FortiAuthenticator Review
It keeps track of users and their IPs no matter where they are in the network


What is our primary use case?

We implement FortiAuthenticator in situations where there are multiple Active Directory domains. Other use cases include:

  • When we need to use FortiClient to keep track of users as they move around different locations where normal FSSO would have issues
  • When we need to use one FortiToken for multiple Fortigates
  • When we want to use it as a domain controller.

The FortiAuthenticator can do many things.

How has it helped my organization?

It keeps track of users and their IPs no matter where they are in the network. When users roam, we don't have to worry about not mapping them to an IP.

What is most valuable?

Valuable features include the robust SSO features, when you have more complicated authentication within an organization. We can mix AD, Radius, Portal, SSO Portals (Google, etc.), and build our own environment. It is very flexible.

What needs improvement?

The GUI is on the older side but I'm sure that it will be upgraded soon. It works, but it looks a little dated.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
