AMAG Technology Achieves FICAM Approval
AMAG’s Symmetry access control system meets FIPS 201, FIPS 197, SP800-116 and HSPD-12 standards.
TORRANCE, Calif. – AMAG Technology announces its Symmetry security management system has been approved as a Federal Identity Credential and Access Management (FICAM)/FIPS 201-compliant solution by the U.S. General Services Administration.
AMAG Technology has partnered with HID Global to provide an end-to-end physical access control system to government entities requiring GSA-approved (physical security) solutions. The company’s Symmetry Access Control software and Symmetry Intelligent Control panels, along with HID Global’s pivCLASS Validation Engine, pivCLASS Authentication Module and pivCLASS RK40/RKCL40 readers, met the rigorous testing requirements.
Security manufactures’ products must be FICAM-compliant to meet specific security requirements mandated by the U.S. government.
“Achieving FICAM compliance guarantees government agencies that GSA-approved Symmetry products will meet all government requirements and standards, and support our existing customer base while expanding aggressively into other areas of the market,” says AMAG Technology, director of government systems, Ryan Kaltenbaugh.
AMAG Technology has been installing Symmetry in the federal government market for more than 20 years and secures branches of the Department of Defense, Department of the Interior, most branches of the military and many other government agencies. Symmetry meets FIPS 201, FIPS 197, SP800-116 and HSPD-12 standards.
Government entities are required to install FICAM-compliant products to meet their security specifications. Last year, the GSA realigned its Approved Products List requirements with the FICAM Roadmap. To be in compliance, products must meet rigorous APL testing requirements, and integrate with coordinating vendor products to establish an end-to-end security solution that meets government requirements FIPS 201 and SP 800-116.
