Fujitsu has announced today that KbPort, a Pittsburgh medical training and teaching community firm, will become a distributor of Fujitsu PalmSecure F-Pro biometrics technology.

KbPort 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. 

The F-Pro biometric sensor, now 50% smaller than previous sensors, offers improved environment tolerance, supporting a broader range of temperature and improved sunlight tolerance.

“Using Fujitsu’s PalmSecure F-Pro biometrics technology ensures that we are protecting the student’s information by using the most advanced tools available to follow the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)guidelines,” said Chuck Miller, president and CEO, KbPort LLC. “By combining PalmSecure with the recording and debriefing components within the KbPort Simplicity Solution™, Fujitsu has allowed us once again to create a standard that others will follow.”

“We are delighted that KbPort will be one of the first users of our updated and improved PalmSecure F-Pro biometric technology,” said Randy Fox, vice president, sales, marketing, product solutions, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “As more activity takes place online like training and highly sensitive information exchanges, a higher focus on ensuring the correct identity of the user will be critical.”

PalmSecure biometric palm vein sensors use a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users. 

Fujitsu’s biometric solutions, PalmSecure sensors, PalmSecure for SSO (single sign-on). and V535 Tablet with Integrated F-Proonly recognize the palm vein pattern if blood is actively flowing within the individual’s vein.
