Fortinet FortiAuthenticator Scalability

RAMACHANDRAR
Director - Global Solutions & Customer Service at Bits and Byte IT Consulting
For scalability, you need to size FortiAuthenticator properly. You should plan it initially, then make the implementation. It's is not 100%, maybe 80% on the scalable side. There are some places where we use it for 800 to 1000 users. With the proper deployment, we can support close to 2000 users. You need certified people to understand this product like dedicated engineers. You need a person that knows the product and how it works. Otherwise, if any new person comes to FortiAuthenticator, it will be very difficult for them to understand. Over time, you'll be able to get to know the layout and how the product works.

I think it's scalable. There are two kinds of appliances: virtual and physical. If you do a good sizing, the physical one can remain with the customer for a long time. The virtual one can be increased as you need. You can pay as you go with them. You purchase a base license and add to it as needed. I have done an installation at an operator with over 200 users. That is the biggest one I've done. View full review »

We haven't really tested scalability that much. We have about 200 users and we don't plan to increase usage any time soon. View full review »
