We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Its ease of installation is most valuable. It took me five minutes, and it was up and running. It didn't take me that long. The installation on the cell phones is pretty simple."
"Its ease of use is most valuable. It is simple to use and can be deployed out-of-the-box. It is quite a mature product with all the required features."
"The integrated Fortinet security with the app that allows you to easily do the two-factor authentication is most valuable."
"I think it is really good when it comes to the hard token side of things."
"Its reporting should be better. The reporting feature is missing. I don't have any reporting of who has done what, what has failed, and what didn't work."
"It needs a lot of coupling with their other Fortinet products. To implement FortiToken, I most probably need to couple it with FortiAuthenticator for full implementation. An RSA token can be used with many devices, whereas Fortinet FortiToken is always linked to only one FortiGate device. If I want to reuse the token across five or six FortiGates, I would have to get the FortiAuthenticator product. I can't use one token to connect to different FortiGates, and I need to get another product to enable this functionality. They should also improve the support for their mobile client. There should be a more detailed roadmap for the operating systems being supported. Some of our users were using an old iOS iPhone, and they were forced to get a newer phone because FortiToken didn't support that version of iOS. Similarly, there may be a version of Android that is not supported, so the users need to change the phone. This was one of the reasons why our deployment took longer."
"The app could be improved so that you don't have to actually type in the code. It would be great if you can just do a prompt or push similar to the way Duo does."
"There are different compliances across the globe; RSA SecurID Access could be more complaint-based."
"It is included as part of our firewall license."
"I think the price of this solution is reasonable compared to YubiKey and Duo given that it offers the same similar features."
As we've seen, passwords alone don't keep unwanted guests out of your network. Password-only authentication has led to security breaches, malware infections, and policy violations. With two-factor authentication, a password is used along with a security token and authentication server to provide far better security. Authorized employees can remotely access company resources safely using a variety of devices, ranging from lpatops to mobile phones.
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:
Fortinet FortiToken is ranked 4th in Authentication Systems with 3 reviews while RSA SecurID Access is ranked 7th in Authentication Systems with 1 review. Fortinet FortiToken is rated 7.4, while RSA SecurID Access is rated 7.0. The top reviewer of Fortinet FortiToken writes "Mature, stable, and easy to use and deploy". On the other hand, the top reviewer of RSA SecurID Access writes "Scalable and secure, but could be more compliant-based". Fortinet FortiToken is most compared with Fortinet FortiAuthenticator, Duo Security, Yubico YubiKey, Microsoft Authenticator and SafeNet Authentication Manager, whereas RSA SecurID Access is most compared with Yubico YubiKey, PingID, Cisco ISE (Identity Services Engine), CyberArk Privileged Access Manager and Fortinet FortiAuthenticator.

We monitor all Authentication Systems reviews to prevent fraudulent reviews and keep review quality high. We do not post reviews by company employees or direct competitors. We validate each review for authenticity via cross-reference with LinkedIn, and personal follow-up with the reviewer when necessary.
