Swiss Re - one of the leading global reinsurers - will equip 48 of its buildings with the latest version of AEOS, Nedap’s physical access control system. Through a state-of-the-art badge system, using Mifare Desfire card technology, employees with specific safety and security clearance will be able to access dedicated Swiss Re buildings. The implementation of AEOS is part of the Global PACS project to replace ageing access control systems in Swiss Re buildings around the world.

According to Nedap the AEOS system has been designed to ensure clients of the best possible physical access control. Installation of AEOS technology at the 48 Swiss Re buildings will be done by local partners and supported through the Nedap Global Client Programme.

Zürich-based Swiss Reinsurance Company Ltd, generally known as Swiss Re, is the world’s second-largest reinsurer. Fokko van der Zee, managing director of Nedap Security Management says: “Swiss Re is a unique, landmark organisation, where security of information systems and premises are an essential part of their operations. With AEOS, we deliver a state-of-the-art physical access control system using the latest generation of high-end technology.”

Nedap’s AEOS platform will replace two existing security systems at Swiss Re. Swiss Re’s Head of Group Security, Christoph Teuber, says: “Nedap has developed an advanced and scalable platform that combines security and functionality. Nedap’s specialists have shown great engagement and dedication. AEOS will be our global standard for access control.”
