RADIUS Providers

Let’s take a look at the major players in the industry. We’ll take the guesswork out of the equation for you and focus on the 4 “best” organizations in the RADIUS market. The following should help you make a decision as to which solution is most appropriate for your organization.


Keytos’ EZRADIUS provides all of the features you’d expect from a cloud RADIUS solution, with a simple to configure interface that can get you from zero to hero in 10 minutes.

Foxpass Cloud RADIUS

In considering Foxpass as a solution for network authentication, organizations should be mindful of several key considerations. First, the reliance on external directory services like LDAP or Active Directory for user management means that those without such systems may face additional complexities in setup. This aspect can pose a particular challenge for smaller organizations, which might also find the initial set-up and ongoing management somewhat daunting due to limited IT resources. Furthermore, the cost associated with Foxpass, given its scalable and high-availability features, could be a significant factor for organizations operating under tight budget constraints. Lastly, there may be instances where its out-of-the-box solutions do not fully meet specific organizational needs, potentially requiring further customization or adaptation to align with unique network configurations or use cases.

Jumpcloud Cloud RADIUS

While JumpCloud’s RADIUS solution offers a robust and cloud-based approach to network authentication and access management, it may not align perfectly with all organizational needs, primarily due to a few significant considerations. For organizations with strict regulatory or compliance requirements, the reliance on a fully cloud-based solution might pose challenges related to data sovereignty or specific industry regulations that mandate on-premises data handling. Additionally, the ease of integration, although a strength, could become a limitation for enterprises deeply embedded in legacy systems or proprietary technologies not directly supported by JumpCloud. This could necessitate extensive customization or potentially lead to compatibility issues. Moreover, the cost structure of JumpCloud’s cloud-based service, while scalable, may represent a financial hurdle for smaller organizations or those with limited IT budgets, especially when evaluating the long-term total cost of ownership compared to traditional, on-premises solutions.

SecureW2 Cloud RADIUS

SecureW2’s RADIUS solution, while robust and secure, might not suit all organizations due to potential challenges. Its reliance on cloud-based management and certificate-based authentication could complicate integration with legacy systems or conflict with on-premises data handling mandates. This shift also demands a significant update in authentication processes, possibly straining SMEs with limited IT resources. Additionally, the costs associated with a comprehensive cloud-managed solution may exceed the budgetary limits of some organizations. These factors necessitate a careful evaluation of an organization’s specific needs, technological infrastructure, and financial constraints.
