Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions, announced today that AUTEC GmbH, a global leader in OEM hardware and software solutions for the physical security market, will become a value-added integrator for components of Fujitsu’s PalmEntry™ physical access control management systems. AUTEC GmbH OEM security solutions include physical access control, video surveillance, time and attendance and building automation systems that are scalable from entry level up to enterprise level solutions.
AUTEC GmbH will be demonstrating an International airport employee gate access solution based on PalmSecure® biometric technology, called XMP-PalmCom, in the Fujitsu booth #7054 at ISC West 2014. This highly secure physical access solution uses dual authentication and 256-bit encryption to provide a robust “spoof-proof” solution for enhanced airline security. In addition, AUTEC GmbH’s North American reseller, iDor Security Solutions, will be demonstrating XMP-PalmCom in their booth #13127.
“From the very beginning we were impressed with the reliability and durability of the PalmEntry hardware compared to other biometric solutions on the market,” according to Roger Poller, CEO, AUTEC GmbH. “We were confident we could install PalmEntry hardware in some of the most challenging locations and environments in the world, and it would perform at a very high level for years to come.”
A major differentiator of the AUTEC solution is the use of the Fujitsu biometric sensor for authentication. The Fujitsu 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. Unlike other readers, the PalmSecure device does not come into contact with the hand, making it extremely hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin types and conditions. AUTEC GmbH’s XMP-PalmCom system utilizes Fujitsu’s SDK library, PalmSecure sensor and controller. The XMP-PalmCom uses the highest level of encryption standards like AES and Blowfish 256-bit encryption between the access controller and palm controller to ensure the security of the user’s biometric information. To enhance the acceptance of their solutions on a global basis, AUTEC GmbH has received ISO 9001, RoHS, CE and UL certifications.
“We are delighted that AUTEC GmbH has chosen Fujitsu Access Control Technology to complement their array of world-class security solutions,” said Randy Fox, vice president, currency handling and identification product solutions, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “Armed with Fujitsu’s access control components, AUTEC GmbH will now be able to provide a winning value-added solution to their security integration clients and OEM channel.”
Fujitsu’s family of biometric solutions, PalmSecure® sensor, PalmSecure for SSO (single sign-on) and the PalmEntry™ Physical Access Control system, all utilize PalmSecure award-winning technology. The palm vein device can only recognize the pattern if the blood is actively flowing within the individual’s veins, so forgery is virtually impossible. This advanced, vascular pattern recognition technology not only provides highly reliable authentication with low false accept and reject rates, but also allows for fast and easy enrollment.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
