Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""The ease of use is really nice. Using Authenticator, I've been able to actually work better on my authentication due to the fact that I have a single fabric to authenticate control from my firewall and on my access points. Authentication takes place from this area."

Cons
"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.""The solution could be more automated. It should be able to let me automate a lot of things so that what normally is done as a matter of manual processes can be handled quicker. Slow integrations can be taken up/out if there was more automation."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"You can pay as you go with them. You purchase a base license and add to it as needed.""The product could be more competitively priced.""It costs more to license the high-availability option.""The licensing structure is cost-effective for us compared to some of the other solutions that have recurring monthly costs.""FAC is an affordable solution for Middle Range (200E/400E) and also needs a package of mobility agents (2,000) perpetual."

Overview

FortiAuthenticator user identity management appliances strengthen enterprise security by simplifying and centralizing the management and storage of user identity information.

The RSA SecurID Suite combines the separate disciplines of access management and authentication with identity governance and user lifecycle management into one comprehensive suite. It goes way beyond the capabilities of traditional identity and access management systems by using risk analytics to provide identity and access assurance. This helps organizations solve two fundamental challenges:

  • Verifying that their users are who they say they are.
  • Providing their users with the right level of access.
