WALKERSVILLE, Md.  – Following an extensive testing and evaluation process, System Galaxy from Galaxy Control Systems has earned Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 201 (FIPS 201) certification and is now on the GSA-approved products list in the PACS Infrastructure category.

“U.S. Government agencies rely on the GSA-approved product list to identify solutions that meet the stringent requirements of the federal government, and we are proud that System Galaxy met the rigorous testing requirements to earn a place on that list,” says Robert Laughlin, president, Galaxy Control Systems.

FIPS 201 is a U.S. government standard that specifies Personal Identity Verification (PIV) requirements for federal employees and contractors. Federal agencies may procure only qualified products and services listed in the GSA-approved products list to facilitate the federal government’s objective of a fully interoperable Federal Identity Credential and Access Management (FICAM) architecture.

System Galaxy, a scalable, enterprise-class access control and management solution, integrates security and building management functions. Additional features include active directory support to enable real-time identity management, individualized identity-based door access, and the ability to generate specific reports for each screen view or credential holder, according to the company. Data can be shared with other systems such as time and attendance, visitor management, time clocks, parking garages and personal messaging.

System Galaxy accommodates unlimited users and is also accessible from mobile Web browsers and designed for backward compatibility with all legacy Galaxy systems, according to the company.
