Lower Cost of Operation
Continually evolving security threats require companies to adopt a layered approach to fraud prevention, resulting in a high cost of integration, ongoing administration, provisioning, and employee support.
Instead of provisioning hardware or maintaining software, companies decrease security threats by leveraging an identity & access management technology that is already part of every employee’s life — the telephone.
