AETOS Holdings was recently awarded the Enabling Mark (Silver) for organizational efforts to create and promote an inclusive working environment – the first security firm to receive this accreditation. The Enabling Mark is a national-level framework by disability support organization SG Enable that benchmarks and recognizes organizations for best practices and outcomes in disability-inclusive employment.
“Building an Inclusive Society” is one of AETOS’ key pillars of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and their dedicated CSR committee regularly plans initiatives to help raise awareness about persons with disabilities, as well as encourage employee engagement and establish volunteerism as part of their organizational culture. Over the past few years, the committee has worked closely with partners and beneficiaries such as Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore, the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped, and the Purple Parade, organising fundraisers and encouraging employees to volunteer their time to help support their operations.
At the organizational level, AETOS’ commitment to workplace inclusivity informs policies and processes such as hiring practices. One such example was the redeployment of former frontline officer Hussen Bin Abdul Wahab, who was placed in a redesigned role created for him after he underwent an amputation due to illness, and attended a company-sponsored upskilling course to prepare him for his new duties as an administrative assistant. Workplace modifications were also made to provide him with greater accessibility and ease of navigation, such as installing wheelchair-friendly ramps and reconfiguring his workstation.
Said Alfred Fox, Executive Director/CEO of AETOS Holdings, “We believe that anybody can play a part in safeguarding our communities. AETOS strives to create an inclusive and barrier-free workplace that empowers individuals; where they are able to maximise the use of their abilities and grow together with the organization”.

Singapore, 30 September 2021 – Integrated security firm AETOS will be enhancing its security operations by leveraging a 5G network and Multi-Access Edge Compute (MEC) from Singapore Telecommunications (Singtel). Enterprises looking to roll out business critical use cases that require low latency now have an option in Singtel’s hybrid Multi-Access Edge Compute (MEC). AETOS will power its surveillance robots, drones, video analytics with Singtel’s high throughput 5G network, MEC and network slicing to achieve low latency for real-time remote surveillance, enhanced situational awareness and decision-making.
Mr Alfred Fox, Chief Executive Officer of AETOS Holdings said, “We are excited to be the first-mover in the security industry to leverage Singtel’s 5G edge cloud platform to augment our suite of integrated solutions. This strategic partnership marks our commitment to being a proactive enabler of innovation, and will help us achieve smarter and more sustainable security outcomes for our clients. We believe that harnessing 5G will unlock breakthrough value in our transformation journey and help accelerate efforts to transform the security industry.”
To achieve high compatibility with as many business critical applications as possible, Singtel has built a hybrid MEC - offering Singtel’s own edge computing solution along with hyper scalar solutions from Amazon Web Services Outpost and Microsoft Azure. This means availability of a wide range of ready to-use, plug-and-play services at the edge to help enterprises rapidly develop and deploy their novel solutions. Additionally, the hybrid MEC is available now on both 4G and 5G network, enabling immediate enterprise trials and commercial deployments in 4G with migration to 5G when the network is available throughout the country. To complete the offering, Singtel also offers on-premise private MEC for enterprises.
Mr Dennis Wong, Vice President, 5G Enterprise and Cloud said, “Enterprises now have the freedom to deploy their business critical use cases confidently and easily without having to worry about optimising latency during roll out. This means being able to use highly mobile devices like drones and autonomous vehicles for business operations, or offer an immersive, hyper-realistic gaming experience with rich graphics and no lag. Applications like these are important first steps, which we hope can have a multiplier effect and that these innovative solutions can be rolled out and applied across industries in the future.”

AETOS Holdings clinched two awards at the inaugural Employee Experience Awards, obtaining Gold in the Best Women Leadership Programme category and Bronze in the Best In-House Candidate Experience category respectively.
Hosted by Human Resources Online, Asia’s leading HR platform and read by over 300,000 users each month, the Employee Experience Awards recognizes organisations that have transformed to adopt an employee-centric approach, and have set industry standards in areas such as leadership, learning, and employee engagement. The Awards saw participation by a diverse range of companies across the region, from global MNCs to local enterprises, and were judged by a panel of senior HR professionals.
The Best Women Leadership Programme award celebrates organizations that adopt a collaborative and open approach to women empowerment and leadership, supporting and nurturing female professional talent while striving to become an equal opportunity employer. AETOS recognizes the importance of an inclusive and diverse working environment and has actively worked to increase female representation at the middle and senior management levels.
The Best In-House Candidate Experience award celebrates organizations that delivers a positive and professional experience at all touchpoints for candidates – throughout the application, hiring, and onboarding processes. Our competitive edge stems largely from investment in our people – be it through training, welfare, or development – and it is necessary that the candidate experience is included in this approach, being the starting point of every employee’s journey.
Said Ms. Irene Tan, Vice President of Human Resource, “We are very proud to have received these awards. Our greatest asset has always been our people, and these wins affirm our commitment to them - from empowering and nurturing deserving talent to ensuring our candidates are well taken care of. AETOS will continue to look for new ways to uplift our employees and enhance our overall employee experience.”
