Biometrics-as-a-Service™ platform offers scalable user authentication for organizations of any size Fujitsu America Inc. Sunnyvale, CA, September 14, 2017 – Fujitsu America, Inc. announces the launch of a cloud-based Biometrics-as-a-Service (BIOaaS™) offering which, in light of recent large-scale data breaches like the Equifax cybersecurity incident1, is a unique solution for organizations facing increasingly complex data security risks. This offering demonstrates Fujitsu’s leading edge capability to secure financial, commercial and customer environments through integration with our recently established Intelligent Security Operations Center (iSOC) in Dallas, providing real time security alerts in a seamless manner. With the launch of this cloud-based identity platform, Fujitsu is transforming the market by offering quick deployment that lowers costs and allows customers to choose and blend modalities to develop the best use case for their particular organization and requirements, permitting rapid integration with existing business intelligence and systems. Available biometric modalities can include voice, face and fingerprint on customer’s smartphones for low cost, low risk applications, right through to the award-winning Fujitsu PalmSecure® solution for high-security deployments.

BIOaaS is a massively scalable, globally available solution to quickly assist organizations with determining a “true” identity in the first instance via identification or verifying against a known identity. By leveraging a centralized architecture, the solution allows new biometric information to be checked against existing biometrics databases to reduce fraud, something that is not possible with match-on-device solutions like the type found in smartphones.
