Viscount Systems Awarded New U.S. Government Contracts
BURNABY, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Viscount Systems (VSYS.PK) (OTCQB:VSYS), a leading-edge supplier of security systems and software, announced that it has been awarded contracts to deploy its Freedom access control technology at a series of Midwestern US Government agency facilities in Missouri, Nebraska and South Dakota. Due to the sensitive nature of these types of contracts, the company is unable to identify the agency.
"We are pleased to continue to make progress in the U.S. Federal Government market, as we are seeing real revenue opportunities emerge from the success of our original pilot projects," stated Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. "The scope of these initial projects is dwarfed by the opportunities for nationwide agency deployments we expect entering the coming year. With the recent release of the new U.S. Government FICAM (Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management) requirements the advantages of Freedom over traditional panel based access control systems will only increase.
About Viscount's Freedom Access Control Technology
Freedom Encryption Bridge is the first and only access control system that allows entry devices (ID cards, RFID readers, biometrics etc.) to be connected to, and controlled by, standard building IT networks without requiring expensive control panels. This eliminates up to 80% of the cost of traditional access control systems. Freedom also utilizes existing IT permission databases (Microsoft Active Directory or LDAP) to replace the software component of traditional systems. Freedom drastically reduces system costs while providing a much more secure software solution.
