AMAG Technology Attains Second FICAM Approval with Symmetry™ Security Management Solution

AMAG Technology, the security solution provider specializing in access control, intrusion detection, video management, policy-based identity solutions and visitor management, announces its newest Federal Identity, Credential,  and Access Management (FICAM)/ FIPS 201 compliant solution approved by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA).  AMAG Technology has partnered with Technology Industries and Veridt to deliver another complete end-to-end physical access control system to federal government entities requiring GSA-approved physical access control solutions.

AMAG’s Symmetry physical access control software and Symmetry Intelligent Control panels along with Technology Industries’ EntryPoint Identity Management Suite, and Veridt Stealth Series readers that interface with Veridt EWAC module, passed GSA testing requirements. 

“We are proud to offer another FICAM-compliant solution to our government customers to demonstrate yet again our continued commitment to the government market,” said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Government Solutions, Ryan Kaltenbaugh. “Partnering with Technology Industries and Veridt provides our government customers with more choices for their physical access control from AMAG.”

To meet specific security requirements mandated by the US government, security manufacturers’ products must be a GSA certified FICAM compliant end to end solution. The solution must meet rigorous APL testing requirements and integrate with coordinating vendor products to establish compliance with FIPS 201.  Symmetry meets all government requirements for access control and intrusion, making it the perfect solution for local, state and federal facilities.  Our solution is designed around meeting stringent security requirements such as; FIPS 201, FIPS 197, FIPS 140, FICAM, ICD 705, NERC, FISMA RMF, NIST SP800-116, TWIC and others.

“As long time partners with AMAG, it made perfect sense to integrate our best-in-class EntryPoint FICAM portfolio with the Symmetry platform,” said Technology Industries, Managing Partner, Eric Hilde. “With EntryPoint, AMAG’s federal government customers have a tightly integrated, easy to use, and scalable option to meet HSPD-12 access control requirements.”

“We are pleased to be working with AMAG and Technology Industries to bring customers an innovative approach to high assurance identity and access management,” said Veridt, President and CEO, Martin Janiak.
