Systems Include New FIPS 201 User Enrollment Platform
Burnaby, British Columbia CANADA, January 08, 2013 /FSC/ - Viscount Systems Inc. (OTC Markets: VSYS)a leading-edge, high technology supplier of security systems and software, is pleased to announce that Viscount's Freedom access control system has been installed at U.S. Federal Government facilities in two additional states. The systems include both Freedom Encryption bridge technology as well as Viscount's new Freedom security user and card enrollment platform. At the request of the government the nature of the facilities and agency involved cannot be identified.
"We continue to make progress in making Freedom the new defacto standard for securing Federal Government facilities," commented Stephen Pineau president and CEO." Following successful pilot projects that demonstrated
our ability to save agencies up to 80% of the cost of traditional access control systems, while providing significantly higher levels of security, we are now moving to ongoing projects that are specifying Freedom as the required product."
"An important aspect of the new contracts is the inclusion of our new enrollment platform," continued Mr. Pineau. "Early on the IT departments of these agencies identified our ability to expand the capabilities of Freedom with features control panel suppliers normally don't provide. For example, other suppliers typically rely on expensive third party software for user and card enrollment. We worked closely with the agencies to build these functions into our core Freedom software platform and we now provide savings of over 50% versus third party providers. This is particularly important for thousands of smaller agency sites throughout the U.S. where the cost of the enrollment software has been a serious cost impediment to system deployments. Freedom provides the perfect platform to expand security to all agency sites at a dramatically reduced cost per door."
