It is stable, but certain features which are out in the market are not available to make it more robust. View full review »

In terms of the stability issues, what we do see is frequent Policy Server service restarts. What will happen is SM Policy Server will die and be restarted by the SM executive. That happens relatively frequently. But again, we're on an older version, and we've been told by CA that that's the reason why, and that it has been patched in later releases of the product. But the executive restarts the service as fast as we can log in and look to see, is there any service impact? The environment is once again processing authentication and authorizations. Not only that, but, we do have a relatively large environment as well, so we have policy servers running and multiple datacenters. It's not just one in each datacenter, it's several in each datacenter. So we don't see any large, sweeping impacts to our enterprise authentication traffic; when one goes down, it gets restarted. Although, it is a pain because you do have to allocate resources to go and verify that yes, indeed, it did come up. View full review »

If I had answered this question four years back I would have said "poor." But over the last four years they've done a lot of work to make it stable and it's reasonably stable right now. It still goes down once in a while. But that's not the product's problem, it's probably how it's configured in our environment. So the product is pretty stable. View full review »

It is one of the most stable products in the banking organization that I am in. It never goes down and if it does, it is usually because my partner or me did something to it. I have been using it for a year. The company has been using it for probably 20 years. It has always been a very stable product. View full review »

It's a very stable product. Once we experienced a crash, the main policy engine of Single Sign On crashed, but CA gave us a fix for that. View full review »

It's very stable. We have experienced occasional downtime, but once we work with support we find the problems and we solve them. Once everything is configured and working, it's stable. View full review »
