"We have not had issues with Fortinet FortiAuthenticator. It is stable."
"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."
"The initial setup is a valuable point on Fortinet products. Most of the time, putting the theory into practice on the devices is quite friendly and straightforward. As long as you can read English you can find your way around the solution and make it work. This is a high value point on Fortinet - the way everything is laid out in the web UI is user-friendly and quite straightforward. The UI is quite simple."
"It reduces the need for network administrator intervention by allowing the user to perform their own registration and resolve their own password problems and issues."
"The most valuable feature is the OTP on the mobile phone."
"The most valuable features are the performance and ease of use."
"FortiAuthenticator is easy to use."
"The logs have great detail that make it easier to evaluate and control the security environment."
"It provides basic automatic user administration and role provisioning to save time."
"What's most valuable in SAP Identity Management is that it's easily an out-of-the-box solution for connectivity with SAP applications. We do not have to do any customizations, and this makes the solution very compatible with most SAP applications. SAP Identity Management is also very user-friendly."
"The only way the solution could be improved is if it were cheaper."
"There are some protocols, such as SHA and SHA-2, that are not supported."
"The solution could be more automated. It should be able to let me automate a lot of things so that what normally is done as a matter of manual processes can be handled quicker. Slow integrations can be taken up/out if there was more automation."
"Integration with some other enterprise applications could be improved."
"There are multiple areas that are in need of improvement. It is not a mature product."
"It can not use SQL to query FortiAnalyzer directly."
"The price of the solution could improve, it is expensive."
"FortiAuthenticator's interface could be better."
"A lack of startup connectors to different systems, and could have better connectors for SAP IDM."
"What needs improvement in SAP Identity Management is its compatibility with third-party applications. We'd like to get connectors or plugin settings to make it easier to manage other applications, whether SAP or non SAP applications. As SAP Identity Management is not compatible with non SAP applications, some of the clients are looking for other IDM applications such as SalePoint and Saviynt, so this is an issue we've observed in the solution."
