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

Pros
"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."

"The solution was easy to deploy.""It helps the end users to work on the road without needing to set up all kinds of VPN connections""The most valuable feature is that it will use my credentials to access various parts of the infrastructure or other solutions, such as vRealize.""The most valuable feature is single sign-on.""The most valuable feature is the User Experience Designer, which has been very helpful for our project."

Cons
"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."

More Fortinet FortiAuthenticator Cons »

"The security features could always use improvement, although there has already been a huge improvement from years ago.""it's very dependent on an active directory""Many of the features that exist in Active Directory do not exist in Identity Manager, which means that people depend on Active Directory.""We have a lot of problems when it comes to integrating with Active Directory.""I would like to have better support for multi-cloud sessions."

Pricing and Cost Advice

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."

More Fortinet FortiAuthenticator Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We pay approximately $6.50 per user for the standard version. If you are paying for an enterprise license that includes VDI then it will cost approximately $25 per user on a monthly basis.""Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis."
