Fujitsu Introduces New Biometric Security Solution for ATMs in Brazil
Fujitsu PalmSecure ™ biometric palm vein authentication; ideal solution for financial corporations requiring high-level security
Sao Paulo, July 13, 2006
Fujitsu do Brasil Ltda. today announced PalmSecure™, a new biometric security solution featuring a compact, high-performance sensor that scans palm vein patterns to verify user identification in bank ATM transactions. This pioneering palm vein solution is already being tested internally at Banco Bradesco S.A. ("Bradesco"), the largest private bank in Latin America, with general operation scheduled to start soon.
After researching various biometric technologies, Bradesco chose PalmSecure for its outstanding features, such as high levels of verification accuracy and being non-invasive and hygienic, making it easier to be accepted by customers of the bank.
PalmSecure was developed by Fujitsu as the world's first palm vein-based biometric authentication system. The sensor captures the palm vein pattern of the user and compares it with pre-registered data to authenticate the user's identity. The sensor is compact (35mm x 35mm) and can be safely and flexibly used in a wide range of applications, such as in PCs, ATMs and for building and room access.
