Singapore, 14 November 2022 – AETOS has reached yet another milestone in its transformation journey by clinching seven awards at the Singapore Security Industry Awards (SSIA) 2022, including the highest echelon – the Alexander Henson Security Agency of the Year Award. Organised by the Security Association Singapore, Accounting Professionals, and Asgardian Labs, the SSIA recognises the top security agencies and security projects in the industry; and these wins were testament to AETOS’ strong standing within the industry and among its clients.
Commenting on AETOS’ second consecutive win in the SSIA, Lim Kok Hwa, Senior Vice President Operations of AETOS Holdings, said, “It is a great honour to be recognised as a forerunner and a leading solutions provider in the security industry. This achievement is not only a strong affirmation of the trust that AETOS has established with industry partners and our clients, it also underscores our continuous commitment and efforts to uplift the sector – through advanced ops-tech integration and more importantly, by building a sustainable and multi-skilled workforce. This is a win for AETOS as a group and it will further motivate us to continue innovating, to be trailblazers, and to simply unlock extraordinary value and outcomes for our stakeholders.”
Besides the Apex award, AETOS has clinched awards in other categories including Best Security Training Organisation, Best Security Management Platform Provider, Best Security Consultancy Firm, Best Security Agency (Commercial/Industrial), Best Security Agency (Events Management), and Best Security Agency (Close Protection).

Singapore, 31 October 2022 – Singapore's leading institution of higher learning, Temasek Polytechnic (TP), and leading unified security solutions provider, AETOS Holdings Pte Ltd (AETOS) combined forces to conduct a joint security training programme for Brunei Darussalam’s largest security company, Setia Protective Security Services (SPSS) Sdn Bhd – the first training collaboration of its kind for organisations outside of Singapore.
Peter Lam, Principal and CEO (PCEO) of TP and Alfred Fox, CEO of AETOS inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Monday, 31 October at Temasek Polytechnic, to cement the partnership between AETOS and Temasek Polytechnic - Security Industry Institute (SII). This is the first public-private sector partnership that offers advanced security training programmes that would enhance upskilling opportunities of security personnel in this sector, as well as those beyond Singapore. The collaboration will also see TP and AETOS contributing in the areas of course development, professional training and job placements for the security industry.
The collaboration was kick-started with SPSS with a 5-day training programme comprising security search procedures, technology, digitalisation and Cash-in-Transit operations. SPSS is the largest security agency, with a 1,600 strong workforce and the only agency authorised to provide security services for Government ministries, VVIP locations, embassies and other National Key Points (NKP) in Brunei Darussalam.
The partnership forged will also allow TP and AETOS to explore further collaborations by jointly curating training programmes, staff exchange initiatives as well as job placement schemes to develop customised courses on security technology and other emerging areas such as the convergence of physical and cyber security that will allow full-time polytechnic and ITE graduates to gain a head start in this sector.
Commenting on the newly forged partnership, Mr Peter Lam, Principal & CEO of TP said, “We are very excited to grow this collaboration by leveraging on AETOS’s operational expertise and capabilities to bring our local brand of education and training overseas. By equipping companies like SPSS with the necessary skills and knowledge to enhance their security operations, we hope to enhance the competitiveness and productivity of the security sector while providing better employability outcomes for all the trainees.”
Mr Alfred Fox, CEO of AETOS said, “AETOS is committed to uplifting the security industry in multiple ways, including developing a sustainable pipeline of security professionals. By establishing an agile training ecosystem with industry partners like TP SII, we are well positioned to enable future-ready skills and exciting career pathways for this sector, and bring our benchmarked standards of excellence abroad.”

SINGAPORE, 4 October 2022 - VIZZIO Technologies, a leading provider of the world’s first AI-powered satellite 3D modelling, has signed a strategic teaming agreement with leading unified security solutions provider, AETOS Holdings, to collectively design advanced 3D ops-tech visualisation solutions that will help businesses improve security, safety, facilities management and sustainability tracking.
VIZZIO, a Singapore-based company, was integral in implementing the nation’s largest 3D digital twin within AETOS’ next-generation 5G Integrated Command Centre (ICC) – an AI cloud-based platform that visualises unified operations island-wide and beyond borders onto a single dashboard – based on aggregated data from numerous subsystems. Leveraging outcome-driven digital twins and alert-based automated workflow processes, the ICC empowers assets owners and operators with data-driven insights; enabling unified situational awareness, better asset performance optimisation and faster response to specific security breaches, as well as safety and FM-related incidents.
Backed by the success of AETOS’ ICC, AETOS and VIZZIO will now deepen its collaboration to provide 3D digital twin modelling as well as unified remote monitoring and management as-a-service. This will help expand operational capabilities currently made available to building owners, allowing them to become more productive and achieve outcome-based performance indicators.
“This collaboration with VIZZIO combines best-in-class expertise and leverages innovative technologies to advance Smart Nation initiatives. By redefining how security operations or even facilities management are monitored and managed, we are building a digital eco-system of unified capabilities. We are therefore well-positioned to support businesses in their digital transformation and achieve data-driven outcomes,” said Mr. Alfred Fox, CEO of AETOS Holdings.
“We are pleased to embark on this exclusive partnership with AETOS. Previously, city modelling and creation relied on manual labour-intensive processes - spanning months or even years. Our revolutionary deep-learning algorithms and techniques can automate the processing of commercial unclassified satellite imagery to create detailed geo-specific (not Geo-Typical), accurate, high resolution 3D geographic models and terrains of cities, in just a fraction of the time needed,” said Dr Jon Lee, CEO/Founder VIZZIO Technologies Pte Ltd.
With the growing need for 3D city models for security and facilities management applications, VIZZIO’s ability to create global digital twins (digital replicas of the world) will give AETOS a competitive advantage. For example, by harnessing the capabilities of the digital twin, businesses can not only perform virtual patrols at multiple locations, they can also pinpoint the exact location of the security, safety or FM-related incidents and anomalies.
As part of the strategic collaboration, AETOS personnel will be trained to scan and create indoor / outdoor / street 3D maps using consumer grade cameras. This pioneering process by VIZZIO takes captured videos and converts them into high quality 3D point cloud, 3D geometries, BIM/REVIT and immersive street tours, thereby simplifying the complicated conventional 3D scanning and modelling process.
“The potential of 3D City models is boundless. We can help users analyse the limitations and complications that often impact smart city projects, tap on real-time data feeds and AI predictive analytics to improve energy-efficient urban development, and deliver sustainable digital-first solutions for people, places and the planet,” added Dr. Lee.
