WordPress gets Mydigipass.

Vasco has announced that its Mydigipass authentication system has been incorporated into the WordPress platform.

Launched earlier this year, Mydigipass is a token that allows a user to login to multiple web applications via one single sign-in, with the user logging into the web portal either directly on the Mydigipass website, or via a button on an approved website via the Mydigipass button, entering a user name, password and one-time password (OTP) generated by the token.

The addition of the service by WordPress will enable bloggers to benefit from the added security the authentication service offers and also protect access to their sites and identify visitors, Vasco said.

Jan Valcke, president and COO of Vasco, said: “We are very proud to present WordPress as one of the latest integrators of Mydigipass. WordPress gives its users the ability to secure their blogs with strong authentication.”
