Pearson VUE Enhances Test Taker Identity Authentication With Fujitsu And Sensometrix Solution

Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions, and Sensometrix, an innovative and turnkey biometric authentication solutions provider, today announced an award of services by Pearson VUE, the leading testing administration and services provider that delivers millions of high-stakes tests a year across the globe for clients in the licensure, certification, academic admissions, regulatory, and government testing service markets.

Pearson VUE pioneered using biometric identification for test taker authentication over ten years ago, and in recent years deployed Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric identification technology to over 500 Pearson VUE test facilities worldwide. Test takers are able to quickly, conveniently and accurately establish their identity by simply placing a palm over the Fujitsu PalmSecure™ reader before proceeding with any scheduled tests. Under the new multi-year agreement, Pearson VUE introduced one-to-many (1:N) matching to provide an enhanced layer of fraud prevention, utilizing the SensoBrain distributed biometric acceleration technology. The Sensometrix technology rapidly compares each test taker’s biometrics to those of everyone else in a client’s testing program, ensuring that any potential fraudulent testing based on impersonation can be proactively eliminated before it occurs.

“We have been very pleased with the success of Fujitsu’s PalmSecure solution in accurately identifying test takers, and are equally delighted to be adopting the Sensometrix SensoBrain technology to enhance and accelerate our identity authentication capabilities,” said Robert Whelan, President of Pearson VUE. “The combination of the PalmSecure biometric identity solution with the SensoBrain accelerator surpasses other biometric solutions in speed, value, accuracy and protection of individual privacy. It also has exceeded our criteria for being quickly and efficiently introduced into our testing administration workflow. We look forward to working with Fujitsu and Sensometrix to further enhance the integrity of our testing services.”

“Palm Vein scanning is an integral part of our continuing efforts to provide the highest level of security, fairness — and privacy protection — in the administration of the GMAT exam,” said David A. Wilson, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Graduate Management Admission Council. “In both Fujitsu and Pearson VUE we have found more than just companies committed to advancing technology or uncovering new solutions, we’ve found partners as committed as we are to making sure both students and schools can have full confidence in the integrity of the GMAT testing process.”
