The 2021 Two-Factor Evaluation Guide Is Here!

When it is time to evaluate 2FA (two-factor authentication) providers there are some key questions to ask your vendors to determine which solution is best for your needs.

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is the simplest, most effective way to make sure users really are who they say they are. But, not every two-factor solution is the same. Some vendors only provide the bare minimum needed to meet compliance requirements – and some carry lots of hidden costs for deployment, operation and maintenance. Plus, many traditional solutions are clunky, error-prone and require extensive user training and support – costing your employees time and productivity. How can you tell which solution is the right one for you?

We have created this easy to follow Two-Factor Authentication Evaluation Guide – updated for 2021 – to help you navigate the pros and cons of choosing the right solution for your company. 

In this guide we evaluate:

  • Security - Does your solution reduce risks, and can it provide visibility into your environment?
  • Strategic Business Initiatives - Does your solution support cloud, mobile and BYOD initiatives? And can it fulfill compliance?
  • Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) - Does your solution provide more upfront value, or more hidden costs?
  • Resources Required - What kind of resources will it take to deploy and provision your users?

Learn which key questions to ask before deciding on a 2FA solution. 

In our refreshed Two-Factor Authentication Evaluation Guide you’ll also get:

  • An overview of the hidden costs of some two-factor solutions and how to determine your return on investment (ROI)
  • What to look for to ensure your solution can protect against the risk of a data breach
