Tyco Security Products announced as of 13 May 2016, it has acquired substantially all of the assets of Innometriks and 2DogsStudios, developers of high assurance readers, software and mobile solutions for FIPS-201 (Federal Information Processing Standard) smart card credentials.
This acquisition strengthens Tyco Security Products’ position in the federal market by adding the Innometriks team’s open, seamless high-assurance solution integrated directly into Tyco Security Products’ Software House C•CURE 9000 access control and security management ecosystem, as well as enabling the ability to integrate with systems from other manufacturers. This is achieved with an open architecture that moves government credential authentication directly into the physical access panel, and leveraging OSDP (Open Supervised Device Protocol) capable readers. These combined technologies will become part of Tyco Security Products’ access control solution portfolio.
The combination of Tyco Security Products and Innometriks creates an offering that provides a fast, open, modular, and cost effective solution for high assurance needs. The benefits of this acquisition not only extend to the government market, but also to commercial customers who require high assurance access control systems. We are very excited to have the Innometriks and 2DogStudios become a part of our access control solutions and future roadmaps.
