Unified Security Management

The Freedom platform architecture simplifies PACS deployments, by moving it in harmony with the technology direction that IT has been going for years—a proven direction that organizations have been investing in successfully for some time.

Securing geographically distributed, diverse facilities such as manufacturing operations, sales offices, research and development, and data centers requires advanced technology coupled with ease of deployment.  Freedom Enterprise is a next-generation Physical Access Control System (PACS) application platform that leverages an open architecture and integrates a range of security management functions and devices. With Freedom, companies can build integrated access control and video management systems under one centrally managed or distributed network. Freedom expands as the security needs and physical footprint of the organization change, enabling it to build large physical security networks without requiring any additional investment in communication infrastructure.

Organizations of any size can integrate physical security devices such as card readers, ID management, visitor entry, alarm points, and video applications. Video management systems can be easily added to Freedom for a single, unified system. Another unique advantage inherent on the Freedom software platform is an open API for third-party technology partners or the enterprise’s IT department for specialized or custom integrations.

The Freedom platform architecture simplifies PACS deployments, by moving it in harmony with the technology direction that IT has been going for years—a proven direction that organizations have been investing in successfully for some time.

At the infrastructure level, Freedom is IT-centric, meaning that it takes maximum advantage of the capabilities of an organization’s IT infrastructure. That includes not only computing and networking functionality, but also infrastructure management functionality, and network and computer (cyber) security. It can be deployed throughout the enterprise like any other business application that utilizes networked end point devices.

At the application level, Freedom is IT-aligned in support of the customer’s preferred approaches to identity, credential and access management (ICAM), and can be easily integrated to relevant business systems.

Business Continuity

Integration with current and future
IT Security and business systems,
can be targeted to address security
improvements on a risk-prioritized basis,
without feasibility or affordability
constraints due to former hardware-
centric system limitations.

Superior Total Cost of Ownership

Freedom can achieve a much lower Total Cost of Ownership both now and in the future than today’s hardware-centric PAC architecture can provide, based upon:

  • Eliminating unnecessary physical access control hardware and vastly simplifying system deployment
  • Eliminating the typically hidden costs of firmware and hardware upgrades, version compatibility issues
  • Maximizing the utilization of existing IT infrastructure, conforming to IT policies for system security and resilience, and being deployable in the same manner that IT deploys other business systems
  • Providing high interoperability through native support of standards such as those relating to FIPS-201, PIV and PIV-I
  • Enabling unified logical/physical identity, credentialing and access management through software components that are easily integrated with other business systems
  • Being a platform architecturally ready to incorporate emerging identity, credential, and access control technologies

Why Freedom

Freedom’s software-centric application platform allows seamless unification of the physical and logical security worlds by replacing discrete, self-contained systems with an integrated security system that is sophisticated enough to protect today’s critical business assets, and flexible enough to keep up with the evolving IT infrastructures of government and private organizations.
