Cisco Secure Access by Duo

Cisco Secure Access by Duo is recommended if you need to enable multifactor authentication with no major effort to implement it, understanding you have to pay a license per user. It's important to mention that what you are paying gives you a lot of possibilities to enable SSO on your applications, even legacy systems., there is no need to pay extra for it. If you are looking for free or cheap software, Cisco Secure Access by Duo is not an option.

WatchGuard AuthPoint

WatchGuard Authpoint is well-suited for existing WatchGuard users and those heavily dependent on VPN connection. The app is easy to use and set up on iPhone and Android devices. We use a Firebox M370 and have had zero issues in the deployment or the daily use of WatchGuard AuthPoint. Everything works well and we have had zero issues after initial implementation.

Pros

Cisco Secure Access by Duo

  • It integrates very well with multiple products such as M365 and VMware
  • It allows for multiple security options including hardware tokens and a phone app
  • If users are locked out for whatever reason, it's easy to get them up and running again with the Duo admin dashboard
James Heiney | TrustRadius Reviewer

WatchGuard AuthPoint

  • The Authpoint Cloud portal is easy to use and navigate
  • It integrates well with the Firebox and gateway
  • Promptly sends 2FA request onto the user devices
  • Its very easy to re-activate token on a new device if the device is lost or stolen
  • Troubleshooting logs are available to figure out whats wrong if a user cannot authenticate
Syed Iqbal | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

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.
Ryan Lee | TrustRadius Reviewer

WatchGuard AuthPoint

  • While the set up was easy to do the instructions could use a little more details.
  • It would be useful to be able to tell how many users are at the firewall level instead of going out to the cloud to look for it.

Even for those tenants that we use strictly for mobile VPN only, the ease of user management makes continuing to use AuthPoint a no-brainer

Like all Cisco products, it can be a little difficult to configure and use properly. Once set up, it works like a charm, and we rarely have to reconfigure it or update it. We do wish it integrated better with our SonicWALL firewalls.

WatchGuard AuthPoint is very user friendly, with minimal interaction needed to both set it up, and to maintain it's continued use. The log in interface is easily understood, with clear and easily understood icons to allow for different methods of authentication. The WatchGuard team is constantly improving their Login app, which is constantly improving the user interface, allowing for a smoother and quicker login process.

Most of my support has come from the pre-sales side, as I haven't done much with post-sales support. The engineer was helpful, though it would have been even better if he had more production experience. Hopefully the backing by Cisco will give Duo support the deep bench that one would expect out of Cisco.

In the case that support from WatchGuard is required, whether it be deploying to a bespoke application or product, or maintaining an existing product - WatchGuard support is fast and efficient. From logging the ticket (which is easy AND comprehensive) to getting it resolved, WatchGuard makes it easy allowing you to select how and when you want to be contacted.

It was an Onsite demo at the ditributor with the benefits of Watchguard Authpoint. Was very nice to see the abilities of the product. This Demo was a few years back, since then Authpoint changed allot. It is very nice for partners that you can get this demo without any aditional cost.

We use the online training for all our employees. There are both sales and technical trainings available and there even is a technical certification. You can use this for the Watchguard Partner Program which can give you aditional benefits. Every now and then you have a webinar that discusses multiple Watchguard products.

the first time it takes more effort. It is helpful to already understand how each authentication type works. Then it's much easier to understand the MFA solution that you implement. It is useful to check the release notes from time to time and update the key parts of the Watchguard Authpoint. Authpoint Gateway, Logon App, RDWeb... Also, it's useful to set up notifications when something goes wrong or sometimes check the statistics of how many requests are being approved/denied, etc.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Secure Access by Duo

I think that Duo is better than SecureAuth because the interface is better. I like the usability better and I like the design and functionality better. I wasn't involved in the selection process and initially didn't want to make the switch because I had heard some complaints about Duo but now that I have used it for a couple of years I would definitely say it is better than what I was using.

WatchGuard AuthPoint

We use DUO Mobile for our other MFA (i.e., Remote Desktop for Windows.) WatchGuard offers instructions on how to set up MFA with DUO, however, the WatchGuard AuthPoint setup was much simpler, so we opted to go that route. We are planning on looking into switching everything to WatchGuard AuthPoint, however, it's not a high priority at this time.

Return on Investment

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.
Thomas Young | TrustRadius Reviewer

WatchGuard AuthPoint

  • Integration with current Azure AD and LDAP is important as it saves the users from creating a new account and password to remember for yet another website/product.
  • The cost of a user license is nothing compared to the cost of data loss or a company network breach. It secures our devices and data in cases of theft or breaches. Theft of a device, data, or even worse a breach would cost the company thousands to millions of dollars.
  • A negative impact is that the users lose about 10-30 seconds with every login or unlock of their computer. However, this is necessary for MFA security.
