MEDIA ALERT:Fujitsu Showcasing PalmEntry Physical Access Control Solution and Vantage Data Center Deployment at ISC West 2011

Fujitsu Frontech Limited,Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc.

Foothill Ranch, CA and Las Vegas, NV, April 04, 2011

The International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC West)—Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leading provider of IT-based business solutions, including advanced technology products, biometric security, and digital media solutions, will showcase its PalmEntry™ Physical Access Control solution in booth #4045 at the 2011 International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC West). The largest event in the U.S. for the physical security industry, ISC West takes place April 6-8, 2011 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.

WHAT: Fujitsu will provide demos of the PalmEntry Physical Access Control solution and overview of a marquis customer installation at Vantage Data Centers’ Santa Clara campus in its booth.

A robust, palm vein-based biometric authentication solution, the Fujitsu PalmEntry access control system utilizes industry-leading PalmSecure™ vascular pattern technology to deliver secure physical and logical access control to customers across vertical industries, including healthcare, financial services, government, retail and education. The PalmSecure sensor uses near-infrared light to capture a person’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against templates of pre-registered users. Unlike other biometric modalities, PalmSecure authentication is contactless, meaning it is unaffected by the presence of hand lotions, chemicals, abrasions, skin conditions or the effects of cold environments. Further, the technology can only recognize palm vein patterns if blood is actively flowing, making forgery virtually impossible. The result is a highly reliable, non-intrusive and easy-to-use biometric authentication solution that can be easily integrated to existing access control infrastructures, making it the physical access control solution of choice for even the most demanding organizations.

Earlier this year, Vantage Data Centers, which provides energy-efficient, scalable data center solutions to enterprise customers, deployed the PalmEntry solution in the first completed data center on its state-of-the-art, 18-acre campus in Santa Clara, Calif. to protect extremely sensitive proprietary data and costly infrastructure, as well as ensure that only privileged personnel are able to access secure areas. With the PalmEntry system—which offers up to three factors of authentication—Vantage is able to require biometric authentication for all ingress points and layer additional factors of authentication as needed, specifically in mission-critical areas. Application of the comprehensive, multi-factor Fujitsu solution allows Vantage to meet customer security demands and support various compliance regulations. An invitation-only media tour of the state-of-art data center and biometric security solution will be held during the “Smart Data Center Revolution Earth Day Event,” taking place April 22, 2011 at the Vantage Data Centers campus in Santa Clara, Calif.

WHO: Christer Bergman, vice president of the biometric solution group at Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. and expert in the field of biometrics, will be available to provide a comprehensive overview of the PalmEntry Physical Access Control technology and discuss how the company’s solutions are meeting a wide range of physical access control, identity management and authentication needs across industries.

In addition, Brian Yoshii from Vantage Data Centers will be available in the Fujitsu booth to talk about the company’s deployment of the PalmEntry technology at its Santa Clara campus and the results experienced to date. Yoshii can also discuss how Vantage reviewed many of the prevailing biometric technologies implemented in the data center industry, including fingerprint readers and retinal scanners, before deciding that the Fujitsu PalmEntry technology was the right choice for this innovative facility.

WHERE: The Fujitsu Frontech North America booth, #4045, at ISC West.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 6, 2011 through Friday, April 8, 2011
