|How Viscount Systems Inc. (VSYS) is Securing the Market|
There are several key market factors that offer support to the future growth of Viscount Systems, provider of advanced security systems for companies, schools, prisons, hospitals, and multi-family high-rises since 1969.
• The security industry is under technological pressure to change, pressures brought on by cost requirements, new information security regulations, legacy systems that badly need updating, and powerful new technologies involving communications and networking.
• Existing security systems, based upon aging control panel technology, will become increasingly difficult to upgrade, providing an opportunity for the very few full system providers familiar with IT, cloud, and other options, such as Viscount.
• Information Technology (IT) will begin to dominate the industry, driving demand for security providers that can offer both IT systems and IT skills.
• Viscount’s Freedom system is uniquely positioned to support cloud based security, or to become a link between physical and IT based logical security using Microsoft’s Active Directory.
Viscount currently has access control systems or equipment installed worldwide at 35,000 sites. The company operates from a 12,000 square foot factory in Burnaby, BC, where the company has full board assembly manufacturing capabilities.
Freedom, Viscount’s newest product, is the world’s most advanced Physical Access Control System. Freedom engages Microsoft’s Active Directory for unified Logical and Physical Access Control and provides a platform to natively accommodate the U.S. government’s FIPS 201-2 initiatives. All databases used for logical security are also used for Physical Security, and all identification medium (smart cards or phones) used for logical access is fully implemented for physical access.
Freedom also eliminates the complexity and cost for facility protection. Freedom is a software product that does not utilize traditional Access Control Panels, eliminating cyber security risks associated with such old technology. Viscount’s product controls doors by sending commands to a tiny IP enabled device which becomes just another mac addressable device on the customer IT network.
