The Alfa+Ariss plugin works much better now IMO.

You can set it up to auto-authenticate without prompting for a username 
and password each time, so it's transparent.

You can also set it up to prompt you for credentials if you wish to do 

The only thing we haven't been able to get working is the verification 
of our server certificates, but that's waiting on me sending some 
information to the SecureW2 developers so they can look at the problem.

Anyway... it seems to work pretty well for many of our users that don't 
like AEGIS, or for whom AEGIS doesn't work.

P.S. I'm glad you found our documentation useful!
