VASCO Data Security launches DIGIPASS for Windows

(PresseBox) (Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, Zurich, Switzerland, ) VASCO Data Security Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; www.vasco.com ), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products, today announces the launch of DIGIPASS® for Windows. DIGIPASS for Windows has been designed for companies that have a need to add strong authentication to secure their networks and applications but without using hardwarebased devices or mobile phones as client authentication platforms.

DIGIPASS for Windows is ideally suited for securing remote access or online applications. Application providers, egaming platforms and SaaSvendors often want to increase the security of their applications without impacting the enduser. DIGIPASS for Windows can easily be deployed to vast numbers of endusers, especially in environments where the ease of implementation is the major requirement. DIGIPASS for Windows has a silent install option which allows pushing the customized authentication application to the enduser without having to ask the enduser to install the application.

The DIGIPASS for Windows application resides on the enduser's desktop and a onetime password (OTP) will be generated after PINcode insertion. For a digital signature, the PINcode will be requested, after which data fields will need to be entered. The esignature will be calculated using the data field entries. DIGIPASS for Windows also provides the possibility to open the protected web application directly from the DIGIPASS for Windows application. Once the OTP has been generated, the enduser can click next to immediately access the application.

The authentication interface of DIGIPASS for Windows can be fully customized. Menus, messages, corporate colors, logos, and fonts can be adapted to reflect the company's corporate image.

DIGIPASS for Windows is also available as an SDK for SaaSvendors. It allows them to natively integrate DIGIPASS behavior into virtually any Windows application, making the authentication process an integral part of the application.

DIGIPASS for Windows operates with VACMAN Controller, IDENTIKEY and aXsGUARD Identifier, the full range of VASCO serverside authentication platforms. It can be used in conjunction with any other device from the DIGIPASS family, enabling customers to deploy hardwarebased authenticators to certain user segments and DIGIPASS for Windows to other users for whom hardwarebased authentication is not a solution.

"VASCO is known for its wide range of authentication solutions which best fit the enduser's needs. By adding DIGIPASS for Windows to our product range, we come with a solution for environments where hardwarebased or mobile authentication solutions do not provide an answer to the authentication needs. DIGIPASS for Windows demonstrates that we have the right authentication solution for any given environment and enduser need," says Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security.
