"By deploying Duo, we have virtually eliminated the risk of direct deposit redirection as a result of credentials that have been compromised via phishing.""The most valuable aspect is the authentication and the SSO.""It is a good solution for hybrid environments and VPN.""The two-factor login is great. I receive a message and just have to press okay."

"FortiAuthenticator is a very good solution. It is all jury-based. FortiAuthenticator is very easy for anyone to understand how it works and be able to take action.""The initial setup is so easy and there is no problem in the implementation.""The feature I value the most is the one-time passwords because it helps to authenticate users so you know the timing of their usage.""The solution's most valuable aspect is that it easy to install. The user experience is very good.""The solution is easy to learn and makes it easy for our users to add FortiToken. It's very easy to integrate if you have other Fortinet devices.""For someone concerned with multifactor authentication, I'm satisfied with the product.""We use this product for SSL two-factor authentication and FortiToken management.""The logs have great detail that make it easier to evaluate and control the security environment."

"Reducing or eliminating the "telephony credits" system used by Duo would be great.""Removing the need for a password would be a positive change as well as the ability to cover all the different enterprise applications. They don't have coverage for everything.""The dashboard needs to be improved.""Certain customers can not use this product because it is cloud-based."

"Other features that would improve the product are a single sign-on where people can use their Gmail ID to log-in, etc.""If you want some other FortiAuthenticator from one site to another site, you should have requirements, but really if you have authentication and directory or another solution, you should change the password of the authenticator between the solution and the directory and other things. So transfer of data and other information should be simpler.""I don't have any issues with this solution, but it may need a better, more user-friendly interface or better design of the platform.""The hardware aspect of the solution could be improved. We are not really able to understand the hardware capabilities of the device.""We have issues with HA (high availability). These should be addressed in future releases.""No SMS gateway from the ISP""It does the job I paid for, but the graphical interface could be improved.""It can not use SQL to query FortiAnalyzer directly."
