OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., and ZURICH, May 28 2013 /PRNewswire/ --VASCO Data
Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; www.vasco.com), a leading software
security company specializing in authentication products, announces that the
more than 60,000 customers of the Condoom-Anoniem e-shop
(www.condoom-anoniem.nl) can use the MYDIGIPASS.COM platform to execute their
purchases in a convenient, anonymous and safe way.
Since 2004, Condoom-Anoniem offers a varied assortment of condoms online. The
company has grown into the biggest online shop with this product range in the
Netherlands and several times won a prestigious Dutch online shop award.
Condoom-Anoniem also sells from an educational point of view: it gives clear
and objective information and does not exclude audiences. The company actively
cooperates with governmental and non-governmental health organizations and
delivers to pharmacies and other health institutions. Condoom-Anoniem plans to
expand its business abroad in the near future.
Richard Spooren, founder and director of the company, explains: "To reach out
to as many people as possible, we strive to make the online shop accessible
for everyone. Therefore, we guarantee the customer's anonymity and offer a
user-friendly purchasing process with fewer steps. With MYDIGIPASS.COM, we do
not only improve user convenience, but also lift online security to a higher
MYDIGIPASS.COM ensures secure access to the web store with strong two-factor
authentication. Customers can register themselves for free on
www.MYDIGIPASS.com and download the DIGIPASS for Mobile app. With this app,
customers generate a dynamic password on their mobile device enabling them to
log on securely. Dynamic passwords can only be used once in a limited period
Additionally, MYDIGIPASS.COM offers the possibility to use QR codes to log on,
hence increasing user convenience. By scanning the QR code, the customer gets
safe access to the online shop through his MYDIGIPASS.COM account.
To stimulate user convenience and to guarantee anonymity, the buyer does not
need to create an account on Condoom-Anoniem.nl. A receipt address to deliver
the package suffices to place an order. Passwords are never stored by the
Condoom-Anoniem website. However, consumers can store their passwords and
personal details on MYDIGIPASS.COM. He consequently avoids having to fill out
his contact details over and over again. When creating online accounts the
consumer is able to choose which personal details he wants to share with which
online shops and sites.
For the customer, the advantage is clear. However, Condoom-Anoniem sees the
upsides as well: "The fewer steps a customer must go through to make a
purchase, the higher the conversion rate," says Spooren. "By using
MYDIGIPASS.COM, the purchasing process improves significantly."
The implementation of MYDIGIPASS.COM on Condoom-Anoniem.nl went smoothly.
Plugins for commonly used platforms, such as Drupal, Wordpress and Magento,
ensure that other e-shops can easily sign up to offer their customers the same
level of security and user convenience.
"This cooperation is an important step in building the online MYDIGIPASS.COM
community," says Ken Hunt, Founder, Chairman and CEO of VASCO Data Security.
"For Condoom-Anoniem, this cooperation is also of huge importance. This web
shop is constantly seeking ways to guarantee user convenience and anonymity
while at the same time increasing security. With the implementation of
MYDIGIPASS.COM, the online shop adds an extra layer of security ensuring its
customers a purchase without security issues."
