Nedap knows that risks change, new security requirements are introduced, but business continuity must never be put at risk. That's why its security platform AEOS is designed to minimise risks and ensure a state-of-the art system that secures a long-term investment. They will show this by demonstrating the possibilities and full integration capabilities at Security Essen (booth D12 in Hall 3) from 27 to 30 September 2016.

Truly open platform

It is in Nedap's DNA to offer open solutions. That’s why they allow customers to integrate hardware and software systems of their own choice in AEOS and preserve previous investments. At Nedap's booth, they will showcase live integrations with AEOS software and KABA hardware.

Nedap is also the co-founder of Open Security Standard (OSS) Association, together with for example ASSA ABLOY, Uhlman&Zacher, DormaKaba and Deister. Jeroen Harmsen, Technology Partner Manager at Nedap Security Management said: “The standardisation allows customers to use the electronic offline locking solution of their own choice in AEOS. This is user friendly for those who have to manage the authorisations and convenient for the card user.

"Integrated solutions based on
true open platform technology
are a very important focus area
for us, and the value they bring
to our mutual customers"

Last June, Nedap entered a strategic partnership with Milestone. By means of this partnership, they commit to a deep integration between the Milestone XProtect VMS and AEOS Access Control from Nedap, as well as a close cooperation in their mutual goal markets.

Integrated solutions based on true open platform technology are a very important focus area for us, and the value they bring to our mutual customers. This value is more than the sum of the parts, the integration in itself provides added value. The days of proprietary solutions are gone, today interoperability and community focus is the key to success ” says Thomas Lausten, Vice President of EMEA at Milestone Systems. “Initiatives like this is a clear benefit to our ever growing partner community, as the community gains new possibilities for delivering quality solutions based on true open platform technology.”

AEOS end-to-end security

Nedap responds to the widespread risk of digital attacks on access control systems and is the first to offer digital protection for its access control AEOS. Albert Dercksen, Head of R&D at Nedap, explains why AEOS end-to-end security is needed: “IT and physical security have been following different rules to protect systems. But modern access control systems are, in fact, IT systems connected to corporate networks and should be treated as such.” Taking a forward-thinking new approach, Nedap and its Technology Partner AET Europe combined the best practices of both IT and physical security – resulting in AEOS end-to-end security.

Added value of Channel Partners

Customers who choose for AEOS choose for complete freedom of choice in third party products and solutions. They benefit not only from our developments, but also from Nedap's Channel Partners. Thanks to the open nature of AEOS, our Channel Partners can offer their own solutions based on AEOS. Alliance Partner nTp, for example, uses AEOS as the basis of their security solutions, while offering industry specific functionality such as workflow and dangerous goods control.

Nedap is a manufacturer of intelligent technological solutions for the themes facing society today. Enough food for a growing population, clean drinking water across the globe, and smart networks for sustainable energy are just a few examples of issues Nedap is working to address, always with a focus on technology that matters.
The world of security is constantly changing. Organisations must deal with changing technologies, increasing regulations and tighter budgets. With AEOS, the first software-based platform for security management, Nedap provides the answer to these challenges, so organisations can use their budgets efficiently and effectively and the security system can grow with these changes.
