As an added security layer for a remote VPN scenario in a small office, WatchGuard AuthPoint does its job as well as can be expected. It gives a good variety of options for token authentication and has a relatively simple client set up.

I don't know how well it would scale to a larger deployment than a dozen or so users, however.

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.

If a user is concerned about the system's security, we should use MFA, as that will prevent incidents where a second layer of security is cracked. However, sometimes, signing in multiple times a day becomes irritative.

AuthPoint is ideal for integration with anything that supports RADIUS such as VPN and SAML such as applications. AuthPoint is also well suited for Windows / RDS login. AuthPoint provides a very good solution for SSO. AuthPoint makes a good solutions for password managements for users with basic password management requirements.
AuthPoint is not well suited for users that need a advanced password management solution.

In my humble opinion, WatchGuard AuthPoint is well suited for any type of company, no matter the size of business. It integrates perfectly with infrastructure that already have other WatchGuard products deployed. But I am not sure how will it play when the case is the contrary. With other security products in place, perhaps it requires more admin/installation effort.

WatchGuard AuthPoint does work well for the authentication of SSL VPN users, as well as our NextCloud user authentication. It will probably also work fine if set up to be used for the user authentication on the Access Portal of the Firebox. It could probably also be used for other remote access scenarios like Citrix remote clients and so on. Windows login security can also be greatly improved when Authpoint is used with it. We are also looking into this scenario at the time.

We provide it to our customers when they need to use VPN to connect to their network and this solution improved security since you need to provide your username, password and confirm a push notification or with a OTP from your own device as a mobile phone with AuthPoint app and the token. If you don't want to use a mobile phone it's possible to you hardware token

AuthPoint is the obvious choice if you already have a WatchGuard edge device, particularly if using it for VPN endpoint. I have not tried implementing it for other services, although it has this capability, but if I didn't already have a WG techstack, I would look at other alternatives to protect non-WatchGuard services.

AuthPoint is well suited and reccomended for big companies that need to monitor authentications. AuthPoint allows companies to manage and ckeck user authentications with hardware tokens and software tokens or directly from the mobile app.
It would be less appropriate for single users because it would be rather pointless as there wouldn't be the necessity of checking a lot of authentications, while in large companies AuthPoint even if there are many users, it is still very simple, clear and understandable.

I only have experience with Authpoint 2fa. It is very well suited to any company that needs to add 2fa to VPN connections, which is industry standard at this point. It is less appropriate for things that do not require 2fa, or else have another 2fa that already exists currently

Watchguard Authpoint is well suited to both small and large companies and scales well. It can be adapted to a number of token delivery methods, and mutliple methods (Push, QR code, OTP) can be used simultaneously to support users in different authentication contexts. The geokinetics function allows for real control of international travelers distinguishing them from random individuals using stolen credentials in random remote locations.

I recently had the opportunity to explore WatchGuard AuthPoint, and I must say, it stands out as a robust and user-friendly authentication solution. Any company that has a need for MFA, this is a great product. It is very easy to manage users and create and remove tokens for each account. If you are familiar with Active directory, it syncs seamlessly with all your users.

Watchguard Authpoint is perfect for a small to medium sized business looking to secure their user logon experience to systems and applications.

It is also ideal for a user base that is not computer savvy or comfortable with Technology.

The Watchguard Authpoint is always used by us on every single one of our Watchguard deployments. We use the Firebox as our standard for the vast majority of our customers, as well as in our own offices. This product allows for the easy deployment, reliability, security, and customization we demand from every solution we implement. The user friendly app makes it a great solution for all users in an organization regardless of technical skill level. Security is paramount, but users have to WANT to comply. Some similar apps on the market make it more challenging or intimidating for some users.

WatchGuard AuthPoint isn't useful if you want to secure your on-premises servers or client computers. You can use it to provide an additional security layer for logging in on a PC. But if you already are logged in, you can't authenticate with two-factor for tasks that need admin privileges (UAC in Windows). It is very useful for logging in on websites that support two-factor, like Facebook, WordPress, or programs like Battle.net. It's also very useful to secure your mobile user VPNs.

the AuthPoint MFA allow for increased security the following Remote access - easy to link to WatchGuard devices to set up remote access, providing an extra layer of protection when logging in. Also easy to use to control RDP to workstations or server, again providing an extras layer of security to the Logon. Having the mobile phone authentication allows end user to have something as well as know something .

It is easy to set up and use when you want to protect a customer from external access with Multi Factor Authentication. When you have a WatchGuard as a firewall it is easy and possible to connect the WatchGuard directly to AuthPoint. It also connects with Azure AD if you have a customer which doesn't have an on-premise server.
