Frontech North America Inc. a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions announced today the introduction of the PalmEntryXS™ access control solution. The PalmEntryXS solution features a contemporary and ergonomically designed user interface, but still leverages the same market-proven Fujitsu PalmSecure® biometrics technology. The entire PalmEntry™product line will be on display at ISC West 2014 in the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, April 2-4, 2014 booth number 7054. Fujitsu’s PalmEntryXS solution will also be on display in the in the New Product Showcase located outside the exhibit hall.

“We have listened to customers and prospects and are delighted to be introducing this critical addition to our physical access control family. The design and user interface of the PalmEntryXS solution will make it a more compelling solution for many secure locations,” says Randy Fox, vice president, currency handling and identification product solutions, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “Although the design is new, customers will appreciate that it still uses the tried and true PalmSecure technology that Fujitsu has offered for years.”

The Fujitsu PalmSecure biometric palm vein sensors use a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users. Because blood needs to be flowing through the veins to create the vein pattern, there is an automatic ’liveness’ check which prevents spoofing. This also makes the PalmSecure solution the security market’s only subcutaneous biometric sensor making forgery virtually impossible. Unlike other biometric readers, the PalmSecure sensor 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. User registration takes less than one minute and authentication takes less than one second.

The PalmEntryXS solution includes a new, ergonomic wrist guide which facilitates correct placement of the user’s hand ensuring a timely and accurate scan of the palm. The user will benefit from the larger four-color LED display that intuitively assists them through the verification process. The contactless, hygienic authentication process replaces, or can be used in conjunction with other forms of ID such as RFID badges, tokens and PINS.

Fujitsu’s family of biometric solutions, the PalmSecure® sensor, PalmSecure for SSO (single sign-on) system and the PalmEntry™ Physical Access Control system all utilize the award-winning technology. The palm vein device can only recognize the pattern if the blood is actively flowing within the individual’s veins, so forgery is virtually impossible. This advanced, vascular pattern recognition technology not only provides highly reliable authentication with low false accept and reject rates, but also allows for fast and easy enrollment.
