Fujitsu begins internal deployment of its palm vein authentication technology
In an effort to drive enhanced security and streamlined operations, Fujitsu is rolling out a large-scale deployment of its PalmSecure palm vein authentication technology within the company.
Palm vein authentication will replace the password-based authentication used by approximately 80,000 employees in Japan to access their virtual desktops. Smartcard-based authentication installed at the entrances to workplaces at two offices in Japan will also make the switch over to palm vein authentication. A field trial with 5,200 employees working at these locations will take place over the next year. Based on the results of this trial, the company will examine extending use to gates and doorways throughout other offices in the company.
Just last week, KbPort announced it will become a value-added reseller of Fujitsu PalmSecure F-Pro biometrics technology. The Pennsylvania-based medical training and teaching community leader will be combining Fujitsu’s PalmSecure F-Pro technology with other biometric technologies to provide students with highly secure two-factor authentication for login to training tools.
