We performed a comparison between Auth0 and Fortinet FortiAuthenticator based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The most important thing for me is compliance. Everything that they have developed in Auth0 is already certified by many regulators such as ISO. So, we do not need to take care of that. We have the shared responsibility model to share assets with other products we are using in the cloud."
"It's a very powerful platform. It has the ability to do the usual stuff, according to modern protocols, like OIDC and OAuth 2. But the real benefit of using the platform comes from its flexibility to enhance it with rules and, now, with what they call authentication pipelines. That is the most significant feature, as it allows you to customize everything regarding the authentication and authorization process."
"It is easily connected and easy to put our app in single sign-on."
"The most valuable feature is interface application integration, but we haven't fully used it yet. We'll need it in the future for a few potential clients."
"It supports identity federation, FSO and multi-tenancy."
"This is a scalable product."
"I prefer the passing tool that sent an active directory console to a Fortinet FortiAuthenticator, then Fortinet FortiAuthenticator does not pass the locks."
"FortiAuthenticator is easy to use."
"Simple to deploy, simple to use, and user-friendly."
"The most valuable feature is the OTP on the mobile phone."
"The initial setup is very easy."
"The most valuable features are the performance and ease of use."
"The most valuable feature is the flexibility in using the SMS messages."
"When they introduced the Organizations feature they did support different login screens per organization. However, they introduced a dependency between this feature and another called the New Universal Login Experience. The New Experience is a more lightweight login screen, but it is much less customizable. For example, today, we are able to fully customize our login screen and even control the background image according to the time of day. We have code to do that. But we are not able to write code anymore in the New Experience."
"There is a possibility to improve the machine-to-machine authentication flow. This part of Auth0 is not really well documented, and we could really gain some additional knowledge on that."
"The price modelling is a bit confusing on the site and can be costly."
"The product support for multi-tenancy could be improved."
"The Management API could be improved so it's easier to get user information."
"The speed of deployment on the cloud could be improved. It took a few days when it should have been just two days"
"It would be helpful to receive a code by yourself for authentication instead of it registered to a phone."
"There are multiple areas that are in need of improvement. It is not a mature product."
"FortiAuthenticator's interface could be better."
"I would like to see more security features in reference to identity login or identity identification."
"We've had some issues with integration."
"The price of the solution could improve, it is expensive."
"We had issues trying to integrate the keys properly during the initial setup."
