The customer wanted to have a comparison between CyberArk, Thycotic, and ARCON. They wanted to understand whether Thycotic could work for them or not and we wanted to partner with them if it met certain customer requirements. The customer had to decide for their project in the next financial year, starting sometime in August, September, whether to go with Thycotic or ARCON. They were using CyberArk but they were not very happy with it. So they looked at Thycotic and ARCON. They checked out Thycotic because they were looking at its cloud-based pricing and it was cheaper than ARCON.
