Compact Size. Strong authentication.

3 minute read

Looking to build a flexible security infrastructure that is easily accessible by customers and employees from anywhere and at any time? Digipass 260 opens the door. The small and lightweight Digipass 260 offers secure remote access and authentication features. On top of that it has a streamlined design, which can be customized according to your marketing needs.

It’s the ideal password-protected personal identification device for banks, enterprises and organizations needing an effective and cost-efficient, high-volume solution. In addition, Digipass 260 enables digital signatures for transactions.

Strong two-factor authentication

The Digipass 260 solution is based on strong two-factor authentication. To gain access to applications and services you must:

  1. remember a Personal Identification Number (PIN), and
  2. possess a hand-held Digipass 260.

The PIN code is entered into Digipass 260 which then calculates a dynamic password. This one-time password enables secure authorized access into the network.

Intuitive user interface and advanced design

Tough, shock-resistant materials make Digipass 260 a reliable part of any total enterprise security solution. Its ergonomic keypad and simple graphic interface are so easy to use, no technical training or user manual is needed.

Universally recognizable display icons walk you through the simple steps and there’s always an option to return to the previous screen or restart from the beginning.

Maximum flexibility

Digipass 260 can be customized to your specific applications. Security parameters such as PIN length, number of PIN trials, type of cryptographic algorithm, lengths of challenge and response, are all programmable. Result: you get an optimum balance of user-friendliness, cost efficiency and security.

Low cost puts it at the top of its class

In the academic world, e-transactions usually concern an exchange of information, not money. Nevertheless, the importance of security must not be diminished. OneSpan’s Digipass 260 can provide educational institutions with highly secure solutions for guarding against breaches of confidentiality and unauthorized access to data.

Further, OneSpan’s technology wins high marks for offering high functionality and flexibility at a low total cost.


Making internet transactions more safe

Digipass 260 technology enhances the security of your webbased services. Whether you are using Digipass 260 dynamic passwords to log-on to a restricted website or create digital signatures to sign a financial transaction, you have greater control over who is trying to perform what activity.
