WatchGuard AuthPoint is the right solution at the right time to make MFA a reality for the businesses who desperately need it to block attacks. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution not only helps to reduce the likelihood of network disruptions and data breaches arising from lost or stolen credentials, but we deliver this important capability entirely from the Cloud for easy set-up and management.

"AuthPoint is awesome, works great, and is easy to use - I was skeptical before I tried it."

What do you like best?

Its easier and faster to login now than it is 'manually'. The app is super simple - just click 'approve' and you are logged in. It has always worked well and never 'glitched'. The price is very affordable - lower than others in the same market, especially if you buy a 3 year term. We've also integrated it with Office 365 and another app we use that works with SAML - the integration guides from WatchGuard are step by step, easy to follow and worked perfectly.

What do you dislike?

Nothing I can find to dislike - I really love this app and it took me by surprise. I was not looking forward to multi-factor because I thought it would be a hassle and not work. This app is rock solid, super easy, and fast.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend AuthPoint - I tired Duo and I find this to be much, much easier. I love it and its worked perfectly for me since day 1. Its been so good its kind of surprised me honestly. You can't go wrong with AuthPoint, its awesome.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

AuthPoint helps us with reducing cyber security risk and improving our compliance with various regulatory requirements. AuthPoint also helps to prevent accidental account lock-outs. AuthPoint protects us from password attacks and makes us more secure generally. AuthPoint protects our cloud apps like Office 365 - we use the SAML integration and now we have secured our O365 from external attackers as well.

"Best MFA for SMB"

What do you like best?

Administrators does not need too much knowledge to manage WatchGuard's MFA product. Ideal solution for small and medium sized enterprises, no hardware requirements. Cloud based management, simple LDAP/AD integration and sync, great user experience with mobile-based token and push-notifications.

What do you dislike?

3rd party hardware tokens are not supported yet as well as MacOS Logon App (Dec/2018). It is also complicated to disable MFA for specific user in case that user forgot his smartphone (for VPN authentication for example). AuthPoint gateway software is supported on Windows platform only.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your are looking for easy to manage MFA solution with low TCO, AuthPoint is a great solution for you. It is easy to setup, easy to manage within WatchGuard Cloud platform and most importantly, easy to use with AuthPoint Mobile App. You can also use AuthPoint as a IdP solution for your SAML integrations, which is great opportunity to secure access to your company's cloud applications, such as Salesforce, O365, Dropbox etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company is Value-Add Distributor and many people works remotely. AuthPoint gave us an opportunity to increase security for mobile users in very simple and intuitive way. The key benefit is mobile token, which is easy to install, activate and use. I also use AuthPoint App for my other personal tokens, like Google or Facebook.

What Multi-Factor Authentication solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Best Authentication App"

What do you like best?

The authentication app is simply the best on the market. You can register not only watchguard authpoint tokens but many others such as Facebook, GMail, GitHub, and so on. Besides, you can lock your tokens under the fingerprint/PIN authentication so they won't be compromised if your smartphone get stolen while unlocked. Very clever!

What do you dislike?

It could have a dark theme (perhaps an OLED dark theme) but this is just cosmetics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The biggest feature of this product is that you can work with lots of authentication protocols (such as SAML or OAuth) and your user still can use their services onto the app. The push notification works as a charm even with smartwatches. Ask for a trial and find for yourself!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lots of costumers want the AuthPoint so they can better secure their legacy applications that doesn't offer any kind of MFA. Another great usage is for customers that must increase the authentication security over the company's devices such as PC or MAC (beta) notebooks

"Authpoint enables users to use MFA principles easily on daily basis on platform-independent devices"

What do you like best?

Authpoint can be installed either on iPhones or Android devices. Its online and also offline authentication features enable users to login anywhere and anytime, regardless the internet connection in easy and convenient way. There is more than one authentication option - Push, QR Scan, One Time Password, from which any user can pick the one, that suites the most. What truly suprised me, was a swift time response of the application itself, ranging from 1-3 seconds, depending on connection and type of authentication. The token system and its dynamic management possibilities help the administrator to quickly manage and solve potencial issues with authentication. And the important advantage is that you can the App is tightly connected to a specific device, which mitigate potencial theft.

