Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Frontech Limited today announced the introduction of a portable sensor capable of directly connecting to USB ports. The new sensor, to be added to the FUJITSU Biometric Authentication PalmSecure-SL Sensor line of contactless palm vein authentication devices for enterprises, will be available for sale only in Japan, from late September.

The new sensor’s ability to directly connect to USB ports eliminates the need for bothersome USB cables with mobile applications, and also makes it more convenient to use with tablets when out of the office or in the field.



Work styles are becoming increasingly diverse as a result of the spread of smart devices in recent years. At the same time, however, the use of smart devices for work has brought its own set of issues. For example, it is easy for bystanders to peep at tablet screens, resulting in the risk of passwords getting stolen while logging in. As a result, there have been increasing needs for smart device security measures that enable easy operation even when users are standing or are at locations without desks.

To meet these needs, Fujitsu and Fujitsu Frontech will offer a portable sensor that plugs directly into USB ports, adding it to the existing line of PalmSecure-SL Sensor compact PC login sensors. This brings both convenience and security to the new work styles that smart devices make possible.
