AMAG Technology, a worldwide provider of complete end-to-end security management solutions for access control and video management announced recently that 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. 

Partnering With HID Global:

AMAG Technology has partnered with HID Global® to provide a complete end-to-end physical access control system to government entities requiring GSA-approved (physical security) solutions. AMAG’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 US 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,” said AMAG Technology, Director of Government Systems, Ryan Kaltenbaugh.   

Solutions For Federal Government:

“The addition of Symmetry to the Approved Products List is in direct response to our ability to develop solutions for our government customers as their demands change over time,” said AMAG Technology, Sr. Systems Design Architect, Adam Shane. “We quickly engineered a solution to meet the testing requirements for Federal ICAM compliance. The Symmetry product is flexible and we plan to continue to work with the GSA to get additional solutions approved.”

AMAG Technology has been installing Symmetry in the federal government market for over 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.

“Our history demonstrates AMAG’s dedication to the federal government market, and receiving FICAM approval ensures we are committed to being a trusted partner,” said AMAG Technology, President, Matt Barnette.

FICAM-Compliance:

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. Symmetry software offers government agencies a security management solution that is easier to use, faster to implement and intuitive, providing faster response times and enhancing security.
