ADT Acquires PSIM Software Provider Proximex
ADT Security Services Inc. announced it acquired Proximex and will be operated by ADT’s Commercial business.
Privately held Proximex, founded in 2004, “is known for its innovations in application software design and implementation,” ADT stated. The company’s flagship product, Surveillint, is an enterprise-class solution that joins and correlates information from disparate security systems into one centralized environment, thereby, transforming massive amounts of data into useable, actionable information, Proximex described.
John Kenning, president of ADT North America Commercial, said the new relationship with Proximex will provide enhanced service to customers and help to further position both companies for continued success.
“Going forward, PSIM will support the growth of our business by serving as a foundation for managed service offerings to our customers,” Kenning said. “This important addition to our business further demonstrates how ADT Commercial is broadening its position as the leading enterprise security systems integrator.”
Proximex will retain its branding, as well as maintain its partner and customer relationships while retaining its management team which will continue operating from the organization’s Silicon Valley headquarters in California.
“Proximex’s acquisition by ADT Security Services Inc. will allow us to help supply the growing needs of the market,” said Jack Smith, president of Proximex. “We recognize that our partners, both channel and technology, are critical to this market and require the best in PSIM solutions as they endeavor to converge their customers’ physical and logical security subsystems and technologies. We believe this acquisition lets us remain committed to the core principles we share with our partners.
“With this new relationship,” Smith continued, “Proximex gains an increased level of service for our partners and vendors. We also can leverage ADT’s scale and assets like their Centers of Excellence for installation and service.”
