What is WatchGuard AuthPoint?

WatchGuard AuthPoint is a multi-factor authentication (MFA) service that helps companies keep their assets, information, and user identities secure. Multi-factor authentication solutions can enable organizations to close security gaps that leave companies vulnerable to breaches by adding a layer of security beyond just a username and password – without creating a disruptive user experience. AuthPoint’s mobile app makes it easy for users to approve or deny login attempts, according to the vendor, with just a single touch right from their smartphone. WatchGuard’s AuthPoint solution is managed via the Cloud, meaning there’s no expensive hardware to deploy, and can be managed from anywhere using WatchGuard Cloud’s intuitive interface.

  • Secure your mobile work force against lost or stolen passwords.
  • All users have full control over VPN passwords and IT are not required to reset them.
  • The ease of use of the AuthPoint software on Mobile is liked by our less technical staff.
  • The initial setup of AuthPoint is a little tricky. I hear there is a Beta coming that should make this easier and I look forward to it.
  • Having to switch between the web interface and and the WatchGuard System Manager to access everything I need could be improved and unified.

  • VPN 2fa/mfa secure login
  • Single-Signon thru AuthPoint portal to other cloud apps
  • On prem authentications using the AuthPoint MFA app.
  • Some of our agings deployed firewalls require additional setups and AuthPoint is not fully baked into - but is not totally wrong in that new features require new hardware at times.
  • While the setup process when knowledgeable of it is easy enough, I think some of the steps can pull you thru a little better thru the wizard. Overall though, the online KB and videos are extremely good.
  • The MFA token is only sold in a 10 pack. Was wishing it can be purchased in single units as it now means we need to purchase single 3rd party tokens (only when a user does not want to use the free AuthPoint mobile app).
