  • 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.
  • The cloud-based 2FA needs improvement in terms of ease of management and performance.
  • There are some issues that have been reported by our team using MobilePASS authentication.

  • Token/time-based authentication
  • Standard admin console which is user friendly
  • Hard tokens
  • Secure-ID only provides token - additional tools are required for password
  • RADIUS encryption configuration is lacking
  • Support is difficult to obtain

  • 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.
  • I really have no complaints about the tool, because I know its limitations and the best application scenarios.
  • As for improving, maybe you could improve with biometric authentication in the software token.

  • The soft token allows for multiple tokens within a single application
  • Temporary tokens are easy to issue users when a token is lost
  • Configuring a server to use RSA SecurID for a second factor is simple and straightforward.
  • 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.

  • It is simple to use, and quick. Each user is assigned a 4-digit pin that goes before the sequence of numbers that changes frequently.
  • The life span of securID's battery is very long. in the 3 years that i have been using my fob, i have had no issues at all.
  • I have never had to contact any IT/help desk for any issues.
  • Have not had any difficulties with this... I have no feedback, fortunately

  • It secures one's identity by enabling a secure password/passcode that comprises of something they know (PIN) and something they have (SecurID token).
  • Two factor authentication is always important as the reasons like stolen passwords are increasingly becoming serious causes for identity theft
  • On the other hand, the un-crackable algorithm that EMC has built into RSA SecurID tokens, fills confidence in people that their identity is never stolen
  • It is quite a bit difficult to pull out usage statistics of RSA SecurID tokens and its users from archived logs.
  • In the name of security, a few things like automated user creations and other user/token manipulations have been made a little complex when compared to its older version like 6.1 & 7.1
  • Database migration with users (on-Demand-token users) from its older version to 8.x is a big hassle, could have been better if the complexity is eliminated

  • 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.
  • Maybe the token name displayed can be modified a little bit. Although it may not be done that often, hovering over it and waiting for it to appear is a minor nuance.`
  • Add an option of dynamically resizing the GUI. No major flaws come to mind.

  • 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 hard token worked, but it was one more thing to carry (and possibly lose) in my travel bag - plus another PIN # to remember

  • Management of RSA tokens is pretty user intuitive
  • Fast and reliable report building, useful for metrics and information
  • Managing the connections and software itself is a bit confusing
  • Profiles for trusted realms has still not been explained satisfactorily after reaching out to support multiple times to grasp this concept

  • Easy to implement with other vendor solutions.
  • Worked well and easily for end users.
  • Multi-platform and phone apps.
  • Implementing it with Windows log in on Windows 8 and 10 is cumbersome and the documentation more than anything could be expanded upon.
  • It would be nice to see an option to use it with Radius to log in to routers and switches.

  • Gives extra security in protecting the unauthorized access to our domain and email.
  • Helps the security administrators in policy enforcement. Even if a user password is weak the SecureID covers our companies back and let us focus on other threats that can harm our security.
  • Our customers feel that their information is well treated and secured rising our credibility and showing the level of commitment our company has in keeping data safe.
  • 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.

  • Flexible platform to access SecureID (Windows, iOS, Android, physical fob, etc).
  • Reliable access. I have never experienced a production outage in the last 4 years which I cannot say for any other technology.
  • Easy to use user interface. We rarely need to provide support on how to use it. Fairly self explanatory.
  • Up to date with latest iOS and Android releases. I had wait for support on Android 7.1.1 for about two months before it was supported.
  • Customizable UI depending on screen size (tablet vs Smartphone).
  • Quicker response for support for admin of internal SecureID server when escalation is needed.

  • Generates random pass codes.
  • All generated pass codes expire within 60 seconds.
  • The app requires a pin number to provide access to the pass codes generator for security purposes.
  • The UI/UX is very simple and can take some more improvement
  • There's a lot of room for improving error messages, esp. when the access PIN is not inserted correctly
  • The app needs to provide a way to reset the access PIN number when forgotten
  • Limiting the number of times a PIN number can inserted with a shown counter to disable any brute-force attacks

  • 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.

  • Provides an easy 2 factor auth for users into a secure environment.
  • Very simple to manage and install, especially within a linux environment.
  • I wish upgrading major versions were an easier task.
  • It would be nice if the RSA app would allow you to accept a 2 factor auth request via the push method.
