TYCO Security Products has acquired the assets of Innometriks and 2DogsStudios, developers of high assurance readers, software and mobile solutions for FIPS-201 (Federal Information Processing Standard) smart card credentials. 

These combined technologies will become part of Tyco Security Products' access control solution portfolio. Based in Oceanside, California, 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 US Federal government. Founded 8 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," said John Cassise, CEO of Innometriks. "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.” ♦
