Fujitsu Palm Secure Delivers Ultimate Protection for Tablet PC Data

While attending the Pepcom press event in NYC, we checked out the exciting new security product from Fujitsu…

The new Palm Secure to be officially announced next month has already made its debut on network television as a featured high-tech gadget on CSI New York. In getting a “hands on” demo (no pun intended) of the device, we could clearly see that the future of biometric data security will never be the same.

Rather than scanning the fingerprint of an authorized user, the Palm Secure actually scans the pattern of veins running through the palm of the hand. To make things even more complicated (and more secure), the device also looks at the blood flowing through the veins. So if you are concerned that someone might decide to severe your hand and use it to access your MP3 collection or top secret government documents, fear not.

How it Works

In order to “scan” your palm, you simply place your hand above the Palm Secure and hold it steady. If you move your hand, the software will prompt you to keep your hand steady. Within a few seconds, the software displays an image that looks oddly like an actual x-ray.

Unfortunately the “x-ray-like” image did not appear in our photo. However you can see the area where the image comes up briefly. You may observe from the main screen that the software interface is very simple to operate, perhaps even easier than some traditional biometric finger software interfaces.

The Palm Secure scanning offers a much more secure method of protectin than any other device to date. Fujitsu stated the accuracy of a false rejection rate is 0.01% and a false acceptance rate of less than 0.00008 %. This is significanly higher than current biometric finger scanners which have a false rejection rate of 5% or more. Read more on this hot technology here…
