Award-Winning Palm Vein Authentication Technology Integrates with Citrix Password Manager Single-Sign On Solution to Enhance Security and Compliance
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 22 /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 its PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR has been verified as Citrix Ready(TM). The PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR is a new identity management solution that combines the Fujitsu PalmSecure biometric authentication technology embedded into a PC mouse with software that seamlessly integrates with many third-party vendors' single sign-on (SSO) solutions. The Fujitsu PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR has been verified as compatible with Citrix Password Manager, providing organizations with a robust, cost-effective user authentication solution to enhance security and facilitate compliance with HIPAA, SOX, PCI DSS and other regulations.
"By integrating PalmSecure with Citrix Password Manager, PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR addresses the security issues associated with relying solely on passwords for access to proprietary systems and information," said Joel Hagberg, vice president, marketing and business development, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "The fact that Fujitsu PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR completed the Citrix Ready compatibility testing demonstrates our commitment to providing validated biometric security 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. With PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR, users are no longer required to remember passwords, eliminating the threats posed by lost or stolen passwords, as well as the considerable cost of creating and re-assigning new log-in credentials. The PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR is also equipped with Hot Desktop functionality, ideal for IT environments in which many users need to access a single computer by requiring users to authenticate themselves separately. Individual activity is tracked, promoting security and compliance best practices by limiting users' access to only those applications and files for which they are pre-approved.
"The combination of PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR and the Citrix Password Manager provides both small businesses and large-scale enterprises with an easy-to-use, low-maintenance solution for reducing overall IT costs while improving security and compliance efforts," said John Bryan, director, business development, Citrix Systems, Inc. "The PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR enhances Citrix's application solutions by providing complete integration with built-in Password Management and Single Sign On technologies."
The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that add the greatest value in Citrix Application Delivery Infrastructure solutions, making it easier for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that can enhance Citrix environments. Customers can be confident that the Fujitsu PalmSecure LOGONDIRECTOR has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix and can be trusted to work effectively with the Citrix Password Manager SSO software.
