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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"It is included as part of our firewall license."
"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."

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.
