Oakbrook Terrace-based Sony Bank Incorporated said it has implemented Vasco Data Security International's Digipass and Vacman authentication technology to enhance the security level of its Internet banking service.
Sony Bank is an affiliate of Sony Financial Holdings, that comprises Sony Life Insurance, Sony Assurance and other group companies. Sony Bank started business in 2001 as an Internet bank for individuals. In accordance with its corporate philosophy, the bank provides financial products and services that satisfy customers by embracing their individual views.
Sony Bank made the decision to implement Vasco's high-level security technology. Its customers can use Digipass GO 7, a device that generates one-time passwords, according to Vasco Data Security. Passwords only last for a limited time period and become invalid after a short period of time. In the back-end, Vasco's Vacman authentication platform is capable of processing the large volumes of end-users, typical for a banking environment. Vasco's flexible and strong security solutions are tailored to the bank's needs and improve the quality of the online services and thus the customers' confidence and peace of mind.
"We are very proud that Sony Bank chose Vasco's Digipass technology. We believe that Vasco's strong security solution is a perfect fit for Sony Bank's new IT technology and the bank's future security needs," says Jan Valcke, President and COO at Vasco Data Security.
Swiss company Vasco, with U.S. operations based in Oakbrook Terrace, is a supplier of strong authentication and e-signature solutions and services specializing in Internet security applications and transactions.
