VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (NASDAQ:VDSI), the leading software security company specializing in authentication products, today announced that it has developed Digipass 805, an ultra-light one-button smart card reader.
The launch of the product fits perfectly into VASCO's Full Option, All-Terrain product strategy.
Digipass 805 boasts the entire range of functionalities that are also offered by its pin-pad enabled brethren such as Digipass 800 and Digipass 810. Thanks to the multifunctional button, the device is e-signature enabled, in addition to the one-time password and host authentication functionalities.
With Digipass 805, VASCO aims at the segment of junior bank account holders and the potentially important b-to-c e-commerce market. VASCO believes that Digipass 805 will prove to be a huge success. The company already received firm orders for the product.
"It is one of VASCO's objectives to offer a broad range of Digipass client authentication software to our customers based on the VACMAN core authentication platform," said Jan Valcke, VASCO's President and COO. "We see that a growing number of financial institutions and e-commerce companies want to protect different segments of their customer base with different client authentication devices.
