VASCO Data Security International, Inc., an IT security company, designs, develops and markets security and business enablement solutions that secure and manage access to digital assets, and protect and facilitate transactions online, through mobile devices, and in-person. The company provides two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) and electronic signature solutions to financial institutions. The company’s solutions secure access to data, assets, and applications for global enterprises; provide tools for application developers to integrate security functions into their Web-based and mobile applications; and facilitate digital transactions involving the signing, sending and managing of documents. The company’s core technology, 2FA, strengthens the process of verifying the identity of users by means of a combination of two different components. These components might consist of something that the user knows, such as a username, and another item that the user possesses, such as a VASCO hardware or software authenticator that generates a one-time password (OTP). 2FA is a type of multi-factor authentication. The company’s security solutions include both open standards-based and proprietary solutions, some of which are patented products and services used for authentication, electronically signing transactions and documents, and identity management in business-to-business (B2B), business-to-employee (B2E), and business-to-consumer (B2C) environments. The company’s target markets include, but are not limited to, applications where individuals access assets and information, and conduct transactions that have value. In November 2015, the company acquired Silanis Technology Inc., a major provider of electronic signature (e-signature) and digital transaction solutions used to sign, send, and manage documents. Products and Services Authentication and anti-fraud solutions, the company’s primary product offerings, provide a means of authenticating users to networks and to Web-based and mobile applications. The company’s authentication products calculate dynamic passwords, also known as OTP, which authenticate users logging onto networks or other applications. In addition, its products could be used to enable electronic signatures to protect electronic transactions and the integrity of the contents of such transactions. The company’s primary product and service lines include Host System products, which are typically a component of an organization’s IT infrastructure; and Client Authenticators, which are devices used by end users for authentication. Host System Products VACMAN Controller: Core host system software authentication platform, combining all technologies on one platform. IDENTIKEY Authentication Server: Software that adds full server functionality to the VACMAN core authentication platform. Cloud Services: Authentication and digital signature software services for Web and mobile application developers run on the company’s servers. This includes the company’s DIGIPASS as a Service (DPaaS) solution for cloud-based authentication services primarily for enterprise customers and its MYDIGIPASS (MDP) solution for end user authentication in the cloud. Client Authenticator Products DIGIPASS Hardware Authenticators: A family of multi-application hardware authenticators in various form factors and feature sets to meet the security needs of clients across multiple vertical markets. The hardware form factors include one-button, e-signature, card reader, PKI, and Bluetooth-enabled devices. DIGIPASS Software Authenticators: These are authenticators that run on existing non-VASCO devices, such as PCs, mobile phones, tablets, etc. Built around the company’s cornerstone DIGIPASS API (application programming interface), software authenticators include DIGIPASS for Apps (a library of security APIs for mobile applications) and DIGIPASS for Mobile (a security application for mobile devices). The company offers additional product and service lines, including three categories of solutions, such as Developer Tools, which are typically used by organizations developing mobile applications; Risk Anal
