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.

Symantec VIP

Symantec VIP is well suited for enterprise institutions, like our own, managing a wide range of devices and wanting to provide their users with an extra layer of security. Being able to have 2-factor authentication with a unique pin was key for us and this would be well suited for any organization that holds sensitive information like, in our case, student records. They have great support and getting issues resolved does not take much time, a quick call to support usually straightens issues out.

Cons

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.

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

RSA SecurID Suite

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.

Symantec VIP

Symantec VIP compares really well to other alternatives but there is no offline token key. This is a features the competitors are starting to offer which makes a difference in the event the user has forgotten their token or there is an issue with the online verification.

Return on Investment

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.
Brandon Holbrook | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec VIP

  • Can connect to our VPN quickly, which helps our users gain access to our local resources remotely even when outside our network.
  • Great support and troubleshooting so implementation was not difficult.
  • Improved our security institution-wide, which leaves us less vulnerable to attacks and sensitive information getting into the wrong hands.
  • Great documentation available for this product so training our IT professionals on how to be admins for this product is not challenging.
