"AuthenTec's total solution is well suited for the leading OEMs and ODMs in China. I also look forward to expanding a strong software development and support infrastructure that will benefit not only customers in the region, but PC and wireless customers around the world."

The company's design center in Shanghai serves as a base of operations for AuthenTec China's software development, sales and technical support teams. The company recently added three new players to its 28-member China team, including two senior field applications engineers and a sales account manager. AuthenTec plans to further expand its Shanghai operations through the addition of several software development engineers in the next few months.
