AuthPoint Review from a SMB MSP View

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

WatchGuard AuthPoint is well suited for environments that need MFA but not necessarily physical tokens. [It's] The overall cheapest solution I can find on the market and a great product for any size company to provide an additional layer of security without a huge commitment in costs. With the ease of deployment, many companies could have this up and running with just reading the knowledge base articles and would not need a dedicated staff IT employee to get this added security setup for their organization.

WatchGuard AuthPoint is an excellent addition to the SSL Mobile VPN allowing the addition of MFA. Recently, we have seen banks that use the Mobile SSL VPN for remote access without MFA flagged for non-compliance. If a WatchGuard firewall is already in place, the addition of AuthPoint enables a business to quickly and easily meet the MFA requirements.

Cloud-hosted electronic health record solutions have become the norm. Unfortunately, this has changed the scope of security ePHI. AuthPoint is a great aid in preventing staff from attempting to inappropriately access ePHI. I have worked with several small medical practices that use EHR systems that lack the ability to impose and significant endpoint controls. Sadly, I am aware of several instances where staff members have attempted to inappropriately access ePHI from outside the medical practice. By implementing AuthPoint and only installing the mobile app on practice controlled devices, this issue can effectively be addressed. If the safe locations are configured for the medical practice, AuthPoint can be implemented with virtually no impact on the uses.

No solution is perfect and on the negative side, much of my business is done in rural areas with less than spectacular cellular coverage. Although it hasn't been a significant issue, push notifications can be delayed. This isn't necessarily a show stopper, but to less technically savvy users, it can be a source of angst.

A great solution whether it is for single use case or multiple, like Cloud App integration. This product really shines when you start to use it across multiple platforms. It's easy to use and maintain, and is fairly reliable.

WatchGuard AuthPoint works great to lockdown remote access for corporate networks. The IDP login portal also make SSO integration to common applications easy.

If you are like us and service other clients, it does not work as a method to verify users' identity. It would be great to add the feature like Duo has to verify identity for support teams.

Recommended Scenarios:
  • Client looking for basic MFA deployment that can be AD integrated
  • Client looking for a MFA product that works with legacy devices/ authentication methods
  • MSP looking for a MFA product that can be easily managed by a Service Desk

Not recommended Scenario:
  • If you have MFA deployed to various SAML resources, but want to be in control in exactly who and what gets MFA

AuthPoint MFA: A winning solution

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

A user's credentials can be phished. The only way a user won't give up his credentials is if he doesn't know them. It is essential to not expose your company to hackers through phishing, vishing, or smishing. They have even taken precautions to ensure that the hacker can't clone the user's phone and still be able to access the app.

Securing our traveling agents access to the local network is not only a good idea but increasingly being required by financial regulatory organizations such as FINRA, the SEC and New York State. Combined with mobile-device management, we can get a better "top-down" view of who is attempting to access our network and the means behind it. By quickly removing a user from an AuthPoint AD group, access can be instantly prevented when mobile devices are reported lost or stolen.

AuthPoint for Everyone

AuthPoint is very admin and user friendly. Someone gets a new phone it is easy to re-setup. The ability for the APP to replace other APPs so the end users doesn’t have multiple MFA APPs on their phones. The settings for group management are easy to control, and that it is cloud based for management is even better.

If you don't have MFA, you're doing it wrong. Do it right with AuthPoint.

Works well in the usual office scenarios, I haven't had much occasion to use the offline authentication with the QR Code, but when I did need it, it worked well. One situation that it could improve is by supporting/integrating with hardware authentication tokens. This may be counter to the whole "Multiple factor" concept, but we have lots of users that are asking for password-less sign-in select situations (exam rooms, etc.)

AuthPoint - a great MFA/SSO solution!

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

1. It’s well-suited for scenarios where you’d like to implement workstation/server MFA/2FA solutions.

2. It’s well-suited for scenarios where you’d like SAML or SSO capabilities along with MFA/2FA, so long as it falls within it’s (growing) list of compatible sites and services.

3. It’s well-suited for the “zero trust” security framework where users can be given access only to the products, solutions, or devices they should have access to, as you can create those groups, including auto-enrollment in groups based on Active Directory membership.

WatchGuard AuthPoint First Implementation Review

Based on my experience with WatchGuard AuthPoint, it is best suited for Office365 scenarios where calendar and mailbox sharing is not present. It functions well for Windows Logon and SSL VPN protections. I have not tested with other SAML based applications yet, so I cannot speak to its functionality there.

If you use WatchGuard as a Firewall and security appliance, using this is a no-brainer. It seamlessly integrates with remote access and is simple to deploy. Support is great if you have any issues with deployment or post deployment. Their response time is great, and they are always willing to help out.
