OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., and ZURICH, Switzerland, Nov. 19, 2013 -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI;, a leading software security company specializing in authentication products and services, today announced the launch of DIGIPASS 760, a visual transaction signing solution. DIGIPASS 760 is the first successful integration of Cronto's patented solution into VASCO's DIGIPASS product line.

DIGIPASS 760 is an innovative authentication device targeted towards banks, enabling them to establish a secure optical communication channel with the client. The solution works with the CrontoSign technology whereby a graphical cryptogram consisting of a matrix of colored dots is displayed on the bank's website.

Account holders enter their transaction details on the bank's website. These details are then encrypted and presented as a graphical cryptogram on the user's computer or tablet. Users simply "scan" this image with the DIGIPASS 760's built-in camera. The DIGIPASS 760 instantly captures and decrypts the colored cryptogram and the transaction details are presented on the DIGIPASS color display for user verification. A signature is then generated on the DIGIPASS 760 which the user enters on the bank's website to confirm the transaction.

The solution offers an ultimate user convenience as what you see, is what you sign. User interaction is reduced since the encrypted data from the PC display are automatically transferred to DIGIPASS 760. The innovative transaction signing solution is also future-proof as it provides banks with an option to create their own text or messaging on the display allowing them to add different applications and adapt to the threats and business requirements of tomorrow.

"We are very excited to introduce DIGIPASS 760, the first complete integration of Cronto's technology in the DIGIPASS portfolio," says Jan Valcke, President and COO of VASCO Data Security. "DIGIPASS 760 is a high-level transaction signing solution helping banks to mitigate attacks poised by malware or through social engineering specifically targeted at online banking. The solution excels in user-friendliness, as transaction data are automatically captured by the device and clearly displayed for verification. DIGIPASS 760 meets the highest demands for security in online and mobile banking."

DIGIPASS 760 will be showcased at Cartes on November 19, 20 and 21 in the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center (hall 4, booth nr J 027).
