Global security manufacturer, Gallagher Security, has defended Command Centre’s title as Best Integrated System for HSPD-12/ FIPS 201 Compliance with a Platinum award at the 2023 ASTORS Homeland Security Awards. This is Gallagher’s 7th overall ASTORS win and the second year in a row that Command Centre has been recognized in the HSPD-12/ FIPS 201 Compliance category.
“Federal compliance mandates change rapidly in response to technology improvements, new threats, and evolving requirements, which means a highly adaptable and streamlined solution is required in order to serve their needs,” said Jeff Fields, Director of Federal Government at Gallagher Security, who accepted the award at the AST Homeland Security Awards luncheon, “That we can demonstrate how Command Centre continues to evolve alongside those changing requirements year after year is a significant win for Gallagher, and I’m thrilled that this year’s judges have honored us with this title.”
Gallagher’s Command Centre is an enterprise-grade Physical Access Control System (PACS) that delivers exceptional security and provides robust, real-time authentication of all federally issued, high-assurance credentials. It natively supports reading and verifying the complete secure certificate information on government cards and is scalable to meet organizational requirements – no matter how big the site, or the number of cardholders involved.
Command Centre was also recognized by the ASTORS for leading the way in federal compliances and standards in the United States and among the Five Eyes. With one centrally managed platform, Command Centre meets the HSPD-12/ FIPS-201 compliance requirements from both a 13.01 and 13.02 topology, including FICAM compliance, FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation, and SOC2 certification among a long list of others.
As the chosen platform for many of the world’s most high-consequence sites – such as military and defense; federal, state, and local governments; commercial; education; healthcare; and transportation – Command Centre’s curb-to-core technology protects lives, creates efficiencies, and safeguards assets around the world.
“Command Centre is an access control solution that does it all,” Jeff said confidently, “It enables federal organizations to manage complete site security from one highly intelligent platform and has been proven to deliver superior security that keeps even the most sensitive of sites protected.” ASTORS winners were announced at a ceremony at the ISC East Show – the Northeast’s largest security trade show – hosted by the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City on Thursday, November 16, 2023.
A technology leader in integrated access control, intrusion detection, and perimeter protection, Gallagher Security’s solutions protect what matters most within the highest levels of national and local government, military, commercial, industrial, healthcare, transportation, academic organizations, and small businesses in more than 140 countries.
