    Cryptography is already the de facto way of securing sensitive web traffic and it is now reaching across the entire enterprise as companies start to use industry-standard protocols such as SSL internally - even between servers only a few feet apart.

    1. Inexpensive tokens for strong authentication - Using anything stronger than passwords for authentication has been prohibitively expensive for anything other than premium users; but market volumes and competitive pressures are now commoditizing authentication tokens and driving functionality up and prices down.

    2. Ease of deployment for tokens - The arrival of USB tokens and the inclusion of card readers in laptops and keyboards is minimizing and sometimes removing deployment costs.
