Introduction

FortiToken Cloud (FTC hereafter) is an Identity and Access Management as a Service(IDaaS) Cloud service offered by Fortinet. It enables FortiGate (FGT) and FortiAuthenticator (FAC) customers to use FTC to provide multi-factor authentication(MFA) for their users, with no additional hardware or software required. It protects local and remote FGT and FAC administrators as well as firewall and VPN users.

Many large-scale, costly, and most damaging data breaches in recent memory have been attributed to weak, insecure, and/or compromised user passwords. In response, businesses of all sizes are moving beyond the traditional, password-alone authentication in favor of MFA. Adding a second factor to the authentication process, whether with traditional hardware, or more recently through mobile device applications, has become the new norm. Unfortunately, implementing and managing MFA deployments has proven to be no easy task. It requires dedicated IT personnel with the technical know-how, and the process is complex, on-going, and time-consuming.

Seamlessly integrated with Fortinet's industry-leading, award-winning, hardened, and trusted network security management products and technologies, FortiToken Cloud offers a secure, effective way to manage MFA for your FGT and FAC appliances through an intuitive, easy-to-use web interface that can be accessed from anywhere via the Internet. Best of all, our FortiToken Cloud service includes our popular FortiToken Mobile App with PUSH technology to provide smooth and enjoyable multi-factor experience for your end users.
