Information for the Fortune 500

The recent years have produced a 'perfect storm' of a bad economy combined with an increased demand for security. Unfortunately, not many security projects can save an enterprise hard cash dollars. Most are just insurance against potential attacks. WiKID is unique in that deploying WiKID Strong Authentication with it's built-in password reset mechanism and self-service set up can simultaneously reduce costly ($15-30) and frequent (4-5 times per year per employee) helpdesk calls while increasing security!

Most large corporations are encouraging employees to work at home some part of the week. Some are rolling out SSL-based VPNs to provide access to key information without having to deploy or maintain client software. Most Fortune 500 companies have opened their applications and their networks to vendors, consultants, customers and other third parties. All these programs are great for efficiency and morale, but tough for the CSO. How can you easily implement two factor authentication across an enterprise? Across multiple enterprises? How can you strongly authenticate using an SSL-based VPN without killing your potential ROI?
