FortiAuthenticator can be useful for network security, resource security, and server security. It is a cloud-based solution.

We primarily use Fortinet FortiAuthenticator to centralize the management of user identity information in Security Architectures, enforce Role-Based authentication, and allow Two Factor authentication with Softclient support. This is a must-have technology in Fortinet implementations with several gateways and distributed environments. It is easy to set up and will reduce Network administrators' efforts to integrate diverse identification methods. Must evaluate Single Sing On Mobility Agents to full integration of users position on the network and complete the solution.

We use this solution for two-factor authentication of most of our services. It includes VPN but also many other services that we have on our internet servers. We use the on-premise version because we also want it integrated into our in-house applications. We are customers of Fortinet and I'm a systems administrator.

Our primary use case for Fortinet FortiAuthenticator is, first of all, as a two-factor VPN for enhanced access security. We use this product to provide secure access for all of our employees. Our other use cases have to do with using FortiAuthenticator for other security projects which includes things like access to some important web applications.

I am a solution architect and my company works purely for Fortinet, implementing all versions on a daily basis, so we're not end-users. The company is an exclusive distributor implementing the product. The primary use case of the product is usually for multifactor authentication using two-factor authentication with tokens. Sometimes people require two factors with a token. Sometimes they need the latest POC. I do a proof of concept for windows login. They need the agent who authenticates with SMS, token or email.
