Looking to build a flexible security infrastructure that is easily accessible by customers and employees from anywhere and at any time? Digipass 270 opens the door. The small and lightweight Digipass 270 offers the same secure remote access and authentication features of Digipass 250/260-but is extremely compact. Its streamlined design 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 270 enables digital signatures for transactions.

Strong two-factor authentication

The Digipass 270 solution is based on strong two-factor authentication. To gain access to applications and services you must:

  1. Know your Personal Identification Number (PIN), and
  2. Possess a hand-held Digipass 270.

The PIN code is entered into the Digipass 270 which generates a dynamic password. This one-time password (OTP) enables secure authorized access to the network.

Intuitive user interface and advanced design

With an expected battery life of five years, Digipass 270 is a reliable part of any total enterprise security solution. Its keypad and simple graphic interface are so easy to use, no technical training or user guide is ever needed. Universally recognizable display icons walk you through simple steps that always provide an option to go back one step or restart from the beginning.

Maximum flexibility

Digipass 270 can be customized for your specific applications. Security parameters such as PIN length, number of PIN trials, length of challenge and response are all programmable features. The end result is an optimum balance of user-friendliness, cost efficiency and security.


The Digipass 270 keyboard can be customized with specific colors and logos based on your individual branding. Your company image is prominently displayed each time Digipass 270 is used.

Providing Safe Internet Transactions

Digipass 270 technology enhances the security of your web-based services. Whether it is using Digipass 270 dynamic passwords to log-on to a restricted web site or creating digital signatures to sign a financial transaction, you have greater control over who is trying to perform each activity.
