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

I find FortiAuthenticator to be a good solution for small to medium-sized companies that want to use a more secure VPN for more remote work. Especially for user ID management devices, this product will be the right choice for companies that want to centralize the management and storage of user ID information. Also if you need to deploy SSO in your company's internal solutions and MFA in your external solutions, this product is for you.

Cons

Atlassian Crowd

  • Some systems that are not crucial turned into more work than what was originally deemed necessary to successfully deploy Crowd.
  • Linux support was there as it was built mostly to support Windows based systems
  • Documentation was supported but most issues we had required us to contact Atlassian support.

FortiAuthenticator

  • GUI design is very poor and not user friendly in my opinion.
  • Solutions for third-party software using On-Prime are extremely poor.

Overall, support is good, you get quick responses from Atlassian's official support system, and documentation is decent enough for you to find what you need.

Alternatives Considered

Atlassian Crowd

These products allow you to install them on your own infrastructure, so you can manage all aspects of them which can prevent you from getting throttled from API calls. When you hit a certain threshold of scale you may need to switch off of Atlassian Cloud to your own hardware. When you are a small startup, however, this product is probably a good starting point.

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.

Return on Investment

Atlassian Crowd

  • New systems are tough when it comes to an ROI, as a dollar amount for saving time on a sign-in can be tough to track. Like most new systems that makes things slightly easier to execute as an end user or manage or support, it really might come down to the existing structure of how a company manages its users.
  • The positives are always with the end user, which I have to say, Crowd was able to accomplish.

FortiAuthenticator

  • The GUI interface's instructions are inadequate.
  • It is a costly solution.
