VASCO Data Security Named Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant

Gartner says “by year-end 2016, about 30% of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for user authentication implementations

VASCO Data Security International has announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for User Authentication.

Gartner sees Cloud and Mobile technologies to have the most significant challenges, as well as opportunities, for user authentication vendors. The company predicts that “by year-end 2016, about 30% of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations – up from about 10% today.”

The company said that historically, VASCO has offered an on premise authentication solution to large banks and enterprises in all verticals, such as gaming, healthcare, education and e-government. These organizations use VASCO’s strong authentication to protect their end-users’ data from being compromised. They install a VASCO server platform and combine it with DIGIPASS authenticators; hardware, software or an app that can be downloaded on the end-user’s smart phone.

VASCO also offers cloud-based authentication with MYDIGIPASS.COM and DIGIPASS as a Service. MYDIGIPASS.COM is a two-factor authentication service for ASPs (Application Service Providers) that enables them to offer their customers a secure login to their web based applications. VASCO takes care of the end-users’ identities and access management, so the ASP can focus on its core activities.

VASCO continues to invest in innovative solutions and methods to meet the challenges of the global economy. CrontoSign, VASCO’s new visual cryptographic authentication method, is an example of its ability to continue to evolve, innovate and address market trends.

Jan Valcke, President and COO, VASCO Data Security, said, “This is the second year in a row that we have been recognized in the Leaders quadrant. We feel this is a confirmation of our profound vision, innovative services, and unique approach. We will continue to work hard to enhance our market position on a global level.”