What do you dislike?

At first, there were some issues with first login via Authpoint into computers, because at first authentication attempt, the internet connection is always needed. Also, on some virtual OS Windows machines, when the timezone/time was not correctly set, authentication was not possible through some authentication options, but it was quickly solved by Watchguard Support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you or your company look for easy-to-use and easy-to-deploy MFA solution, then Authpoint is the way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were through some minor issues with Authpoint not showing pop-ups when a device was locked and the user wanted to authenticate, but it turned out, it was due bad notification settings on Android OS. The pros are simple, we are now able to deploy MFA for the whole company swiftly, since the solution is cloud-based.

"AuthPoint easy to use, simple to administrate "

What do you like best?

There are a load of features and integrations which I like about AuthPoint, the best feature I like is the PC Login app to lock PCs down to use 2FA, as it is simple to setup and install.

What do you dislike?

The one thing that I dislike about AuthPoint is the fact you can not use Azure Active Directory to sync users and have to set up to Local Active Directory, meaning that this solution is not yet available for cloud only users.

However, after a support chat with Watchguard, I was informed that this is a requested feature which is being worked on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Securing access to all systems from unauthorised personal.

"Easy to use and more secure then classic 2FA variants"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to set up. In addition, the method is safer than a 2fa using sms. In addition, we also want to secure the login process for the client systems with Authpoint. Unfortunately, the user passwords are far too rarely changed and the complexity is too low. Authpoint also helps here.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, not all customers are willing to pay for this service, which means that it can not be used everywhere. It takes a bit of training before the system is implemented, but you get good support from both the manufacturer and the partners.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try the solution, and you'll soon find it the right solution for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Securing access to our servers by unauthorized persons.

"Authpoint has changed my mind on multi-factor authentication."

What do you like best?

Logging into my computer is quicker with Authpoint than typing in my complex password. All I have to do is hit "Enter" on my keyboard and "Approve" on my phone!

What do you dislike?

Because I won't be using my password, I'll likely forget it. This is not really a dislike, more like an "undocumented feature".

Recommendations to others considering the product

It works flawlessly. Online, offline, either way still easier to use than typing in passwords.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Authpoint ensures that only I can access my user account on my PC.

What do you dislike?

We have had no issues with the product, it is continuing a solid roadmap

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Semplice ma potente"

What do you like best?

Console e gestione in cloud, semplicità di configurazione, app e software ben sviluppati.

Se è installata la LogonApp nel PC Windows al momento non è possibile fare l'accesso solo con la password di Windows ma è necessario per forza usare la doppia autenticazione.

What do you like best?

The initial setup was very simple, the documentation was very helpful with that. So far we have used it with our Watchguard VPN and are also using it with our internal documentation software, its simple and works well

What do you dislike?

Nothing yet we have had great luck with this. We hope to see new features added as the product evolves

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to recommend this as a second factor of authentication to our clients that have perhaps had security issues in the past to help them feel more secure

"Simply the best, easy to implement and use"

What do you like best?

The Admin Surface. It´s so easy and intuitive to use and

the APP which I can also use for other systems like Amazon, Facebook or Google.

Well what should I say if I have no Point that I dislike ... nothing.

Because we have customer sensitive datas on our systems we need an secure access to our systems. Equal to logon to the Notebook or using the VPN. With AuthPoint the implemantion and the use is so easy. We love the APP and the usage.

"Simple software for MFA that is frequently reliable"

What do you like best?

It's better than most competitors in terms of reliability. Previous softwares I've used have crashed frequently which can be a hassle when MFA is a major part of your work software system.

What do you dislike?

The design of the app isn't exactly user intuitive and can take some getting used to.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company needs to ensure that the correct users are logging in to portals with private information. It's imperative that we use an MFA service like AuthPoint to ensure that we're keeping client information private.

Can integrate with more and more services.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am working on the MFA for VPN and AD authentication, more and more organizations require advanced security to avoid the traditional authentication. They also ask if WG can work with some banks, paypal...
