Third U.S. Federal Government Agency to Deploy Viscount

BURNABY, Canada--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Viscount Systems (OTCQB:VSYS), a leading-edge, high technology supplier of security systems and software, is pleased to announce that it has received confirmation that it's Freedom access control technology is scheduled to be installed at a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hospital facility. This is the third U.S. federal agency beginning to deploy Freedom. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is the largest U.S. government agency outside the U.S. Department of Defense.


"We are pleased to continue to see increased interest in Freedom due to its inherent advantages for government facilities - high security and low cost" noted Stephen Pineau, CEO of Viscount. "This project also demonstrates our advantages in securing medical and hospital facilities. We have invested heavily in designing the most cyber hardened, FIPS 201 compliant physical security system and special applications to simplify access control and alarm management. This investment is now paying off."

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.
