Fujitsu to resell ImageWare biometric security solutions

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

Fujitsu is expanding its advanced biometric security solutions portfolio through a newly-signed agreement in which it will resell ImageWare Systems’ key security solutions including enterprise mobile biometric user authentication as a service.

Under the agreement, Fujitsu not only extends its biometric identity and access management solutions to mobile devices but also to additional authentication methods including fingerprint, face, and voice recognition.

As a result, Fujitsu customers will now be able to deploy biometric authentication as a service running on the Fujitsu Cloud Service K5.

“Through this agreement with ImageWare Systems, our customers gain access to an enhanced portfolio of biometric security solutions that reduce the barriers to deploying highly secure biometric authentication,” said Thomas Bengs, director and head of Biometrics at Fujitsu in EMEIA. Businesses will also benefit from more choice than ever, both in terms of the technologies they deploy and the ability to offer authentication via mobile devices. Delivering biometric authentication as a service opens up many new use cases and reduces the complexity usually associated with security measures.”

Fujitsu’s current biometric identity and access management solutions, including its PalmSecure palm vein authentication solution, already use ImageWare System’s Biometric Engine as their backend identity storage and matching database.

The same technology is now available as a service, hosted on the Fujitsu Cloud Service K5.

Fujitsu customers can quickly add highly secure biometric authentication to their security processes by deploying the ImageWare Systems GoVerifyID line of products.

Beginning in July, Fujitsu customers in Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa will be available to purchase the ImageWare Systems solutions. Pricing will vary according to country and configuration.

“By taking advantage of our powerful biometrics solutions delivered via Fujitsu’s cloud-based security as a service, many more businesses can easily enhance their security,” said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems. “The potential applications are plentiful: Enterprises can add features such as mobile security for application logins or manage access to controlled areas, while retailers can use biometrics to help prevent fraud or to manage loyalty programs. There are also many potential applications in the financial industry where confirming identity in online, mobile or ATM banking is crucial. Finally, in healthcare, biometrics authentication easily confirms patient identity, accelerating check-in for example during visits to the doctor.”

Previously reported, Fujitsu recently signed an agreement to resell Nok Nok Labs’ S3 Authentication Suite to deliver end-to-end FIDO authentication to the Japanese market and worldwide to its global customer base.
