VASCO, already a well-established company around the world, is aiming its strong Digipass authentication and digital signature solutions at UK businesses and organisations including corporates, educational establishments, financial institutions, banks, the supply chain, users of ecommerce, and government-type organisations. Passwords on post-its are past it Instead of relying on expensive, management-intensive, insecure passwords, VASCO users can now access networks with more secure Digipass authentication tokens, both on a small scale or with thousands of users. This has major benefits for many organisation including corporates, universities, financial organisations, the NHS, etc. Secure online identification VASCO digital signature technology provides secure online identification for applications where it is critical to identify accurately who is dialling in because they may, for example, be ordering expensive items, be dealing with very sensitive information, or be carrying out financial transactions. VASCO users get something they have and something they know. They have the VASCO Digipass token, and they know their VASCO PIN number. Together with the use of one time passwords, this creates a uniquely secure combination. This solution has many applications such as Internet banking, supply chain, ecommerce, and secure ordering in areas such as the automotive industry. With a market leading position in banking, key features of VASCO tokens are extreme robustness and an exceptionally long battery life - features which are also very useful in many other market areas. VASCOs Digipass products also add value to firewall and VPN solutions such as WatchGuard, Checkpoint, Fortinet, and NetScreen, etc. by solving the important security risk of a lack of strong user authentication.
