Company insiders at Verkada, a unicorn startup that sells camera security systems, say male employees were using the company's technology to take photos of female employees around the office and sharing those photos in a private Slack channel, according to an investigation in IPVM.




The company penalized those workers by reducing their stock awards, multiple sources told IPVM.




A representative for Verkada disputed the report, saying it contained "many factual inaccuracies." IPVM is not a news organization, but a research and reviews site for the video surveillance industry.

Several male employees at Verkada, which sells video surveillance systems, were accused of using the company's own software to take photos of female employees around the office and posting those photos with captions in a private Slack channel.Company insiders detailed the incident, and alleged a "frat house" environment that allowed this type of behavior to go unchecked, in an explosive report in IPVM released Tuesday.Verkada uses its own camera security system at its headquarters in downtown San Mateo, California, to conduct customer demos and for security purposes.But a group of male employees used it for other means last year when they took screenshots of their coworkers around the office and shared the photos with crude, sometimes sexual, captions across Slack, according to the investigation.
