Securitas Group becomes a partner of LEGIC

Zurich, December 17, 2009–Securitas Group Switzerland–represented by Securiton AG–is a new LEGIC licence partner. Securiton thus meets growing demand for LEGIC based access control systems and widens its offer to include secure, contactless solutions in the field of personal identification. Alongside Securiton AG, the Group’s companies, Schrack-Seconet, BIXI Systems and Securiton GmbH, are also partners of LEGIC Identsystems Ltd.

Securiton security systems for fire, burglary and attack alarms, personal protection, video surveillance, access control and time & attendance are used successfully all over the world. They are used in high-safety environments, businesses, industries and administrations as well as in private buildings. The integration of LEGIC contactless Smart Card Technology widens the scope to multi-functional, contactless personal identification security solutions.

“Extending the LEGIC licence partnership to Securitas Group companies stems from our excellent collaboration”, said Guido Salerno, manager of Access and Time & Attendance at Securiton. “Above all, our customers will benefit from this partnership: through time dependent access control systems, the highest requirements concerning safety and comfort will be met. The multi-functional technology guarantees extensibility, and therefore future viable solutions.”

Dr Otto Eggimann, Vice President Sales and Business Development of LEGIC, is sure that the partnership will provide important advantages for both companies: “Securitas Group is a globally recognised partner that combines tradition with innovation. Its international customers enjoy flexible and well-established technologies.”
