AETOS Partners Temasek Polytechnic to Train Brunei's Largest Security Firm SPSS
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.”

AETOS Partners CoNEX Healthcare to Transform Elder Care with PreSAGE® Monitoring Solution
Singapore, 18 October 2022 – Leading unified security solutions provider, AETOS, has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with CoNEX Healthcare, a Singapore-based healthcare technology enterprise, to jointly deliver an end-to-end non-intrusive monitoring and response solution to enhance eldercare in Singapore.

Through this collaboration, both AETOS and CoNEX will deploy PreSAGE®, a predictive AI-enabled technology platform that enables non-intrusive thermal image-based monitoring for seniors at home. Designed to operate passively in the background, anomalies such as falls can be predicted and detected, generating timely alert notifications via AETOS’ 5G-enabled Integrated Command Centre (ICC). Upon verification of the incident, operators would then mobilise the nearest medically trained AETOS frontline responder to render the needed assistance.

“We take an integrated view of securing a future that is safer for all,” said Mr Alfred Fox, CEO of AETOS Holdings. “That is why we are going beyond security. Through our partnership with best-in-class partners, like CoNEX, and our work in local communities, we can help empower seniors to age well and live independently. I am confident that our combined solution offering is set to be a game changer that will transform elder care in Singapore and beyond.”

“While PreSAGE® is a key enabler for non-contact and non-intrusive continuous monitoring of seniors at home, collaborating with strategic partners like AETOS and leveraging their round-the-clock monitoring and frontline responder network, will facilitate timely and purposeful interventions should incidents occur. This momentous partnership is set to transform the future of eldercare, enabling more seniors to live in the comfort of their own homes while providing peace of mind for caregivers in their caregiving journey,“ said Ms Tan Swee Yen, CEO of CoNEX Healthcare.
