VASCO and OpSource Partnership, More Security in the Cloud

VASCO Data Security International, Inc., a software security company that specializes in authentication products, has partnered with OpSource, Inc., a cloud and management solutions company. VASCO’s authentication platforms VACMAN, IDENTIKEY and its cloud-based authentication DIGIPASS as a Service offering are now available for the OpSource Cloud.

OpSource enables businesses of all sizes to accelerate growth and scale operations while controlling costs and reducing IT infrastructure support risks. With this partnership, VASCO’s strong authentication and e-signature solutions have been tested and validated on the OpSource Cloud. VASCO adds additional security to OpSource’s Cloud platform, offering businesses cloud and managed hosting solutions that are secure, high performance and easy to manage.

The joint partnership provides enterprises with customized and secure cloud-based services that match business needs in addition to their application hosting requirements.

“We have seen dramatic increases in the demand for public cloud hosting, however, many organizations are still hesitant to trust business-critical information to the cloud,” says Jon Beck, senior vice president of World Channels and Alliances at OpSource. “Through this partnership with VASCO, we deliver joint clients a high-performance cloud solution with convenient and secure authentication and login.”

VASCO’s two-factor authentication technology replaces less secure static passwords with dynamic one-time passwords. This enhances access security without compromising user convenience, thus, assuring clients that only properly authenticated users gain access to the OpSource network.

“VASCO has a longstanding experience in providing security solutions for businesses prone to identity and data fraud,” says T. Kendall Hunt, founder, chairman and CEO of VASCO Data Security. “With its authentication platforms and DIGIPASS as a Service offering, VASCO provides an additional security layer for cloud application providers mitigating risk of fraud and data theft and boosting end-user confidence.”

“With the combination of VASCO’s authentication solutions and OpSource’s cloud application platform, we will together provide enterprises with a more comprehensive and secure cloud infrastructure,” Hunt adds.

OpSource was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Santa Clara with operations in California, Virginia, the United Kingdom, Ireland and India.

VASCO has positioned itself as 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. VASCO’s prime markets are the financial sector, enterprise security, e-commerce and e-government.
