Viscount offers a full suite of security solutions and services that address today’s physical security, regulatory and risk management challenges. Freedom’s patented, web-based software platform leverages an open architecture, integrating identity management and video surveillance. Freedom brings built-in cyber security protection to access control, reduces the cost of deployment and long term ownership, and provides a future-proof, highly scalable platform for unifying physical and logical security applications. Viscount’s Freedom Access Control Solution sets a higher performance standard as the next generation, IT-empowered physical access control system (PACS). Fully compliant with the US Government’s FIPS-201 standard and HSPD-12 initiative, Freedom allows enterprises to manage access control using low cost, IP encryption bridges instead of proprietary control panels, ushering in a new era of “software-centric” security solutions. With the Freedom Encryption Bridge, any card reader can be transformed into an IP-connected device. Access requests are sent as encrypted messages to a local or remote server(s), eliminating the need for high-cost, proprietary control panels. Viscount’s Freedom Encryption Bridges support all reader standards including contact/contactless smart card, proximity, magnetic stripe, barcode and FIPS-201 and can read virtually any credential format. Viscount’s Telephone Entry Systems product line includes a range of options that outpace the competition in aesthetics, resilience and functionality. For more than 20 years, Viscount has been leading the industry under the brand name EnterphoneTM, a durable, user friendly, integrated telephone entry access control solution for any size facility. Building tenants can communicate with visitors and can grant or deny entry, increasing overall safety and security. Today, over 2 million tenants in 35,000 buildings depend on Enterphone for secure visitor management and access control.
