Viscount Systems Awarded Contract to Secure Large Industrial Facility

Viscount Systems (OTCQB:VSYS), a leading-edge, high technology supplier of security systems and software, is pleased to announce that it has received an initial order for its Freedom access control solution from an international manufacturer and supplier of industrial solutions to a diverse client base including oil and gas, mining and construction companies. This award can potentially scale to a total of 65 facilities owned or managed by this client. The systems to be installed will include Freedom access control running on Viscount’s patent pending Microsoft Active Directory platform and with a Microsoft Hyper-V host, Microsoft’s virtualization platform that makes it easier for a business to virtualize existing server hardware assets and move them to a the Cloud.

“This project demonstrates our ability to use the Cloud to continue to change the way buildings are secured and managed,” noted Stephen Pineau, CEO of Viscount. “Freedom’s capability to run physical security as a native Microsoft Active Directory application or run on a Hyper-V host is a tremendous advantage for us, as end-users continue to migrate physical security systems onto the enterprise network and the Cloud. The technological advantages of Freedom combined with its cost advantages will continue to drive our growth through 2013.”

About Viscount’s Freedom Access Control Technology

Freedom Encryption Bridge is the first and only access control system that allows entry devices (IC cards, RFID readers, biometrics etc.) to be connected to standard building IT networks without requiring expensive control panels that are programmed from a PC. Freedom changes the paradigm of IT friendly access control. It eliminates up to 80% of the cost of traditional systems that require the installation of control panels. And, it utilizes existing logical IT security software (LDAP) to replace both the control panel component and the software component of traditional systems. Freedom drastically reduces system costs while providing a much more secure software solution.
