The security industry looks to the SDM 100 — a group of the 100 largest security companies ranked by their recurring monthly revenue (RMR) — as a wellspring of industry trends and operational best practices. So, which manufacturers and distributors are behind the SDM 100, supporting them with the products, solutions and services that help make them successful?
SDM asked each of the 2019 SDM 100 companies to disclose the top three manufacturers and top three distributors that earn their business, based on volume purchased. The resulting lists, shown here, reveal that the largest security companies in the installation and monitoring channel rely on a wide variety of suppliers with a diversity of technology solutions.
These brand-usage lists were compiled from the 2019 SDM 100 Report. Of the 100 companies ranked, 90 of them listed their suppliers. SDM combined all of their responses, and ranked the manufacturers and distributors by the number of mentions each received. After the top 10 manufacturers and top 10 distributors, mentions were distributed fairly equally among a broad number of other suppliers.
