The challenge

State-of-the-art security

ZATCA wanted to increase the security of all Saudia Arabia’s land ports and upgrade them to state-of-the-art smart ports. It was looking to implement a unified access control platform across all locations. And a key requirement was a futureproof, scalable solution based on open standards that would enable adaptations, integrations, updates and growth as their needs change and technologies evolve.


Flexible, centralised control

Centralised, integrated management

They chose to implement AEOS access control, which allows them to centralise all sites on one system. This makes it straightforward to add new sites, buildings, users, cardholders and functionalities across the Kingdom. AEOS also allows easy integration of other systems, such as biometrics, video management, physical security information management, long-range RFID readers and time and attendance monitoring.
