OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., and ZURICH, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) ( www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in strong authentication products and services, strengthens its MYDIGIPASS.COM platform by adding a launch pad and a marketplace. By adding these two features, MYDIGIPASS.COM becomes even more attractive to ASPs allowing them to increase their revenue, improve their security and add extra value to their website. To access the personal launch pad, a user only has to activate his/her profile on the MYDIGIPASS.COM portal ( www.mydigipass.com).
The launch pad is a central place where users can quickly access all their personal applications and internet websites. On the market place users can look for MYDIGIPASS.COM secured applications and bookmarks to the most popular websites, and add them to their personalized launch pad.
In April 2012, VASCO launched its MYDIGIPASS.COM platform. It is a hosted consumer authentication platform, providing convenient and secure login services to various web applications. ASPs can add strong two-factor authentication in a straightforward and cost-efficient manner while at the same time providing their end-users with secure access to secluded content and online accounts in a most convenient way. Adding extra features to the platform supports VASCO's goal to make MYDIGIPASS.COM omnipresent.
ASPs can offer their end-users a secure online platform with a very user-friendly interface that is also fit for mobile devices. The launch pad will give the end-user a clear overview of his/her applications secured by MYDIGIPASS.COM. All he will have to do, is go to VASCO's market place, look for his favorite online applications and add them to his own personal launch pad. In a later phase bookmarks will also be added.One of the great advantages for ASPs is that they no longer have to worry about password management. MYDIGIPASS.COM offers strong two-factor authentication with one-time passwords (OTPs), which means end-users no longer have to remember static passwords. This helps to decrease help desk costs since ASPs will not have to help end-users who forgot or lost their passwords. Furthermore, it eliminates the necessity of a secure infrastructure to keep the static passwords safe. VASCO takes care of all the online security issues while ASPs can focus on their core business.
