Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard AuthPoint

We use this to provide 2FA for network, firewall, email, VPN, and servers. More and more insurance companies are requiring multi factor authentication for high risk accounts and remote or online accounts. AuthPoint can protect all types of accounts and allows for integration with various authentication methods. Every client today needs multi factor authentication and AuthPoint is a great easy solution to integrate. If you have a Watchguard firewall it’s even better.
  • Fast
  • Secure
  • Great integrations
  • Integrates with firewall
  • Exchange server is hard to integrate with
  • The mobile interface looks like it’s loading something. This sometimes confuses staff.
  • Although possible to integrate with almost anything. Some are easier than others. O364 is a little tough.
  • Helps protect your users and endpoints.
  • Security. It helps a lot with reducing stolen credentials.
  • Translates into better sleep at night because your account can’t be compromised without the second factor.
Duo is a great alternative however we chose to go with AuthPoint because we were already using other products from Watchguard including the firewall, DNS filter and it uses the same cloud dashboard like the other products. From my understanding Duo has much better integration with M365 but I also wanted to have integration with the local on-prem equipment.

Would you buy WatchGuard AuthPoint again?


Watchguard AuthPoint works well for securing VPN on Watchguard firewalls and windows computers. It works well on any SAML authentication as well as M365. It doesn’t work well with the Microsoft Exchange server 2013. I wanted to set this up on an exchange server but you need a bigger firewall to act as a reverse proxy for that scenario. I would say it’s less appropriate
