Enterprise and federate or stand alone

We have ArcGIS Server 10.3 running on an old server.  We are setting up a new sever and will install 10.7.1 (single-machine deployment).  My current workflow is to publish a map service from ArcMap, create a web map in AGOL, then use WebApp Builder (developer version) to create a web application that I copy to the server.  I am trying to determine if I should use Enterprise Builder and federate, or keep ArcGIS Server stand alone as on the old server.


I do have one application (and may build more) where I used ArcGIS Server Manager to secure the service.  I published the service with Feature Access enabled.  In ArcGIS Server Manager I created a user name and password and assigned it a role, I made the service private and assigned it the role.  I created the web map and application as described above.  I provide the person who needs to use it the link, user name, and password, and they are able to make updates.  From everything I have read, it appears I would no longer be able to secure the service that way if we federated and user management was taken over by Portal?
