Cloud Partner Program
OAKBROOK TERRACE, Illinois and ZURICH, Switzerland – September 25, 2012 - VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) (www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products, launches its Cloud Partner Program for partners in EMEA. With this program, VASCO supports its channel partners in introducing and advising on strong user authentication solutions for online web-based applications. VASCO will always provide the channel partners with the latest information on new technologies, products and solutions.
This program focuses on existing and new Channel Partners in EMEA who aim at customers that offer solutions, services or products online. Many of those providers do not have a solution to the cyber threats they and their customers are facing. VASCO’s DIGIPASS as a Service and MYDIGIPASS.COM offer strong authentication to protect content, user data, e-commerce environments and to secure customer service back-office tasks.
In particular, providers using Magento, Wordpress and Drupal can benefit from this cloud program. Wordpress and Magento have already incorporated MYDIGIPASS.COM on their platforms and Drupal has added MYDIGIPASS.COM for Drupal v6 to its contributed modules, enabling web developers to embed secure login access for the websites, blogs, e-shops, … they are building. The developer simply has to download and install the MYDIGIPASS.COM plugin.
Channel partners will be able to access the program through VASCO’s e-learning platform SEAL (Security Experts Academy & eLearning). This allows them to access the training program where and whenever it suits them.
Partners who successfully complete the training receive the certification of VASCO Cloud Partner. With this certification, the VASCO partner level can be increased. The different levels of partnership lead to different types of support and margins. It also offers partners the opportunity to obtain more knowledge on VASCO‘s solutions and to stay up-to-date on the latest trends in security. This will help them in finding more sales opportunities and generate more revenue.
“This VASCO Cloud Partner Program is a separate Partner program for our cloud offering,” explains Jan Valcke President and COO of VASCO Data Security. “Our focus will be to activate our existing channel partners, but with this program we can attract a new ‘type’ of partners, such as e-commerce developers, cloud application hosts, ISVs, ISPs, ASPs, web builders, etc.”
VASCO is a leading supplier of strong authentication and e-signature solutions and services specializing in Internet Security applications and transactions. VASCO has positioned itself as global software company for Internet Security serving a customer base of approximately 10,000 companies in more than 100 countries, including over 1,700 international financial institutions.
