Overall Satisfaction with RSA SecurID

I am currently using RSA SecurID to provide two-factor authentication when connecting to my laptop, as well as servers and web applications. It is being used all across the company and helps increase security by providing a second factor for authentication.
  • The soft token allows for multiple tokens within a single application
  • Temporary tokens are easy to issue users when a token is lost
  • Configuring a server to use RSA SecurID for a second factor is simple and straightforward.
  • The Android application cannot be easily returned to the original code (if you chose to move to the next code).
  • If misconfigured, it can lock an administrator out of a server.
  • The look and feel of the RSA control center status bar application have a dated feel.
  • Increased security helps reduce the likelihood of breaches and the associated losses.
  • Simple administration helps reduce the staff time and cost involved with lost tokens.
  • Increased compliance helps ensure that the company is eligible to bid more contracts.
RSA SecurID and Azure Multi-Factor Authentication both integrate with authentication on multiple operating systems and SaaS providers. RSA SecurID seems to integrate (at least while I have used it), with more software solutions than Azure Multi-Factor Authentication though.
RSA SecurID is well suited for any situation where a company is looking to implement multifactor authentication, whether the company has an internal push to increase security or are adding multifactor authentication to satisfy a particular compliance framework.
