Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The two-factor login is great. I receive a message and just have to press okay.""The multi-factor authentication process and the geo-locking features are great.""The push notifications and the integrations they offer are valuable. Their mobile app is very useful. It is very easy to use.""It is a good solution for hybrid environments and VPN.""It meets our security needs very well. It is easy to use, and documentation is also available. It is also very stable and scalable, and its support is also very good. We are satisfied with this solution."

More Duo Security Pros »

"It is totally awesome in terms of scalability. Its scalability was the main reason for moving to Google Cloud. It also comes with a lot of features. We are satisfied with the features it has.""The app provides ready-made services that we can talk to without issue.""There is a lot of flexibility and a lot of control if you use this efficiently.""The solution is very easy to use. It's easy to navigate and to work with.""The solution is stable.""We do not need to maintain the hardware.""There is a certain accessibility feature that I can set using a cloud identity, which is really valuable to us.""The most valuable features of Google Cloud Platform are the Kubernetes engine, CI/CD, and BigQuery."

Cons
"We had some trouble with the password reset function.""The dashboard needs to be improved.""The only time I really had some negative feedback for them was about the UI of their mobile app, but they improved it in the last version. It is good on the functionality side, but their pricing model is a little bit weird. Currently, there is no price advantage in signing up for yearly contracts. If you are on a monthly term or a yearly contract, you basically pay the same price, and that is very unusual. Normally, there is a discount when someone signs up for the 12-month system.""Its documentation must be in French because we are a French-speaking country. They should also provide more training documentation. Its management interface should also be improved. They should also improve its update period. If I compare its update period with other products such as Palo Alto firewalls, this solution is really slow in updates.""Certain customers can not use this product because it is cloud-based."

More Duo Security Cons »

"The hard part is creating the pack because our applications are in Azure Data Proxy, Data Fabric, and Data Factory. Our team used these tools in Azure, but in the future, they will transition to GCP.""The setup could be more user-friendly.""The solution should have better integration.""We have some challenges related to purging the data. We get a lot of data on a daily basis that has to be refreshed on the site, but we are seeing some challenges with that. They can also include some third-party integration. We have one Akamai dependency. If they can come up with some API to talk to Akamai, it would be good.""The support can be more efficient. Google has different layers of support, like layer one, layer two, and layer three, but normally, the response from layer one is not very useful.""I think this product needs to shift the focus from our software, our solution, like social media analytics to our customers; not maintenance in the hardware.""the documentation could be a bit better in terms of what is presented on the screen versus what actually happens.""The solution could be more reasonably priced. We find it to be a bit expensive right now."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Their pricing model is a little bit weird. Currently, there is no price advantage in signing up for yearly contracts. There are no additional costs to the standard licensing costs.""Our licensing fee is currently on an annual basis.""Its price is reasonable. It is not highly expensive.""During testing we are allowed a certain number of licenses for free."

More Duo Security Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I think the price of Google Cloud Platform is reasonable. However, Microsoft is the most cost-effective solution for us because of Azure's integration. And we already have licenses for Windows Server and the databases, so the price is attractive.""The customer purchases an annually sponsored license.""I think that the cost is metered based on the data, but I don't have the details.""Its price is good. For each server, we are saving $300 a month. We have at least thousands of servers. It is a huge cost reduction for us."

Overview
Cloud-based user authentication vendor: authenticate with your phone, Duo mobile app, landline, or tokens with or without an internet connection

Google’s mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Since our founding in 1998, Google has grown by leaps and bounds. From offering search in a single language we now offer dozens of products and services—including various forms of advertising and web applications for all kinds of tasks—in scores of languages. And starting from two computer science students in a university dorm room, we now have thousands of employees and offices around the world. A lot has changed since the first Google search engine appeared. But some things haven’t changed: our dedication to our users and our belief in the possibilities of the Internet itself.
