May 1, 2014 - 

Viscount Systems has announced that it’s been awarded two additional U.S. Federal Government contracts for its biometric Freedom access control technology, as well as its VeriCert certification software.

“The opportunity to secure additional U.S. Government facilities speaks to the expanding strength of our Freedom product and also to the confidence these agencies have placed in us,” Dennis Raefield, President and CEO of Viscount said. “Whether it’s the cyber security technology itself or the fact that we provide a cost effective solution, we are showing time and again that this is a beneficial business relationship for both parties. U.S. Federal Government facilities are moving towards stricter security requirements and we will be their partner every step of the way.”

Reported previously, last month, in April, 2014, Viscount Systems appointed Michael Pilato to the position of VP Sales and Marketing.

Also, having announced a slew of federal government contracts for its biometrics-friendly access control system in the past year, Viscount also recently announced that it Freedom and VeriCert systems will be deployed at government agencies in Louisiana and California.
