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.

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.

It keeps track of users and their IPs no matter where they are in the network. When users roam, we don't have to worry about not mapping them to an IP.
Valuable features include the robust SSO features, when you have more complicated authentication within an organization. We can mix AD, Radius, Portal, SSO Portals (Google, etc.), and build our own environment. It is very flexible.

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.

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.

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 GUI is on the older side but I'm sure that it will be upgraded soon. It works, but it looks a little dated.
