VASCO’s Mobile Authentication Solution with Native App Integration

MOBYLLA first customer to integrate native authentication into its mCloud services

VASCO Data Security International, Inc., offers a native authentication integration solution for MYDIGIPASS.COM that allows application developers to protect their end users' online identity.

In November 2013, VASCO launched DIGIPASS for Application Perimeter Protection SDK (DIGIPASS for APPS), a software development kit providing application developers with a cross-platform programming environment to secure their (mobile) applications. The solution offers a comprehensive set of features giving application developers all necessary building blocks to secure their application at every level. In line with this mobile strategy, VASCO today launches its native authentication integration solution for MYDIGIPASS.COM, its in-the-cloud authentication platform.

Previously, mobile app users needed to switch between the mobile application itself and a separate authentication app, in order to securely log on to the mobile app of their choice. This involved a cumbersome copy-paste process where users needed to open the authentication app, generate a strong password and consequently copy-paste this password into the mobile app to which they wanted to log on securely.

The native authentication integration solution now allows users to securely log on from a mobile app by clicking the 'MYDIGIPASS.COM Secure Connect' button. Users are automatically redirected to the MYDIGIPASS.COM mobile application where they enter their PIN code. Once this is validated by the MYDIGIPASS.COM app, the user is automatically switched back to the mobile app and gets instant access to the secured content of his mobile app.

The authentication process is entirely done in the back-end, invisible for the end user. MYDIGIPASS.COM will validate the user's PIN and then generates a one-time password (OTP). This OTP is automatically inserted in the MYDIGIPASS.COM app, verified by the server and access to the application is granted. The solution is very straightforward and convenient for the end-user as the authentication process is seamlessly integrated into the mobile app itself.

The first customer to integrate this new solution was MOBYLLA, a Belgian company that offers enterprise mobile solutions and services to different sectors such as financial services, telecommunications, manufacturing, government, healthcare and many others. MOBYLLA has integrated the solution into its mCloud services, a platform that provides secure end-to-end access to company resources through mobile applications. The company was looking to implement a strong authentication solution that didn't require an additional authenticator, either software or hardware. Thanks to the native authentication integration, users can securely log on to the mCloud app, without needing additional authenticators or burdensome copy-paste procedures.

"Mobile devices are omnipresent in today's enterprise ecosystem," says Payam Moini Tabatabai, Founder & CEO of MOBYLLA. "However, regulations may differ from country to country. We need solutions that are compliant with national regulations in different countries. Additionally, we wanted to implement a security solution that doesn't compromise user-friendliness which is essential for any mobile platform. Users will be reluctant to follow complicated processes on any mobile platform.  VASCO's MYDIGIPASS.COM native authentication solution proved to be the ultimate solution. We are able to offer our customers the best authentication solution combining high security and an unmatched user convenience."

"We are very excited to have MOBYLLA as our first customer to integrate our new MYDIGIPASS.COM native authentication integration solution," says Jan Valcke, President and COO of VASCO Data Security. "The implementation of the native authentication solution into mCloud not only demonstrates VASCO's innovative character but also its commitment to provide highly secure, transparent and user convenient solutions that respond to today's mobile trends and needs."
