The PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR addresses threats posed by shoulder surfing by requiring users to authenticate themselves using the palm vein scanner, rendering password information virtually useless for a would-be hacker. By enabling a SSO mechanism to gain entry into a Windows session and any password-protected applications, the LOGONDIRECTOR also eliminates the need for employees to remember passwords to access their PCs or laptops, saving the IT helpdesk a substantial amount of time and money. This is equally beneficial when deprovisioning accounts. When an employee leaves a company or is terminated, the IT department has just one credential to delete, thereby reducing the costs of deprovisioning old passwords and preventing the exiting employee from using these accounts to access proprietary systems and information for nefarious purposes.
"Our customers continually express the need for more robust methods of user authentication, and the Fujitsu PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR certainly fits the bill. It offers the benefits of highly accurate biometric identification with the cost-effectiveness and ease-of-use associated with SSO solutions, eradicating the numerous problems associated with passwords," said Grady Johnston, president, Tiburon Enterprises, LLC. "We are extremely pleased to be able to offer Fujitsu's solution as part of our security portfolio, as it will serve as an enhanced offering for our SMB and enterprise customers. This new offering will be of particular interest to our healthcare customers looking to secure computers that are accessed by multiple hospital staff members. The PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR ensures that each new user is only given access to pre-approved programs and data."
The Fujitsu PalmSecure sensor uses a near infrared light to capture a
person's palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is
matched against pre-registered users' palm vein patterns. LOGONDIRECTOR
