Cascades Secures Its Remote Network With VASCO’s Two-Factor Authentication

VASCO Data Security Inc., a leading
software security company specializing in authentication products,
announces today that Cascades – a recycling and paper packaging company –
secures its remote network with VASCO’s two-factor authentication.

Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue
products composed mainly of recycled fibres. In order to allow employees
to access corporate resources and applications from remote offices or
home, Cascades implemented a SSL VPN solution, secured by VASCO’s
DIGIPASS authentication solution.

Secure Links, a leading services orientated company with
experienced professionals focusing on perimeter network security and
secure remote access solutions, proposed VASCO’s solutions to Cascades.
The company also provided the necessary equipment so that an initial
pilot could be set up. After evaluating the pilot project, Cascades
opted for VASCO’s DIGIPASS solution in combination with its software
suite VACMAN.

Cascades’s IT support personnel, sales force, management and
office workers were all equipped with DIGIPASS GO 6, a one-button
authentication device , allowing them to remotely log on to
applications, websites and the corporate network. DIGIPASS GO 6
generates one-time passwords which have a limited validity. The
technology replaces a similar but costly solution, effectively combating
Internet fraud.

"We are very happy to work with VASCO," says Denis Robitaille,
Director IT Technical Service at Cascades. "We already had an
authentication solution in place but decided to replace it with VASCO’s
DIGIPASS devices and VACMAN software suite mainly because of the low
total cost of ownership. Other factors taken into account were the
extended life length of the DIGIPASS and the ease of use of the
administration console. Moreover, we were pleasantly surprised that the
implementation went so quickly and smooth. VASCO’s support department
helped us during all the migration steps."

"Cascades is a nice addition to our customer portfolio," says
Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security. "It demonstrates
the need for strong authentication in work environments. With increasing
numbers of remote users needing to access client data, confidential
documents, account records and other sensitive information, the issue of
security has become a top priority for the business community. The use
of authentication for remote access to corporate networks and
applications improves data security and allows remote offices and
traveling workforce to access their corporate resources and applications
from anywhere."
