Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)

If your solution falls within their standard use case or you have Office 365 - then it makes total sense. If you need a lot of customization or have a really specific business process that causes you to deviate from the standard flow it usually makes more sense to create a custom solution

Symantec VIP

Symantec VIP is well suited for enterprise institutions, like our own, managing a wide range of devices and wanting to provide their users with an extra layer of security. Being able to have 2-factor authentication with a unique pin was key for us and this would be well suited for any organization that holds sensitive information like, in our case, student records. They have great support and getting issues resolved does not take much time, a quick call to support usually straightens issues out.

Cons

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)

  • It can be difficult to work with when deviating off the standard use cases

  • Reliability on the app. Most users dislike having the authentication app on their cell phone because if they don't have their cellular device on-hand then they're unable to authenticate.
  • Perhaps a bio-metric enhancement in the near future would take this application to the next level.

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)

Honestly, they are very similar as is much of their offerings. It really comes down to which ecosystem are you already invested in? It doesn't make a lot of sense to try and interop with every cloud vendor - pick one and use them. While there used to be substantial differences in the cloud platforms, they are at basic parity now

Symantec VIP

Symantec VIP is too easy to use for our company. IT sets it up for us and we simply have to request for them to add new devices each time. It is an app and the numbers refresh fairly quickly. Overall, it is a painless integration and simple enough that all the employees can use it without a problem.

Return on Investment

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)

  • Overall, it's a really good value compared to building a custom solution that you have to maintain

Symantec VIP

  • It was as easy to implement and manage as promised, so that definitely saved us time and frustration.
  • It allowed us to improve on our existing PHI and PII security measures.
  • Allowing secure access from remote locations, especially smart phones, was a huge plus.
