6e5af2cdb90fc6ac445c0c1ff8d129cc_w335Global technology business Fujitsu unveiled a new biometrically-operated authentication device earlier this week which identifies people by their individual palm vein structure. Revealing the PalmSecure ID Match at its annual Fujitsu Forum event in Munich, Germany, the Japan-based vendor said the new technology will have multiple uses for businesses and consumers alike, protecting access, data and, ultimately, payments.
