|Brivo and Vector will be presenting the physical access control capabilities of the Brivo ACS OnSite Aparato at the seminar
Vector Electric, Inc. a Michigan based government systems integration firm and Brivo Systems, LLC a leader in Software as a Service (SaaS) applications for government security management, are jointly hosting an implementation and training seminar at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel in Detroit March 20, 2012.
In 2004, then sitting President Bush, issued the Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD-12) which mandated, in part, that certain compliance measures be implemented by all federal agencies in relation to the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of federal employees and contractors for the overall security of government facilities. Since that time federal agencies have had to educate themselves as to how to best address the directive as it related their individual missions.
To that end Vector and Brivo have been working together since 2010 on the research and development of customer driven solutions for specific government agencies. In November of 2011 a portion of that solution was judged as “top- notch” and received an award for the “Best Integrated System for HSPD-12/ FIPS-201 Compliance” at the Government Security News Homeland Security Awards in Washington DC.
Duane Pittman, President of Vector Electric, Inc stated “Government agencies are being challenged to meet the directive guidelines of HSPD-12. The transition from the legacy infrastructures and protocols to the new technologies and systems, especially as it relates to PIV card issues, must be accomplished in a timely, cost effective and non intrusive manner. Our recent successes at federal buildings in Michigan and Illinois have helped us to model customer driven solutions for technology and implementation that we hope to be able to pay forward to other agencies and government properties.”
On the most current joint endeavor with the Department of Homeland Security- Customs and Border Patrol, John Szczygiel, Brivo Executive Vice President commented “As part of our philosophy of channeling customer feedback quickly into product development, we’re pleased to have collaborated with Vector Electric and the Department of Homeland Security to design a software solution that fits their critical operational needs. The short turn-around on this innovation and its rapid adoption are testament to the quality of our partners and to Brivo’s ability to effectively respond to the needs of our integrators and end users.”
Vector and Brivo will be presenting the newly enhanced physical access control (PACS) capabilities of the Brivo ACS OnSite Aparato systems currently being installed in DHS Land Port of Entry facilities in the State of Michigan. The event will be located in downtown Detroit at the Doubletree/ Hilton Hotel 525 W. Lafayette Blvd. Detroit, MI. 9:00 AM- 2:00 PM.
