PCSC named master distributor for Fujitsu palm vein biometric physical access control solutions
California based PCSC has been named the master distributor for Fujitsu’s PalmEntry and PalmEntry XS physical access control solutions effective immediately.
Both PalmEntry and PalmEntryXS are based on Fujitsu’s award-winning PalmSecure palm vein biometrics technology.
PCSC is a designer and manufacturer of access control solutions ranging from integrated hardware to sophisticated access control management software, including door entry access, video badging, CCTV control, elevator control, alarm graphics, PoE network peripherals, and video integration.
“We are delighted that Fujitsu has chosen PCSC as the master distributor for PalmEntry and PalmEntryXS solutions,” according to Mas Kosaka, president and CEO, PCSC. “This agreement will allow us to build and complement our existing product portfolio while enabling us to penetrate new markets with our security solutions.”
This master distributor agreement applies only to PalmEntry and PalmEntryXS solutions. Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. will continue to be the primary supplier of PalmSecure technology that includes PalmSecure Mouse, PalmSecure for Single Sign-on and PalmLock for SAP.
“By streamlining the sales channel, we are creating greater efficiencies that will enable PCSC to maintain and even augment the high level of customer service and care their customers receive today, while being very price competitive,” according to Randy Fox, vice president of sales and marketing, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “PalmEntry and PalmEntryXS solutions will be a nice addition to the robust suite of products and services offered by PCSC.”
Fujitsu PalmSecure biometric palm vein sensors use a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users. The PalmSecure device does not come into contact with the skin, making it extremely hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin types and conditions. Registration for PalmSecure device users takes less than one minute and authentication takes less than one second.
Last month it was announced that Ohlthaver & List, Namibia’s largest privately held group of companies outside of the mining sector, employing over 5,500 people in various sectors including food production, beverages, retail trade, property leasing, marine engineering, steelworks and hospitality, is testing Fujitsu PalmVein technology, in an effort to secure SAP data.
