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

It is very well appropriate for companies, especially larger companies, to improve the security of using the email address or logging in the company websites which are highly confidential. This can track the employee's activities and used devices easier than just simply relying on the email and password authentication or being strict in the devices' MAC address. For me, using Symantec VIP can be a hassle if it is back to the office setup since all of the devices there are well observed and tracked so there is little to no use in using additional security like this one.

Symantec VIP

  • The UI is intuitive and simple to use and navigate. When generating a secure token to be used for VPN access, all the navigation is clear and intuitive. There is no confusion when our users use Symantec VIP.
  • Every generated token expires after 30-60 seconds, thus providing an extra layer of security and reducing any risk of someone re-using a token or pin to gain unauthorized access into our system.
  • The app is super responsive and has no lag and little to no latency. Everything loads quickly and is super speedy.
  • Our department can opt for a 6 digit code which we can use while logging in on different sites and SSO access can be easily set up and achieved with this tool.

Cons

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)

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

Symantec VIP

  • when setting a token to a phone call, the phone calls often take a minute + to call the user.
  • When Symantec's VIP app is removed or reinstalled on a phone, the credential ID will change, and that dictates a call to the helpdesk to allow the user access.
  • Temporary security codes while handy, must be set to expire immediately to stay secure.

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

Duo is good but Symantec VIP really takes the cake. Both Symantec VIP and Duo Security are used as a two factor application but Symantec VIP also allows you to use physical tokens. Some of our users prefer those over their phones and we can easily leverage Symantec VIP for that.

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.
