Viscount Systems will provide its access control system to the Department of Homeland Security‘s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services under two new contracts to secure government buildings in Ohio and Washington, D.C.

The Freedom Access Control suite is designed to leverage the IT infrastructure in managing access points and deploy encryption bridges that assign IP addresses to card readers, the company said Monday.

“We are proud of our continued collaboration with our federal system partners, ” said Dennis Raefield, Viscount Systems president and CEO.

The company won contracts earlier this year to deploy its physical security platforms at government facilities in California and Louisiana.

Freedom Access Control is compliant with FIPS-201 and HSPD-12, Viscount Systems said.
