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.

Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security

Any organization that is running Office 365 for email should have EMS licenses. The benefits are manifold compared to the reasonable cost. Truthfully, I think a lot of the features should be part of an O365 Business Premium license, but since the EMS license is a drop in the bucket, it's hard to complain.

Pros

FortiAuthenticator

  • Multi Factor Authentication
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security

  • Azure AD Single Sign-On -- this is my favorite feature of EMS + Security. It is easy to setup and MS has simple instructions for most popular cloud services.
  • InTune -- the changeover from the old InTune Client/Silverlight Portal has been painful, but once you get Win10 devices setup with InTune, management is a breeze.

Cons

FortiAuthenticator

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

Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security

  • InTune deployment via Hybrid Azure AD. The instructions seem very simple but there are lots of little areas you can get tripped up and there is little logging to see where you've gone wrong.
  • Advanced Threat Protection anti-impersonation. It is WAY too sensitive. Users emailing themselves from personal accounts get their mail sent to quarantine just because the name/label of the personal account matches their Office 365 mailbox name/label? HUH???
  • Licensing. Typical of Microsoft, what you're actually getting and details of licensing are confusing.

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.

EMS integrates directly with Office 365. It offers multiple desired features in one product/subscription. It's difficult to do a 1:1 comparison between each product. OneLogin's pre-sales support was terrible and implementation was complex. Barracuda offers great email protection but hard to justify the cost when EMS can just be added on to existing Office 365 accounts and brings additional benefit in SSO, etc.

Return on Investment

FortiAuthenticator

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

Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security

  • SSO setup through Azure AD has saved IT staff countless hours of lost passwords, multiple password resets, offboarding departed staff accounts, etc.
  • Anti malware/phishing policies have prevented active malware/phishing campaigns.
