Viscount Secures U.S. Government Facilities in Maryland and Virginia

Viscount Systems (OTCQB:VSYS), a leading-edge supplier of security systems and software, announced that it has been awarded contracts to deploy its Freedom access control technology, as well as its VeriCert certification software, at U.S. Federal Government agency facilities in Maryland and Virginia. Due to the sensitive nature of these types of contracts, the company is unable to identify the agency.

"We are pleased to continue our work with the U.S. Government,” stated Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. "The security and cost advantages of our Freedom access control technology provide a compelling value proposition. As the U.S. Government continues to move towards increased security requirements at all Federal Government facilities, we expect to see additional contract opportunities.”

About Viscount's Freedom and Liberty Access Control Solutions

Freedom 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.
