Fujitsu Frontech North America has announced that Fiserv, a provider of financial services technology solutions, has signed an agreement that will allow it to integrate Fujitsu's PalmSecure biometric technology into its DNA account processing platform.The Fiserv integration will initially facilitate the authentication of accountholders in the branch to provide positive identity verification for activities such as withdrawing funds or accessing a safety deposit box.”The security and integrity of customer financial transactions are paramount for our bank and credit union clients,” said Steve Cameron, Group President, Open Solutions Division, Fiserv. “Integrating Fujitsu's PalmSecure biometrics technology with the DNA account processing platform gives our clients an innovative choice for accountholder verification that can reduce risk and advance their branch-of-the-future strategies.”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. The device 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. Registration for PalmSecure technology users takes less than one minute and authentication takes less than one second, Fujitsu claims.
