GEA selects Nedap AEOS as global physical security system
Dutch security and access control specialist Nedap Security recently announced that GEA, one of the world’s largest suppliers of systems for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical sectors, has installed physical access control system Nedap AEOS at its headquarters in Düsseldorf and that the company has commenced a global roll-out of AEOS across hundreds of GEA sites worldwide.
A user-friendly and open platform
One of the world’s largest suppliers of systems for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical sectors, GEA was looking for an open platform to replace its existing access control system – a system that no longer met GEA’s security or auditing requirements. GEA wanted the replacement to be easy to use and able to scale gradually, while offering rich options to integrate with other systems and technologies. AEOS fit the bill.
Global standard with local configurations
Andreas Löhr, Corporate Physical Security Expert at GEA says: “AEOS meets all of our requirements and is enabling us to implement high-security standards, in a wide variety of environments, in a very user-friendly way. It will also support us in establishing a central, standardised global system that we can easily roll out and adapt to our IT environment, and each location, wherever needed.”
Flexible and open to integrations
Frank Hironimus, manager at nTp adds: “AEOS’s flexibility is a huge advantage for big global corporations like GEA. It enables a smooth rollout internationally and can accommodate local adaptations while maintaining overall standardisation. And the fact AEOS integrates so easily means GEA can continue using existing systems and technologies and adopt new ones in the future. We’re really pleased to be working with them as they grow their AEOS environment.”
