Japanese tech firm Fujitsu America has announced that it is broadening the area of availability for its biometric security solutions portfolio to now include Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean, along with the rest of the Americas.

The Fujitsu broad cyber security portfolio also includes Biometrics-as-a-Service, the Fujitsu PalmSecure family, the SAMURAI Platform, the RoboSOC (SOC in a Box) solution, consulting services, systems integration services, Security Operations Centers (SOC), and other managed security services. These cyber security products and services are now available across North, South, and Central America.

"As security concerns take on a greater urgency in light of recent high-profile breaches, biometric security solutions are attracting attention among organizations of every description," said Jason Bradlee, Head of Security for the America region, Fujitsu America, Inc. "We are working on a number of opportunities with clients across the Americas, including Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean for biometric solutions."

Biometric identity and access management solutions from Fujitsu, including its PalmSecure palm vein authentication solution, provide security solutions for mobile devices, including advanced pattern matching, fingerprint, face, and voice recognition. With the expansion of geographic coverage, the firm says Fujitsu customers in Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean will now be able to deploy biometric authentication as a service with multiple public, private and hybrid cloud hosting options including Fujitsu Cloud Service K5.

"As organizations heavily rely on cloud adoptions, IoT, and big data analytics as enablers for digital transformations, it is increasingly important for them to take additional steps to secure their infrastructure and data assets by using multi-factor multi-modal access control mechanisms including biometric authentication," says Satya Nanda, Vice President of Security Portfolio & Professional Services, Fujitsu America, Inc. "This geographical extension of the portfolio will enable our customers across additional regions to accelerate their digital transformation journeys."
