It also connects with Azure AD if you have a customer which doesn't have an on-premise server.

We are an IT company and provide MFA Authpoint to multiple customers, so our total user case is around 100. There also is the possiblity to connect it with SSO applications like Office365 but for now we do not use this.

It was an Onsite demo at the ditributor with the benefits of Watchguard Authpoint. Was very nice to see the abilities of the product. This Demo was a few years back, since then Authpoint changed allot. It is very nice for partners that you can get this demo without any aditional cost.
We use the online training for all our employees. There are both sales and technical trainings available and there even is a technical certification. You can use this for the Watchguard Partner Program which can give you aditional benefits. Every now and then you have a webinar that discusses multiple Watchguard products.
