Palm vein biometrics is an authentic contactless technology that uses vascular patterns as personal identification data. The palm vein technology is secure as the data is retrieved from the body and is therefore difficult to forge. The working principle of the palm vein biometric is based on comparing and authenticating the stored vein pattern in the database with the vein pattern present in the palm of a person. The emerging trend of advance security is creating high demand of palm vein biometric in the recent times. In February 2016, Fujitsu Company launched a 2-in-1 device that consists of palm vein biometric called STYLISTIC Q736. It is one of the fastest, and accurate security solution available in the market.
Additionally, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, one of the leading bank in Japan uses Fujitsu’s palm vein biometric system to provide a cost effective and secure solution.
