Viscount Systems Awarded U.S. Patent for Freedom Security Technology

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--()--Viscount Systems (OTCQB:VSYS), a leading provider of IT-based security software and services, announced today it has received a U.S. patent for its IP encryption bridge, which is used in the physical security system architecture of the Freedom Access Control solution.

U.S Patent #8,836,470 B2 covers the system and method for interfacing access with control. The patent applies to Viscount’s portfolio of encryption bridge devices used in a variety of commercial and government applications across North America. The Freedom encryption bridges transform card readers into IP addressable devices. The complete Freedom solution is a fully compliant FICAM solution under the program’s PACS 13.02 topology, and therefore has undergone a series of rigid tests to ensure it is not prone to unauthorized network access.

“The new U.S. patent for our Freedom Encryption Bridge marks an important milestone for Viscount as it adds IP protection to our significant advances in revolutionizing how access control systems are deployed and managed,” said Dennis Raefield, CEO, Viscount Systems. “The new patent comes at a very exciting time for our company as we expand our reach into the commercial sector markets and secure new partnerships that will benefit from our intellectual property. Innovation is at the core of the Freedom access control solution so this is just the first of several patents currently in process."

Freedom represents a paradigm shift in the approach to access control system architecture by eliminating the need for traditional access control panels. Freedom leverages existing IT infrastructure to control access points through its encryption bridges. Users can be confident that all data is encrypted to eliminate the opportunity for cyber breaches and multiple synchronized servers ensure built-in resiliency. Network complexity and deployment costs are dramatically reduced because of a reduction in infrastructure investments, allowing customers to meet budget requirements, as well as experience immediate and long-term return-on-investment.
