“We originally partnered with Envysion to build the market leader in emerging cloud-based video security technology and software,” said Andrew Dodson, Managing Partner at Parthenon. “With the addition of enhanced product capabilities and increasing market adoption, we were able to grow the business significantly.  We wish the team luck as they embark on their next stage of growth.”
