Fujitsu Announces PalmSecure(TM) PC Log-In Kit for North America Enhanced Authentication Algorithm and Strong Password Management Solution

Brings Robust and Convenient Biometric Security to the Small and Mid-Size

Business Market at RSA 2008



    SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu Computer
 Products of America, Inc., a leading supplier of innovative computer
 products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric security
 solutions, today announced its PalmSecure(TM) PC Log-In Kit for general
 availability in North America. The company will demonstrate the biometric
 authentication solution at the 2008 RSA Conference, April 7-11, at the
 Moscone Center, San Francisco. The PC Log-In Kit is composed of the
 award-winning PalmSecure authentication sensor embedded in a PC mouse, and
 OmniPass(TM) Windows Log-in and Single Sign-On software that eliminates
 having to remember tedious passwords for entry into Windows sessions and
 password-protected applications.
 
     PalmSecure generates a unique biometric template that is matched
 against pre-registered users' palm vein patterns. It is more reliable and
 easier to use than alternative biometric devices, enabling access to PCs
 and sensitive data records to become more secure, accurate and efficiently
 accessed. The PalmSecure PC Log-In Kit contains the latest generation
 authentication algorithm that provides faster authentication speeds with a
 user guidance software, and greater tolerance for the distance and angle of
 the hand when it is placed over the device. With a high level of
 authentication accuracy, competitive price point and powerful log-in
 management software, the PalmSecure PC Log-In Kit is an ideal solution for
 small and mid-size businesses' identity management needs.
 
     "We conducted an extensive search of the biometric solutions available
 today looking for a non-intrusive, reliable and accurate product," said
 Grady Johnston, CEO, Tiburon. "Fujitsu's PalmSecure technology allows us to
 introduce an entirely new option to our customers seeking the latest in
 identity protection and security management."
 
     "For small and mid-size businesses struggling with security procedures
 and challenging compliance issues, the need for a biometric device
 conducive to their work environment is vital," said Joel Hagberg, vice
 president, marketing and business development, Fujitsu Computer Products of
 America, Inc. "With the PalmSecure PC Log-In Kit, applications which
 require IDs and passwords, or log-ins to PCs, can now be done more
 efficiently and securely using palm vein biometric authentication."
 
     Product Availability
 
     The PalmSecure PC Log-In Kit will be available through Fujitsu's
 channel partners in June 2008.
