Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, Zurich, Switzerland, April 6, 2010 - VASCO Data Security Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; ), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products today announces the availability of DIGIPASS® Pack for Remote Authentication with DIGIPASS® for Mobile. The new packs include DIGIPASS for Mobile licenses, enabling the use of a mobile phone as authentication device. DIGIPASS Pack for Remote Authentication is VASCO’s off-the-shelf authentication solution addressing the security needs of SMEs.

The new addition to the DIGIPASS Pack product line, DIGIPASS for Mobile, leverages the use of mobile phones as an authentication device. DIGIPASS for Mobile can be used for two factor authentication and digital signature. The pack edition is used to gain secure remote access to corporate networks and business applications.

The new packs with DIGIPASS for Mobile are powered by IDENTIKEY® as authentication server. IDENTIKEY is ideally suited for use by SMEs considering it is easy and straightforward in installation. IDENTIKEY is VASCO’s comprehensive authentication server for network and application security offering OTP and e-signature capability.

With its packaged solutions for authentication, VASCO responds to the growing authentication needs of small businesses around the world. DIGIPASS Pack for Remote Authentication is a complete solution in a box.

"Adding two-factor authentication to enhance the security of remote access or business applications is sometimes considered as a burden as enterprises need to equip their employees with authentication devices. By integrating DIGIPASS for Mobile into our DIGIPASS packs, the mobile phone already in the pockets of the employees is used as the authentication platform. As a result the physical distribution of authenticators to employees is overcome. With this we demonstrate again that we understand the needs of SMEs when it comes down to user authentication," says Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security.
