PalmSecure technology relies on Fujitsu’s award-winning PalmSecure biometric technology.

Unlike other readers, the PalmSecure device does not come into contact with the skin, making it extremely hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin types and conditions. Registration for PalmSecure technology users takes less than one minute and authentication takes less than one second.
