Likelihood to Recommend

FortiAuthenticator

FortiAuthenticator user identity management appliances
strengthen enterprise security by simplifying and centralizing the management
and storage of user identity information. It is easier to configure compare to
a radius server, and offers a lot of great features like a password reset
portal. For this reason, I would highly recommend FortiAuthenticator to anyone
who needs that extra security.

HyperSocket is very well suited if the resources and budget are made available. There is not much a learning curve for the IT Department or for those users already familiar with two-factor authentication. There will be some education and training requirements for most end-users as the notifications and general verbiage can be confusing for some. It may also show some exploits within some end-users who are unaware of a notification but will use the email to reset an expired password without thinking twice if it may have been a phishing email or the opposite where an end-user deletes or ignores the expiration email notification expecting it to be spam/phishing.

Cons

FortiAuthenticator

  • Integration with more enterprise applications can be improve
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Hypersocket

  • Help-Desk functionality similar to OneIdentity Self-Service Password Manager, as it provides additional users that do not require administrative access to assist with managing end-users who may have locked themselves out of HyperSocket Access Manager by forgetting their own security questions.
  • Too many features which become unusable and feel like the payment plans are not flexible since it's an all-in-one product with one price. It is not necessarily a bad thing as most subscription-based pricing forces a buyer to pay more for an integral service that is only available on the highest price-plan. You really do get what you pay for, but we found many of our use-case scenarios limited the product.
  • This isn't necessarily against the product, just a personal opinion around Multi-Factor authentication which is always primarily driven mobile devices. Not all companies or end-users have access to a multi-factor device, (or in our case, are allowed to have access to a cell phone while servicing members/clients). This creates a shortfall to allow multi-factor functionality to extend to all users unless there are hardware tokens, which can be miss placed or left out more easily as most users don't treat it the same way they would their personal smartphone.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Nervepoint Access Manager (NAM) has the ability to deal with multiple domains. While ServiceNow at the time we looked at the solution did not (I do not know if it does now). NAM was a more polished, mature product.

Return on Investment

FortiAuthenticator

  • Single Sign On capabilities if you have existing Fortinet devices.
  • Certificate management for VPN and enterprise wireless deployment

  • As with any IT Service or Solution, the investment will always be seen as a sunk cost. The only ROI would be the time and resources spent elsewhere rather than with Password Management through an IT Department or similar department. I found that the time spent on password management was about the same, as many users who are frequently forgetting a password are also forgetting their security question & answers.
  • There are some positives, as it was able to help manage the bulk of their non-windows passwords or passwords related to another online service. The centralized password manager doesn't feel like a true single sign-on but for most users, it replaces a hand-written copy they have taped to a monitor.
  • It can help with automating some of the active directory workflows with its own user provisioning functionality. Took more time to set up than it was to manage on its own.
