VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI), the global number one vendor of strong user authentication products to the financial sector, today announced that Digipass will be integrated into SAB2i's Internet banking solution.
As a result, SAB2i customers will be able to enjoy Phishing-free e-banking.
VASCO's VACMAN Controller and Digipass authentication products have been natively integrated into SAB, SAB2i's Banking ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning). This means that there is no need for a third-party authentication server. New or existing SAB customers will be able to add Digipass strong authentication to their system by uploading the Digipass secrets into VASCO's VACMAN Controller and rolling out the soft or hardware Digipass to the end- users.
"By partnering with SAB2i, we have brought Digipass two-factor authentication to SAB's customers," said Jan Valcke, VASCO's President & COO. "We are convinced that due to this cooperation, more banks will offer Digipass to their customers in France, other French overseas areas, and other geographies."
"Banks need the Internet to be extremely secure before offering Internet Banking to their customers without being scared of fraud attempts from hackers," said Patrick Fourlinnie, SAB2i's Head of Department of New Technologies. "We looked for technical solutions guaranteeing a high level of security for our customers. We opted for VASCO's Digipass because it is easy to use, reliable and highly secure. Beside the quality of the solution itself, we appreciate the ease of integration of Digipass. VASCO gave us all the support needed for the full integration."
