Fortinet FortiToken Review

The integrated Fortinet security with the app for easy two-factor authentication is valuable, but instead of typing the code, there should be a push


What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution for administrator access to firewalls. We have its latest version.

How has it helped my organization?

FortiToken is just there to do the administration of the firewalls. For two-factor authentication, we like Duo more.

What is most valuable?

The integrated Fortinet security with the app that allows you to easily do the two-factor authentication is most valuable.

What needs improvement?

The app could be improved so that you don't have to actually type in the code. It would be great if you can just do a prompt or push similar to the way Duo does.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using it for three years in our organization.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is good. We have a very small use case for it. If I want to roll it out for a larger use case, I don't think it would have any issues. We currently have got only got four firewall administrators who use this solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not interacted with them for FortiToken.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

I just did it myself.

What was our ROI?

Overall, it has provided an ROI. It is included as part of our firewall license.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is included as part of our firewall license. 

What other advice do I have?

I would advise others to make sure that they have cellular phones that are company-owned or they have employees who are willing to use their own in order to use it.

I would rate Fortinet FortiToken a six out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
