Fujitsu Frontech North America has become a member of the trade association, the International Biometrics & Identification Association (IBIA).
Founded in 1998, the Washington-based association aids in enhancing privacy, security, convenience and productivity for governments, organizations and individuals by promoting appropriate and effective application of biometric technology.
IBIA membership asserts the organization’s commitment to protect businesses, resources, technology and privacy risks through quality-checked biometric solutions. IBIA brings together stakeholders to improve policy development and identify the best practices for use of biometrics in security, real-life identity and privacy challenges.
The Fujitsu PalmSecure is a palm vein technology, which has been delivering accurate biometric authentication and security for over 2 million users in the United States and other organizations since 2005.
The biometric solution from Fujitsu uses non-traceable, contactless and non-shareable authentication techniques to provide optimum security, identification and privacy. A near-infrared light in the PalmSecure sensor captures the palm vein pattern, generating a specific biometric template for each user. The technology has a wide range of applications such as healthcare patient registration, physical access control, time and attendance management, PC user authentication, government identity management and in OEM terminal devices such as ATMs and point-of-sale systems.
