Re: fortitoken cloud
There are previous tokens
- HW (shells FTK200 + FTK211 (seends on CD), cards FTK220)
- SW FortiToken Mobile app for major platforms (Apple iOS, Android, Windows)
- there is one another which is cert storage SmartCard token FTK300
HW tokens are TOTP, Mobile one can be both TOTP and HOTP.
All those HW are some physical tokens you own. FortiToken Mobile is not a physical but you own it, a license for tokens inside a pack. Both those types are bonded to some FortiGate/FortiManager/FortiAuthenticator where those are activated and bonded to.
FortiToken Cloud is concept of tokens managed from cloud based app/interface, not from some appliance or VM unit.
It's sort of centrally managed from cloud, no need to have FortiAuthenticator as central management of authentication. Also it's sort of Mobile token, with push technology and no other HW needed then your mobile device. It is 2nd factor auth as subscription service, easy expand and easy change, with high availability.
