Symantec Identity Governance and Administration Review

Identity manager is an identity management tool for administrators that governs and manages the identities of users, their access to the system, roles, and what they are allowed to do with data they have access to.

Valuable Features:

• Identity manager enables automated processes of entitlements, management as well as deletion, and creation of user accounts. • Access to all enterprise systems like relational databases can be managed efficiently. • Identity manager decentralizes group membership and role management, by allowing administration of delegated users, and therefore scalability and less maintenance can be achieved. It is flexible, reduces the costs of administration and increases accountability, improves security, and lowers help desk workloads.

Room for Improvement:

Identity manager is very complex and you must have the knowledge and skills required to use it. It is also a bit expensive, but its benefits outweigh all these cons.

Other Advice:

Identity manager is designed to improve business security and compliance and efficiency by automating identity controls, which increases flexibility and agility of IT and businesses. It can be deployed on-site or as virtual and cloud services. It incorporates very critical features, like a module for structured administration, integrated compliance support and workflows, and self-services for users. I have used it for more than one year now.
