LAS VEGAS –Amazon Web Services (AWS) has introduced Amazon One Enterprise, a palm-based identity service that improves organizational security and helps prevent security breaches.

This latest service from AWS enables organizations to provide a fast, convenient, and contactless experience for employees and other authorized users to gain access to physical locations, and digital assets such as restricted software resources. AWS wrote that Amazon One Enterprise eliminates operational overhead associated with the management of traditional enterprise authentication methods, like badges and PINs.

“Today, organizations authenticate employees and other authorized individuals to access buildings and software resources through physical means like badges and fobs, or digital methods like PINs and passwords,” AWS stated in a release. “However, these traditional methods share common security vulnerabilities. Badges and fobs can be lost, shared, cloned, or stolen, while PINs and passwords are easily forgotten, guessable, or shared. Many traditional forms of authentication also require manual verification and time-intensive credential management, along with the cost of producing physical IDs. For employees, forgetting or replacing badges, PINs, and passwords can lead to frustration, wasted time, and lower productivity.”

Instead, Amazon One Enterprise provides enterprise access control through an easy-to-use biometric identification device. Security is built into every stage of the service, from multi-layered security controls in the Amazon One device to protection of data in transit and in the cloud. Amazon One Enterprise combines palm and vein imagery for biometric matching and delivers an accuracy rate of 99.9999%, which exceeds the accuracy of other biometric alternatives, even more accurate than scanning two irises according to AWS.

The new service’s palm-recognition technology uses advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning to create a palm signature that is associated with identification credentials like a badge, employee ID, or PIN. The palm signature is a unique numerical vector created from the user’s palm image that cannot be replicated or used for impersonation.

“Our mission at Boon Edam is to protect what matters most to our customers by creating an ideal secured entry solution,” said Patrick Nora, president, Boon Edam Americas. “With Amazon One Enterprise, we can offer authorized entrances using innovative palm biometric technology that raises our security bar and delivers a convenient workplace experience. Our customers can prevent unauthorized entry, reduce the time spent monitoring access, and keep traffic moving smoothly.”

Amazon One Enterprise is available in preview in the U.S. For more information, please visit
