Viscount Systems Receives Microsoft “Be What's Next” Award

Viscount Systems has announced that it has received a "Be What's Next" award from Microsoft Corporation for its participation in Microsoft Global Security's Good Samaritan Project that was submitted to the Microsoft "What's Next" competition. The Good Samaritan Project was designed to create a social network of employees to reply to and assist in the event of emergencies by using the Freedom security platform to integrate Microsoft Kinect software with Microsoft Windows phones through an Azure Cloud application. When the Kinect software identifies an emergency condition, Freedom Cloud software is used to identify staff in the relevant Freedom access control zone to send an emergency assistance message on their Windows phone.

"We were very pleased to have the opportunity to work on this project with Microsoft Global Security and to share in this honor," noted Stephen Pineau, President and CEO of Viscount. "Viscount's part of the Good Samaritan project focused on applying Microsoft's leading edge Cloud and mobile platforms to the security industry. This project and our other R&D initiatives have resulted in the company filing numerous patents in the past year that relate to the Cloud, mobile devices, NFC, converged logical/physical identity management, smart cards, identity management and visitor management. As we begin to commercialize these products we believe that we are well positioned to become the leading provider of mobile and cloud solutions to the physical security industry."
