The installation will include a complete Freedom access control system meeting the U.S. Governments FIPS 201 requirements. This is the company's first Department of Labor installation.

"We are pleased to be continuing to make progress in developing new agency clients in the U.S. Government space," noted Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount.

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.
