Previous Solutions

In some cases other solution where the cost is a driving factor.

Initial Setup

It's straightforward. Appliance is almost like plug & Play.

Implementation Team

We did self implementation.


Security is always like insurance. It ensures against future threats, so it's tough to estimate the ROI, until unless some one broke the system without two-factor authentication in the past.

Other Solutions Considered

Yes. There are other products, but can not provide as per NDA.

Other Advice

If cost is not a big concern, go ahead.
