It offers secure and seamless access to corporate resources and applications of all kinds, from SSL VPNs to cloud-based apps, supports VASCO’s entire range of authentication and signature solutions, and simplifies authentication management for administrators and users alike.

Firewalls and VPNs
Web-based Portals/Outlook Web Access
Microsoft Office 365
Retail and corporate banking applications
Medical and EHR applications, such as Epic Hyperspace
VASCO IAS can be linked to any web-based application via a SOAP API, allowing for easy server modifications (an SDK is available on demand to allow smooth integration of this functionality), or, when paired with IDENTIKEY Federation Server, VASCO IAS delivers seamless SSO (Single Sign On) for Web applications via SAML.

VASCO IAS delivers extensive support of all VASCO authentication technologies:
Multi-Factor Authentication with OTP
CrontoSign & Bluetooth technologies
DIGIPASS for Mobile
DIGIPASS for Web (zero footprint)
OOB (Out-of-Band) OTP Delivery (SMS, E-mail, etc.)
Centralized Installation and Management
IAS delivers all the tools required for simple and centralized installation and management. An intuitive Installation Wizard will guide you through the setup process from start to finish. The single web-based administration interface (accessible through any browser, from anywhere on the network), allows for simplified remote administration and management. And a Helpdesk Dashboard enables your staff to deliver faster and more insightful support for users. Through a centralized view, administrators can utilize the Helpdesk Dashboard to easily access user information (status, history, etc.) and DIGIPASS details, as well as quickly create reports on demand.
VASCO IAS can support anywhere from a handful of users up to hundreds of thousands of users, without impacting the functionality and operability of your mission-critical applications. It can run on multiple platforms, includes provisioning support for large deployments, and delivers redundancy, automatic replication, and server failover. Further, IAS can be easily expanded to additional users without any changes to your existing IT infrastructure - adding more users and/or applications is as simple as adding a license.
VASCO IAS provides all the tools administrators need to facilitate a smooth rollout, or migration from existing systems, including built-in, automated deployment functionality that reduces support and help desk requirements. IAS runs seamlessly on any existing infrastructure and does not require dedicated servers or appliances. Existing databases do not need to be replaced, as the data storage can be integrated in Active Directory or into a variety of ODBC-compliant databases.
A range of software modules is available that allow direct integration into the authentication process of 3rd party systems, such as Juniper SBR (remote access), Microsoft ADFS (Office365 and other cloud applications) and EPIC Hyperspace (EPCS in healthcare), Citrix Storefront (Virtual environments), etc.
IAS is shipped with a user-friendly self-management website through which endusers can manage part of their account and DIGIPASS by themselves. This allows them to self-assign and activate hardware and software DIGIPASS, update PIN and static password, self-unlock their account, test the login process, and various other functions in a very easy way.
