OAKBROOK TERRACE, Illinois and ZURICH, Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in strong authentication products, announces today that VFB (Vlaamse Federatie van Beleggers www.vfb.be), the Flemish Federation of Investors, uses MYDIGIPASS.COM to secure its membership platform.
The Flemish Federation of Investors informs and unites Flemish investors and investor associations. Through its platform, members receive the monthly magazine 'Gids voor de Beste Belegger' and other investor related information. The association also organizes company visits, seminaries and conferences. The platform contains valuable information such as analyst reports, company indexes and notes about stocks and funds and is only available to the 8,000 members who have paid a membership fee.
VFB wanted to secure access to its platform to ensure that only authorized members could consult the confidential information. Each user receives a DIGIPASS and unique log-on to access the platform. The DIGIPASS application can be downloaded for free from the MYDIGIPASS.COM platform. The application generates dynamic, one-time passwords that are valid for a limited time. This reduces the risk of forgotten or lost passwords. Furthermore, as these passwords are not exposed over the internet, they cannot be intercepted by fraudsters.
By making use of the latest authentication technologies, VFB is a true pioneer in the Belgian investor world. The organization herewith demonstrates its commitment to safeguarding the privacy and security of its members' data. By joining the MYDIGIPASS.COM community, VFB offers its members a convenient and versatile tool allowing them not only to securely access the membership platform, but all their favorite applications as well. As MYDIGIPASS.COM provides a single sign-on environment, the user only needs to log on once to access all his applications bundled on the platform.
