When researching for a complete user authentication solution, it is important to consider a lot of different things. How easy will it be to integrate into my current environment? How much downtime can I expect to train my end users and tech support team? Do we have enough money in the current budget to roll out a new solution set?
These are all important questions to consider and paired with other questions can make or break your decision. By using a per-existing product it will allow you to focus your development efforts on the core functionality of your application.
A common issue is that there is always hope for more functionality than there is time to develop it, creating issues with attempting to develop and deploy these applications on your own. Developing your own solution requires a bit of trial and error, which costs time and money. You can eliminate these and other problems by using an integrated software solution that fits your authentication needs and has a proven track record.
Purchasing a solution that focuses on all of the possible authentication needs allowing your company to easily add on layers as needed with no price increase. This is not to say that you need to incorporate all of the functions at one time, but having the peace of mind that you can easily deploy a new layer without incurring a price increase.
