Our UI is completely templatable so you can add your own styles and 
structures to any page (including the admin console).

You lose a lot of functionality not using our UI.  The most important 
one being SSO.  You also lose forgot password/reset credentials, 
required actions (update password, verify email, configure OTP, etc.), 
user account mgmt, registration, etc...

Our client adapters and have seemless integration with servlet security.
