VASCO Data Security International Inc. announced that its Brazilian distributor TechMag has decided to secure its server infrastructure with VASCO’s DIGIPASS technology. TechMag has implemented the DIGIPASS GO 3 and DIGIPASS for Mobile 3.0 platforms to its commercial department to provide this authentication.
TechMag chose to implement the stronger authentication because its employees login to its system from different locations using different access devices. The VASCO DIGIPASS GO 3 technology replaces static passwords with one-time passwords (OTP) using a device that generates the OTP at the touch of a button. DIGIPASS for Mobile 3.0 is installed directly on users cell phones to implement strong authentication that’s independent of the chip and doesn’t need additional hardware.
TechMag was able to implement the system to the 15 users in the commercial department in one afternoon and will be able to expand the system to all of its employees this quarter, when it expands the use of authentication devices to its management system.
