Today, Viscount Systems continues its persistent spread throughout the United States with the announcement that it has been awarded additional contracts to secure US Federal Government facilities for the Department of Homeland Security. The buildings – which serve the DHS’s United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) – under that contract are in Wisconsin and Vermont.
These new contracts make up a larger trend of increased contract activity for Viscount, whose Freedom Access Control solution gives agencies a slew of security options that include biometrics.
“The pace of new contract activity with USCIS and other agencies within the Federal government continues to grow,” comments Dennis Raefield, president and CEO of Viscount. “This escalation is based on Viscount’s ability to deliver security solutions that meet the Government’s high compliance standards for performance, reliability and support. We are committed to work with our Federal Systems Partners to provide solutions that not only meet the Government’s rigorous security technology standards, but establish Viscount Systems as a trusted vendor in securing our Nation’s institutions and infrastructure.”
Distinguishing Freedom is its accessibility. In the realm of physical access control, particularly with biometrics, there are a number of adoption barriers faced by customers. Viscount’s solutions allows security to be connected and controlled through a building’s existing IT network. In doing so, the facilities that have been choosing Freedom save on implementation cost and installation time.
Since over the past four months, Viscount has announced federal government contracts in California, Florida, Maine, Vermont, New York, Montana, Indiana and Louisiana.
