guest authors

It takes a village . We know there are many views and perspectives on the world of security and surveillance, not just ours. So we want to make Secure Insights an open platform for the entire ecosystem to share their thoughts. We encourage anyone involved with the industry – product developers, resellers, integrators, end users, analysts – anyone with an opinion or view you want to share – to join our conversation. If you have a specific topic you’d like to share, send us a note (blog@axis.com) and we’ll work with you to get a blog post published. We only ask that you keep commercial marketing messages to a minimum – there are other places for that and we want our blog to be an educational and engaging dialogue among professionals about topics that matter most. . On this page you’ll find some our guest authors who have contributed to Secure Insights. Why not join the group!
