Finger Vein Solution (Biometrics)

Hitachi offers biometric technology solutions to protect critical government systems and access. Innovative, advanced technologies are needed to strengthen security and finger vein solutions provide highly accurate, secure, efficient authentication speed.

The finger vein authentication technology uses a finger vein pattern, unique to each individual, for verification and identification. The finger vein pattern is obtained by projecting near-infrared rays generated from LEDs of a finger vein reader through the individual’s finger. Finger vein patterns are extremely difficult to steal and duplicate, making it an ideal identity verification solution.

  • Information Security Solutions: identity verification and authorization for access or transactions
  • Deployed Globally: more than 100,000 finger vein devices used by financial institutions in Japan, Poland and Turkey
