Amazon is expanding its Amazon One palm recognition technology to corporate customers, allowing their employees to use their palms instead of traditional badges, passwords, or other ways of accessing buildings and computer systems.

Under the new Amazon One Enterprise service, companies will be able to install Amazon One scanners at their locations, and use the Amazon Web Services Management Console to manage users, devices and software updates.

Amazon originally rolled out the Amazon One technolology for its own retail stores in September 2020, before expanding it to third-party retailers and venues.

The company announced Amazon One Enterprise on Monday night in conjunction with its re:Invent conference in Las Vegas. Amazon did not disclose pricing for the hardware or related AWS service, which are now available as a preview in the U.S.

In addition to external customers, initial users include AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure, which oversees the company’s data centers and plans to roll out the technology to all of its locations, according to a news release. It’s not clear if Amazon plans to implement the palm-recognition technology at its own corporate offices.

The company published a set of FAQs for customers and end users.
