OAKBROOK TERRACE, Illinois and ZURICH, Switzerland – April 21th, 2011 – VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in strong authentication products, today announced that it will organize a Banking Summit in New York on April 28th, 2011.

Security is becoming more and more important in the North American financial world and banks are taking action to assure safe online account access for their clients. Securing online banking transactions reduces fraud to a minimum. The use of OTPs (one-time passwords) assures a high-level security because an OTP is only valid during a limited period of time and can only be used once. By adding an e-signature functionality to sign online transactions, banks can effectively secure their customers against man-in-the-middle-attacks.

“During the VASCO Banking Summit, VASCO clients will share their VASCO experience with our prospects. Since North America is a strategically important market for VASCO, we want to give other companies the opportunity to get to know the benefits of working with VASCO’s strong authentication solutions and show them how they can protect online transactions,” declares T.Kendall Hunt, Founder, Chairman and CEO of VASCO Data Security.
The Banking Summit is organized for financial institutions only. To register, visit http://www.vasco.com/company/events/nabs.aspx
