Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a supplier of computer products including peripherals and biometric security solutions, announced the PalmSecure LT for single sign-on device, a compact, cost-effective version of the company’s palm vein recognition technology.
PalmSecure LT for SSO technology utilizes biometric authentication for single sign-on access to provide customers in the health care, financial services, government and other industries with logical access control solution. Fujitsu will showcase PalmSecure LT for SSO solution as well as its other offerings in the PalmSecure portfolio during HIMSS10 Annual Conference & Exhibition, March 1-3 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
The Fujitsu PalmSecure LT for SSO solution offers biometric technology with a competitive price point, enabling customers to enhance security while remaining within a certain budget. Fujitsu partners with leading SSO solutions providers—including the recently announced integrated solution of the Fujitsu PalmSecure palm vein recognition technology with IBM’s TAMESSO software—to bolster security and compliance efforts by enabling consumers, government agencies and private-sector organizations to replace archaic password structures with a single path of access that resides in the palms of users’ hands.
PalmSecure technology uses a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against pre-registered users’ palm vein patterns. It is a contactless authentication technology that offers an easy-to-use, hygienic solution for verifying identity.
This vascular pattern recognition solution is reliable and in a form factor that is non-intrusive and generates extremely fast authentication. PalmSecure LT for SSO device connects via USB to any PC or laptop. The SSO interface included enables users to enjoy the simplicity associated with SSO functionality while adding robust biometric authentication to enhance security.
The PalmSecure LT for SSO device is now available for purchase for around $200.
