Viscount Systems Receives New U.S. Government Award
Will Secure First U.S. Government Sites Outside the Continental U.S.
BURNABY, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Viscount Systems (OTCQB:VSYS), a leading-edge, high technology supplier of security systems and software, is pleased to announce that its Freedom access control technology will secure U.S. Federal Government sites outside of the continental U.S. The systems will include the Company's Freedom Encryption Bridge technology as well as Viscount's enrollment and revocation list software applications. In keeping with government requests the nature of the facilities and agency involved cannot be identified.
"We are very pleased to continue to build our relationship with U.S. Federal Government agencies and to expand the territorial coverage of the Freedom platform," noted Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. "For this and other pending projects we have also added CRL (certificate revocation list) software to our new enrollment platform, which creates additional savings for our agency customers. The cost advantages of Freedom and the fact that it is fully compliant with U.S. Government identity management/access control standards (FIPS 201-2 and HSPD-12), provides a compelling value proposition to government customers."
About Viscount's Freedom Access Control Solution
Freedom Encryption Bridge is the first and only access control system that allows entry devices (ID cards, RFID readers, biometrics etc.) to be connected to, and controlled by, standard building IT networks without requiring expensive control panels. This eliminates up to 80% of the cost of traditional access control systems. Freedom also utilizes existing IT permission databases (Microsoft Active Directory or LDAP) to replace the software component of traditional systems. Freedom drastically reduces system costs while providing a much more secure software solution.
