Fujitsu has launched PalmSecure ID Login, a new biometric authentication solution that helps organisations secure their networks against unauthorised access, while also reducing the risk of attack from hackers and identity thieves.
PalmSecure ID Login integrates Fujitsu’s highly secure biometric palm vein authentication technology into corporate network environments using Microsoft Active Directory – helping boost IT security while also making it easier for users to log on to their system without needing to remember complex passwords, which need to be changed on a regular basis.
Thomas Bengs, Director and Head of Biometrics at Fujitsu in EMEIA, says: “Passwords are forgotten, lost and get stolen, which makes them a serious vulnerability in any organisation’s security arrangements. Replacing password logins with palm vein biometric authentication technology reduces the risk of misuse from stolen or unsecured passwords, including the worst-case scenarios of catastrophic hacker attacks, identity fraud and large scale data theft. It’s also impossible to forget your credentials, since they’re in the palm of your hand – unlike a smart card, or a difficult to remember password.”
PalmSecure ID Login joins a growing portfolio of Fujitsu solutions incorporating palm vein technology – alongside PalmSecure ID Match, a two-factor authentication system which combines palm vein technology with ID cards and badges – and PalmSecure ID Access, which adds biometric authentication to existing physical security systems.
