Genetec Expands Access Control Offering for U.S. Federal Govt. Clients

The latest version of Genetec Security Center Synergis adds readers by Veridt to its portfolio of nonproprietary FICAM-certified solutions.

MONTRÉAL — Genetec has broadenedd its portfolio of FICAM (federal identity, credential and access management)-certified options for its Security Center Synergis access control system with support of Veridt Stealth access control readers.

Traditionally, the options for federal government organizations to replace a non FICAM-compliant system or to secure a new site were restricted to a limited choice of proprietary solutions. Because Security Center Synergis is a FICAM-approved open platform access control system, customers can choose from a range of nonproprietary choices to efficiently validate Personal Identity Verification (PIV, PIV-I, CAC and TWIC) for federal employees and contractors.

“By bringing these new nonproprietary options to market with partners such as Veridt, HID and Mercury, we are offering government customers a choice of simple-to-deploy and cost-effective solutions so that they can easily comply with FICAM requirements while leveraging the most robust and extensible software solution on the market,” says Justin Himelberger, enterprise systems business development manager — federal & DOD at Genetec.

Veridt Stealth Series readers provide a full complement of capability enabling identity and access management solutions for traditional and trusted PACS using PIV, TWIC and CAC based credentials.

The family of readers encompass both biometric and non-biometric configurations while offering fixed, wireless and mobile platforms. Veridt readers feature a compact design and capability to operate in the harshest environments, according to an announcement.

“We are pleased to work with Genetec to offer our joint U.S.-federal market customers FICAM-compliant solutions that will enable them to comply with the most stringent access and identity federal standards as well as the flexibility to maintain and protect their investment for years to come,” says Bryce Lamers, director of sales and marketing at Veridt.
