Unica Access Security 10

Tijs Melis, now the director of Unica Access & Security International, is a specialist with over 10 years of experience in the security and access industry. After a successful career in Germany, Melis made the transition to Nsecure, an IT service provider and market leader in access and security in the Netherlands. Nsecure is one of the companies within the Access & Security cluster of Unica. During his time as the commercial director at Nsecure, Melis witnessed the industry transform and innovate. Now, as the driving force behind Unica Access & Security International, he unveils his vision, taking us through the story of his organization that will set a new standard in the world of access management and security.

Melis discusses his move to Unica Access & Security International: "The integration of physical security with IT security is the future. When I first stepped into Nsecure in 2017, it quickly became clear to me that Nsecure was far ahead of the market. That was when I decided that I want to be a part of their journey. Now as the director of Unica Access & Security International, I want to expand what our cluster companies (Nsecure, EAL and YIM) are currently achieving for our clients, both nationally and internationally. The challenges in access and security for globally operating organizations deserve the right, professional attention and the best possible solutions".

 Innovation as a driving force
 
 
Unica Access & Security International approaches access and security services, especially in physical security, in an innovative way. We offer various solutions that together form a strong whole, including remote monitoring, cloud services, insourcing for large organizations, an identity management platform YIM, and capabilities from the EAL platform, such as security management and access control systems. We take full responsibility for access and security processes, maintaining control not only technically but also in terms of service, compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and cybersecurity. This allows our customers to focus on their core activities without worrying about the access and security aspect.

Customization is key  

Melis also discusses challenges at the European level, where local integrators and installers often adopt an outdated approach to new technologies. He emphasizes that the traditional market can benefit from cloud-based services and the use of modern technologies. "It is our goal to help companies with this. In the security world, there are two options: either you have partial solutions with separate cameras and systems, or you are stuck with one supplier with a 'one size fits all' approach. That often means making concessions. At Unica Access & Security International we offer a smart platform that integrates everything but also provides freedom. Our customers are able to choose the security solutions that best suit their specific needs, whether it's cameras, access control, or alarm systems; our platform works seamlessly and gives them control. We also ensure that everything works well together by using standards and protocols. In a time when security is crucial, we make it more manageable, sustainable, and effective. With our approach, we not only give control to our customers but also provide a solution that adapts to their changing security needs."
