technology into its SSL VPN solution -->
VASCO Data Security International, Inc., a leading software security company specializing in strong authentication products and services, announces today that Telenet (www.telenet.be) has implemented VASCO s DIGIPASS technology into its SSL VPN solution.
Telenet, a leading provider of broadband cable services in Belgium, launches today its new SSL VPN cloud service. This service now enables Telenet s B2B clients external remote access to their corporate network and applications from any computer or device with an Internet connection, without having to install hard- or software on their company network.
In order to protect the corporate network and business-critical information from unauthorized external access, Telenet appealed to VASCO. Telenet opted for IDENTIKEY Authentication Server on the server side and VASCO s DIGIPASS for Mobile software solution. With DIGIPASS for Mobile, employees always have an authentication device at hand, as the application is downloaded on the user s mobile phone, smart phone or tablet. It generates dynamic passwords allowing the user to securely log on to the network. These dynamic passwords are valid for a limited time and cannot be stored for later use by fraudsters. With this new service, Telenet also offers its B2B customers a fully hosted SSL VPN service allowing IT administrators direct access to the overall IDENTIKEY Authentication Server to manage user access control among others, without having to invest in hardware and maintenance of a security solution.
"We have a long-standing relationship with VASCO," says Martine Tempels, Senior Vice President Telenet for Business at Telenet. "With the increasing number of remote offices, mobile workers and BYOD concepts, offering an SSL VPN service in the cloud is a logical step in the further development of our products and services for businesses. Not every company has the necessary resources, time and / or technical knowledge to adequately secure its remote access. Through this partnership with VASCO, we are able to offer these customers a secure, comprehensive and above all, user-friendly solution.
"We are very pleased with this partnership," says Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security. "Telenet's strategic vision is consistent with that of VASCO: bringing authentication within everyone s reach compromising user convenience. In today's business world, it is increasingly important that data are always available in real time. Thanks to the integration of DIGIPASS and IDENTIKEY companies can rest assured that their confidential information won t fall into the wrong hands."
