IBM Resource Access Control Facility Review

We're able to do role-based security so when new people join the company we're able to quickly add them to the proper security through role-based security groups.


What is most valuable?

It's completely secure. That's the best answer I can give you. We're able to do role-based security so when new people join the company we're able to quickly add them to the proper security through role-based security groups. Our resources are secured with this product.

What needs improvement?

I would welcome something that is more easily integrated with distributor platforms.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is excellent.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's only a mainframe product so it doesn't cross platforms. It does integrate with some of our distributed solutions which is good. Some of that we haven't fully implemented.

How is customer service and technical support?

I haven't personally used the technical support.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We have other solutions in place, and we had CA Top Secret in place before we used RACF. The purchase was a decision outside of my hands.

How was the initial setup?

I was responsible for the implementation for the products for which I'm responsible that need RACF security.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked for transportability in evaluated products but that was twenty-five years ago so I have no idea what was evaluated.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it as a mainframe solution.
