Viscount lands new U.S government orders for access control system

January 6, 2014 - 

Viscount Systems has announced a new batch of orders for its biometric Freedom access control system at unnamed U.S. Federal Government facilities in California and Vermont.

“The 2013 year was a critical one for Viscount as we saw adoption of our Freedom IT-based access control technology in 15 U.S. Government facilities, by several different agencies,” Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount said. “We believe we are positioned for accelerated growth into 2014 based on the introduction of new government FICAM standards (Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management) which mandate the efficient management of identities and credentials within secure federal environments, as well as specialist areas such as emergency and first responder services.”

Viscount Systems has announced that it has landed contracts to deploy its Freedom, Liberty and MESH access control technologies for one of Canada’s largest municipalities.

The company’s Freedom access control system, has also been deployed at a couple of other federal government facilities in the U.S., including a Department of Veterans Affairs hospital facility and a U.S. department of labor facility in Atlanta

Reported previously, Viscount was recently awarded FIPS 201 certification for its Freedom VeriCert software, which is used to monitor PIV and federal employee ID cards.
