Looking to build a flexible security infrastructure that is easily accessible by customers and employees from anywhere and at any time? The DIGIPASS 250 opens the door. The small and lightweight DIGIPASS 250 offers the same secure remote access and authentication features of the DIGIPASS 300 in a more streamlined design. It's the ideal password-protected personal identification device for banks and organisations needing an effective and cost-efficient, high-volume solution. In addition, the DIGIPASS 250 enables digital signatures for transactions.

Strong Two-Factor Authentication

DIGIPASS 250 is based on strong two-factor authentication. To gain access to applications and services you must:

  1. remember a Personal Identification Number (PIN), and
  2. possess a hand-held DIGIPASS 250.

The PIN code is entered into DIGIPASS 250 which then calculates a dynamic password. This one-time password enables authorised access into the network.

Intuitive User Interface and Advanced Design

Tough, shock-resistant materials and an expected battery life of 5 years make the DIGIPASS 250 a reliable part of any total enterprise security solution. Its ergonomic keypad and simple graphic interface are so easy to use, no technical training or User's Guide is needed. Universally recognisable display icons walk you through simple steps that always provide an option for going back or restarting from the beginning.

Maximum Flexibility

DIGIPASS 250 can be customized to your specific applications. Security parameters such as PIN length, number of PIN trials, type of cryptographic algorithm, lengths of challenge and response, are all programmable. Result: you get an optimum balance of user-friendliness, costefficiency and security.

Banking with DIGIPASS

VASCO's DIGIPASS 250 technology is used successfully in a wide array of application environments. For example, VASCO® helps more than 170 financial customers around the world cost-effectively face the challenge of online banking and trading without compromising existing infrastructures. Easy-to-use DIGIPASS 250 solutions provide highly secure and totally reliable e-banking services via phone, fax, and PC/Internet. In the process, these institutions have increased their existing customers' loyalty while offering potential new customers the benefit of heightened security.

Low Cost Puts it at the Top of its Class

In the academic world, e-transactions usually concern an exchange of information, not money. Nevertheless, the importance of security must not be diminished. VASCO's DIGIPASS 250 can provide educational institutions with highly secure solutions for guarding against breaches of confidentiality and unauthorised access to data. Further, VASCO's technology wins high marks for offering high functionallity and flexibility at a low total cost.

Making Internet Transactions More Safe

DIGIPASS 250 technology enhances the security of your web-based services. Whether it is using DIGIPASS 250 dynamic passwords to log on to a restricted web site or create digital signatures to sign a financial transaction, you have greater control over who is trying to perform what activity.
