Overall Satisfaction with Google Authenticator

Google Authenticator is being used across the entire company as a multi-factor authenticator.

Pros

  • Google Authenticator: easy deployment and integration with different platforms and applications.
  • Ease of use from the user perspective.
  • Backed by Google security and ISO compliance.

Cons

  • Ability to import and save barcodes.
  • Missing the ability to copy the code and use it within the different mobile apps within the specified time frame.
  • Ability for administrators to push the code and manage user support.
  • Google authenticator ease of integration within our infrastructure was a really positive point.
  • Ease of use with little learning curve involved when it came to deployment and end-user experience.
  • When bundled up with Google G-suite, the operating/licensing cost also decreased.
The organization running on G-suite and other Google applications will have seamless integration with Google Authenticator. When bundled up with g-suite the operation costs also decrease, giving an advantage over its competitors. The Google Authenticator can easily be integrated with other platforms as well. Recently they launched a new feature where they are integrating it further within your Gmail/Google account to eliminate the need of having a separate application to manage your codes.
Ease of use from the user perspective. There is a very small learning curve involved from the deployment perspective. However, none is required from the user perspective. It's auto integration with other Google products like Gsuite not only provided our team the ability to deploy in a matter of hours but also brought down the operation cost of the product. The application is also backed by google ISO security standards which are necessary for ISO security compliant companies.

Yes

Did Google Authenticator live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Google Authenticator go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Google Authenticator again?

Yes

Google Authenticator is very well suited for an organization using G-suite and Android platforms. It has full integration with IOS platforms as well. It is least appropriate if you are using Google Authenticator to authenticate on an app on the same platform. With limited code expiry timer, it usually times out before you authenticate on other applications on the same device.
