STANLEY Security and 3xLOGIC, Inc., today announced a definitive agreement where 3xLOGIC will assume ownership of research and development, technical support and certain marketing activities for products developed under the Sonitrol® brand.

Note: In July of 2008, Stanley Convergent Security Solutions, Inc. [a subsidiary of Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (NYSE: SWK) (f/k/a The Stanley Works)] headquartered in Naperville, Illinois, purchased all shares and equity of Sonitrol Corporation, Inc. along with the rights of the Sonitrol brand as the Sonitrol franchisor. The acquisition included a Sonitrol corporate customer base of approximately 55,000 accounts. The acquisition of Sonitrol Corporation by Stanley CSS did not include the independent Sonitrol franchise businesses. These businesses act independently, being solely owned and operated as Sonitrol franchises across North America. The independent franchises provide Sonitrol security products and solutions, including Sonitrol access control and Sonitrol audio verification intrusion protection in their designated territories. Although Stanley CSS and its franchise partners are separate entities, we all share the common goal of promoting and providing Sonitrol products and services across North America. In some markets Stanley CSS operates its own corporately owned branch offices; but in locations where an authorized Sonitrol franchise also operates – you can only purchase Sonitrol products and services through the franchise.

Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
