Viscount Systems, a leading-edge supplier of security systems and software, announced that it has been awarded a contract to deploy its Freedom access control technology for U.S. Government agency facilities in California. Due to the sensitive nature of these types of contracts, the company was unable to identify the agency.

“We are pleased to see Freedom continue to gather momentum as we enter 2013,” stated Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. “We are seeing numerous benefits from the continuing release of Federal Government bid specifications in various states for access control solutions. Our ability to provide higher levels of security at a dramatically reduced cost is the reason we are winning these awards, and why we remain confident in our growth going forward.”

Viscount’s Freedom Encryption Bridge is the first and only access control system that allows entry devices (IC cards, RFID readers, biometrics, etc.) to be connected to standard building IT networks without requiring expensive control panels that are programmed from a PC. Changing the paradigm of IT-friendly access control, Freedom eliminates up to 80% of the cost of traditional systems that require the installation of control panels.
