The result of our calculation was as follows: With 100 employees you will save about 14,000 € in the first year already. The break-even point for »return on invest« will be reached as early as after 88 days. With additional investment in »Password Discovery & Reset« after 109 days. Incidentally: The costs for system failures caused by security breaches and data theft aren’t even included in the calculations – as if there weren’t enough good arguments already. 

*10 seconds to enter a password, projected to 220 days ** Incl. software maintenance for 12 months / Price exl. legally valid VAT *** Our valuations assume an average salary of 3.200 € per month based on 220 work days per year and employee. This means 174.55 €/day, 21.82 €/h, 0.36 €/min and 0.06 €/sec
