Vitaprotech press release

Vaulx en Velin, Tuesday 11 January 2022

Prysm Software, expert in PSIM software solutions and security systems, joins the VITAPROTECH group, French leader in premium security solutions for sensitive sites with the support of EURAZEO.

The VITAPROTECH group boosts its development in security software solutions and strengthens its monitoring division through the acquisition of Prysm Software.

Founded in 1996, Prysm Software is a French software editor of integrated solutions for the global supervision and control of buildings (PSIM – Physical Security Information Management). Based on open standards, the solutions offer great flexibility and ease of deployment, guaranteeing end clients independence and unified heterogeneous environments. The company has a network of more than 150 partners worldwide, trained on its PSIM platform AppVision™.

By joining forces with VITAPROTECH, Prysm Software will be able to accelerate its international development and continue to invest in innovative technological solutions that meet the challenges and technological changes of the security market. This acquisition will consolidate ESI’s activity in software publishing dedicated to the “control command” center, acquired at the beginning of 2021.

The collaboration benefits from the active support of the two companies’ executives and EURAZEO through its Small-mid buyout activity, majority shareholder of the VITAPROTECH group since July 2018.

Jean-Michel BELIN, General Manager and Founder of Prysm Software, remains at the head of the company in a strong relationship with the customers.

I am pleased that Prysm Software can join the VITAPROTECH group, which already has solid references in the world of physical safety and security. The companies are indeed very complementary: VITAPROTECH will be able to increase its activity in the software field by completing ESI's offer with an on-site supervision platform and mutually ESI's solution will be able to enrich Prysm's offer with remote security management features. VITAPROTECH will provide Prysm Software with additional resources to strengthen its international development while guaranteeing its neutrality towards manufacturers.

Jean-Michel Belin, Directeur Général de Prysm

Prysm Software has a very good development dynamic and a unique know-how in control systems recognized worldwide. It markets its solutions through its own brand but also through OEM, a market with a strong development potential. We are very interested in accompanying this development by guaranteeing Prysm Software a perfect independence from our other entities. There are stronger offering synergies with ESI that we intend to implement for the benefit of our customers.
