RSA SecurID allows me to access network files from remote locations (hotels, other businesses, working from home). This allows me greater productivity and helps me with a work-life balance as I can work later at night or not get so backed up when I'm traveling.
RSA SecurID keeps information secure by limiting access to network files
RSA SecurID is easy to use with a soft token - one less item to carry around in my travel bag
The authentication of two factors allows the non-repudiation of the authorship of the company's emails, which serves to be used as electronic documentation before the local authorities
Access from the outside to the company network is always a double-edged sword if proper security measures are not taken, and the RSA SecurID allows a level of trust and non-repudiation for employees' VPN connections.
The company uses several other security technologies, but the practicality and ease of SecurID to add new users makes it definitely the best option as an authentication tool.
UI is concise and simple. Required buttons are right in front and avoid any ambiguity. Surprised at how minimal of the screen space it uses.
Fast! Never had a problem in waiting for a pin number to be generated. Even has a copy button cause well more often than not you will be using that function.
From a security point of view each pin generated times out in 60 seconds, which is good in my opinion.
Setup was also pretty easy. As a software developer understanding new software is not a personal challenge. However from a unbiased perspective it is pretty straight forward for even people who are not as good with technology.
I've been a user for more than 18 years. Started with a little square like a pocket calculator, then a dongle, a smaller dongle, and the phone app. RSA is always improving so I'm pretty satisfied with the service.
The primary strength of RSA SecurID is that the product requires a randomly generated pass code which expires every 60 seconds.
A second strength is that the RSA SecurID random pass code generator software is available in the following formats: 1) Software which can be installed on a desktop/laptop computer, 2) Software app which can be installed on a mobile phone/tablet, 3) a pocket sized hardware device.
A third strength is how seemlessly the RSA SecurID system integrates with other software vendors' remote access systems such as Citrix.
The user interface for the software tool RSA SecurID support staff uses to administer the product looks like a 16 bit Windows application from the early 1990s. This creates an unnecessary learning curve for younger support staff who are less familiar with this dated look.
The software tool RSA SecurID support staff uses to administer the product does not provide clear and simple error messages to help staff troubleshoot normal SecurID operating issues.
The RSA SecurID administration tool should be available as an app for mobile devices such as phones and tablets.
The RSA SecurID Suite is an identity management, authentication and user provisioning offering supported by EMC's security division, RSA. The SecurID Suite includes SecurID Access 2FA and multi-factor authentication solutions and RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle products.
