WORLDWIDE COMPUTER PRODUCTS NEWS-June 16, 2017-Nok Nok Labs signs formal biometric authentication partnership with Fujitsu in Japan


Nok Nok Labs reported on Thursday the launch of a formal biometric authentication partnership to accelerate the FIDO Authentication in Japan through Fujitsu.

Fujitsu will now be leveraging the Nok Nok solution as a part of its Online Biometric Authentication Service, which provides companies that offer online services to their end users with the necessary software and servers to implement FIDO-backed strong authentication.

Under this partnership, Fujitsu will use Nok Nok Lab's NNL S3 Authentication Suite technology to enable successful deployments of large scale unified authentication solutions that will enable financial customers in Japan to undergo digital transformations as well as increase their competitive advantage,

As part of the agreement, Fujitsu will act as a global value-added reseller (VAR) leveraging the NNL S3 Authentication Suite to deliver end-to-end FIDO authentication to the Japanese market and worldwide to its global customer base.

Fujitsu customers can leverage the NNL S3 Suite to easily build online personal authentication systems with robust security, eliminating passwords for a variety of day-to-day situations. The online biometric authentication service functions to use FIDO specifications with facial recognition obtained through camera-equipped smartphones and other biometrics because the number of supported devices on the client side can be dramatically expanded.

In addition, Nok Nok Labs plans to expand the partnership globally to additional Fujitsu customers in the EMEA, North America, New Zealand and Australia.
