Fujitsu launches World’s First PC Mouse Equipped with Palm Vein Biometric Authentication Sensor
Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Frontech Limited today announced that they have developed a PC Login Kit for use with the PalmSecure palm vein biometric authentication device and begun sales of a mouse model and a standard model for corporate users. Fujitsu PalmSecure PC Login Kit comes standard with login-authentication software, enabling client-side authentication and eliminating the need to use an authentication server, which had been required up until now. In addition, other improvements have been incorporated, such as faster authentication speeds without a palm guide and greater tolerance for the distance and angle of the hand when it passes over the device. With the new PalmSecure PC Login Kit, logins to PCs or applications that up until now required IDs and passwords can now be done using the highly secure palm vein biometric authentication method.
The mouse model, which is the world’s first PC mouse equipped with a palm vein biometric authentication sensor, can easily replace an existing PC mouse, offering convenience and space-saving advantages. The companies have also added a compact and portable standard model to their line of PC login kits. Both the Fujitsu mouse and standard models are available in black, white and gray to coordinate with different offices and computers.
