Tyco Security Products acquires Innometriks
Deal strengthens TSP’s Solutions in the Government Market
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.
Based in Oceanside, Calif., the Innometriks team provides the market leading solution for FICAM (Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management) with an open standards approach that brings benefits to the U.S. Federal government. Founded eight years ago, the company is also known for its fingerprint biometric readers and deep integration into physical access systems.
“We are very excited to be joining the Tyco family,” says John Cassise, CEO of Innometriks, Inc. “Tyco Security Products’ leadership position in the access control market allows us access to expanded financial resources and channel reach. This will accelerate the momentum we’ve been building over the past three years, and brings full value to the investment the government has made in smart card based credentials.”
“The combination of Tyco Security Products and Innometriks creates an offering that is fast, open, modular, and cost effective,” said Jason Ouellette, Product Line Director, Access Control, Tyco Security Products. “The benefits of this acquisition not only extend to the government market, but also to commercial customers who require high assurance access control systems.”
