We use this product for SSL two-factor authentication and FortiToken management.

I am a solution architect and my company works purely for Fortinet, implementing all versions on a daily basis, so we're not end-users. The company is an exclusive distributor implementing the product. The primary use case of the product is usually for multifactor authentication using two-factor authentication with tokens. Sometimes people require two factors with a token. Sometimes they need the latest POC. I do a proof of concept for windows login. They need the agent who authenticates with SMS, token or email.

We primarily use the solution for FortiToken multi-factor authentication and as a VPN for login devices, among other cases.

The basic use we have for FortiAuthenticator is multi-pack authentication.

We implement FortiAuthenticator in situations where there are multiple Active Directory domains. Other use cases include: * When we need to use FortiClient to keep track of users as they move around different locations where normal FSSO would have issues * When we need to use one FortiToken for multiple Fortigates * When we want to use it as a domain controller. The FortiAuthenticator can do many things.

This solution is used for 2FA for Desktop and VPN access. Each computer, server and VPN access has to have a 2FA and the solution allowed us to accomplish this with a fob or phone app. We use the fob as phones are not owned by the company.
