Viscount Systems Secures Washington, D.C. Schools
BURNABY, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Viscount Systems Inc. (OTCQB: VSYS), a provider of IT-based security software, today announced that the Company's Freedom access control technology is being installed at a K-12 school district in Washington, D.C. as part of a phased project. The systems include RFID readers, Freedom IP bridges, Freedom Raid servers and software.
"We are pleased to be building a strong base of K-12 school projects," noted Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. "Our Freedom access control solution provides much higher levels of security at a significantly reduced cost versus traditional access control systems. With most school projects being retrofits the ability of Freedom to simplify installations and lower costs provides major advantages. This means that schools cannot only deploy access control to secure front doors on the perimeter of a building, as is the norm, but also interior doors to secure access to areas like the school laboratory or principals office. Viscount is committed to improving the security of our children's schools, in the K-12 and university marketplace."
About Viscount's Freedom Encryption Bridge 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 standard building IT networks without requiring expensive control panels that are programmed from a PC. Freedom changes the paradigm of IT friendly access control. It eliminates up to 80% of the cost of traditional systems that require the installation of control panels. And, it utilizes existing logical IT security software (LDAP) to replace both the control panel component and the software component of traditional systems. Freedom drastically reduces system costs while providing a much more secure software solution.
