OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill.  and  ZURICH,  March 27, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data
Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) (www.vasco.com), a leading software
security company specializing in authentication products, announces today the
launch of its updated IDENTIKEY Federation Server version 1.2. IDENTIKEY
Federation Server is VASCO's authentication and access management server,
designed to validate user login on web-hosted applications.

IDENTIKEY Federation Server is used to validate user credentials across multiple
applications and disparate networks. The solution validates users and creates an
identity ticket enabling web single sign-on for different applications across
organizational boundaries. The solution is extremely well suited for large
corporations, governments, non-profit organizations and educational institutions
looking to secure and manage access to different web-based applications and
portals. The single administrative interface and user repository relieve
administrators from the cumbersome task of maintaining diverse password
databases and different authorization and authentication policies for each
application separately.

The newest version of IDENTIKEY Federation Server works seamlessly together with
the ADFS 2.0 software component, offering integrated single sign-on services for
well-known applications such as Office 365. The web single sign-on feature
provided by IDENTIKEY Federation Server greatly enhances end-user experience.
End-users saves time by sidestepping different logon procedures and do not need
to memorize several password and username combinations.  

Furthermore, VASCO enables integrated support for OAuth identity and service
providers. OAuth 2.0 is an open authentication protocol which enables
applications to access each other's data. By integrating this support feature,
customers can deploy VASCO's MYDIGIPASS.COM two-factor authentication in
combination with their web hosted applications and IDENTIKEY Federation Server.

VASCO has further optimized support for Google Apps and Salesforce.com by
providing preconfigured configuration pages providing customers with a smoother
integration experience and a faster installation process.  

"VASCO commits itself once more to improve user convenience while maintaining
high standard security levels with this enhanced version of IDENTIKEY Federation
Server," says  Jan Valcke, President and COO of VASCO." The increasing number of
web applications that each require separate login procedures drives the demand
for identity management and single sign-on solutions. IDENTIKEY Federation
Server in combination with VASCO'S two-factor authentication creates the
ultimate time-saving and cost-efficient single sign-on environment allowing
companies to reallocate their resources and focus on their core business."


VASCO is a leading supplier of strong authentication and e-signature solutions
and services specializing in Internet security applications and transactions.
VASCO has positioned itself as a global software company for Internet security
serving a customer base of approximately 10,000 companies in more than 100
countries, including approximately 1,700 international financial institutions.
