Easy to use, easy to deploy

Start with an easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy on-premises MFA solution, then, if and when it makes sense, migrate to the cloud with Identity as a Service. Seamless integration between the two ensures a frictionless experience while benefitting from three extra authentication options: device fingerprint, mobile push, and grid cards.
