Access Re-brand

by msecadm4921

In the USA, access control manufacturer AMAG Technology has released its Version 5 SEIWG products and the renaming of AMAG’s government products, formerly known as SEIWG.

Due to the evolution of the federal smartcard standards, which AMAG developed the first solutions in 1996, AMAG Technology is re-branding its SEIWG solutions to Homeland solutions.

AMAG Technology’s Professional and Enterprise Homeland security management software packages and M2100 Homeland controllers provide features for government customers and are designed, it is claimed, for government agencies and contractors who are working towards the PIV-I and PIV-II levels of compliance with the new FIPS 201 US Government specification.

About FIPS 201

FIPS 201 is a standard published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. FIPS stands for Federal Information Processing Standards and refers to a US government physical and logical access control specification. AMAG claims that it has proven its commitment to the new FIPS specification through its contributions to meeting the security concerns of the US smartcard program for ten years, including an eight year development history around the SEIWG-012 specification and being a GSCIS v2.1 compliant security management platform.

AMAG systems combine access control, intrusion detection, digital video management, alarm management, biometrics and visitor management into an integrated security management system, the makers report.
