Gallagher, a leading manufacturer of security technology, and a Double Gold Award Winner in the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is pleased to announce their Gallagher Command Centre PIV solution has been Nominated to Compete in the 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Awards.
The Gallagher Command Centre PIV solution delivers exceptional security and the fastest form of authentication for U.S. Federal Government customers. With one smart, centrally managed platform, Command Centre PIV meets the HSPD-12/FIPS-201 compliance requirements from both a 13.01 and 13.02 topology.
Gallagher Command Centre PIV is an enterprise-grade Physical Access Control System (PACS) that 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 is the chosen platform for many of the world’s most high-consequence sites and it’s easy to see why.
Across military and defense, federal, state, and local government, commercial, education, healthcare, and transportation, Command Centre’s curb-to-core technology has been proven to protect lives, create efficiencies, and save organizations thousands of dollars each year.
To continue to meet the needs of customers operating in today’s environment, Gallagher reinvests 15% of revenue in R&D annually, ensuring they remain at the leading edge of technology, developing new features and functionality for Command Centre that make their customers’ lives easier.
Regular maintenance releases ensure sites remain protected against any new threats.

A complete solution
Gallagher’s secure end-to-end architecture provides an elegant solution to the FIPS 201-2 requirements with the bare minimum of hardware and software required to achieve a complete system. The modular components, integrated functions, and consolidated software of Gallagher Command Centre PIV ensures it delivers a compliant and cost-effective solution.
Federal compliance mandates are ever-changing due to technology improvements, new threats, and evolving requirements, which means a highly adaptable and streamlined solution is required.
With a simple yet intelligent architecture, the Gallagher PIV solution provides one integrated solution that is easy to install, configure, and maintain. Furthermore, upgradeable device software ensures that Gallagher hardware is future-proofed for FIPS 201 standard changes.
For quick and simple enrollment, PIV Cardholder registration can be made directly from within PIV Command Centre, without the need for additional enrolment software.
Operators can swiftly induct new cardholders who will be guided through a simple registration workflow. PIV cards are then matched to unique PIN’s and biometrics, and when information is imported and validated the user is free to gain access as their clearance allows. For added convenience, integrations are also available to popular third-party PIV registration clients.
Command Centre PIV is an access control solution that does it all. It enables federal organizations to manage complete site security from one highly intelligent platform and has been proven to save time, resources, energy, and money, all while delivering superior security that keeps even the most sensitive of sites protected.
Gallagher security and business management systems are trusted and employed in all major industries across the globe, including national and local government, military and defense, transport and logistics, critical infrastructure, mining, corrections, finance, education, entertainment, and healthcare.

Best Perimeter Protection Solution – Physical
Gallagher offers a range of advanced perimeter security solutions founded on two core principles: deterrence and detection.
Configured and controlled using Gallagher Command Centre, our effective and reliable solutions can be managed and monitored across multiple sites from one central location.
Our cost-effective monitored pulse fence system consists of a grid of energized, high tensile wires that can be constructed inside a new or existing perimeter fence.
The monitored wires detect unauthorized entry or exit into defined areas and trigger instant alerts.
(Gallagher Security’s perimeter detection solutions offer quick and reliable detection of unauthorized entry to your site. As part of a responsive security approach, our sensors can trigger alarms without the intruder being aware, prompting video verification of the intrusion, or triggering an escalated security response.
