Optionally, we can perform the installation for you and manage the server(s) and operating system(s).

What is the difference between UAT/Staging and In-house development licenses?

UAT and Staging are typically hosted online, either on the same server(s) as production, running under a different virtual host, or within the same network/cluster. In-house development licences run locally on a developer's machine and are used to extend or integrate with AuthStack and/or create custom login/profile pages.

What payment methods are accepted?

We accept payment by card and bank transfer. We accept Euro, Dollar and GBP. If you wish to pay in dollars or GBP then we will charge according to the current exchange rate. When paying by bank transfer your order will be manually verified and an invoice sent to you with all the details attached.

Can a licence be upgraded?

Yes, licenses can be upgraded at any time, contact us for more information.

Can we buy a perpetual licence?

AuthStack and MFAStack are security products, and as such, we continuously invest in security research, improvements, penetration testing and risk assessments to help us effectively manage the latest threats in web security. In much the same way your anti-virus must remain up to date to be effective, your IAM system must also remain up to date in order to be secure and maintain usability. Therefore to enable us to continue to support our customers and their mission critical infrastructure we have adopted a renewable licence model, to ensure we have resources in place to fulfil our commitments to this solution.
