Emsec Oy joins Prosero Security Group


Prosero continues its expansion in Finland through the acquisition of Emsec Oy, a leading specialist provider of cloud-based video surveillance solutions operating in the greater Helsinki area.

Originally founded as part of Empower Group, Emsec Oy was established in its current form in 2016 through a management buy-out by Vesa Ylönen (CEO). Since the start, the company has become a technological leader and developed an innovative offering that includes cloud-based Video-Surveillance-as-a-Service (VSaaS) and proprietary analytics reporting software, where sales are based on a recurring business model. Furthermore, the company also provides services to ensure and maintain the security of telecom network rooms and infrastructure.

With a strong value proposition, Emsec has become a trusted long-term partner to customers within the public sector and critical infrastructure, property owners and managers, industrials, transportation and logistics, retail, and residential housing. In 2022, the company generated sales of EUR 2.2 million with 10 FTEs originating from the headquarters in Helsinki.

Prosero and Emsec will together be able to offer top expertise in video surveillance technology, and the acquisition is a further step in Prosero’s growth strategy and will increase the group’s ability to deliver high-quality camera solutions to a broader customer base.

– Emsec is truly at the technological forefront and pushing the boundaries within its field. This acquisition will enable an even stronger and more comprehensive portfolio of video surveillance solutions for our customers. We continue our efforts to deliver innovative and high-quality services and strengthen our position as a reliable partner in CCTV solutions, says Jyri Aho, Country Manager at Prosero Security Group. We look forward to welcoming Emsec’s experienced team into the Prosero family.

Joining Prosero was very natural as we want to develop the company and its services further,” says Vesa Ylönen, CEO of Emsec Oy. Our goal is to become the best provider of video surveillance cloud services in the Nordics, and Prosero offers an excellent environment for this. As part of Prosero, we can serve our national customers even better, and in the future also in other Nordic countries. We look forward to co-operating with other Prosero companies and being part of building Prosero’s success.

Prosero is northern Europe’s leading supplier of technical security solutions, with years of experience and a strong local presence in more than 150 locations in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland.
