With MAS, workers log in using CRYPTOCard’s two-factor authentication tokens. The token generates a password for login that can be used just once; a new one-time password is generated for every login. The token, and hence the login process, is further protected by a secret PIN, known only to the token owner. If ever lost or stolen, the token is useless as the PIN is required to gain access.

In partnership with global channel partners, organizations simply purchase hardware or software tokens, and then pay a monthly MAS subscription fee based on the number of users. Managed service plan "starter packs" for two users are $786 for keychain tokens and $668 for software tokens. Both options include the annual managed service fee of $648. 25 user starter pack pricing is $5,025 and $3,550 for keychain and software token plans respectively, which include the $3,300 annual managed service fee.
