Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Scalable and stable.""I like how the solution allows me to support different types of hardware tokens and integrate with OTP.""The technical support services are good.""We use this solution to log into virtual machines like VMware and VMware Horizon.""The most valuable feature of SafeNet Authentication Manager is authentication."

More Thales Authenticators 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 →

"The product could be improved by adding more features for sending tokens via SMS or phone calls.""The stability could improve.""The solution should allow for support of multi-tenant architecture.""The problem with SafeNet is that it's not integrated with Microsoft 365.""Lacks integration with other platforms."

More Thales Authenticators 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."

    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.
