With ISG’s market leading solutions, we are strengthening our offering and taking an important step by setting up the new business area, Smart Surveillance. Video Surveillance-as-a-Service presents compelling future growth opportunities and the solution is ideally suited for internationalization and new use cases.”

Jörn Windler, Managing Director of International Security Group, says: “For us the acquisition is an opportunity to join an expansive European provider. With AddSecure as owners, ISG can continue to grow and evolve in Europe.”
