Palm vein identification is an unobtrusive and highly accurate technology, and the International Biometrics Group (IBG), which evaluates biometric products through comparative testing, found that palm vein technology competes well with iris scanning technology in accuracy, and demonstrated extremely low occurrences of both false positive and false negative readings. It utilizes no trace technology which leaves virtually no biometric footprint behind and therefore it is difficult to spoof, especially when compared with cheaper fingerprinting devices.
"A typical organization spends hundreds of dollars per employee per year on lost passwords through help desk support," said E.K. Koh, program director for single sign-on, IBM Tivoli software. "IBM's work with Fujitsu replaces archaic password structures with a single path of access that resides in the palms of the employees' hands, and can be managed more efficiently, saving companies thousands of dollars in IT support while protecting critical organizational data and information."
IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On allows a user to log in once to gain access to various systems or applications to do their jobs without being prompted to log in again at each of them. The combined solution from IBM and Fujitsu now uses palm vein technology in place of a user needing to even type a password once.
