Fujitsu extends biometrics-as-a-service platform to Australia

By

Japanese ICT firm Fujitsu has extended the availability of its global biometrics-as-a-service platform to Australia. The service is provided in collaboration with ImageWare Systems, a provider of mobile and cloud-based identity management software.

The service is claimed to allow the deployment of authentication using voice, facial recognition and fingerprints on smartphones at a low cost and reduced risk.

Fujitsu's offering is a multimodal systems which is said to be best suited to applications where high accuracy and security is required because they need two biometric credentials for positive identification instead of one in a unimodal system.

A multimodal biometric also gives the user a choice of their preferred biometric for their convenience.

“For Australian enterprises, protecting data and implementing access control is more important than ever," said Mike Foster, chief executive, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand.

"Through this agreement with ImageWare Systems, our customers gain access to an enhanced portfolio of biometric security solutions that reduce the barriers to deploying highly secure biometric authentication.

"Delivering biometric authentication as a service opens up many new use cases and reduces the complexity usually associated with security measures,”

Jim Miller, chairman and chief executive of ImageWare Systems, added: “Biometrics are not only the most secure form of authentication, but are also the easiest to use as each user is his or her own password.

"By taking advantage of our powerful biometrics solutions delivered via Fujitsu’s cloud-based security as a service, many more businesses can easily enhance their security.

This agreement further extends our marketing and sales activities with Fujitsu to new regions en route to a truly global offering. Fujitsu’s global capability extends the reach of ImageWare’s patented, multimodal biometric technology as a core element of Fujitsu’s cyber security portfolio across the globe."
