VASCO And AET Join Forces And Rally Their Knowledge Into A Concerted PKI Product

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., and ZURICH, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI); ( www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products, announces that it joins forces with the Dutch company A.E.T. Europe B.V.; (AET), market leader in strong authentication with cryptographic tokens and Digital ID Management, to approach the market with a concerted product.

The Dutch company AET, headquartered in Arnhem and founded in 1998, is committed to IT security. AET offers its customers ingenious solutions based on worldwide accepted standards for e-commerce and information security, by developing cryptographic middleware and card management systems. The company is particularly specialized in PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) products.

AET's PKI technology, SafeSign Identity Client, will be integrated into VASCO's DIGIPASS Key product line. The SafeSign IC middleware is designed to integrate digital signature tokens into numerous certificate-enabled applications in order to provide secure two-factor authentication on all major platforms. The combination of SafeSign IC middleware with DIGIPASS KEY enables pre-boot authentication with third party software solutions while offering all benefits of certificate-based authentication with the simplicity and portability of a built-in USB reader.

In general, a computer's booting system is protected by a static password during the pre-boot. However, DIGIPASS KEY with AET's middleware can offer more security thanks to PKI technology with certificates, offering full disk encryption of temporary files and outside the operating system level.

This partnership will be offered in different markets and regions worldwide, hence broadening and strengthening AET's and VASCO's position in the market. As of June, enterprises and banks can opt for this joint technology for document signing, encrypting and signing e-mails or two-factor authentication.

"A partnership between VASCO and AET was just self-evident, because VASCO and AET are so complementary." explains Reinoud Weijman, CEO of AET. "AET is strong in large scale PKI deployments, while VASCO is strong in large scale OTP deployments. We have known each other for years and we are happy that we can work together in this joint project. I truly believe that this partnership between VASCO and AET can reinforce the technology and solutions we bring to the authentication market."
