VASCO Launches New Optical E-Signature Device DIGIPASS 736 with Adaptive Signing Functionality at CeBIT



OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. and ZURICH -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in strong authentication products, today launches another addition to its e-signature portfolio with DIGIPASS 736, an authentication device that offers adaptive signing and 'what you see is what you sign' capability. DIGIPASS 736 has an outstanding user acceptance thanks to its optical interface which facilitates data transfer during transaction signing. The device eliminates the use of paper-based TAN lists and adds an additional security layer to the bank's infrastructure. It is an authentication solution that is perfectly suited for the German market but it can effortlessly be localized for deployment worldwide.

DIGIPASS 736 offers a solution against so called man-in-the-browser and man-in-the-middle based fraud. The solution combines an ultimate user convenience and speed with a high-level security based on transaction risk. DIGIPASS 736 can help banks to add strong authentication to their retail channels in a cost-effective way by implementing e-signatures for online transaction security without compromising on user-friendliness.

DIGIPASS 736 is equipped with an optical interface that scans the transaction data on the PC screen and transfers them to the display of DIGIPASS 736. The optical device simplifies the electronic signing process considerably and data transfer is completed within seconds. Manual data input via the reader's keyboard is eliminated which greatly enhances user convenience and reduces room for manual errors. End-users simply verify the transaction data on the display of the device and confirm transaction details for signing. This 'what you see is what you sign' capability is further increased by the enhanced two-line graphical display that presents transaction data in a straightforward and legible manner to the end-user. The included magnifying function allows users to display one-time passwords and e-signatures in a larger size if desired.

DIGIPASS 736 is a zero footprint solution that doesn't require any drivers or software to be installed on the end-user's side. Communication between PC and device is established through a flashing pattern on the user's PC and the optical sensors on the reader.

"When deploying an authentication solution, security and user-friendliness are of the utmost importance to ensure customer acceptance," says Jan Valcke, President and COO of VASCO Data Security. "DIGIPASS 736 with its optical interface contributes to user convenience, proving that an authentication solution can provide adequate security but still be straightforward in its use."

VASCO will showcase DIGIPASS 736 at CeBIT, Hannover (Germany), from March 6-10. You can visit VASCO at booth C33 in hall 12.
