Acclaim Consulting Group, Inc. a leading provider of Identity Management, Identity Governance, Access Control and API Management solutions, is pleased announced the integration of the latest Fujitsu PalmSecure biometric identification technology with Netegrity SiteMinder’s Single Sign-On (SSO), enabling end users to access enterprise applications with a secure and hacker proof palm scan instead of creating, managing, remembering and inputting different passwords for each account. Users simply wave their palm over a biometric reader to be authenticated once to the Siteminder application based on their unique palm vein pattern.
Deploying PalmSecure technology in conjunction with Siteminder SSO helps restrict access to corporate information assets to authorized users, prevent data compromises related to password theft, eliminate user frustration and lost productivity associated with password usage, and facilitate compliance with regulatory mandates such as HIPAA, SOX and PCI DSS.
“There’s no doubt passwords are an increasingly feeble way to secure our digital lives, but the challenge has been integrating authentication and access control, while still making the user experience easy and effortless, “ stated Peter Orondo, CTO and Founder of Acclaim Consulting. “Users are tired of having to keep up with smart cards, key fobs and even mobile devices, as the client are also asking us for advice on integrated physical and logical security, which led us to develop an integrated solution between industry leading platforms.”
The Fujitsu award-winning PalmSecure technology is a palm vein-based strong authentication solution that uses near-infrared light to capture a person’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against pre-registered user palm vein patterns. The small palm vein device can recognize the pattern only if the blood is actively flowing within the individual’s veins, making forgery virtually impossible.
