  • You can use it to connect to VPN by setting up WatchGuard firewall
  • You can deploy it with Citrix Storefront to connect to your infrastructure
  • You can also use it to login to your own pc with Windows 10 or 11
  • It's easy to setup it on a cloud console but there isn't a wizard procedure
  • You can't use it almost everywhere as Microsoft Authenticator or Google Authenticator
  • You can't use it for all operating system

  • Simple MFA deployment on VPNs
  • Active directory integration for more complex deployments / lower admin overhead after implementation
  • Ability to deploy with user id DB in cloud for smaller / simpler deployments
  • Have had issues where Firebox comes "disconnected" from the cloud, which results in VPN functionality outage
  • Mobile app does not always provide push notifications, even with sufficient device permissions - We train users to open the app when attempting to auth
  • I am not sure if 3rd party authenticators are supported, possible they are and I'm unaware, but this would be a nice feature, occasionally receive objections to installation on personal devices

  • Works well with the free Authpoint client and the OpenVPN clinet.
  • Token management is simple and hosted completely in the cloud to reduce overall complexity
  • Setup was simple and and staighforward
  • Suppports several authentication methods we have used both RADIUS and SAML effectively, but ADFS, IDP, RDWeb, and RESTful API, and other custom apps are supported.
  • Geofencing for RDP has been very useful as it is independant of our firewall geofencing. This is quite useful for organizations like us who do not Geofence at at the firewall level so as to provide global access to resources on the DMZ.
  • Authpoint can integrate with other vendors firewalls, but this is not easily set up. The company could provide better support when customers who need to use a firewall from a third party vendor.
  • The Authpoint native desktop client can fail and need it processes killed at the OS level. At time only a restart can restore functionality. This occurs on about .05% of the connections
  • Thought the actual setup is fairly simple the documentation is mediocre.

  • Can manage multiple SAMLs and other services that support two-factor authentication--one app for many services.
  • WatchGuard AuthPoint can be used for many or all services from WatchGuard appliances.
  • The software is useful for companies that have already WatchGuard products in use but also for someone who only wants a fast and secure token for securing web logins.
  • Authentication on Windows servers and PC.
  • Management is confusing if you never worked with WatchGuard Cloud.

  • Ease of implementation
  • App compatibility even on older smartphones
  • Used with watchguard firewalls, it would be useful to have a multiple user creation system.
  • With some phone carriers, there is some latency, between logging in and the appearance of push confirmation on the app.

  • Fast, easy to use.
  • Watchguard is highly respected and credible with cyber insurers
  • Flexible configurations
  • Secure
  • Installation was a difficult because we have another Watchguard appliance (Firebox) and it conflicted with account credentials.
  • Help and support was lacking. We were assigned someone in Europe that was not online when we were. Also reaching WatchGuard was difficult. Companies should not insulate themselves from customers.
  • A bit expensive.
