Fujitsu’s biometric security solution gaining traction in Australian market

April 17, 2015 - 

Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric security solution has recently been expanding its presence in Australia by recruiting several new clients, including Digital Sense’s Brisbane-based data center, according to a report by ARN.

The company is also in talks with a major Australian bank, and is currently operating a pilot in New Zealand with a healthcare provider.

Based on Fujitsu’s proprietary biometric sensor, PalmSecure measures vein patterns and blood flow in an individual’s hand, ensuring a more secure authentication method than passwords, facial recognition technology, or fingerprint and retinal scanners, said the company.

The company has been selling Palmsecure as a ready to run solution via several Australian channel partners.

Fujitsu is currently working with PSQ Group in Western Australia to develop a cardless solution for Seasons Apartment Hotel Group for its 800-unit property site.

Additionally, Fujitsu is developing a biometric access control solution with Aervision Technologies for the Gold Coast City Council.

The company is also working with Lookup.com.au to develop a biometric access control system solution for the technology solutions reseller.

Finally, Queensland based data centre operator Digital Sense is using Fujitsu Palmsecure to provide 256bit encryption security for access to its site, as well as monitoring users so that vendors and partners know exactly who accessed what specific area.
