Pros
"We have not had issues with Fortinet FortiAuthenticator.

They are very quick to respond and the support is very good.""The initial setup is very easy.""Intuitive interface and easy to deploy."

More Fortinet FortiAuthenticator Pros →

"Password management is a valuable feature.""The most valuable features in Oracle Identity Governance are identity and access management.""The one thing that stands out was is the automatic sign-out when an employee goes on vacation. Identity Governance can monitor when an employee goes on vacation and returns. We use this feature to automatically disable all the employee's accounts when they go on vacation, and they're automatically enabled when they come back.""The most valuable feature is the user manager certification that approves or removes user access.""It's a stable and scalable solution.""Good features are the RBAC and UI customization.""I am able to request any access rights I need.""What I like most about Oracle Identity Governance is that it is a very flexible tool. It allows you to do any customization on Java as it is built on Java and you can write any customization code using Java. I also like that Oracle Identity Governance is pretty much stable. In my company, there are a lot of users, so my company prefers this solution."

Cons
"I would like to see more ways to authenticate, such as adding facial recognition to the two-factor, where you log into your phone or another device.""The integration with other products, for example, some SAML authentications, would make it more flexible.""There are multiple areas that are in need of improvement. It is not a mature product.""Lacks a simplified two-factor authentication process.""There are some protocols, such as SHA and SHA-2, that are not supported.""FortiAuthenticator's interface could be better.""I would like to see integration and customization capabilities with the end-user portal to solve authentication issues with diverse implementation scenarios.""The price of the solution could improve, it is expensive."

More Fortinet FortiAuthenticator Cons →

"The solution should be easy to implement with components combined in one file and built-in features to integrate target applications without having to install additional connectors.""The platform could be enhanced with additional features.""The user interface experience needs to be improved.""The product design has some complications for doing some use cases. I would like to see easier onboarding of applications and easier ways to plugin the customization codes.""It's a complex solution, so it will take time in terms of deployment.""Identity Governance is a difficult tool to work with. You have to input many models to understand what is happening with the logins. The user interface is not so good. And a lot of the features we use aren't available out of the box.""The solution needs to improve its web interface in the next release.""One of the areas that need some improvement with Oracle specifically is the ease of implementation."

    Overview

    Fortinet FortiAuthenticator is the primary secure point of approved access into the Fortinet network, authorizing users, reviewing access permissions, and relaying the information to all Fortigate devices for comparison with identity-based protocols. Fortinet FortiAuthenticator is a top-ranked authorization and SSO solution.

    Appropriate secure access is fundamental to every role in an enterprise ecosystem. It is an integral function of every organization to ensure that every access and privilege is secure and to mitigate any possible risk to an organization. Approved users should only have access to the necessary information when they need it, from the appropriate location(s) to safeguard an organization's security at all times.

    Fortinet FortiAuthenticator is available as an appliance, virtual machine, or in the cloud.

    Fortinet FortiAuthenticator Methods

    • FSSO: FortiAuthenticator Single sign-on user will easily identify users and assign role or group access based on preset identity-based protocols. FortiAuthenticator integrates well with third-party LDAP or active directories, is very flexible, and combines these methods to provide effective security.

    • Active Directory Polling: Active directory access is securely identified by consistent polling of domain controllers. As users log in, username, IP address, and other details are logged into the database and can be shared across devices as directed by FortiAuthenticator protocols.

    • FortiAuthenticator Portal and Widgets: If a user system does not support AP polling, or for other reasons it is not feasible, FortiAuthenticator offers a unique secure authentication portal. Users can be manually authenticated and, to diminish the effect of numerous logins, an intuitive set of widgets is available to integrate into an organization's ecosystem that will automatically grant access to users when they access the organization's intranet homepage.

    • RADIUS Accounting Login: For organizations that use RADIUS authentication, RADIUS Accounting is available for user identification. This process will prompt user access information (IP and group, etc.) and eliminate the need for multiple levels of authentication.

    Oracle Identity Governance (OIG) is a very versatile and robust enterprise identity management solution that offers functional and business performance competence by supplying centralized administration and total automation of identity and client provisioning events throughout the organization and user applications. Oracle Identity Governance monitors the complete identity and role process to satisfy rapidly changing business and complex compliance regulations and quickly delivers critical reporting and compliance capabilities.

    Oracle Identity Governance is designed to easily identify which users have approved access to specific applications and other resources. It does this by using processes such as segregation of duties (SOD), role-based access control (RBAC), certifications, and access requests.

    Oracle Identity Governance Features

    • Self-service wizard: Oracle Identity Governance has worked to make the onboarding of applications significantly easier. It no longer takes numerous steps and technical expertise. The self-service wizard makes the process simple and user-friendly.

    • Self-service APIs: This gives Oracle Identity Governance users an improved user experience (UX). The REST APIs for user self-service can be used for both web and mobile users. Oracle Identity Governance users are easily able to view user accounts and roles, in addition to being able to complete self-service tasks such as forgotten passwords, registration, and more.

    • Certification: Oracle Identity Governance offers many certification options, such as a custom access reviewer, group reviewing support, and designate certifications by completed percentage. OIG can also focus on specific role access and anomalies for access beyond a user-defined role (UDF).

    • Integration connectors: Oracle Identity Governance has many integration connector options for both cloud and on-premises deployments. Popular categories include Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) and traditional and hybrid systems such as Fusion Applications (FA). OIG also integrates well with connectors to Database Application Tables (DBAT), scripting tools, and web services. OIG offers several integration connectors with many of today’s top SaaS applications, such as Dropbox, Google Apps, Office 365, ServiceNow, and WebEx.

    Reviews from Real Users

    The one thing that stands out was the automatic sign-out when an employee goes on vacation. Identity Governance can monitor when an employee goes on vacation and returns. We use this feature to automatically disable all the employee's accounts when they go on vacation, and they're automatically enabled when they come back. We can also automatically delete the employee's accounts when they're dismissed. Oracle has a model that gives you precise reports. It's called Crystal, and it's similar to JasperReports, so we can derive reports from this database. “ - Fabio L., Partner at a tech services company.

    “We are using Oracle Identity Manager for the management of the identity cycle. We have a human resources system as a source, and we have some custom-made applications as a destination of the changes in the identities. - A PeerSpot user who is a Project Manager at a government “
