Fujitsu to launch multi-factor biometric identity verification device
Fujitsu announced that it will launch its multi-factor identity verification device, PalmSecure ID Match, on a global scale, with an initial launch in the EMEIA region in early 2015.
PalmSecure ID Match is designed to meet a variety of security-sensitive cases across a broad range of sectors including finance, retail and social security as well as other public sectors.
Comprised of a PalmSecure sensor, a touchscreen and processor board with latest ARM technology, along with a multi-card reader solution, PalmSecure ID Match allows multi-factor identity verification by combining palm-vein technology and SmartCard with a pin code system.
The solution is based on the associated SDK, enabling Fujitsu partners and clients to integrate it within their enterprise-to-enterprise applications, such as access control, time attendance, or substitute for passwords within critical applications.
Fujitsu PalmSecure truedentity will be one of the first ID Match applications to be launched in 2015.
The client/server-license-based security software will benefit from PalmSecure palm-vein technology to fully boost security for user authentication, identity management and secured data transfer channels.
Using the same technology currently used in Germany’s electronic identity card project, Truedentity meets the highest international data protection standards by safeguarding private corporate information, protecting it against known attack scenarios.
“True to its Human Centric Innovation approach, Fujitsu PalmSecure is one of the best examples of how Fujitsu is co-creating value with its customers by bringing together the dimensions of people, information and infrastructure,” said Thomas Bengs, head of security solutions at Fujitsu. “Fujitsu PalmSecure ID Match delivers reliable and easy-to-use multi-factor verification for a wide range of applications, enabling organisations of all sizes to protect access, data and payment, while Fujitsu PalmSecure truedentity software extends this protection to secure data transfer as well as the data itself.”
The Fujitsu PalmSecure ID Match device and related SDK will initially be available in the EMEIA region from February 2015, while Fujitsu PalmSecure truedentity will also be globally available in early 2015. Both solutions can be purchased, separately, from Fujitsu.
