Myth 5: Dispelling The Myths around Software Tokens

1 0 422

Software tokens cost as much as hardware tokens.  Myth shattered!


Here are three reasons why:


  • Firstly, acquisition costs are lower.  The SecurID app itself is actually free and readily available on marketplaces.  What you pay for is the token record.
  • Secondly, deployment costs are minimal.  You don't have to physically snail mail a token.  Plus, you can use self-service and workflow automation to provision tokens.
  • Thirdly, ongoing costs can also be lower.  How is this possible?  Well, you don't lose your token.  Software tokens can be revoked and re-issued to a new user when an employee leaves a company, meaning lower shipping, new token and token record costs.
