EAST LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State University FCU said yesterday it has deployed DigitalPersona Pro software and U.are.U Fingerprint Readers.  

The fingerprint readers eliminate the need for employees to remember and manually type separate strong passwords to more than 60 applications.  DigitalPersona Pro uses fingerprint biometrics to verify the user's identity, and then securely and automatically enters the appropriate password needed for each application.

The credit union’s security policies require the use of strong passwords that contain three or more types of characters, such as lower or upper case letters, numbers or symbols, making password memorization a major challenge.  The $1.8 billion credit union sought a solution that could simplify application login to improve customer service and overall productivity while improving the protection of confidential data.

DigitalPersona is based in Redwood City, Calif.
