WatchGuard AuthPoint Mobile Token

During the process of assigning a token to a user, an email is automatically sent via Watchguard Cloud with all the necessary steps on how to install the mobile application and how to activate the token. It's quite intuitive and easy and the users can validate the token without support.

WatchGuard AuthPoint Simplicity

Things did not use to be that simple at all, when WatchGuard AuthPoint was used with the SSL VPN connections on the WatchGuard Fireboxes. One would have to setup a radius server on a domain controller and pass all the connection traffic between the Firebox and AuthPoint through an Authentication …

WatchGuard AuthPoint Mobile Token

Most users did like the extra security the mobile token offered. There were of course a few users that complained about the extra steps needed, but this is really to be expected on any such change. Overall we would consider the reception by our users to be more than positive.

WatchGuard AuthPoint SSO Portal

We have not used the Access Portal yet, but plan to do so in the future. So we have no experiences about it so far, but we expect this to be as smooth as the migration to the SSL VPN authentication via WatchGuard AuthPoint. However the aim here is to make access more secure. we do not expect any …

WatchGuard AuthPoint Mobile Token

We are technicians and so for us, the access method is easy. In my opinion, end users are easy too because today is normal to have installed almost one authenticator on own smartphone for internet banking access. WatchGuard AuthPoint has the same simplicity.

WatchGuard AuthPoint Mobile Token

It is really a lifesaver. Push authentification is so much easier to use than our previous solution which required pins to be synchronized and entered. This saves a lot of time in training and support. Our users can focus on their work and less time is spent on support.

WatchGuard AuthPoint SSO Portal

We have not implemented SSO but we will probably look at it eventually. It is nice to see that it is available and that we can leverage this functionality if we ever decide to implement it.

WatchGuard AuthPoint Mobile Token

It has been well received as it's part of our security posture. Users need to use it for SSLVPN connections, and the App is easy to use. The only issue I have encountered would have been from some users who don't know how to download the App or navigate their smartphone.

WatchGuard AuthPoint SSO Portal

Our users really like this; we have started using it in many places because the implementation has gone really well. As well as roll it into more applications, users are actually asking us to add it to other systems because of the convenience and add security it gives.

WatchGuard AuthPoint Simplicity

It is easier to reset and replace a software token than a hardware token. Purchase is required for Hardware tokens, given the massive delay in the global chain, it is faster to deploy software tokens. It is much more manageable in terms of administration and tracking. WatchGuard AuthPoint does …

WatchGuard AuthPoint SSO Portal

With the combination of WatchGuard AuthPoint and secure SSO, we find that users are no longer required to key in passwords. We have set it up in a way whereby only the MFA is required which is ever-changing. Some users find it a hassle at the start, most users appreciate the need not to remember …

WatchGuard AuthPoint Simplicity

The cloud solution is great. We use a WatchGuard firewall and integrated it with the cloud but there are so many small things you have to configure to make it work.

WatchGuard AuthPoint Mobile Token

This was our first MFA solution. There was a little learning curve for all users. The best thing is that it allows push notifications which everyone loves. It also supports OTP. We also use the WatchGuard login client that asks for MFA code to login into the computer. On a few occasions, the user …

Benefited yes, because we just log into the system and administer it. That access still makes me nervous because of basic hacking. Someone will be able to get into it and mess with our systems, and that's just the nature of cloud work. I hope the pendulum swings back soon to make it feel more …

WatchGuard AuthPoint Mobile Token

Nobody complained. They all have this feature in their banks and healthcare systems so it wasn't new. The app was installed correctly the first time and no one has needed any tech support to use it. They do complain a bit about how it doesn't always seem to be timed right. You can get the alert …

WatchGuard AuthPoint Simplicity

We have a local firebox and if that isn't working then the VPM isn't working and as such MFA doesn't matter. So having this in the cloud vs on the WatchGuard device has zero benefits for us. In fact, it would have been preferred to just have it in WSM and not have to build out a cloud connection.

WatchGuard AuthPoint Mobile Token

They have zero choices in complying. So it hasn't changed anything or improved it. If anything they complain about having to have a working app on their personal phone.Though I'm sure if they had to carry a keyfob they would lose that or complain about having to carry that too.

WatchGuard AuthPoint Simplicity

We can access the administrative console whether in the office, on mobile, or at home. This is beneficial when a user may have an issue so we can review the portal to see if everything is set up correctly. Typically, new users wait too long to verify the activation email that is sent so there are …

To be honest, it's easier to implement MS 365 SSO to third-party applications than using WatchGuard AuthPoint. I am not saying WatchGuard AuthPoint is not good, but user normally remembers their email passwords, so it makes it easier to implement it using MS 365 SSO and combine it with the native …

WatchGuard AuthPoint Simplicity

While it's designed as a cloud service which certainly makes it easier to manage from anywhere, we needed to install a gateway on an on-premises server to connect the WatchGuard AuthPoint cloud service with our LDAP directory. The gateway software is lightweight and hasn't impacted server …
