Users will be able to login to multiple web applications using a two-factor authentication (2FA) token.
Announced today by Vasco, Mydigipass is a token that allows a user to login to multiple web applications via one single sign-in. The user logs in to the web portal either directly on the Mydigipass website or via a button on an approved website via the Mydigipass button, entering a user name, password and one-time password (OTP) generated by the token.
This then opens a session for 20 minutes where the user will be authenticated across applications that use the Mydigipass authentication. Soft solutions are also offered for mobile devices, tablets and laptops.
The company said that this can secure all of a user's online accounts with one device, it offers strong user authentication to thousands of web applications and will offer convenience by simplifying the amount of passwords remembered by an end-user.
Jan Valcke, president and COO of Vasco, said that the average user needs to remember eight logins a day with four different devices into 28 accounts, using six different passwords. “This is not secure for different websites, as you do not remember what the password was used for which website,” he said.
“So the user is asking for convenience with one password and this is what the consumer and business user was asking for. We needed to be omnipresent and easy to integrate. Users don't want to login over and over and want to do it once, and we have combined the challenge by having it in one device.”
Also offered is a QR code scanner for users to login via a mobile device, with the app offered for free download via the mobile app stores.
