Viscount Systems, a leading-edge supplier of security systems and software, this morning announced that its Freedom access control system has been installed at U.S. Federal Government facilities in two additional states. The systems include both Freedom Encryption bridge technology as well as Viscount's new Freedom security user and card enrollment platform. Due to security precautions, the nature of the facilities and agency involved were not identified.
"We continue to make progress in making Freedom the new defacto standard for securing Federal Government facilities," commented Stephen Pineau, president and CEO." Following successful pilot projects that demonstrated our ability to save agencies up to 80% of the cost of traditional access control systems, while providing significantly higher levels of security, we are now moving to ongoing projects that are specifying Freedom as the required product."
"An important aspect of the new contracts is the inclusion of our new enrollment platform," added Mr. Pineau. "Early on the IT departments of these agencies identified our ability to expand the capabilities of Freedom with features control panel suppliers normally don't provide. For example, other suppliers typically rely on expensive third party software for user and card enrollment. We worked closely with the agencies to build these functions into our core Freedom software platform and we now provide savings of over 50% versus third party providers. This is particularly important for thousands of smaller agency sites throughout the U.S. where the cost of the enrollment software has been a serious cost impediment to system deployments. Freedom provides the perfect platform to expand security to all agency sites at a dramatically reduced cost per door."
Designing security systems since 1969, Viscount has developed strategic working relationships with leading equipment vendors to support its continued profitability and growth. The company's products have been installed in approximately 35,000 sites in over 30 countries, including prisons, schools, hospitals, government facilities, and corporate offices.
