About asmag Rankings Microsite

Objectives of the asmag Rankings

• To share and disseminate the latest from Security 50, Fast & Furious, Asia 50 and Customer Satisfaction 50
• To facilitate constant communication among security elite worldwide
• To reach out to a wider audience with a dedicated website, mobile app and regularly updated multimedia files and social media

Over the last decade, rapid technological advances and evolving market dynamics have largely changed the global physical security landscape. Some have risen - through organic growth or M&A's - and some have fallen and exited the scene. The highly fragmented and support-intensive nature of the industry means that bigger companies do not necessarily always provide better solutions and services; keeping users in mind, product reliability, customizability and agility are usually the drivers behind any success story in security.

a&s started the original Security 50 ranking in 2003, two years after 9/11, when security was booming as a business and a fairly high number of new "players" popped up all over the map by the day. Solution providers, distributors, resellers, integrators and government/MNC end users worldwide were in dire need to keep tabs on who was who, to do business with and source from credible, genuine manufacturers. As the industry and market shift from analog and wired to digital / IP and wireless, more new names have surfaced to address new niche market needs, in terms of location, vertical and technology. One annual ranking, based on pure product sales revenues, is no longer enough for us to reflect emerging trends, prospects and best practices in real time.

That is why we are introducing the all new asmag Rankings microsite and mobile app. asmag and a&s teams are going to great lengths in collecting, processing and presenting the latest news / financial updates, product releases and feature stories, from the security world's movers and shakers: by sales revenue ( Security 50 ), innovation and growth performance ( Fast & Furious ), Asian prowess ( Asia 50 ) and popular vote / feedback ( Customer Satisfaction 50 ).

It is more than just technology and product promotion; it is also about forging stronger bonds among global security elite and presenting unique, original views on corporate management, R&D, business development, brand building, partner selection and much more.

Virtual Community

The ultimate goal of asmag Rankings is to maintain a virtual community for real-time information sharing and long-term partnerships, and to propel the industry forward. Via the dedicated website, smartphone app and social media, we aim to keep every security professional in the know, on the go, be it the latest financial findings, product/project successes or exclusive interviews and viewpoints.

Multimedia Approach

Catering to today's fact-finding and sourcing needs, asmag Rankings is updated as news or interview findings come in, and can be accessed online, via the mobile app (both Android and iOS) and on Twitter. A myriad of editorial topics and timely findings will be available as articles, charts and graphics, video interviews, social media updates, polls and other interactive formats.
