Viscount Systems Receives New U.S. Government Contracts

Viscount Systems (OTCQB:VSYS), a leading edge high technology supplier of security systems and software, announced today that the company has received orders to deploy its Freedom access control technology to secure U.S. Federal Government facilities in California and Vermont. Due to the sensitive nature of these types of contracts, the Company is unable to identify the agency.

“The 2013 year was a critical one for Viscount as we saw adoption of our Freedom IT-based access control technology in 15 U.S. Government facilities, by several different agencies”, noted Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. “We believe we are positioned for accelerated growth into 2014 based on the introduction of new government FICAM standards (Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management) which mandate the efficient management of identities and credentials within secure federal environments, as well as specialist areas such as emergency and first responder services.”

About Viscount’s Freedom Access Control Solution

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 and wiring. This eliminates up to 80% of the cost of traditional access control systems and provides a green, environmentally friendly solution. Freedom also enables existing IT databases (Microsoft Active Directory or LDAP) to replace the software component of traditional systems. As a result, Viscount’s Freedom technology drastically reduces system costs while providing a much more secure access control solution.
