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.
