Honeywell provides Nomura with a state-of-the-art access control system

Nomura is a top-tier international bank providing investment and merchant banking services to corporate and institutional customers. With ever-present security and terrorist threats, choosing the right access control system to secure Nomura’s offices in London’s Angel Lane was vital. Nomura specified Honeywell’s Pro-Watch security management system and appointed CornerStone GRG to carry out and manage the design and installation process. Universal Security Systems was awarded the installation contract. With the flexibility to support unlimited cardholders and readers with varying access levels, Honeywell’s Pro-Watch Enterprise Edition was a perfect solution for Nomura’s growing business. Integration with Nomura’s intranet system allows line managers to easily request changes to access rights for people in their department.  And compliance to FSA regulations is achieved by managing access rights for employee groups. Andy Williams, EMEA Head of Security for Nomura, says: “The Honeywell Pro-Watch solution is a robust, resilient and flexible security management system capable of integration. Integrating it with our own human resource system and intranet saves us time by eliminating repetitive data entry associated with managing and aligning cardholder information and access rights.”
