Comprehensive upgrades deliver robust integration with Active Directory
Vancouver, British Columbia, March 30, 2016 – Viscount Systems, Inc. (OTCQB:VSYS) (“Viscount”), a global solutions provider delivering physical and logical security platforms, today announced the release of Freedom 9.2.B. Freedom allows entry devices to be connected and controlled by standard building IT networks without the need for expensive control panels or wiring.
Viscount Freedom 9.2.B provides deeper integration with IT architectures to deliver a comprehensive enterprise-class security solution. Real-time authentication with Active Directory allows for instantaneous data syncing from the directory to the card reader and leverages AD to provision access to the physical space. Freedom detects organizational units (OU) and security groups to enable users to choose groups to import, map user attributes, provision physical access to facilities, confirm user validity through AD at every card swipe and more. The comprehensive integration between Freedom and AD allows AD to become the authoritative source for permissions across logical and physical networks.
Freedom is a Web-based physical access control solution designed to fit seamlessly into existing IT infrastructure, and support business continuity planning. Built on a REST API, Freedom acts like most IT applications, enabling businesses to future-proof installations at a lower cost than other end-to-end PACS solutions in the market. It is also flexible enough to support smaller deployments via the Freedom CUBE appliance with a very competitive price point and the convenience that comes with a browser-based software platform.
Freedom 9.2.B is designed to be cyber secure, delivering the ability to create a truly hardened network and authentication architecture and process. Vulnerability is reduced through the elimination of control panels. The Freedom platform is compliant with government standards such as FICAM 13.02, FIPS-201 and more, and is proven in a wide variety of government, commercial enterprise, healthcare and municipal installations across the globe.
“Freedom is unique in that it solves complex operational problems through services like our advanced Active Directory integration,” said Scott Sieracki, CEO, Viscount Systems. “The Freedom platform also has a positive impact on cyber security enabling our customers to realize better, more efficient physical access control and with an overall stronger security posture.”
