KBC Bank to issue Digipass card readers

09 January 2007  |  6645 views  |  0

Belgian banking group KBC is rolling out Vasco's Digipass 810 authentication devices to its 500,000 online retail banking customers.

Customers will use the KBC card reader along with their debit card when accessing Web accounts and making online transactions.

Kristof Browaeys, e-channel manager at KBC Bank, says the system brings customers a high level of security without the need to install additional software.

"To bank or shop online our clients now only need an Internet Connection, their debit card and a KBC Card Reader. Because the security technique is linked to the debit card, our clients don't have to remember any passwords either, just their PIN code," says Browaeys.

KBC will issue the Digipass 810 smart card reader to its online banking customers during the course of this year.
