Chose WatchGuard AuthPoint
WatchGuard AuthPoint is less expensive than most competitors, easier to manage through WatchGuard Cloud, and the MFA solutions is rock solid and secure. We do not worry about vulnerabilities with WatchGuard AuthPoint.
Chose WatchGuard AuthPoint
AuthPoint was acquired at a much lower price point than similar competing products. Let's face it, price is king, especially when you need to increase security without a real budget. AuthPoint was also easy to integrate using the same vendor and support techs from the firewall …
Chose WatchGuard AuthPoint
Duo locked me out of domain controller.
Chose WatchGuard AuthPoint
AuthPoint was easier to evaluate and implement into our existing network. We had a tight deadline and was able configure test and deploy AuthPoint with minimal user interruptions. Okta has more features and other forms of authentication that we will reevaluate in the future, …
Chose WatchGuard AuthPoint
It is only worth purchasing because of the cheap price and integration with WatchGuard VPN. The downside in trying to test a MFA product is having to configure your products (Tableau Online, Office365) to use it and therefore all users immediately will have issues unless using …
Chose WatchGuard AuthPoint
WatchGuard AuthPoint integrates with the WatchGuard firewalls and works well with our overall offering. Where possible, we want to minimize the number of different vendors we have to master and implement without sacrificing functionality or security. Watchguard AuthPoint (and …
Chose WatchGuard AuthPoint
They have similar features, although the other solutions seem to have additional integrations with other products. However, we already use other WatchGuard products, which we like, and when it came down to pricing there was no comparison. Other solutions were 2-5 times the …

User Testimonials

Likelihood to Recommend
Okta
We have been extremely pleased with how Okta has increased our security posture. We had an immediate need to implement MFA for our organization. We have over 30 companies under our umbrella and we were able to implement Okta in a short time with relative ease. As you can imagine, having that many companies offers unique challenges because each company isn't a carbon copy of the others. Okta offered us the granularity needed to tailor the implementation for all of our lines of business. We have a relatively small IT Department for the number of companies/employees we have. Despite the limited resources in IT, we are able to get Okta going quickly and have been very pleased with the software.

It's well suited for large and medium-sized companies looking to increase their security and comply with local regulations. Smaller companies probably wouldn't see the same benefit because the cost of convenience wouldn't be as attractive. Anyone handling credit card information, medical information, or secure customer information could greatly benefit from this solution.

Pros
Okta
  • RBAC is simple, straight forward and easy to manage
  • Integrations of Social Login are simple to configure and the Auth0 documentation shows step by step how to configure it
  • Rules/Hooks provide customization to the Auth0 flow, making it a great solution to define how we allow our users to login into our applications

  • Works well with the free Authpoint client and the OpenVPN clinet.
  • Token management is simple and hosted completely in the cloud to reduce overall complexity
  • Setup was simple and and staighforward
  • Suppports several authentication methods we have used both RADIUS and SAML effectively, but ADFS, IDP, RDWeb, and RESTful API, and other custom apps are supported.
  • Geofencing for RDP has been very useful as it is independant of our firewall geofencing. This is quite useful for organizations like us who do not Geofence at at the firewall level so as to provide global access to resources on the DMZ.

Cons
Okta
  • The user interface of Okta is basic and needs improvement. There's some learning curve for new users.
  • One time integration effort is high for the initial setup. Took us around 3 weeks.
  • Okta times out pretty quick making us login multiple times in the day.

  • Integration with on-premise AD is not working, even after speaking with the support team, it could not get resolved. There is no better documentation on this topic as well
  • Integration with Azure AD is not supported without the presence of on-prem AD
  • Logs information is not precious, it provides a generic code in some cases, making it harder to troubleshoot.
  • The Watchguard AuthPoint App in AppStore has some issues, after it's activated there is no approval request being sent to the phone, and there is no way to troubleshoot this, the only way to make it work is by uninstalling the app and reinstalling it again.

Okta has a passion to provide secure and scalable identity solution. Their passion has come across as advocacy in a way that has deepened my knowledge of the field of authentication. I took identity for granted before but after seeing features such as external authentication I know that Okta can enable my business to reach new heights

Today to ensure our ISO 27001 certification it is important that we maintain this solution. Today it is part of the way any employee within the organization works, we no longer have any other way of working and it is the simplest way to ensure that access to the workstation is done with MFA.

Usability
Okta
Some of its features are great and some are slightly complex and not easy without vendor support.

WatchGuard Technologies
After initial setup, it practically runs itself. Onboarding new users is fast and easy as it should be. The AuthPoint mobile app is small and simple to use. The only reason I do not give it a 10 is that I frequently get complaints from end users that the AuthPoint app is "constantly downloading". In fact, it's not downloading anything and that what the users are seeing in the app is a timer for the 6-digit code that changes every minute.

Reliability and Availability
Okta
The Okta Identity Cloud advertises 4 9's of reliability and I would go as far to say that it may even do better than that. As a true Global organization that operates in just about every region of the world, we have yet to have an issue with The Okta Identity Cloud that has impacted our business operations.

Performance
Okta
The Okta Identity Cloud performance is very good and there is never any reports from the user community or from the IT administrative team of slow response or sluggishness. In addition, integrations with other systems does not slow them down and everything works seamlessly. The only other feedback is that once in a while there is a slight delay in receiving a second factor on a mobile device but this is likely due to a phone endpoint issue and not the The Okta Identity Cloud service.

Support Rating
Okta
There isn't a clear method to get a hold of support when trouble arises if you're on their standard plan. You can file a support ticket and they generally are responsive. I've often been able to find similar questions to the questions I've had when it comes to support in their ticket history, however, some have been closed without a satisfactory conclusion for the original poster.

WatchGuard support is always quick and reliable. They have urgency levels that you are able to select when creating your support ticket, and they respond in accordance to the severity that you have set. I have never had an issue with getting someone on the phone in the same business day, even for very low priority issues.

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
Okta
With respective to user interface and license cost, we thought The Okta Identity Cloud was better than other tools for use. Their customization of license was another reason for us to go with The Okta Identity Cloud over other tools.

I would slot Authpoint as better than ESET but not Duo. ESET has the same limitations as Watchguard in the OTP support. It also is an on-prem installed console rather than a cloud, which increases cost and maintenance requirements. The duo now supports standard OTP for admin accounts, so it can be managed by a team.

Scalability
Okta
Being a cloud native application, The Okta Identity Cloud is extremely scalable and easy to setup. By integrating into existing directories and applications via standard techniques and protocols, it is very easy to both initially setup and add additional users as required. Once all the necessary integrations are setup, it's a simple rinse and repeat process to onboard additional users (which can be automated with imports as well)

  • Our end uses found this product very easy to use. Using one overview session, I have not had to follow up with users to access the product.
  • Once deployed, other users in our environment heard about the ease of use. We then had a 25% increase in requests for the product.
  • This product has added to the overall satisfaction of users having to work offsite, attend conferences and other travel while still being able to stay connected to their work product.
