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
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."
The PalmSecure PC Log-In Kit will be available through Fujitsu's
channel partners in June 2008.
