Google Authenticator

Google Authenticator is great if you need a quick and dirty authentication program. Because it is a very minimalistic design, there is not a lot of customization available. It would be more helpful to hide some of the addresses and sites that I don’t use that often, instead of having one running list that I have to match up to what I’m looking for carefully.

RSA SecurID Suite

Easy to implement and support. Flexible platforms and user-friendly interface. Not a lot of customization is available to customers and response time of support could be better. There are now competing products that utilize new features like facial recognition. Using camera and fingerprint sensors are becoming standard in smartphones so RSA SecureID should offer those as options.

Pros

Google Authenticator

  • Easy implementation: The product is very easy to implement both from embedding it into the application and from end users using it via their smartphones.
  • You can use Google Authenticator to manage multiple two-factor authentication keys.
  • Easy to add keys options: You can scan a QR code to set up 2FA in Google Authenticator. You can also do a manual entry using the unique key provided by the application you are setting up 2FA for.

RSA SecurID Suite

  • RSA Authentication Manager is easy to deploy and configure.
  • It is a scalable solution meant for a large enterprise.
  • Some of the key features of RSA Authentication Manager where it particularly does well are provisioning, mapping, and logging.
  • It has a very nice console with good administrative and troubleshooting options.
  • Reliable security for VPN, applications, and wifi.

Cons

Google Authenticator

  • If you lose your phone, there is no way to transfer all of the 2FA codes to a new device if you lose yours. Some of the other 2FA apps have the capability of doing this.
  • It is not foolproof. Especially because Chinese hackers just learned how to bypass all 2FA solutions.
Mike Calabro | TrustRadius Reviewer

RSA SecurID Suite

  • The Android application cannot be easily returned to the original code (if you chose to move to the next code).
  • If misconfigured, it can lock an administrator out of a server.
  • The look and feel of the RSA control center status bar application have a dated feel.

Long story short, does the job. Can use company credentials to setup and access the account for SecurID. Easy to setup and implement. Doesn't have a high learning curve.

Using it very frequently, it's important that its straight forward and I do not have to go through unnecessary hoops to achieve something seemingly simple. Can setup using the company credentials and do not have to setup up a separate account. Setup was fast and easy. GUI is very straight forward and quick.

Ease of use from the user perspective. There is a very small learning curve involved from the deployment perspective. However, none is required from the user perspective. It's auto integration with other Google products like Gsuite not only provided our team the ability to deploy in a matter of hours but also brought down the operation cost of the product. The application is also backed by google ISO security standards which are necessary for ISO security compliant companies.

Their support for onboarding and set-up is quite good. The only issues we tend to have are obtaining new user devices. These need to be planned ahead of time.

Alternatives Considered

Google Authenticator

I was using a miscellaneous one from the app store that I can't find listed here, but decided to switch because the one I had would glitch a lot and not update in real-time, so I would sometimes lock myself out of the program I was trying to get into. Google Authenticator is fast and easy.

And also Google Authenticator that TrustRadius does not have on their database. Both are good but not excellent. SecureID felt like the best option because it is solid and has proven to be the best option for more than 20 years. The other options were confusing and offer things that we don't need.

Return on Investment

Google Authenticator

  • It's making it harder for hackers to get into our systems, saving us money.
  • We need to spend more time on authentication.
  • All in all an important tool to secure our business. Can't put a number on it but it can potentially be a lot.
Christopher Fritz | TrustRadius Reviewer

RSA SecurID Suite

  • Implementing RSA SecurID has allowed us to help our clients understand we are committed to compliance.
  • Implementing RSA SedcurID has, however, negatively impacted employee productivity. Employees need to be aware of the additional steps they need to take to authenticate to a protected system.
  • RSA SecurID has helped us with our compliance audits.
