smplsolutions® to Expand Its Security Product Suite by Offering the Fujitsu PalmEntry Physical Access Control Solution to the Communications Industry

Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions announced that smplsolutions, the one-stop shop for all of your business communication needs, has signed an agreement to become an authorized distributor of the PalmEntry™ Physical Access Control solution. smplsolutions will work with their partners to integrate Fujitsu’s PalmSecure® technology into existing and new customers to provide a more reliable, hygienic and secure authentication technology that is easier to use and maintain. Fujitsu’s PalmEntry system is a secure, contactless, biometric access control solution that positively authenticates the identity of an individual.

The fully integrated solution will combine Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric authentication technology and smplsolutions’ excellence as a provider of business communications technology featuring The Tech Team™. The Tech Team, a group of professionals with multiple technical certifications, is accountable, dedicated and committed to deliver value and take businesses to the next level. They provide more than just technology solutions to their customers, they provide peace of mind.

“Fujitsu’s PalmSecure technology has proven to be a very reliable and robust technology. We feel very confident recommending it to our customers in the highly-demanding communications industry,” according to David Case, President and CEO, smplsolutions. “The robust software, Ultra Manager Enterprise (UME) is easy to use and provides all the functionality end users are looking for in access management system. As a result, we believe the market will embrace this solution.”

The PalmEntry Access Control solution relies on Fujitsu’s award-winning PalmSecure biometric technology integrated into a fully deployable access control system. 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. Unlike other readers, the PalmSecure sensor 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 the PalmEntry system takes less than one minute and authentication takes less than one second.

“We are delighted that smplsolutions has decided to broaden their strategic relationship with Fujitsu to include the PalmEntry system with their customers,” according to Randy Fox, vice president, currency handling and identification product solutions, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “There are other forms of biometric authentication solutions on the market, but PalmSecure biometric technology has already shown true flexibility in a number of markets. Fujitsu’s integrated PalmEntry system will truly provide smplsolutions added value to their partners and customers who desire highly reliable authentication, access control and privacy.”

Fujitsu’s family of biometric solutions, PalmSecure® sensors, PalmSecure for SSO (single sign-on) and the PalmEntry™ Physical Access Control system all utilize the 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.
