Many sorts of protection systems exits, but biometric authentication is steadily gaining ground, something that Fujitsu seems to be well aware of, considering its plans for ISC West 2011.
Fujitsu is, like so many others, accustomed to dealing in a wide variety of products, and it looks like its most recent efforts are in the area of security.
For those that do not know, between April 6 and April 8, the International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC West) event will take place at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.
There, at The Fujitsu Frontech North America booth number 4045, the company will demonstrate its most recent advancements in the field of vein-based biometric authentication.
The solution is dubbed Fujitsu PalmEntry access control system and utilizes the PalmSecure vascular pattern technology “to deliver secure physical and logical access control.”
This sort of authentication system does not even require contact, meaning that hand lotions or chemicals, plus abrasions and skin conditions, are inconsequential.
This is made possible by the employment of a near-infrared light that captures the vein patterns and generates the biometric template before matching it to those of pre-registered users.
Even more importantly, forgery is said to be impossible, since the PalmSecure will not grant access unless the blood is actively flowing.
“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,” says the press release.
At the event, the company will demonstrate the PalmEntry Physical Access Control solution and also provide an overview of the marquis customer installation.
Vertical industries, like healthcare, financial services, government, retail and education, are the main target markets.
