OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., and  ZURICH,  April 11, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data
Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) (www.vasco.com), a leading software
security company specializing in authentication products and services, today
announced that users of  Legalmail, the certified electronic mail service from
InfoCert (Italy), benefit from an extra layer of security, thanks to VASCO's 
MYDIGIPASS.COMservice.  InfoCert is the leading Certification body in  Italy,
with four and a half million certified digital signatures, nine hundred thousand
certified electronic mailboxes and a further four hundred and fifty million
documents stored for back-up.  

MYDIGIPASS.COM is VASCO's hosted consumer authentication platform in the cloud.
The platform combines high-level security with ultimate user convenience.
Website owners can integrate strong authentication using one-time passwords to
secure access to their services and content. Consumers can download a free
DIGIPASS to securely log on to B-to-B and B-to-C web applications through
MYDIGIPASS.COM. The platform facilitates password management and enables
end-users to manage their online credentials in one trusted place.

Users of InfoCert can register themselves on  www.MYDIGIPASS.COM  and download
the free DIGIPASS for Mobile application. With DIGIPASS for Mobile users can
generate a dynamic one-time password on their PC, cell phone, tablet or mobile
device to securely log on to the Legalmail application. MYDIGIPASS.COM is also
natively embedded in third-party platforms such as Intel's Ultrabook processors.

"We make it a priority to continuously improve our service," states  Danilo
Cattaneo, InfoCert's Director General. "By integrating MYDIGIPASS.COM into
Legalmail we can offer double added value to our customers, increase access
security and provide even greater convenience and satisfaction in the use of our
products."

InfoCert realized many benefits by incorporating MYDIGIPASS.COM. Legalmail's
customer base consists mainly of businesses, companies, associations, public and
professional bodies, totalling around 900,000 active mailboxes. With the
integration, InfoCert has facilitated password management and recovery for its
many end users  

"We recently launched a new and more advanced version of MYDIGIPASS.COM making
it available for the first time in Italian," commented  Jan Valcke, President
and CEO of VASCO Data Security. "We are extremely proud that MYDIGIPASS.COM has
been chosen by a security-savvy company like InfoCert. This confirms the value
of our solution."  

"Intel is committed to providing a secure and protected online environment for
consumer, business enterprise, government and professional users," said  George
Thangadurai, General Manager, PC Client Services at Intel Corporation.  "That is
why Intel has collaborated with VASCO to ensure that Intel Identity Protection
Technology that is built into all Intel inspired-Ultrabook devices and other PCs
based on Intel Core processors, combines with VASCO's MYDIGIPASS.COM to allow
InfoCert users to access their Legalmail box in a more secure and quicker way
without all the problems generated by multiple passwords management."
