The SDM Systems Integrator of the Year is chosen from a select group of commercial integrators who derive more than 50 percent of their revenue from the engineering, design, installation and/or service of access control, video surveillance and/or electronic integrated security systems. In 2003 Adesta had a total revenue of $20M, with $10.9M of that being security revenue. In 2007 total revenue was $78M with $53M of that representing security. The final 2008 revenue is estimated to land at more than $90M with approximately $60M being security related. Adesta was also recognized earlier this year on SDM Magazine’s Top Systems Integrators Report.
“Being chosen as the 2008 Systems Integrator of the Year is an honor for all of us at Adesta who work so hard everyday to make our world more secure. To be recognized is a tremendous validation and honor,” said Bob Sommerfeld, President of Adesta. “We believe our company is unique in the fact that we are truly a company striving for excellence in convergence, where communications and security intersect. We thank SDM for this award and promise to continue to forge ahead to create a more safe and secure future.”

No firm is better equipped to meet the complex security needs of our homeland than Adesta. I am proud to award such an excellent organization.”
