Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leading provider of IT-based business solutions, including advanced technology products, biometric security, and digital media solutions, today announced that it has joined the International Biometrics & Identification Association (IBIA). The Fujitsu PalmSecure™ palm vein technology, first introduced to the United States market in 2005, today delivers industry-leading biometric authentication, identification and security for more than 2 million users in the U.S. and hundreds of organizations worldwide. Membership in the IBIA exemplifies the company’s commitment to provide biometric technologies that set the standard for protecting valuable resources and mitigating business, technology and privacy risks.

“Having served on the IBIA board for years, I have seen the significant benefits of bringing leading biometric companies and security industry experts together to collaborate on how to most effectively promote the use of authentication technology,” said Christer Bergman, vice president of Biometric Solutions, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “Through the ongoing development and commercialization of the PalmSecure palm vein authentication solution, Fujitsu has developed a considerable amount of technology expertise, as well as insight into how customers are using biometrics within their organizations. In joining the IBIA, we look forward to sharing our experiences and knowledge with other members as we collectively work to solve the identity, security and privacy challenges facing companies across the globe.”

Founded in September 1998 in Washington, D.C., IBIA is a trade association that promotes the effective and appropriate use of biometric technology to determine identity and enhance security, privacy, productivity, and convenience for individuals, organizations and governments. IBIA plays a leadership role in bringing together diverse stakeholders to advance policy development and define and articulate best practices for the use of biometrics in solving real-life identity, security, and privacy challenges.

“Across nearly every industry, the need and demand for advanced authentication and access control solutions have never been greater,” said Tovah LaDier, managing director for the IBIA. “We are thrilled to have Fujitsu on board as an IBIA member and look forward to working closely with its biometric solutions group, in collaboration with our global network of members, to meet this demand with innovative technologies. Together, we have the opportunity to advance the field of biometrics to meet security, privacy and productivity needs in ways never before thought possible.”

Unlike other offerings on the market, the Fujitsu PalmSecure technology is a unique biometric solution that utilizes contactless, non-traceable and non-shareable authentication methods to deliver unmatched identification, security and privacy that is virtually impossible to forge. The PalmSecure sensor uses a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users. The innovative PalmSecure technology has delivered proven benefits for organizations in a variety of industries, including healthcare, banking, IT, hospitality and education. It has successful applications in healthcare patient registration, time and attendance management, physical access control, government identity management, PC user authentication and OEM terminal devices, including point-of-sale (POS) systems and ATMs.
