Since 2006 LBBW/BW-Bank has provided over 200,000 end users by Digipass products
Vasco Data Security International has announced that the German financial institution Landesbank Baden-Wurttemberg has expanded its roll-out of Vasco’s Digipass client authentication products to its retail users.
The roll out of Digipass allowed Landesbank Baden-Wurttemberg (LBBW) to ban the use of transaction authentication number (TAN) lists. The bank will provide its customers with a list of transaction authentication numbers, which they use to sign transactions in the online banking application.
In early 2006, LBBW/BW-Bank announced the roll-out of Digipass 250. Since then, LBBW/BW-Bank has provided over 200,000 end users by these devices and also have introduced Vasco’s speaking Digipass 301 Comfort Voice for blind and visually impaired customers and Digipass 300 Comfort, a handy desk size model with keys and an oversized LCD-screen.
Stephan Wegmann, project manager of BW-Bank, said: Throughout our roll-out, the flexibility of the Digipass product range offered us a large variety of additional functionalities and applications. This allowed BW-Bank to completely ban TAN-lists to the bank’s archives. So 100% of BW-Bank’s online banking transactions are executed safely by strong authentication using introduced Vasco’s Digipass models.
