VASCO Data Security and Trusteer partner to secure web applications

Integration of application protection and strong authentication prevents financial and cyber fraud

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., and ZURICH, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data Security Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products, and Trusteer, the leader in endpoint cybercrime prevention solutions that protect organizations against financial fraud and data breaches, today announced a partnership to secure online transactions, applications and access to sensitive information. With this agreement, Trusteer and VASCO unite their efforts against fraudulent attempts, each by securing a critical part of the transaction process.

VASCO's software solutions are used to authenticate users of identities and financial transactions. VASCO authentication significantly increases security for online access to web applications in a convenient way. Fraud attempts, such as Man-in-the-Middle attacks and phishing, have become an increasing concern to many applications and VASCO has focused its efforts to provide solutions against such attacks.

Trusteer Rapport protects endpoints, running VASCO DIGIPASS authentication, from malware and phishing attacks designed to steal users' access credentials. Once installed, Trusteer Rapport removes existing financial malware from end-user machines and prevents future infections by stopping attempts to exploit browser vulnerabilities and install malware on the endpoint. It blocks key logging and screen capturing used by malware to steal login credentials from online banking web pages. Trusteer ensures that the device, running VASCO DIGIPASS, and the browser are not compromised by malware while VASCO elevates the level of authentication to prevent account takeover attacks.

The combined solution of VASCO's DIGIPASS software with Trusteer's Rapport ensures convenient and banking level security to online applications. The solution is ideal for consumer applications that are accessing sensitive information. With the increase of fraudulent activity, the combination represents a major step in the evolution of consumer security.

"Our partnership with Trusteer is a good example of VASCO's continuing evolution into secure software and services to meet the needs of the consumer," says Jan Valcke, President and COO of VASCO Data Security. "Our software DIGIPASS was an answer to the market's need to create an easy-to-use, secure authentication system. By partnering with Trusteer, we are able to enhance this process by protecting against the growing concern of malware."

"Advanced malware is able to bypass all forms of authentication solutions. Even when using a strong authentication system, if the endpoint is infected with malware any application that is accessed, including online banking, enterprise applications, etc., is at risk," said Yaron Dycian, Vice President of Products for Trusteer. "Our partnership with VASCO provides end-to-end security that secures the authentication mechanism from tampering by malware and blocks any attempts to compromise online banking, enterprise and cloud application sessions."
