Secure W2 Alternative for Azure Customers - Keytos


What is the Best Secure W2 Alternative? Keytos

Are you looking for a Secure W2 alternative? You have come to the right place!. Keytos has been leading the identity and PKI space in Azure for the past few years by creating cloud native PKI, Smartcard and FIDO2 management solution, cloud based RADIUS, and Passwordless SSH solutions that help organizations scale and protect their cloud.


One of the main reasons many Azure customers (from Fortune 500 companies to small startups) choose Keytos and EZCA as their Azure Certificate Authority is because of our native integrations with Azure services, making it easy for you to create your PKIaaS in Azure and set it and forget it - EZCA will then take care of all the certificate management operations on its own. EZCA gained popularity in the IoT space due to its amazing guides that take you through the whole process of creating certificates for Azure IoT from IoT security best practices to step by step guides of using certificate authentication in Azure IoT hub, as well as our easy to use API's and NuGet package making IoT certificate Issuance and management as easy as possible.


Secure W2 Alternative for Cloud RADIUS

EZRADIUS shines as the best Cloud RADIUS service for Azure, this is not only due to the ease of use and quick setup but it is also due to the Entra ID and Intune Integration allowing you to create access policies based on Entra ID group membership or even Intune device compliance.


Secure W2 Alternative for Cloud PKI

While EZCA offers many automatic certificate issuance protocols such as SCEP (and is recommended as one of Microsoft's Third Microsoft's Third party Intune SCEP CAs) and ACME (Automated Certificate Management Environment), one of the most used features is our one-click Azure Key Vault certificate creation and management integration. This integration enables users to securely create and manage certificates following Azure best practices with an HSM (Hardware Security Module)-backed Azure Key Vault. This integration fully automates certificate issuance in Azure.


Intune and SCEP Integration

SCEP is the most popular way for IT teams across the world to issue certificates to their managed devices. EZCA's SCEP feature allows you to issue certificates to your managed devices in minutes!. EZCA's easy setup and management has made it one of the Microsoft-recommended Certificate Authorities for Intune and, with our latest self-service user certificate feature, even users with non-managed devices can easily get certificates.


Secure W2 Alternative for Smartcard & FIDO2 Issuance and Management

Keytos helps you secure your organization by also giving you the ability to source, manage, and ship your hardware keys and smartcards. EZCMS is the only credential management system that can onboard FIDO2 Keys to Entra ID's native FIDO2 solution, and our unique key attestation technology and government ID AI matching technology, makes it secure to onboard your remote workforce from anywhere in the world.


SSH Access Management with SSH Certificates

EZSSH revolutionized the SSH industry by being the first SSH access management tool that allows you to get just in time (JIT) access to your SSH endpoints with your Entra ID account without a high privilege agent or even a network connection to your endpoints, allowing you to implement all your access management policies such as RBAC and conditional access while utilizing cryptographic certificates that are native to the SSH protocol.


Connect Your PKI to Your SIEM With our Sentinel Integration

As a Microsoft Security partner, we simply could not create Azure based solutions without sending all alerts and logs to Azure Sentinel. All Keytos tools send all security logs to Azure Sentinel, allowing you to have a single pane of glass where your SOC team can monitor your infrastructure and detect anomalies.


Why Is Keytos the #1 Secure W2 Alternative?

Our team of experts constantly monitors and updates our systems to ensure that they meet the highest security standards.

Secure W2 Pricing vs Keytos Pricing

Secure W2 pricing is on a per-quote basis, meaning that based on what you will be purchasing and the size of your organization you will get a different price. At Keytos, we believe in transparent pricing, and we have created our pricing to be as transparent as possible. Below see a table of the Keytos Pricing. While Secure W2 does not have a public pricing page, we have found that their pricing is up to 10x more expensive than Keytos. How can Keytos be up to 10x cheaper than the competition while offering the same services? While legacy security providers packaged their on-premises tools and moved them to the cloud, Keytos created each of the tools from the ground up to be a cloud native tool, allowing us to reduce the price while adding more modern features.
