Vasco Data Security International (Nasdaq: VDSI), a leading software security company specializing in strong authentication products, announces today that its Digipass as a Service platform is now available for Google AppsT.

DIGIPASS as a Service is VASCO's cloud-based authentication offering for web based applications. Application providers are increasingly aware about the security risk static passwords pose and accelerate investments in strong user authentication to protect end-users' business-critical information.

Google AppsT is a hosted service for communication and affairs tools, designed for businesses of all sizes. The web-based messaging and collaboration apps do not require any hardware or software installation and only minimal administration. As all data is stored online, access control is an all-important matter. Password security is known to be the weakest link in a security infrastructure. DIGIPASS as a Service, VASCO's cloud based authentication service, is designed for companies that do not want to invest in the overhead expenses commonly associated with the implementation and maintenance of two-factor authentication.

VASCO manages the full authentication process enabling the application provider to focus on its core business. The DIGIPASS as a Service offering includes a fully backed-up hosted authentication back-end, the provisioning of DIGIPASS software or hardware authenticators to end-users, DIGIPASS services including professional and fulfillment services as well as first line support.

Making the DIGIPASS as a Service offering available for Google AppsT is the evident next step in the development of cloud based authentication for the business-to-employee (B2E) segment focusing on employee's security needs. Earlier, VASCO launched its hosted authentication services for the B2B segment.

In a first phase, DIGIPASS as a Service for B-to-B was launched. Now, the second phase has taken off: DIGIPASS as a Service targets the B-to-E-market. Employees are indeed the end-users of Google AppsT. The third phase in the roll-out will focus on the B-to-C market. Typical consumer applications that VASCO wants to secure are online gaming, e-commererce or social networks.

"DIGIPASS as a Service meets the growing need of application providers to add strong user authentication to their applications in a cloud-based offering", says Ken Hunt, Founder, Chairman and CEO of VASCO Data Security. "This partnership is an important step for VASCO and broadens the reach of our service offering."
