Digipass 270 Xpress Datasheet

Ultra-portable strong authentication

2 minute read


Designed for mass deployments, Digipass 270 Xpress offers e-signature and one-time password (OTP) functionality. An effective tool against financial fraud and man-in-the-middle attacks, suited for massive deployments considering distribution can be handled through traditional postal services.

Online transactions are scrutinized by hackers who want to turn the e-transaction to their benefit. Fraud schemes are becoming more and more sophisticated, such as man-in-the-middle and man-in-the-browser attacks. Banks are therefore increasingly adopting defense mechanisms using electronic transaction signing.

Digipass 270 Xpress enhances the security of web-based services. The e-signature functionality provides an excellent defense against so called man-in-the-middle attacks. Digipass 270 Xpress ensures that banks and other organizations can economically deploy a comprehensive, scalable, high performance two-factor authentication solution. OneSpan’s Digipass 270 Xpress ensures an optimal balance between user-friendliness, cost-efficiency and security.

How does it work?

To activate the device, the user will use his personal identification code (PIN). Once activated, the user simply chooses the one-time password or the e-signature application by pushing on the dedicated function button. Whether dynamic passwords are used to log-on to a restricted web site or e-signatures are created to sign a financial transaction, banks have greater control over who is trying to log-on or execute a transaction.

Intuitive user interface

Digipass 270 Xpress was designed to enhance user-friendliness and user acceptance. Its keypad uses universally accepted icons and a simple graphic interface. Furthermore, Digipass 270 Xpress is extremely compact, making it ultraportable for the end-user.

Digipass 270 Xpress is suited for large deployments: the device is ultra-flat making it suited for distributing using standard postal services in most countries.

Fully customizable

The keyboard of Digipass 270 Xpress can be customized with corporate colors and logos. Even a full color picture can be used on the front or back of the device and the welcome message, displayed when the device is switched on, can be customized.

As a result Digipass 270 Xpress fully supports corporate branding and differentiates your device from the competition.
