Fujitsu PalmSecure Certified Under International Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 2
Date:7/14/2009

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a leading supplier of innovative computer products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric security solutions, today announced that the Fujitsu PalmSecure vascular biometric authentication technology has been certified under the International Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation as Evaluation Assurance Level 2. PalmSecure is the first vascular authentication solution to receive this certification, validating PalmSecure as a superior form of biometric identification and security.

Common Criteria is a set of established guidelines for evaluating and certifying the information security of IT products and information systems. It is currently recognized in 26 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, Germany, France and Spain. Achieving Evaluation Assurance Level 2 provides Fujitsu with a key security and competitive advantage in sales and business development efforts to federal agencies as well as to commercial enterprises seeking security products that comply with high level industry and international standards.

"PalmSecure is currently being used in a wide variety of applications, protecting against unauthorized access to sensitive data at government agencies, healthcare companies, educational institutions, financial services firms and other organizations," said Jim Preasmyer, director of sales and business development, Advanced Technology Group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "Achieving Evaluation Assurance Level 2 certification under Common Criteria solidifies PalmSecure's position as one of the industry's most secure biometric identification solutions."

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. This advanced, vascular pattern recognition technology provides a highly reliable type of authentication -- PalmSecure's false acceptance ratio is just 0.00008 percent -- in a form factor that is non-intrusive, easy to use and generates extremely fast comparisons. The Common Criteria certification applies to the Fujitsu PalmSecure Software Developer Kit (SDK).

SDK enables developers to enhance the security of their software applications and IT systems by supplying all the necessary equipment and resources for integrating PalmSecure. The Common Criteria certification provides developers with a higher level of assurance that they are implementing the most secure, robust biometric available today. It also significantly reduces the time and costs associated with having their own systems assessed for Common Criteria certification by demonstrating to evaluators that the developers are building their systems using components that are certified under Common Criteria -- a distinct competitive advantage for any solutions provider selling its products to a government agency.
