PalmSecure™ - Your business easily secured
PalmSecure™, our market-proven biometric authentication technology based on palm vein pattern recognition, has been shown to be one of the most accurate biometric authentication solutions currently available.
PalmSecure™ provides a high level of accuracy, is easy to implement and uses - a non-intrusive and contactless reader. This ensures virtually no physiological user restrictions while proving to be extremely hygienic as no contact to the skin is required. As veins are internal and have a wealth of differentiating features, attempts to forge an identity are extremely difficult, thereby enabling a high level of security.

The risks of traditional authentication methods
There exist several different methods of authentication. Traditional methods are for example passwords or smart cards. But what are the problems about these methods?
Passwords and PIN codes can be
