news_VASCO Data Security and MoadBus are partnering to deliver digital signature for mobile banking and mobile cash solutions
OAKBROOK TERRACE, Illinois and ZURICH, Switzerland – May 12, 2009 - VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) (www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products, and MoadBus, a software products and services provider to the international financial sector, announce that they have joined forces to deliver digital signature on mobile banking and mobile cash solutions to joint customers.
MoadBus develops scalable and easily manageable mobile banking and NFC based mobile payment solutions among their portfolio of products. The various mobile solutions from MoadBus seamlessly integrate with different software platforms, protocols, databases, and devices and are compatible with any generation mobile phone. In order to enhance the security of these solutions, VASCO DIGIPASS® strong authentication and digital signature will be integrated into MoadBus’ MBanking and Mobile-Cash applications.
This partnership is based on the flexibility of VASCO’s DIGIPASS® API offering that allows solution providers to transparently embed strong authentication and e-signature functionalities into mobile banking applications while maintaining existing backend infrastructure.
Joint banking customers will be offered a user-friendly security solution to protect them from password theft, unauthorized account access, and Man-in-the-Middle attacks. The end user’s mobile phone will become their authentication device for all their mobile banking and mobile cash transactions.
Existing MoadBus customers will be offered the possibility to add DIGIPASS authentication and digital signature to their applications. While current VASCO customers will be able to further build upon their investments when adding mobile banking capabilities to their service offering. Both partners are already in the process of deploying a first pilot.
According to Amarnath Nanduri, COO at MoadBus: “VASCO’s leadership in strong authentication, especially in the financial sector makes them the best partner we can team up with to secure mobile banking solutions for our customers.”
“MoadBus has developed a solid reputation in the delivery of m-banking and m-cash solutions, especially in the U.S. and Asia. We are convinced that by teaming up with them, we can grow the market for secure mobile banking.”, says Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security.
