As security demands and IT environments become more demanding and complex, M4S – in blue – holds costs consistent, while typical competitors – in red – are forced to expand and upgrade their levels of enterprise integration. The result: rising costs in three key areas.

Single vs. Multi-Source
M4S’s multi-featured Identity Assurance and Access Management solution addresses in a single solution what typically would require multiple solutions from several security vendors. For example, your company might start with another vendor’s Single Sign On (SSO) solution, then later decide to add enhanced user authentication. But the SSO provider wouldn’t have the answer, and you’d be forced to bring in a different vendor. The more vendors you have to add over time, the more complex and expensive to manage your security infrastructure will become. By contrast, M4S bundles all functionality into its solution, so adding a new security feature like SSO, VDI, or secure storage is as simple as turning the feature on.
Simple Implementation and Migration
M4S interfaces with your existing security architecture, and requires no disruption to your security schemas or enterprise applications. Implementation typically takes four hours or less, compared to days or weeks with conventional authentication systems, and migration to new IT models, such as cloud computing, require no special changes or add-ons to M4S.
Low Maintenance Costs
M4S simplifies maintenance and administration because it works as a peer to the corporate IT infrastructure and avoids the complexities of integrating with enterprise applications and security schemas. Also, M4S adds a cost advantage over conventional authentication systems by eliminating the need for users to manage their access credentials, and by reducing the costs associated with password resets and Help Desk intervention.
