Viscount Awarded Contract for US Federal Government Facility in Philadelphia
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 has been selected for a secured U.S. Federal Government site in Philadelphia. The system will include the Company's Freedom Encryption Bridge technology, Viscount's enrollment and revocation list software applications, and Viscount's enhanced alarm management. In keeping with government requests the nature of the facilities and agency involved cannot be identified.
"We continue to work closely with US Federal Government agencies to continue to make Freedom the most effective and cyber secure physical security system available," noted Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. "The original benefit of Freedom for US Federal Government agencies was the cost savings of eliminating control hardware. The system was enhanced to include cost savings on software through being the first PACS solution with built-in CRL (certificate revocation list) and enrollment software. Now, and more importantly, Viscount's vision of physical security systems being an extension of logical security and identity management will give the company a major compliance advantage with the U.S. Government expected to implement many of the core design elements of Freedom with the release of FIPS 201-2 in the coming months."
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.
