Genetec now offers multiple FICAM-(federal identity, credential and access management) certified options for its Security Center Synergis access control system. These new options offer nonproprietary, open-architecture choices to efficiently validate personal identity verification for federal employees and contractors. Genetec offers two FICAM-certified options. First, its onboard authentication using Mercury LP4502 controller is an efficient and cost-effective approach to achieving FIPS 201 compliancy. By embedding pivCLASS authentication firmware into a Mercury LP4502 controller, users reduce their hardware expenditure and benefit from a speedy authentication process. Second, with authentication using HID PAM, which is ideal for retrofits, customers can upgrade their existing systems by adding a dedicated pivCLASS authentication module from HID to their installation.
