We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The two-factor login is great. I receive a message and just have to press okay."
"The push notifications and the integrations they offer are valuable. Their mobile app is very useful. It is very easy to use."
"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."
"The multi-factor authentication process and the geo-locking features are great."
"It is a good solution for hybrid environments and VPN."
"Other than it provides us with remote access, so it's fairly easy to install, fairly easy to set up, and provides us the ability to get into our corporate environment."
"Certain customers can not use this product because it is cloud-based."
"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."
"We had some trouble with the password reset function."
"The dashboard needs to be improved."
"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."
"It gets out of sync with Active Directory or whatever it might be, whatever the authentication piece is on Active Directory, and they just reset it on the backend. I never have to contact the vendor."
"Its price is reasonable. It is not highly expensive."
"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."
"During testing we are allowed a certain number of licenses for free."
