Security/Access Control

U.S. government agencies are faced with the difficult challenge of complying with evolving standards for secure and reliable forms of identification used by federal employees and contractors. Federal agencies have been instructed to transition to using the PIV credential for PACS and LACS before they use development and technology refresh funds to complete other activities. These systems must leverage smartcard and biometric technology and support identification credentials according to government guidelines. These systems are complex and the company you choose to install and support them must have personnel who have up-to-date training and must be listed on as a Certified System Engineer ICAM PACS. Success By Design has met the CSEIP requirement since its inception in 2014.
Success By Design offers a comprehensive selection of products designed to enable agencies to cut the cost and complexity of Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 201-2 (FIPS 201-2) compliance using a modular hardware and software approach. Our staff has been providing compliant Physical Access Control System solutions for our Federal customers. Our team has proven past performance for migration of legacy Physical Access Control Systems, in addition to our years of experience working within a contracting tier for new construction projects. Due to the fact that requirements change in order to meet new security risks, it is important to work with a company that understands the requirements, has trained and certified personnel and has a record of past performance with projects similar in scope and complexity.
A Physical Access Control System, PACS, is used to authorize and to authenticate the identity of the personnel seeking entry to a controlled area. The verification decision is based on:
  • What you have (card, NFC, key-fob)
  • What you know (personal identification number)
  • Who you are (biometrics)
Combinations of entry control technology can be used effectively to protect access to a facility or controlled area.
