AMAG Technology and Identity One announced that their joint solution has been approved by the Federal Identity Credential and Access Management (FICAM) conformance program. Now featuring Identity One’s FIPSlink software as a validation system, AMAG’s Symmetry Access Control platform has been added to the Government Services Administration’s (GSA) approved product list (APL), making it available to all federal agencies for procurement. For more information, refer to AMAG APL listing 10134 and Identity One APL listing 10144.

With the FIPSlink software integration, Symmetry Access Control equips organizations to manage, monitor and secure access to protected resources using technology per the most recent updates to the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS 201-3). Both AMAG and Identity One have tested and certified the integration as part of AMAG’s Symmetry Partner Program. 

“AMAG’s Symmetry Access Control software platform has been approved for use by the GSA since 2016,” said AMAG Technology U.S. Federal Sales Manager Thomas Moro. “AMAG and Identity One worked closely together to customize the software integration to include features and functionality that would provide a seamless, easy user experience for our federal customers. We are thrilled to welcome Identity One to the Symmetry Partner Program.”

With FIPSlink integrated into Symmetry Access Control software, the solution can enable identity validation, authentication and registration of a PIV, PIV-I, CAC and/or TWIC into the Symmetry physical access control system (PACS), as well as provide one-, two- or three-factor authentication by verifying the credential’s digital certificates and matching a live biometric against the templates stored on the card. 

“Identity One understands the unique needs of federal government and critical infrastructure customers implementing smart cards based on FIPS 201-3,” said David Smith, CEO of Identity One. “We are excited to collaborate with AMAG Technology, an important industry leader and trusted brand in the security space, and join their Symmetry Partner Program. Our integration with AMAG’s Symmetry Access Control strengthens the safeguarding of identities and ensures total FIPS 201-3 compliance for AMAG’s dealers and integrators’ end customers.”
