Authy vs Castle: What are the differences?

Developers describe Authy as "The easiest way to add Two-Factor Authentication to any website or app". We make the best rated Two-Factor Authentication smartphone app for consumers, a Rest API for developers and a strong authentication platform for the enterprise. On the other hand, Castle is detailed as "Track security events or any unstructured data from your web backend or mobile app, and Castle will look for anomalies". Castle looks for suspicious login patterns without bothering the legitimate user nor the site administrator. The fully-automated anti-hijack engine identifies potential account compromises based on where the user logs in from and how they navigate the site.

Authy and Castle can be categorized as "Security" tools.

Some of the features offered by Authy are:
