AMAG Technology Promotes Walter Coady

Walter Coady has accepted the new role of technical sales manager of government systems at AMAG Technology, an access control, security management and IP video solution provider. The new position was created to educate and champion the many existing federal government customers, prospective customers and consultants about AMAG Technology and its government compliant Symmetry Homeland product portfolio. Coady has been employed at AMAG since 2004, has vast sales experience in the government sector and is especially astute with the newly launched Symmetry Intrusion Detection System. He reports to Matt Barnette, senior vice president of sales and marketing.

“This new position will allow me to focus my efforts on the government market,” Coady said. “I will have more time to assist our government team with the sales and technical aspects of our FIPS compliant solution.”

“We are thrilled to have Walter move into this new position,” Barnette said. “His technical expertise is an asset for our Government Group and will help increase our footprint in this pivotal market.”

AMAG’s Symmetry Homeland Security Management System is FIPS 201 compliant and meets HSPD-12 requirements. The product also recently received the FIPS 140-2 certification.

In early 2011, AMAG will officially launch Symmetry Homeland V7. Symmetry Homeland V7 features integrated access control and IP video management with a newly enhanced Intrusion Detection System capability that will allow authorized individuals to manage their intrusion system from the Javelin S884 contactless smart card reader. The initial Javelin reader is capable of reading NXP MIFARE and MIFARE DESFire smart cards, as well as PIV, CAC, TWIC and FRAC cards. Additional models will be released throughout 2011. The product is already working in several high security installations and features many enhancements that are specific to the government market.

In addition to his new responsibilities, Coady will continue to provide customer service and sales support to the Mid-Atlantic region.
