Fujitsu today launches a new, extended range of PalmSecure-based biometric security solutions that the Japanese firm says will consign passwords to history by making biometric ID easy to use across a wide variety of day-to-day applications.

Available immediately to customers in Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa, the expanded Fujitsu PalmSecure offering comprises four main elements1: Fujitsu Biometric Authentication PalmSecure ID Engine, ID GateKeeper, ID LifePass and ID Login V2 for access to client computing, physical access to buildings or data centers and to all kinds of applications via a simple and comprehensive Application Programming Interface (API).

The new offering enables customers to benefit from a very broad range of password-free biometric authentication applications.


PalmSecure enables organizations to step up to the highest level of biometric security, while increasing convenience for users and avoiding costly service desk interactions to reset forgotten passwords.

Powerful integration capabilities allow customers to build ultra-secure biometric control into solutions for physical access to buildings and devices, as well as logical access to specific applications and services.


 

Oliver Reyers, Head of Biometrics at Fujitsu in EMEIA, says: “Biometric ID and palm vein technology in particular are lifting IT security to a higher level. 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 organizations 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.”

Péter Györgydeák, CEO at Biosec says: “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. 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 organization that’s serious about security.”
