Viscount Systems' Technology Receives U.S. Government Approval
VANCOUVER, British Columbia --(Business Wire)--
a leading provider of IT-based access control software and services,
today announced that its Freedom
Access Control security solution has been approved as a fully-compliant
FICAM solution under the program's Physical Access Control Systems
(PACS) 13.02 topology. Successful completion of FICAM testing ensures
Freedom meets the security and interoperability requirements outlined
within the U.S Government's FICAM testing process.
FICAM (Federal Identity Credential and Access Management) is a
U.S.-government initiative designed to improve the nation's cyber
security. The program addresses network-credentialing challenges and
designs requirements for digital identity, credentialing and access
control across government agencies to ensure IT security guidelines are
met. As part of the FICAM testing process, Freedom underwent a series of
stringent testing processes to ensure the system is not prone to any
type of unauthorized network ccess.
Freedom is a revolutionary IT-centric access control system that
eliminates the need for traditional access control panels. Fully
compliant with FIPS-201 and HSPD-12, Freedom leverages the power of the
IT infrastructure to control access points through encryption bridges
that transform card readers into IP addressable devices. All data is
encrypted to eliminate the opportunity for cyber threats, ensuring a
high level of security is maintained. Network complexity and upfront
costs are immediately reduced due to a reduction in hardware and
infrastructure investments, allowing users to meet strict budget
requirements, and experience immediate and long-term
"Viscount is committed to delivering secure identity solutions to the
federal government and we are excited to announce Freedom's successful
completion of FICAM testing," said Dennis Raefield, CEO and President,
Viscount Systems. "As a fully compliant FICAM solution, Freedom is now
proven as a robust IT-centric physical access control solution that
meets the stringent demands of government agencies. With this approval,
Viscount now has a proven solution available to many other government
agencies that need to meet stringent security requirements in a cost
effective manner. We believe this significantly changes the growth
dynamics for this new technology."
