In 2008, Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) announced that it had received a formal Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on its intellectual property application regarding the Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. Patents from the European Union, Canada, and other countries around the world soon followed. Most recently, MSSI sought a patent for the Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portal. We are happy to announce that we just received a Notice of Allowance from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office and will soon receive the patent for yet another perimeter security solution.

In addition to filing for intellectual property rights with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office for the Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portal, MSSI has also filed similar applications with the US Patent and Trademark Office and the European Union.

Like the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal, the VAC Portal is a portable perimeter security solution which utilizes the portability of the ISO shipping container to combine security specifications into a transportable, turn-key unit. By combining vehicle barrier gates, climate-controlled guard offices, and access control technology into one turn-key unit, MSSI has been able to help establish perimeter security for customers around the world.

MSSI has released an official position on this patent allowance which states:

This patent application covers our Transportable Vehicle Access Control System. We want to ensure

our customers that the patent allowance WILL NOT impact our product pricing, product quality, or customer service. We remain committed to being the low-cost solution for providing an access control vehicle gate(s) to your sites – and we are dedicated to providing you with exceptional customer service.

We at MSSI would like to use our new patent allowance to enable us to team up with several quality access control vehicle gate manufacturers in cross-marketing efforts.
