AMAG Technologys Newest Symmetry V8 Software Further Developed to Support Federal Government

AMAG Technology, a provider of complete end-to-end security management solutions for access control and video management, announced that its new Symmetry V8 software has been expanded to address the specific needs of end users in the federal government market. While Symmetry V8 meets the needs of many vertical markets, the latest V8 software is specifically designed to meet FICAM testing lab requirements for 128-bit credentials, and has been submitted to the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) for final Federal Identity Credential and Access Management (FICAM) compliant testing and approval.

“The latest version of Symmetry software as a FICAM-compliant, GSA-approved solution is an example of AMAG’s continued commitment to the federal government market,” said AMAG Technology, director of government systems, Ryan Kaltenbaugh. “We are looking forward to the opportunity to partner with federal government agencies in their efforts to comply with current PACS standards.”

AMAG Technology has partnered with HID Global to provide a complete end-to-end physical access control system to government entities requiring GSA-approved solutions. The AMAG Technology access control and HID Global PKI validation solution includes: AMAG Technology’s Symmetry access control software, Symmetry Intelligent Control panels, HID Global’s pivCLASS Validation Engine, pivCLASS Authentication Module (PAM) and pivCLASS RK40/RKCL40 readers.

New Symmetry V8 supports many features preferred by the federal government:

  • End-to-end security management system for 128-bit identifiers to meet FICAM lab testing requirements;
  • Enhanced flexible access rights assignments;
  • Intuitive user interface and full featured base offering;
  • Unified Video Management solutions with leading VMS partner integrations; and
  • ONVIF Profile S Plug-in for expanded HD camera support.

AMAG Technology has been installing Symmetry in the federal government market for over 20 years and supports all branches of the Department of Defense including numerous cabinet level agencies and departments around the globe.  AMAG’s Symmetry Security Management System provides a powerful end to end security solution for government entities needing to meet FIPS 201, FIPS 197, SP800-116 and HSPD-12 standards.

“We are committed to developing products that meet our customer’s expectations and beyond,” said AMAG Technology, senior systems design architect, Adam Shane. “We continue to enhance our Symmetry product line and partner with best of breed manufacturers to bring advanced technology solutions to the market in support of government and other markets that value the ICAM roadmap proposition.”

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 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. This latest Symmetry software release will offer government agencies a security management solution that is easier to use, faster to implement and at the same time enhances security response.
