New version of DIGIPASS for Mobile combines excellent user convenience with enhanced security
VASCO today launches a new version of DIGIPASS for Mobile. DIGIPASS for Mobile 4.0 offers an enhanced user experience through the use of QR codes and more enhanced provisioning and deployment options.
Banks, financial institutions and corporations worldwide increasingly offer online and mobile applications to their customer base in order to keep up with customer demand and the fast-paced Internet community. These applications however, are increasingly being targeted by fraudsters trying to compromise information and transactions for their own financial gain. DIGIPASS for Mobile 4.0 addresses these challenges, providing banks and enterprises with a superior security solution to secure online access and transactions.
DIGIPASS for Mobile 4.0 provides two-factor authentication with one-time passwords and e-signature functionality to address security risks associated with online and mobile applications. One new feature is the application is bound to device-dependent components and linked to the user with a PIN code, preventing the application from being duplicated on another phone or mobile device. The new version also offers enhanced provisioning capabilities, including provisioning options for DIGIPASS using a Hardware Security Module, server-side implementation. Furthermore, the application supports eight different crypto-applications, allowing an extended use in different settings such as IVR, online connections, signatures, offline transactions etc.
User-convenience is also greatly enhanced with DIGIPASS for Mobile 4.0 in its supports of QR-codes. Users simply capture the QR code, enter their PIN code and are instantly logged on to the application. Document or transaction signing is equally simple. Users capture the QR code, verify the summary displayed by DIGIPASS for Mobile on their device and validate the transaction by entering their PIN code. DIGIPASS for Mobile will generate an e-signature that is automatically sent to the requesting server. The DIGIPASS application can now be activated in an instant without any additional manual input simply by capturing the QR code and customers willing to outsource the provisioning of DIGIPASS can make use of VASCO’s Service-Provisioning-
The application is fully customisable based on customers’ individual requirements and comes with a complete set of tools allowing customers to publish their own company branded application on common application stores.
