Condoom-Anoniem offers double security with MYDIGIPASS.COM
OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., and ZURICH, Switzerland, May 28 2013 - VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products, announces that the more than 60,000 customers of the Condoom-Anoniem e-shop (www.condoom-anoniem.nl) can use the MYDIGIPASS.COM platform to execute their purchases in a convenient, anonymous and safe way.
Since 2004, Condoom-Anoniem offers a varied assortment of condoms online. The company has grown into the biggest online shop with this product range in the Netherlands and several times won a prestigious Dutch online shop award. Condoom-Anoniem also sells from an educational point of view: it gives clear and objective information and does not exclude audiences. The company actively cooperates with governmental and non-governmental health organizations and delivers to pharmacies and other health institutions. Condoom-Anoniem plans to expand its business abroad in the near future.
Richard Spooren, founder and director of the company, explains: “To reach out to as many people as possible, we strive to make the online shop accessible for everyone. Therefore, we guarantee the customer’s anonymity and offer a user-friendly purchasing process with fewer steps. With MYDIGIPASS.COM, we do not only improve user convenience, but also lift online security to a higher level.”
MYDIGIPASS.COM ensures secure access to the web store with strong two-factor authentication. Customers can register themselves for free on www.MYDIGIPASS.com and download the DIGIPASS for Mobile app. With this app, customers generate a dynamic password on their mobile device enabling them to log on securely. Dynamic passwords can only be used once in a limited period of time.
Additionally, MYDIGIPASS.COM offers the possibility to use QR codes to log on, hence increasing user convenience. By scanning the QR code, the customer gets safe access to the online shop through his MYDIGIPASS.COM account.
To stimulate user convenience and to guarantee anonymity, the buyer does not need to create an account on Condoom-Anoniem.nl. A receipt address to deliver the package suffices to place an order. Passwords are never stored by the Condoom-Anoniem website. However, consumers can store their passwords and personal details on MYDIGIPASS.COM. He consequently avoids having to fill out his contact details over and over again. When creating online accounts the consumer is able to choose which personal details he wants to share with which online shops and sites.
For the customer, the advantage is clear. However, Condoom-Anoniem sees the upsides as well: “The fewer steps a customer must go through to make a purchase, the higher the conversion rate”, says Spooren. “By using MYDIGIPASS.COM, the purchasing process improves significantly.”
The implementation of MYDIGIPASS.COM on Condoom-Anoniem.nl went smoothly. Plugins for commonly used platforms, such as Drupal, Wordpress and Magento, ensure that other e-shops can easily sign up to offer their customers the same level of security and user convenience.
“This cooperation is an important step in building the online MYDIGIPASS.COM community,” says Ken Hunt, Founder, Chairman and CEO of VASCO Data Security. “For Condoom-Anoniem, this cooperation is also of huge importance. This web shop is constantly seeking ways to guarantee user convenience and anonymity while at the same time increasing security. With the implementation of MYDIGIPASS.COM, the online shop adds an extra layer of security ensuring its customers a purchase without security issues”
