AuthPoint Review from a SMB MSP View

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • AuthPoint works well with how the MFA process works, setting it up for push, OTP, QR code is excellent for our needs.
  • AuthPoint provides any easy to use interface for deployment needs for new clients.
  • There have been some issues we've had with deployment, for instance, removing a PC from the domain then does not let you log in as a local user - this is more of an inconvenience considering this application should be removed prior to domain removal (lesson learned).
  • Have noticed some times the push requests are slow to come through and the timeout period needs to be adjusted to make sure you can log in - not huge impact.

A long overdue solution.

Pros and Cons

  • The AuthPoint Cloud Dashboard Streamlines the implementation of MFA across multiple platforms.
  • As a Managed IT Services company, it is a huge time savings, that all AuthPoint clients can easily be managed for a single logon to the WatchGuard cloud.
  • Although the management dashboard is not difficult to work with once you learn your way around. However, it is far from intuitive.
  • The documentation is disjointed and at times very difficult to follow. For example, acronyms are used extensively in the AuthPoint Quick start Guide. Many of these acronyms are not clearly explained and assume the user has a relatively high level of preexisting knowledge.

AuthPoint - The future for MSPs that deploy MFA

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Multi-tenant Management
  • Simplicity to deploy
  • License procurement process could use some work for clients who are existing in the cloud portal. If you don't manually create the client in the cloud portal you are unable to assign licenses from Master provider account.
  • Needs some work on allowing the ability to MFA certain users on certain products, but not all users. Most AuthPoint integrations currently only support an all-or-nothing scenario.

Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • Most customers like the availability of OTP, Push, or QR Codes.
  • They can use AuthPoint App for other tokens.
  • It has all the features that I find useful and they added hardware tokens as well.
  • They could change the logon app. It caused a bit of confusion when installing.

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

Pros and Cons

  • WatchGuard Authpoint's push notifications are really easy to use
  • Migrating 3rd party tokens was really easy when getting a new mobile device
  • The online portal seems a little confusing - specific pre-requisites seem like they could be removed or resolved differently, i.e., having the windows username match the username in WatchGuard AuthPoint.

Pros and Cons

  • Integrated with WatchGuard firewalls.
  • Integrates with Active Directory.
