What is most valuable?

One of the things I find most valuable in FortiAuthenticator is the detail in the logs. The log features are very good and the detail makes it easier to control what happens in the environment. Another valuable feature is that it is an on-premise solution. Because of some regulations, we can not use… more »

What needs improvement?

There is nothing that really stands out as something that needs desperately to be added or improved. We are using Fortinet all the time, we know their GUIs, so we can manage well with FortiAuthenticator also. The main problem now is not exactly with the product itself. We are using FortiAnalyzers… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think FortiAuthenticator is more expensive than other products like Cisco Duo. It could be more competitively priced. We want to use high-availability in our products, so we need to get a higher grade and more expensive license for that purpose.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Authenticator as about a seven-point-five. If it has to be seven or eight, I would choose eight.

What needs improvement?

For us, the solution works quite well. I can't think of an area where improvements are needed. I haven't worked with it too extensively yet, so it's hard to gauge what's lacking. The solution could be more automated. It should be able to let me automate a lot of things so that what normally is done… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Before using FortiAuthenticator we were not using anything else. We just were controlling everything from our Fortinet firewall. That was the only equipment which we had at that point in time. Now, we have got FortiAuthenticator. Going forward we might go for FortiNAC. That might be in the cards for… more »

What other advice do I have?

We're just end users. We don't have a special relationship with the company. We're using the latest version of the solution. It might be something around version six. I would recommend FortiAuthenticator to other organizations. It is really a good product. Somebody looking for a good security… more »
