Digipass Easy Pack aims primarily at the Small and Medium Sized Enterprise (SME) market. In recent studies, the security weaknesses of SME networks became alarmingly apparent. There are several reasons for the lack of Internet security at smaller companies. The first reason is the lack of IT resources in small business, both with regards to budget and available IT staff. The second reason is the lack of suitable and affordable products for that type of company.
Digipass Easy Pack is an answer to every one of the above mentioned problems. The product is easily installed, integrated and maintained. In addition, Digipass Easy Pack is affordable and very easy to manage. A SME implementing Digipass Easy Pack, will not need a legion of IT professionals to get it working.

• For companies that want to grow their number of Digipass Easy Pack users, a Digipass Additional 10-Pack is available;

“With Digipass Easy Pack, we serve an audience that has been neglected by the industry for many years,” said Jan Valcke, VASCO’s President and COO. “Nowadays, strong user authentication is a must on the Internet.

With Digipass Easy Pack, VASCO brings bank level security to the SME market.”
