European Spallation Source (ESS) chose WALLIX Bastion to secure remote access to sensitive international research equipment

Considered one of the largest science and technology infrastructures being built today, European Spallation Source (ESS) is a multidisciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. Located in Lund, Sweden, the construction of ESS began in 2014 with an aim to provide unique scientific opportunities for materials research, receiving up to 3,000 visiting researchers from all over the world annually to conduct scientific experiments in a wide range of research fields.

ESS, owned by 13 member countries, is being built in collaboration with more than 100 partner laboratories worldwide. Thus, ESS needed to provide secure remote access for engineers, external partners and providers to sensitive equipment, enable remote machine installation, and meet Swedish radiation safety requirements.

With WALLIX Bastion, the ESS Integrated Control System team can guarantee secure control of all access to equipment, whether it is in advanced testing or already in operation.
