Viscount Systems gets new federal government contracts for biometric access control technology


Viscount Systems has announced that it has been awarded contracts to deploy its biometrics-friendly Freedom access control technology, and VeriCert certification software at U.S. Federal Government agency facilities in Louisiana and California.

According to the company, this new business represents more than $50,000 in contract value.

“We are pleased to continue our rollout of Viscount’s Freedom Access Control within the U.S. Government, adding another government agency to the Freedom family,” Dennis Raefield, President and CEO of Viscount said. “The security and cost advantages of our Freedom access control technology continues to gain traction as a compelling value proposition combined with increased cyber security for physical locations. As the U.S. Government continues to move towards increased security requirements at all Federal Government facilities, we expect to see additional contract opportunities.”

The Freedom access control system allows entry devices – including ID cards and biometrics — to be connected to and controlled by standard building IT networks.

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, earlier this year, Viscount announced another new batch of contracts to deploy its technology at U.S. Federal Government agencies in Maryland and Virginia.

In 2013, Viscount was awarded FIPS 201 certification for its VeriCert software, which is used to monitor PIV and federal employee ID cards.
