Viscount Systems awarded US government security contract

Contract to install access control system allowing entry devices to connect to building IT networks


BURNABY, BC—Viscount Systems, a high technology supplier of security systems and software, has been awarded a contract to deploy its Freedom access control technology for US Government agency facilities in California. In keeping with government requests the nature of the facility and agency involved can’t be identified.

“We are pleased to see Freedom continue to gather momentum as we enter 2013,” said 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.”

Freedom Encryption Bridge is an access control system that allows entry devices (IC cards, RFID readers, biometrics) to be connected to standard building IT networks without requiring control panels programmed from a PC.
