It offers a highly accurate, contactless and easy-to-deploy solution in a convenient form factor that meets customers’ SSO needs at a price point that is very favorable compared to other biometric solutions.”

PalmSecure technology uses a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against pre-registered users’ palm vein patterns. It is a contactless authentication technology that offers an easy-to-use, hygienic solution for verifying identity. This advanced, vascular pattern recognition solution is highly reliable and in a form factor that is non-intrusive and generates extremely fast authentication.

The SSO interface included enables users to enjoy the simplicity associated with SSO functionality while adding robust biometric authentication to enhance security and protect mission-critical information and systems.
