Belgian co’s combine on mobile security

29 Sep 2011

Belgian tech companies Vasco and Option have combined their products to introduce a new authentication solution, Cloudkey.

Essentially a Vasco Digipass for mobiles, Cloudkey is designed to provide mobile users with secure access to cloud apps.

Using Option’s USB modem and connection management software, Cloudkey provides mobile device owners with a one-time password (OTP) every time they seek access to a cloud app, thus lowering the risk of security breaches to cloud data while eliminating the need to memorise a lot of passwords.

Vasco president and COO, Jan Valcke, says in a statement that the partnership with Option demonstrates the company’s commitment to embedding its products on different platforms.

"Cloudkey is the result of our co-operation,” Valcke says, "and demonstrates how we can deliver solutions that simplify strong security together.”

Vasco has four channel partners in NZ: Business Technology Group, Datastor,  Optimation and Network Pro.
