Viscount Announces Partnership With DMP
Viscount Systems Inc., a software company specializing in physical and logical security solutions, announced its product partnership agreement with Digital Monitoring Products (DMP), a manufacturer of electronic alarms and access products.
Viscount and DMP have agreed to allow for the integration of the IT-centric access control platform, Freedom, with a number of products from DMP’s suite of open architecture alarm management and monitoring technologies. The companies said that this strategic alliance will enable joint customers to enhance the communication base and integration capabilities between each brand’s best-selling products. Both companies will also gain access to opportunities within their shared large target markets of government, retail, banking and commercial/enterprise.
DMP intrusion products are based on a combination of hardwired and wireless open architecture solutions and offer the ability to connect a variety of monitoring systems together to enhance communication and security processes. The forward and backward compatible architecture of DMP intrusion alarm consolidation systems and keypads allows for further facilitated compatibility with Freedom Access Control’s ability to leverage native IT infrastructures, expanding the reach in both product families of real-time situational awareness, intrusion detection and identity management.
“We believe that the combination of DMP’s intrusion technology with the award winning access control solution provided by Viscount will provide existing and future customers a powerful and more cost efficient option for comprehensive protection with a government-certified access control system,” said Vince Adams, director of market development, government solutions, DMP. “Viscount’s access control solutions are based on IT infrastructure. Customers who already rely on DMP alarm intrusion products and require HSPD-12 access control operation will benefit greatly from the cost savings and even more comprehensive protection that come from a government-certified access control system. Current customers who have a requirement for operating in an HSPD-12 environment can now integrate the time-tested and approved DMP intrusion solution with the Freedom Access Control system for a superior, cost-effective, total security solution.”
Scott Sieracki, CEO, Viscount Systems, added, “Viscount is continuing to gain momentum on its path to growth and collaboration with other manufacturers across the globe, and we are excited to join forces with a well-established purveyor of vital intrusion monitoring devices whose products are relied on for mission-critical applications in a wide variety of markets. DMP’s and Viscount’s product families both offer access control and alarm monitoring solutions separately, but the cooperation of these products’ specializations primes businesses for much stronger security networks that are future-proof and cost-effective.”
