KeyLemon, Fujitsu ink agreement on biometric authentication

December 5, 2012 - 

Key Lemon, a Switzerland-based provider of secure cloud biometric solutions, has signed a license agreement with Fujitsu, putting KeyLemon’s technology in a new line of desktop PCs.

According to the company, KeyLemon’s aim is to use biometrics to make it easier for users to log in to their devices without the need for multiple of complex passwords. KeyLemon offers the ability to log into your computer when your webcam detects your face, and automatically lock when you leave. It will also automatically log you into websites requiring passwords and recognize your face in a number of lighting environments.

In a recent article in Wired, it’s reported that spoofing attacks are becoming more sophisticated and KeyLemon’s service is easily hacked, using only a video recording of a person’s face.

Fujitsu’ new desktop PC line, the ESPRIMO X, will build in KeyLemon’s face and voice recognition technology to provide users with effective identity and access management.

“We know that companies are faced with access management problems. Employees are expected to remember multiple passwords with increasingly stronger password policies, Dieter Heiss, VP Workplace Systems at Fujitsu said. “With the new ESPRIMO X Line, Fujitsu is able to offer integrated face and voice technology that provides convenient security utilizing the camera module – all you need is a standard webcam and microphone.”

Following the wide success of the Apple iMac all-in-one computer platform, the ESPRIMO X is also a self-contained computer system. The PC features an adjustable touch display and models are available to order immediately in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India.
