Fujitsu launches new line of biometric palm vein solutions

Categories Access Control  |  Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

Fujitsu has launched a new range of biometric security solutions based on its PalmSecure product line, which features technology from Biosec Group, to enable organizations to replace passwords with biometrics in a wide variety of day-to-day applications, according to a company announcement.

The expanded Fujitsu PalmSecure offering is made up of Fujitsu Biometric Authentication PalmSecure ID Engine, ID GateKeeper, ID LifePass and ID Login V2. They provide logical access control for client computing and applications, and physical access control for data centers and other buildings via a simple and comprehensive API, Fujitsu says. The offering has been realized through the OEM cooperation between Fujitsu and BioSec.

A new central matching server eliminates the need for user enrollment in multiple different locations, devices, applications, or services, which the company says enhances security.

The new solutions are intended to provide all necessary elements for enterprises to quickly and easily implement biometric authentication.

Biosec palm vein biometric products use Fujitsu processors, and the companies have a well-established partnership.

“Biometric ID and palm vein technology in particular are lifting IT security to a higher level,” contends Fujitsu EMEIA Head of Biometrics Oliver Reyers. “There’s no need to remember – or regularly change – complex passwords, and this makes it so much more convenient for users to access secure assets and applications. Fujitsu has applied the principle of simplicity to solution development and deployment. This has resulted in an expanded portfolio of biometric security solutions, which make it easier for organisations to implement biometric identification. Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric recognition algorithm delivers ultra-low false acceptance rates, while central enrollment processes ensure that users can’t bypass security simply by creating multiple IDs.”

PalmSecure provides a false acceptance rate below 0.00001 percent, or one in 10 million, at a false rejection rate of 0.01 percent, or one in 10 thousand, and the contactless reader is hygienic and non-invasive.

“Until now, biometric technologies have been the unsung hero for enterprises, despite their high levels of user acceptance, and the fact that it’s almost impossible to ‘lose’ your biometric ID – which means a dramatic reduction in helpdesk calls for password resets,” says Biosec CEO Péter Györgydeák. “By teaming up with Fujitsu, we have a joint opportunity to help biometrics reach their full potential in the workplace. The new expanded PalmSecure portfolio puts biometric ID within reach of just about any use case, and makes great financial sense for any organisation that’s serious about security.”

The new solutions are available immediately for customers in Europe, the Middle East, India, and Africa.
