Usually, I do an integration with the firewall. I would prefer to do it with FortiGate, but sometimes I need to integrate as a radius client and it depends on which firewall. I prefer FortiGate. Sometimes they'll need to add an SMS as the second factor of the two-factor authentication. But usually, we do it as an unarmed radius FortiGate, or firewall would be for a radius client and radius server. Sometimes clients will ask whether we have integration with a social portal like Facebook, but we don't. View full review »

The most valuable aspect of the solution is the security. It's great. The ease of use is really nice. Using Authenticator, I've been able to actually work better on my authentication due to the fact that I have a single fabric to authenticate control from my firewall and on my access points. Authentication takes place from this area. It's easy to use for us due to the fact that, for each and every user, even a Mac user, we're able to easily retrieve them and add them. The authenticator syncs to my system and brings all the users to me under my firewall. View full review »

The solution is really important to ensure double authentication for the user. For example, if you have an internal messenger and you want to ensure the access externally for users, you can implement the two-factor authentication. Also, for the VPN, you can implement two-factor authentication to avoid any kind of hacks. View full review »

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 this particular type of product for security on cloud. We chose FortiAuthenticator because it is an on-premise solution. View full review »
