Fujitsu Announces PalmSecure(TM) PC Log-In Kit for North America
Enhanced Authentication Algorithm and Strong Password Management Solution Brings Robust and Convenient Biometric Security to the Small and Mid-Size Business Market at RSA 2008
SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 7, 2008 -- Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a leading supplier of innovative computer products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric security solutions, today announced its PalmSecure(TM) PC Log-In Kit for general availability in North America. The company will demonstrate the biometric authentication solution at the 2008 RSA Conference, April 7-11, at the Moscone Center, San Francisco. The PC Log-In Kit is composed of the award-winning PalmSecure authentication sensor embedded in a PC mouse, and OmniPass(TM) Windows Log-in and Single Sign-On software that eliminates having to remember tedious passwords for entry into Windows sessions and password-protected applications.
PalmSecure generates a unique biometric template that is matched against pre-registered users' palm vein patterns. It is more reliable and easier to use than alternative biometric devices, enabling access to PCs and sensitive data records to become more secure, accurate and efficiently accessed. The PalmSecure PC Log-In Kit contains the latest generation authentication algorithm that provides faster authentication speeds with a user guidance software, and greater tolerance for the distance and angle of the hand when it is placed over the device. With a high level of authentication accuracy, competitive price point and powerful log-in management software, the PalmSecure PC Log-In Kit is an ideal solution for small and mid-size businesses' identity management needs.
"We conducted an extensive search of the biometric solutions available today looking for a non-intrusive, reliable and accurate product," said Grady Johnston, CEO, Tiburon. "Fujitsu's PalmSecure technology allows us to introduce an entirely new option to our customers seeking the latest in identity protection and security management."
"For small and mid-size businesses struggling with security procedures and challenging compliance issues, the need for a biometric device conducive to their work environment is vital," said Joel Hagberg, vice president, marketing and business development, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "With the PalmSecure PC Log-In Kit, applications which require IDs and passwords, or log-ins to PCs, can now be done more efficiently and securely using palm vein biometric authentication."
The PalmSecure PC Log-In Kit will be available through Fujitsu's channel partners in June 2008.
