AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Intrusion Management Solution Available for Government Applications

Intrusion Detection and Access Control in one reader provides complete system


Torrance, CA, April 6, 2011 – AMAG Technology, a security management system provider encompassing access control, IP video and intrusion detection, announces its SymmetryTM Intrusion Management module, an integrated solution for intrusion detection and access control for Homeland Security applications. Symmetry Intrusion Management (IDS) is powerful, flexible and cost-effective, as well as easy to install, configure and use. AMAG is one of the first in the industry to offer this long awaited solution.

Symmetry Intrusion Management meets all government requirements for access control and intrusion, making it the perfect solution for local, state and federal facilities that must meet stringent security requirements such as FIPS 201, FICAM, ICD 705 and 800-116.

Authorized security guards or personnel present their card to an access reader to disarm the intrusion system and unlock the door, eliminating the need to enter a PIN and possibly causing an alarm.

One easy to use and powerful user interface for access control, intrusion detection and video management provides security officers with an efficient security management system. End users can choose a combined keypad reader to install using the card technology that best meets the needs of their security system. The system is available in the following technologies:

• PIV
• Mifare Classic
• Mifare Plus
• DESFire
• HID iCLASS

End users save money and increase system reliability by using less hardware. Symmetry Intrusion Management eliminates the need to field a heterogeneous system resulting in having fewer systems to learn and manage.

“AMAG’s Symmetry Security Management System provides a complete integrated solution for intrusion detection (IDS), access control (ACS) and video management (VMS), providing a cost savings and simplifying overall security,” said AMAG Technology’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Matt Barnette.

System benefits:

• Present one card to a reader to disarm and unlock the door
• Easy to use common user interface for the ACS and IDS
• Fewer systems to learn
• Less chance of false alarms by removing the need for cumbersome entry procedures
• Single cardholder database simplifies administrative functions
