VASCO Launches DIGIPASS 870 With "What You See Is What You Sign" Functionality

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., and ZURICH, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) (, a leading software security company specializing in authentication products, launches DIGIPASS 870 at CeBit 2013 in Hannover, Germany. DIGIPASS 870 is a USB connectable card reader which can be used in both connected and unconnected mode.

In connected mode DIGIPASS 870 can be used for a number of PKI-based, e-banking or e-wallet applications making use of the 'what you see is what you sign' functionality.  Important transaction data such as amount, account and reference number will be displayed on the device and must be confirmed by the user by entering a PIN code and approving the transaction. This WYSIWYS functionality enables users to actually see which transaction they are signing. The e-signature functionality provides excellent protection against so called man-in-the-middle, man-in-the browser attacks and similar fraud schemes. The device is directly linked to the bank system via a secure connection. Its large screen with a full graphical display allows extended data field validation on the display of the device.

Furthermore, PIN codes are directly entered on the reader and not on the computer keyboard. Therefore, the PIN is never exposed over the internet or PC platform. Similarly, smart card PIN changes can be securely performed using the DIGIPASS 870 keyboard. Additionally, a firewall mechanism protects the card from unauthorized access.

When used in unconnected mode, the card reader offers the same functionality as other unconnected DIGIPASS devices, including strong authentication and e-signatures.

DIGIPASS 870 can be used with all standard operating systems, such as Windows, Linux and MacOS. The card reader doesn't require the installation of separate drivers and is not personalized, allowing for easy deployment and distribution to large customer bases. The card reader is perfectly suited for environments with high security requirements including digital signatures, secure PIN verification, corporate network access, strong authentication (internet banking), e-commerce transactions, etc.
