VASCO Data Security announces a secure solution for document viewing

April 29, 2010

Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, Zurich, Switzerland, April 29, 2010 - VASCO Data Security Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; ), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products today announced a solution for secure document viewing. VASCO has incorporated its VACMAN Controller authentication technology with Adobe® LiveCycle® Rights Management Enterprise Suite 2 (ES2), offering a secure solution for documents that need to be accessed over the Internet. By adding support for VASCO DIGIPASS, the company’s one time password (OTP) technology, customers can further protect sensitive information from being exposed by adding two factor authentication for secure document viewing.

By integrating VASCO authentication technology with LiveCycle Rights Management ES2, enterprises can now securely send documents online to reduce administrative handling and filing costs and strengthen corporate data governance and data loss prevention strategies.

Using LiveCycle Rights Management ES2, customers can encrypt files and apply policies that help them maintain the confidentiality and control the use of documents. This allows organizations to lower their risk by preventing inadvertent or malicious disclosure of sensitive or confidential information.

With this new collaboration between VASCO and Adobe, when a user opens a document, LiveCycle Rights Management ES2 will ask for a username and OTP to allow access. The user will generate an OTP using his DIGIPASS and enter it in the authentication dialog, providing secure access to the document.

"Adobe and VASCO share a vision in delivering compelling security solutions to businesses and government agencies," said John Landwehr, director of security solutions and strategy at Adobe. "The integration of VASCO’s VACMAN Controller authentication technology with Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management ES2 will enable VASCO’s customers to turn sensitive online data into intelligent, policy-protected documents to further ensure privacy and security.”

“We are excited about our collaboration with Adobe. They are the experts in secure document handling and distribution. With documents increasingly being exchanged online, the risk of data breach has only increased. By integrating DIGIPASS authentication with Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management ES2 capabilities, higher assurance levels can now be realized to securely exchange documents and comply with corporate data governance rules,” says Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security.
