Great product for 2FA. Password management is OK.

Easy, secure 2 Factor Authentication.

Pros
AuthAnvil is one of the most widely supported 2 Factor Authentication methods that we can fully manage as a company. Sure, there are other free options like Google Authenticator, but the problem with that each user's token is managed by the user directly. AuthAnvil allows our organization to manage and hand out tokens as necessary. If an employee needs to be cut off from access, we can disable their token and everything it is tied to is effectively locked out.

Cons
The password server is a great idea, but we found it to be lacking in other documentation areas. It's fine for holding passwords only, but we needed a full-fledged documentation solution. We no longer keep passwords in AuthAnvil mostly because it is more convenient and easier to adminster securely when that data is kept with all of our other documentation (IT Glue).

Pros
The ability to easily remote in and send files to end users' machines. The live connect feature is quite useful, it allows you to access the machine's command prompt without disturbing the end user. The alerting is easily configured and highly customizable. Generally, users appreciate the ability for us to quickly access their machines. TFA integration is seamless for logins.

Cons
The Acronis backup module leaves a lot to be desired. It seems like half the functionality within it doesn't work that well, and the only time you ever really need it is in the middle of a critical meltdown.

A great product

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
The thing I like most about AuthAnvil is the ease of use. I find most often ease of use tends to result in a reduction in security, but in the case of AuthAnvil, that does not hold true. The password vault has detailed reports available so we can easily know in seconds everything about who has accessed or what can be accessed.

Cons
The only thing that I dislike on the product is the process that you have to go through for an existing user to reinstall the soft token. When someone gets a new device you have to delete the token then reassign the token back to the user then log into the portal to authorize the token to be set back up for the user.

Security. Plan and simple. This secures our login assets down to the user with Multi-factor authentication.

Pros
The best part of Auth Anvil is that it integrates with our RMM tool. Seodnaly has to be the ease of use. Scan the QR and you're all set!

Cons
The one thing I would like to see as an added feature would be a recovery piece. If you email was changed, or you have a new device to set up a new account QR code on.

Great MFA choice that can host a large amount of different accounts

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Want MFA? This is probably one of the best choices to be able to load a diverse amount of accounts to use it. We have used it for Dropbox, Kaseya, IT Glue and many more. Can make it convenient to put them all into one account and a SSO login page through the web portal.

Cons
There are certain accounts, like Microsoft, that cannot be loaded into this, but that is not necessarily their fault is Microsoft will not allow it.

Two step verification for security purposes.

Pros
Security is something we all need to be aware of. Not only in the IT industry, but what I do in accounting and HR, as well. I like the extra level of security AuthAnvil provides.

Cons
Everyone has a preferred web browser. AuthAnvil has proven uncooperative with one in particular that I like to use.

Shows a lot of promise, but the new SaaS platform is not ready for primetime yet

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
It is easy to setup and provision users. The user experience with the new On Demand product is generally very good and there is good support for a variety of protocols such as SAML and RADIUS for handling multi-factor logons to business systems. The ability to create tenants for customers to be able to offer MFA as a service is excellent.

Cons
The new On Demand Active Directory synchronization seems buggy and not yet ready for widespread production usage. The two-way password sync/reset functionality is not reliable and reinstalling the sync agent causes accounts to lose sync. This is being investigated by support however as it is being pitched as a production-ready service this is disappointing.

Pros
Very simple to use. Sign in, enable PUSH notification, hit approve and you're done! I love the iOS app!

Cons
Initial setup can be a pain, but usually very simple. I had a hard time scanning the QR code for setup, but could just be my phone.

Decent Two Factor Authentication, But a Little Behind the Industry Leaders

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-06-09
Review Source: Capterra

AuthAnvil has served the company well for several years, but the product has not kept up with industry leaders.

Pros
AuthAnvil allows my company to add two factor authentication to our network and managed software to protect against password fraud. Configuration is not difficult.

Cons
The product is behind the industry leaders in terms and features and functionality. Other 2FA products feature push authentication that makes the login process easier.

Overall positive, but there are some important integrations missing (e.g. Outlook Web Access)

Pros
Push authentication for second factor. Reasonably simple integration with many third-party products.

Cons
Customer support needs to improve. We rarely get updates on open tickets, and have to request updates or remind AuthAnvil that the issue is not resolved. There have been long wait times for AuthAnvil to resolve integration issues with certain products. The inability to remove or rename tenants is inconvenient.

Pros
It just works. I have had minimal issues post deployment, and they are very easy to resole with assistance of support. It allows me to secure all of my Kaseya solutions, as well as any SAML supported products.

Cons
I have no complaints about the Software. In the past, Kaseya would have an issue with response times on support but since they have been re-structured their team, they have been on-top of their game.

MFA for 3rd world.

none

Pros
MFA that allows access to alot of 3rd party software makes using multi factor less tedious. I can login once to the portal and access all my systems with single sign on and just a quick click. only have to duel authentic once maybe twice a day instead of having it for 15 different products.

Cons
It can be more dangerous if a user leave computer unlocked, but users are the weakest security link.
