Viscount Systems, a leading-edge, high technology supplier of security systems and software, today announced that it has received conditional funding of up to $150,000 from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP).

IRAP support will be used to advance the development of Viscount's Freedom access control platform and to expand system capabilities to a number of key areas, including mobile devices, preparing for U.S. Government full FICAM compliance, enhancing the Freedom Microsoft Active Directory platform, and enhanced encryption.

"We are very pleased to have the support of the Industrial Research Assistance Program," stated Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. "The past several months have seen a dramatic increase in the interest in Freedom for projects that will require additional engineering resources as we improve our technology to meet the stringent compliance and other requirements of our clients. This contribution will also improve our ability to develop new applications. Viscount aims to continue to expand its presence in the U.S. Federal Government space including agency clients within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Such high-profile clients mean we need to accelerate the development of our core technology with a view to readying it for their specific commercial applications."
