Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard AuthPoint

The company's insurance provider required them to have some 2FA in place to protect them. I worked with the company and provided a solid solution for WatchGuard AuthPoint. The customer was happy with how easy it was to use and get their team on board and using this product. Once AuthPoint was implemented the customer has not had any issues with employees logging in at all.
  • The product is very easy to set up. This took less than two hours to implement.
  • We were able to assist get the users all set up and onboard using the product in less than 20 minutes for their users.
  • The phone app for this is very easy to use and was free.
  • While the set up was easy to do the instructions could use a little more details.
  • It would be useful to be able to tell how many users are at the firewall level instead of going out to the cloud to look for it.
  • The customer's insurance company is happy as is the customer.
  • This was so easy to get all their users using 2FA in almost no time at all.
We chose AuthPoint as it was so easy for our customer and their ROI. They already have a WatchGuard firewall so all we needed to do was get them hooked up into AuthPoint which was very easy and fast to do under their current timeline. This was implemented in less than two days total.
The company was easily able to get their users set up using the cloud set up and they are very happy with managing this product via the cloud. They have found that it was very easy to add and remove users and license counts.
This company's employees were very pleased with the AuthPoint app as it was very easy for them to install, set up, and use every time they need to log into their VPN. The users are not allowed to choose if they use this or not as that is a requirement of the customer.

For anyone needing 2FA at a firewall level, this is a great product. I would look more into the licensing aspect of this as I had to set this up in a hurry for a customer and I was not able to look into this too much. I really can not think of any reason it would be less appropriate to use this product if you need 2FA.
