Fujitsu Lifebooks get a biometric boost from Validity Natural ID sensors


Fujitsu Lifebook notebooks in Japan now contain Validity Natural ID fingerprint sensors – an integration the company says expands authentication options.

“Fujitsu has demonstrated a strong expertise in the development and support of fingerprint sensors used to secure enterprise computers,” Michael Maia, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Validity Sensors said. “With the Lifebook series, this marks the first of a range of mass market Fujitsu products that will be protected using Validity Natural ID solutions.”

Specifically, the sensors have been embedded in the Windows Lifebook models A743/G, A573/G and A553/G, built for corporate use.

“Fingerprint sensors and accompanying services provide both simple and secure authentication for business networks and enterprise applications,” Fujitsu said. “Validity’s Natural ID products with their inherent flexibility fit seamlessly into our designs, allowing us to provide computing solutions that securely connect people and their information resources.”

Reported previously, Validity has other fingerprint sensors embedded in Windows 8 computers, as the new operating system natively supports fingerprint-based biometrics. At TechEd Europe 2013 and Build 2013 last month, Microsoft was demonstrating Validity sensor integrations.

Some Lenovo notebooks and peripherals also include Validity sensors. 

In December, Intel Capital made a sizeable investment in Validity, as a part of the company’s Series E round of financing. Along with other venture investments, Validity’s Series E commitments topped $22 million.
