With its unique form factor, DIGIPASS Nano will offer banks and corporations new perspectives in using mobile devices as authentication means, providing them with a new channel to interact with their customers. Mobile users will be able to perform secure transactions, access business-critical data or transfer money anywhere at any given time.

Furthermore, DIGIPASS Nano can be deployed by banks and corporations to fit virtually every mobile device worldwide that supports SIM or USIM technology.
