Easy to Deploy

The integration of DIGIPASS GO 8 into an existing network or application is simple and swift. Static passwords or existing TAN lists (pre-printed lists of TransAction Numbers) can instantly be replaced with the more secure DIGIPASS GO 8 dynamic password. Deploying the device will be easier since the postal issuance of DIGIPASS GO 8 complies with standard postal regulation thanks to its slim design.

Easy to Use

With a single push on the button, DIGIPASS GO 8 displays a dynamic one-time password (OTP) each time a user wants to remotely log onto an application, website or network. The authenticator is very easy to use, the user enters this OTP in the login screen of the application, resulting in high user acceptance.

An additional server password or PIN, as a second authentication factor, can also be applied to eliminate unauthorized use if the device is lost or stolen. The portable DIGIPASS GO 8 can be carried on a key ring, worn around the neck or simply placed in a pocket or purse.
