Fiserv to integrate Fujitsu palm vein biometrics technology
Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric palm vein sensor identifies accountholders across multiple delivery channels.
The Fiserv integration will initially facilitate the authentication of accountholders in the branch to provide positive identity verification for a range of activities, including withdrawing funds or accessing a safety deposit box.
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with a company like Fiserv, which provides account processing services to more than one-third of U.S. financial institutions,” said Michi Sugawara, president and CEO of Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “We’re particularly gratified that they have selected Fujitsu’s PalmSecure technology as an option to secure the integrity of their DNA clients’ transactions. We look forward to working with Fiserv to identify additional areas where we can assist them in growing their business.”
Built on Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric technology, PalmSecure biometric palm vein sensors use a near-infrared light to capture an individual’s palm vein pattern.
This generates a unique biometric template that is compared to the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users.
The PalmSecure device differs from other readers in that it does not make physical contact with the skin, which makes it hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin types and conditions.
Registration for PalmSecure technology users takes less than one minute and authentication takes less than one second.
Fujitsu will provide a hands-on demonstration of PalmSecure at Fiserv’s 2015 DNA Education and Technology Conference, held July 27-29.
