Fujitsu to Demonstrate PalmSecure Biometric Authentication at AFCEA Homeland Security 2006

Fujitsu Network Communications Inc., a supplier of IT and wireline/wireless networking solutions, and Fujitsu Computer Products of America, a supplier of innovative computer products, today announced that the PalmSecure biometric palm vein authentication device will be demonstrated, and government solutions discussed, at the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) Homeland Security 2006 conference in Washington, D.C. Fujitsu will also discuss mission-critical networking, disaster recovery, and business continuity solutions for homeland defense. For more information about the conference, please visit

The PalmSecure palm vein authentication device is a highly secure and innovative alternative to other biometric measures. Without physical contact, the integrated optical system in the PalmSecure vein authentication device generates an image of the palm vein pattern, digitizes the image, and encrypts and stores the unique pattern as a registered template. In addition to the PalmSecure vein authentication device, Fujitsu offers federal and state agencies the same carrier-proven equipment and services that wireline and wireless carriers depend on for their critical optical networking and end-to-end service delivery requirements. Fujitsu is among a select group of companies in the U.S. to receive Tier 3 Custom-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certification from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency. Fujitsu FLASHWAVE optical networking solutions, NETSMART management platforms and Network Life Cycle Services are available through GSA Schedule 70, FTS2001, WITS2001 and GSA CONNECTIONS.
