Are you the same or a different company now?

We are the same company but with a new name and visual identity. That means you will continue to receive the same great products, services, and support as before. This also means that all of your existing contracts, agreements and proposals with VASCO are still valid and applicable with OneSpan.

Do we need to redo/resign any paperwork with OneSpan?

No, you do not. Since we are the same company, your existing contracts, agreements and proposals are all valid and applicable with OneSpan. Going forward, new documents that you will sign with us will transition to our new OneSpan name.

Have your other products changed?

Our software and hardware solutions have the same powerful features and functionality. However, we changed the names of our software solutions to reflect our new name. The new names align with common market terms, and make it easier to understand what our software products do. The names of our hardware products have not changed.

DeviceLock® DLP Suite 8.3 just updated!

DeviceLock, Inc., a leading developer of data leakage prevention (DLP) solutions, today announced the update of DeviceLock DLP Suite 8.3.

What’s New in DeviceLock 8.3.72878 (versus 8.3.72562):

  • NetworkLock: Added new protocol: “Web Search”. The “Web Search” control supports blocking, allowing, auditing, alerting, shadowing, and content analysis of search requests on supported services. The supported services are: Google, Yandex, Bing, Baidu, Yahoo, Mail.Ru, Ask.com, AOL Search, Rambler, Wolfram Alpha, DuckDuckGo, WebCrawler, Search.com, Wayback Machine, Dogpile, StartPage, Excite, NAVER, and Web.de.
  • NetworkLock: Enhanced Gmail and Rambler Web Mail protocol controls.
  • ContentLock / Search Server / Discovery: Added support for text extraction from Hancom Office files format (.hwp).
  • DeviceLock: Added integration with Rutoken Disk encrypted removable flash drives to the Encryption Detection list. DeviceLock detects Rutoken Disk drives and applies special “encrypted” Removable device type permissions to their encrypted (or “hidden”) partitions.
  • DeviceLock: A new variable “%REASON%” has been added to the optional “Content-Aware Blocked Read” and “Content-Aware Blocked Write” user pop up messages. This variable, when included in the custom message, specifies the name of Content-Aware Rule which was triggered and blocked the data access or transfer.
  • DeviceLock: All dynamic lists in DeviceLock Enterprise Server and DeviceLock Discovery Server now support selection of several AD/LDAP paths simultaneously.
  • DeviceLock: Optimized disk space usage by SQL Server when storing DeviceLock Enterprise Server’s database with digital fingerprints.
  • DeviceLock: Fixed issue that caused BitLocker To Go encryption integration malfunction on latest Windows 10 versions.
  • DeviceLock: Improved agent’s tamper protection function on latest Windows 10 versions that is activated using the DeviceLock Administrators function when the Enable Default Security setting is unchecked.

    DeviceLock DLP Suite components are priced on a modular basis. DeviceLock, a leading port and peripheral device access control component, can be purchased independently. As all components are included in any Suite’s installation, customers interested in the ContentLock and NetworkLock add-on components can deploy their DLP functionality incrementally by simply turning on additional capabilities as their security requirements demand and budgets allow.

Volkswagen Foundation invests in streamlined network

Category : News

The Volkswagen Foundation is investing in macmon Network Access Control (NAC)to completely prepare its network for current and future security demands. At the same time, intelligent automation is relieving the load on IT employees.

Old systems too rigid and complicated

With just over 200 end devices (printers, desktop PCs and laptops) for 105 employees, the Volkswagen Foundation is a relatively small organisation. But as an important sponsor of training, science and technology for research and education, it bears a significant social and financial responsibility – which is why it requires the best possible protection against unauthorised access.

The Foundation had already implemented a Network Access Control solution from a US provider to protect its network access, the first and most important line of defence in data protection. However, this solution tied the IT team to its provider to a certain extent, making it difficult to update the infrastructure and flexibly adapt it to new requirements. Furthermore, support inquiries were a long and complicated process, as no local service team was available within Germany for direct contact. Another problem posed by the old solution was the time-consuming operation and high level of complexity, as it was much too cluttered for the relatively simple infrastructure. This meant that even small changes required great effort and the management of the solution alone took up a significant part of the workday for the two in-house network administrators.

Simple. Secure. In just four weeks.

Changing the infrastructure over from VDX to ICX switches made it possible for the Volkswagen Foundation to throw off the shackles of the previous NAC solution. This is due to the fact that ICX switches, in addition to most other switches, are compatible with the completely manufacturer-independent macmon NAC solution, which made it possible to easily change to the far more convenient German solution. As the solution of the Berlin-based technology leader functions independently of hardware, the Volkswagen Foundation IT team was able to freely build its environment from best-ofbreed hardware and software to implement the level of protection that was just right for the organisation. In addition to the added functional values, the fact that macmon is completely developed in Germany and therefore poses no risks of hidden backdoors, which third parties could use to evade the security measures unnoticed, was an important factor. Only four weeks passed between making the decision in favour of the macmon NAC version 5.3.0 and the complete replacement of the old solution. Following implementation, macmon was operated in reading mode alongside the old solution. In addition to the NAC basic module, the VLAN Manager module and the Graphical Topology were deployed. During this first test phase, employees were able to familiarise themselves with the functions and the easy operation of the macmon solution. The IT team quickly realised that macmon is nowhere near as complicated as the old solution and is perfectly tailored to the requirements of the Volkswagen Foundation. The topological representation offers a complete overview and a large number of intuitive management options for all network devices in the network. The dynamic VLAN Manager won the IT team over with its high degree of automation and predefined set of rules, meaning that only a single additional rule had to be written. Other network switches were connected step by step during the changeover until macmon was able to fully replace the old solution after only four weeks. Thanks to the preceding reading and learning phase, all device were already classified in macmon, meaning it was nearly as easy as flipping a switch to transfer the new NAC solution into production mode.

All-round protection with a real future

Access to the network is now granted on the basis of different criteria, such as the MAC address, username/ password or certificate. The certificate is the highest level of authentication. Since access to the network is granted by the switch only after confirmation has been provided by the RADIUS server, there are no unused or non-secure ports – as recommended by the BSI*. The ease of use of the solution makes it very quick to put into operation and also allows for easy switching to combined operation with and without 802.1X if required. With macmon, the Volkswagen Foundation has transformed its Network Access Control from an irksome, awkward and Sisyphean task that prevented valuable IT resources from performing productive work into a central, future-proof and convenient security authority in the network.
