  • Tempstaff Introduces Compaq's Fingerprint ID System
  • August 20, 1998 (TOKYO) -- Tempstaff Co., Ltd., a leading Japanese human resources agency, installed a fingerprint identification system from Compaq Computer KK.
    With the system installed this month, the company intends to enhance the security performance of "TES", the company's mission critical system to control personal information of those who have registered with it.

    The fingerprint identification system comprises a PC-connected reading device for fingerprint information and software to identify fingerprint data pattern. Tempstaff is the first user of the system in Japan.

    Tempstaff will use this system to prevent the personal information of the registered staff from being released or accessed illegally. For the time being, the company will apply the system to its systems staff who are authorized to access the master data.

    In January this year, the company encountered with a case where personal information about a staff of 90,000 was leaked. The system installed this time will play an important role in the countermeasures for such cases.
