London, UK - January 16, 2013 - VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in strong authentication products and services, announced today the release of its IDENTIKEY Virtual Appliance.
IDENTIKEY Virtual appliance complements VASCO’s successful IDENTIKEY Appliance product range offering hypervisor remote access security providing customers with the flexibility to choose the deployment model that best meets their unique security requirements.
The virtual appliance delivers the same unmatched security features and functionality as the current stand-alone hardware IDENTIKEY Appliance. Offering the many benefits of virtualization such as cost savings, rapid deployment and provisioning, simplified policy management and a web based administrator interface, IDENTIKEY Virtual Appliance is an excellent choice for organisations that have developed a virtualization strategy and are looking to move their security infrastructure to a virtual environment.
IDENTIKEY Virtual Appliance validates DIGIPASS generated one-time passwords and e-signatures to secure remote access to corporate networks and web-based applications offering high-level security by replacing weak static passwords. The appliance is supported on the most popular hypervisor products, guaranteeing a widespread acceptance.
The virtual appliance complements the existing IDENTIKEY offering:
- IDENTIKEY Authentication Server: a robust and complete off-the-shelf centralized authentication server
- IDENTIKEY Federation Server: a server appliance providing you with the most powerful identity & access management platform
- IDENTIKEY Appliance: merges the IDENTIKEY Authentication Server and a 19”physical appliance into a completely managed server
“With the release of the IDENTIKEY Virtual Appliance, VASCO answers organisations’ growing business needs driven by increasing mobility and virtualization,” states Jan Valcke President and COO of VASCO Data Security. “The extended portfolio of VASCO's authentication server products provides customers with a wide choice of highly scalable and cost-effective security solutions allowing them to stay ahead in the rapid changing IT landscape while protecting their corporate assets.”
This complete and strong offer is available as of mid-February and addresses the needs of small and large companies in any market, as well as financial institutions that are looking to deploy an on-premise solution with the highest security.
