Banco Bradesco trials Fujitsu palm vein authentication technology

13 July 2006  |  9607 views  |  0 biometric hand

Brazil's Banco Bradesco, the largest private bank in Latin America, is to begin using Fujitsu's PalmSecure biometric authentication application to verify customers using its ATMs.

The PalmSecure application features a sensor that captures the palm vein pattern of the user and compares it with pre-registered data to authenticate the customer's identity.

Fujitsu says the sensor is compact and can be safely used in a wide range of applications, such as in PCs, ATMs and for building and room access.

The bank is currently testing the application internally, with general roll out scheduled to start soon.

The vendor says after researching various biometric technologies Bradesco chose PalmSecure for its high levels of verification accuracy and for being non-invasive and hygienic, making it easier to be accepted by customers.
