Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Stability-wise, I rate the solution a ten out of ten.""The solution is pretty solid.""Fortinet FortiToken provides security and authenticates that the right external people are working with a company's system.""Its ease of installation is most valuable. It took me five minutes, and it was up and running. It didn't take me that long. The installation on the cell phones is pretty simple.""The product provides secure access to our internal server.""FortiToken is available in a soft or hard token factor, so there's some flexibility in that. Beyond that, I would say it is a stable solution that has worked for us.""The integrated Fortinet security with the app that allows you to easily do the two-factor authentication is most valuable.""The tool's support is the best."

More Fortinet FortiToken Pros →

"The most valuable features are two-factor authentication and real-time logon monitoring.""We mainly implemented UserLock for multi-factor authentication, but the user login insights are also nice."

More UserLock Pros →

"You need your mobile just to enroll the tokens, and sometimes, it's difficult to use for someone who is not knowledgeable""Fortinet FortiToken could be lower for some markets.""Fortinet FortiToken should improve its push notifications.""The solution comes with two firewalls as a bundle. In that bundle, most of the individual users can be assigned to mobile users. However, in cases of technical difficulties, users may accidentally remove the mobile application. In normal scenarios, we get back to the activation key and assign it again.""I would like to see if FortiToken can integrate with Office 365 mail to support the same two-factor authentication experience that I have with ESET. With ESET, when a user logs in, they are easily directed to the ESET authentication page, where they are prompted to enter their OTP after supplying their username and password. I understand from support that FortiToken cannot do this with email integration. That's why I opted for ESET.""I would rate the scalability a seven out of ten. The migration issue definitely brings it down a bit.""The solution could introduce a mobile application instead of a physical product.""Support is a pain point in Bangladesh because there aren't many experienced Fortinet engineers in this country. It's easier to find one certified in Cisco, Palo Alto, or Juniper."

More Fortinet FortiToken Cons →

"I would like to see UserLock add the ability to automatically create a group policy in Active Directory. That might streamline the setup process.""The product and service are already great as it is but if I could add one feature, I guess it would be nice to have another factor of authentication (two additional factors) like your phone and a token for example, for when people forget their phone at home."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is included as part of our firewall license."
  • "Overall, it's cheaper than other solutions. Of course, we evaluated it five years back, and I haven't checked to see its current market position, but one reason we adopted FortiToken is its lower cost of ownership relative to other solutions we evaluated."
  • "I would rate the pricing as an eight out of ten. We purchased the solution at a reasonable price in 2019."
  • "On a scale of one to ten, where one is the cheapest, and ten is the highest, I rate the pricing an eight."
  • "The solution’s price is good."
  • "Fortinet FortiToken is not an expensive solution."
  • "The pricing is not very high, so I'd rate it around six out of ten, where one is high and ten is low."
  • "From an Indian perspective, it's definitely costlier."

    As we've seen, passwords alone don't keep unwanted guests out of your network. Password-only authentication has led to security breaches, malware infections, and policy violations. With two-factor authentication, a password is used along with a security token and authentication server to provide far better security.  Authorized employees can remotely access company resources safely using a variety of devices, ranging from lpatops to mobile phones.

    Two Factor Authentication & Access Management for Windows Active Directory.

    UserLock helps administrators to manage and secure access for every user, without obstructing employees or frustrating IT.

    Two Factor Authentication on Windows logon, RDP, IIS and VPN connections. UserLock supports 2FA using authenticator applications which include Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator and LastPass Authenticator, or programmable hardware tokens such as YubiKey and Token2.

    Single Sign-On: Secure and frictionless access to Microsoft 365 and other Cloud Applications, using on-premise Active Directory credentials.

    Access Restrictions: Using the contextual information around a user’s logon, UserLock will authorize, deny or limit how a user can access the network, once authenticated.

    Access Monitoring: Track and alert on all users’ logon and logoff activity in real-time. Interact remotely with any session and respond to login behavior. 

    Access Auditing: Record and report on all user connection events to provide a central audit across the whole network.
