Information for Small-to-Medium Sized Businesses

Small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) are the life-blood of the economy. Too often, security solutions are too complex and too expensive for a company with limited resources. WiKID has developed the WiKID Strong Authentication solution to be simple to install and maintain and far less expensive than traditional hardware tokens or any reader-based system - including USB tokens.

The WiKID Strong Authentication Server is an appliance. All administration is done via a Web interface. WiKID Systems can provide you with all the help and information you need to set-up the server in a matter of minutes.

Because employees tend to be such a key factor in the success of an SMB, it is imperative that they have access to what they need when they need it. For a consultant that bills out at $150 per hour, being locked out of the network due to a forgotten password is very expensive. Most SMBs don't have a 24 x 7 helpdesk either, so the consultant might be locked out for the weekend! SMBs also are more at risk of catastrophy in the case of a breach. Special care should be taken to avoid releasing client information.
