In this whitepaper, you will learn:

  • Security Impact - One of the essential factors to consider is whether the two-factor authentication solution can reduce security risks and provide visibility into your environment. A good solution should protect your data and provide secure access to your network and applications.
  • Strategic Business Initiatives - A suitable two-factor authentication solution should be compatible with cloud, mobile, and bring your own device (BYOD) initiatives. It should also fulfill compliance requirements and provide additional benefits such as improved user experience.
  • Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) - Understanding the total cost of ownership of the solution is crucial to make an informed decision. This includes assessing the upfront costs as well as any potential hidden costs such as deployment, operation, and maintenance.
  • Resources Required - It is essential to evaluate whether your existing staff can deploy and maintain the two-factor authentication solution or if additional personnel or contractors will be required.
