Vasco rebrands as OneSpan, acquires Dealflo
Vasco, now known as OneSpan, has narrowed its focus to become an anti-fraud platform. OneSpan will trade on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol OSPN. It is expected to begin trading on Monday, 4 June 2018.
OneSpan offers the Trusted Identity (TID) platform, an API-based solution that aims to reduce fraud associated with onboarding and transactions while offering an enhanced experience for the end user. TID’s new Intelligent Adaptive Authentication reviews and scores data pulled from user behaviour, devices, and transactions to offer a real-time view of user security without interfering with the user experience.
“The launch of our Trusted Identity platform provides a single foundation that spans the needs of our customers today and into the future while our name change underscores a generational evolution in our strategy,” explains OneSpan CEO Scott Clements.
“We listened closely to the challenges our customers are facing and identified a significant gap between customer needs and solutions available in the market. OneSpan is addressing this gap by delivering a much needed and innovative approach to reducing the billions of dollars banks are losing annually to fraud.”
Bolstering this transition is OneSpan’s acquisition of Dealflo for $54.5 million (£41 million). Founded in 2009 and headquartered in the UK, Dealflo offers configurable onboarding solutions to financial services clients. The company has partnerships with Equifax, TransUnion’s iovation, Mitek, and Vasco’s eSignLive (now OneSpan Sign).
“This acquisition will enable us to grow our subscription revenue and Dealflo’s technology will be a major differentiator for our eSignLive solution,” said Clements. “In addition, Dealflo’s identity verification capabilities will allow us to accelerate the launch of our TID platform based onboarding, identity and anti-fraud solutions.”
Dealflo has operations across North America and EMEA, and is headquartered in London. The Dealflo team will join OpenSpan, working to bring Dealflo’s solutions into new geographic markets.
Among OneSpan’s offerings is the OneSpan Sign Digital Lending Solution, which leverages the blockchain and e-signature capabilities to offer a compliant, digital lending solution.
Last month, OneSpan teamed up with lendtech firm nCino to offer nCino clients access to an electronic signature solution.
