Fujitsu and Fujitsu Frontech Ltd have developed PalmSecure-SL, the world’s smallest and slimmest contactless palm vein authentication sensor. A standard portable version and integrated mouse version of the sensor is now available, Fujitsu said.
The new authentication device maintains the same high level of authentication as Fujitsu’s existing PC login sensor technology while also featuring a compact package that is approximately one-fourth the volume. At the same time, the new device incorporates camera stabilization and guideless authentication functionality, as well as a power-saving mode. Apart from enabling the effective utilization of desk space, these features allow the technology to be effortlessly operated even in mobile applications.
In recent years, the need for enhanced security in the corporate environment has become increasingly important. In addition, ease of use and space efficiency are becoming high-priority requirements for customers.
Fujitsu’s new PalmSecure-SL sensor, which provides one-to-one matching authentication, has achieved the world’s smallest and slimmest design for a palm vein authentication sensor. Thanks to the device’s enhanced convenience, it can easily be employed even in environments such as mobile applications.
Fujitsu and Fujitsu Frontech began global sales of contact-free palm vein authentication devices starting in 2005, and so far these systems have been utilized in a variety of applications, including ATMs and security access control. With the addition of the PalmSecure-SL sensor to its lineup of PC Login sensors, Fujitsu aims to support customers in implementing enhanced PC security measures.
