People will look for ACE SecurID because of the 2-Factor Authentication
it offers, but 2-factor authentication can be achieved with the
OPIE(One-time Password In Everything) that comes as part of the
operating system in freebsd and openbsd, also you have PAM, so
you may want to save the money with a little PAM+LDAP research.
