VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI), the global number one vendor of strong user authentication and e-signature products, today announced that the Dutch SNS Bank is the first bank in The Netherlands to provide Digipass 300 Comfort Voice to its blind and visually impaired customers.

The Netherlands count 625,000 blind and visually impaired.

SNS Bank plans to start distribution of Digipass 300 Comfort Voice in June 2006. Digipass 300 Comfort Voice adds speech to VASCO's strong authentication range.

"It is important that visually impaired people can manage their e-banking business in an independent way," tells Geert Joosten, President of Federatie Slechtzienden en Blindenbelang (Dutch Federation for the Visually Impaired and the Blind). "A speaking Digipass would be step in the right direction. We are looking forward to the introduction of the device."

"We congratulate SNS Bank with its choice for full accessibility of its services," said Jan Valcke, VASCO's President and COO. "SNS Bank shows that it is possible to offer all online customers an accessible, easy to use and secure e-banking service."
