Likelihood to Recommend

Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo

Great for organizations that need to deploy a solution that is used by a small group, given that Duo charges per account; however, be careful if you have a lot of service accounts that you want to set to bypass MFA, as you will have to pay for each one of them, as you would for any human user. Also good for small IT teams that need a solution that has a very straightforward and easy-to-use GUI. Finally, while it has a decent amount of features and functionality, don't expect it to be able to do every permutation of policy that you can think of, though Cisco is promising future updates and solutions (e.g. an adaptive product) that will address some very specific use-cases, such as MFA bypass based on user and IP.

Venafi allows an engineer to automate the full provisioning process not only installing the certificate to multiple applications but also configuring specific requirements for that application.

Pros

Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo

  • Duo Security has a convenient mobile app, so all our employees can implement it and login when and where they need to.
  • The app is streamlined and simple, and doesn't contain ads or unnecessary features.
  • Duo Security allows our employees to not only use it for their company login, but for external logins as well, so all of their dual-factor authentication data is in one app.

Cons

Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo

  • An extra step to configure when setting up with things like O365 products whereas the native client would have been easier.
  • At the time of implementation it did not integrate with the rest of the cisco security suite.
  • Documentation was light or lacking for any lesser known products.
  • Had to configure ManageEngine as a "generic app" when doing SSO. Really need to build out the prebuilt app's base quicker for us lazy IT people.

  • The Venafi platform is constantly evolving through its upgrades which occur every quarter to meet client's specific needs. This is an outstanding model however the documentation that follows the upgrades could be more thorough.

This is a very easy application to use. The installation is simple, the user interface is user friendly. If you have been reading my review to this point, you should understand very well that I have said that this is a good product to use for multi-factor authentication. From an administrative point of view, deployment was easy as well.

Overall the support that Duo and a great company like Cisco provides has been excellent. With the initial setup and integration of Duo, the tech people we dealt with were super helpful and walked us through the whole process. They provided adequate training and resources for our internal IT team to set up and run the application. We haven't had any major issues with our end-users.

Duo is easier to use since it is an app and only needs your phone for authentication. The other products I have used in the past require a separate device. Everyone carries their phone with them so there is no need to remember to carry around another device.

Each public certificate provider has their own flavor of certificate automation, but they are not that flexible and only work with their own products.Certified Security Solutions CMS is a lightweight tool that directly competes with Venafi, but is not nearly as robust or feature risk. This is a straight forward management solution that is best fitted for the smaller companies.

Return on Investment

Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo

  • Duo Security has been a positive ROI in that it has prevented unwarranted access to confidential information.
  • Duo Security has been a positive ROI in that it keeps me informed of what's going on with my devices.
  • Duo Security has been a negative ROI in that it costs money that I'm not sure is well spent all of the time.

  • An outage is a very devastating event to any large corporation and can cost millions. Venafi's ability to prevent these outages has proven to be a great return on investment for our environment and has helped protect the bottom line.
  • Venafi automates certificate installation with an included feature to schedule the install in advance. This is a great benefit of the tool because it eliminates human error and prevents any forgotten or overlooked certificates to be renewed. After installation Venafi will also validate the certificate to confirm that it has been installed properly. This shows just how thorough this tool really is.
  • Security compliance is of the utmost importance in a large organization for auditing purposes and certificate security policies but at times can prove to be difficult to enforce. Venafi has proven to play a pivotal role in enforcing these policies in our environment.
