Likelihood to Recommend

Atlassian Crowd

For companies that are already using other Atlassian systems, then Atlassian Crowd will fit in very well. This is especially the case if the company is not yet big enough to use LDAP for user management, Atlassian Crowd can act as a temporary solution until the company outgrows it, as it is much easier and simpler than LDAP.

FortiAuthenticator

FortiAuthenticator user identity management appliances
strengthen enterprise security by simplifying and centralizing the management
and storage of user identity information. It is easier to configure compare to
a radius server, and offers a lot of great features like a password reset
portal. For this reason, I would highly recommend FortiAuthenticator to anyone
who needs that extra security.

Alternatives Considered

Atlassian Crowd

In most ways, I preferred Duo Security as it offered a better 2-factor authentication method, and Crowd is definitely better than just having to rely on Active Directory. I have always been of the mind to have a centralized server that sits between your active directory (azure or on premise) and the systems that you integrate it with via LDAP or similar protocols. It would surprise a lot of people to see how many organizations do not secure their active directory or LDAP connections

FortiAuthenticator

FortiAuthenticator is an affordable solution for middle
range organization, it also comes with a package of mobility agents which
utilize perpetual licenses. Although it cost more per license if you are opted
for the high-availability option. The ease of use is the key selling point of
FortiAuthenticator, it will quickly in add an extra layer of security within
your network, without going through a complicated process to deploy it.
