Japanese tech firm Fujitsu has launched a biometric login device aimed at client computing services.In a statement, the firm said its new generation of FUTRO Thin Client devices, includes the Fujitsu Thin Client FUTRO Q940 PalmSecure Appliance, the first to integrate Fujitsu's palm vein biometric security technology. Ruediger Landto, Head of Category Management for Client Computing Devices at Fujitsu EMEIA, says: “Thin clients are excellent for computing environments where there is a high degree of centralisation, such as government, banking, insurance, and call centers. The all-new FUTRO range is both smaller and more powerful than ever, and delivers significant advances in terms of security and multimedia capabilities. In terms of performance, most users will never even notice they're not using a fully-featured PC.”The FUTRO Q940 is the first Fujitsu thin client with integrated PalmSecure technology, which detects palm vein patterns.To authenticate with PalmSecure, registered users simply hover their hand over the contactless sensor. As well as use in Single Sign-On (SSO) environments, PalmSecure can provide additional user verification for sensitive data or enterprise applications.
