Hirsch confirmed the award of more than $1 million in orders to supply the Internal Revenue Service with Hirsch security systems and services. The awards are associated with the first phase of a multi-year plan to install Hirsch security systems at several hundred buildings nationwide.
As part of the project, Hirsch will provide card access readers, access control panels, intrusion detection devices, video surveillance equipment and professional services.
The system features include encryption of data at rest, in transit and in use; remote Web access system administration and a fully redundant immediate fail-over server environment.
The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requires agencies to ensure the security of personal information – names, addresses, etc. – that resides in computer systems. As part of FISMA, federal agencies must conduct an extensive Security Test and Evaluation (ST&E) and issue Certification and Accreditation (C&A) only to vendors that meet the security requirements.
