We offer both a purchased, on-premises deployment model and a leased, cloud-hosted and managed service,&rdquol says Gideon Shoham, CEO. “Regardless of the delivery model, by using Identity Express we are able to compress deployment time, minimize risk and deliver the lowest TCO while encapsulating best-practices policies and processes.”
