Galaxy Control Systems has received new FICAM certification for its System Galaxy Software access control solution and for its CS Infrastructure System Galaxy Software. Both are now listed on GSA’s Approved Product List (APL) under the PACS Infrastructure category. Also approved is the Validation System for Galaxy Control Systems-Endpoint in the PACS Validation System category. This brings Galaxy’s FICAM APL certificates to three, including approved solutions with Bridgepoint, HID, and Veridt.
“FICAM approval of these products further validates the reliability of our System Galaxy access control software platform for use in a wide range of government physical security operations. This is another milestone for Galaxy and highlights our 20 plus years of research, innovation, and development of innovative access control solutions,” said Rick Caruthers, Executive Vice President, Galaxy Control Systems. “Given the growing demand for access management solutions, this approval widens the appeal of System Galaxy to meet those expanding market needs.”
With this approval, Galaxy Control Systems assures that system integrators can meet the access and identity needs of their customers with System Galaxy in accordance with various government compliance regulations including Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) and the Federal Information Processing standard (FIPS 21), among others.
The government’s FICAM program supports the adoption of interoperable and standards-based access control technologies to secure U.S. federal government facilities from physical and cyber threats.
