Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The ability to grant access to other organizations is helpful.""The interface is well laid out and it is easy to navigate.""The most valuable feature is that it is very easy to implement, you don't need a lot of effort to set up the solution. This is the most advantageous point, that you can do anything on Azure without taking too much time.""The single sign-on is very convenient for us.""The most valuable feature is the ease of scalability.""The single sign-on of the solution is the most valuable aspect.""The most valuable feature is the ability to set up conditional access, where you can enforce users to connect using multifactor authentication.""Its ability to provide secure connections to people at all locations is the most valuable. It is mostly used by enterprises."

"The community is very active and when I had questions about an issue, I was able to find the resources.""The solution is stable and reliable.""Certifications and user provisioning features are the most valuable.""It provides a lot of out-of-the-box functionalities. You don't have to do too much custom development like other solutions such as Microsoft or NetIQ. It also has a lot of out-of-the-box connectors for different sources, directories, databases, etc. Its cloud version is working very well, and its pricing is okay. Its value for money is fine for most of the customers. It is also very flexible. They have frequent new releases and patches for fixing errors and things like that.""The most valuable feature for our customers and for us is the identity data warehouse.""The basic concept is most valuable. I like how they have designed the solution. They create an Identity Cube, and then they do all the processes and configuration around the Identity Cube.""The solution is pretty stable and simple to use.""The solution is very good at the management of the identity lifecycle."

Cons
"Microsoft needs to add a single setup, so whenever resources join the company or are leaving the company, all of the changes can be made with a single click.""My only pain point in this solution is creating group membership for devices.""I would rate it an eight out of ten. The price plays a factor in the rating.""It would be ideal if the solution moved to a passwordless type of environment. It's the future of authentification. It's also more secure and convenient.""I think the documentation and configuration are both areas that need improvement.""We would like to have more granularity in the Azure conditional access in order to be able to manage more groups for devices and for applications.""Technical support could be faster.""The onboarding process for new users can be improved. It can be made simpler for people who have never registered to Azure AD previously and need to create an account and enable the MFA. The initial setup can be made simpler for non-IT people. It should be a bit simpler to use. Unless you get certifications, such as AZ-300 and AZ-301, it is not a simple thing to use at the enterprise scale."

"The interface should be simple and easier to use.""The connectors are far too manual. This needs to be automated a bit.""The UI needs to be more user friendly. More concentration on historical policy violations would be great. In terms of new features, I would like to see artificial intelligence and machine language added.""They can work on their strategy for the on-premise version. They have to decide whether and for how long they will support the on-premise version. The new features first appear in the cloud, and after that, they are released for the on-premise version. In the cloud, you have more options and flexibility, which is absolutely normal. They have to have a clear strategy regarding whether they'll support the on-premises version with the same focus. The licensing for on-premise and cloud is a little bit different. They can make it the same.""The report functionality and dashboard of the access manager could be improved.""It is too technical. You need really good technical skills in Java and other technologies, which are hard to find. If they can make it easier so that things can be done with a few clicks, it will be great.""What it doesn't do is provide notice in the event of a vulnerability or offense from the security.""Compared to at least one other product some of the administrative tasks could be easier or more intuitive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis and the cost depends on the number of users.""This product is sold as part of the enterprise package and our licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis.""MFA and P2 licenses for two Azures for fully-enabled scenarios and features cost a lot of money. This is where Okta is trying to get the prices down.""We are a non-profit organization, so we get good prices from Microsoft for their products. It is working well, but it could be cheaper. For the type of organization we are, it would be good if they could give a little bit more and be more generous like Google, which has completely free services. Microsoft has free versions or web services called Office 365 E1, which is free for use, but we want to have it with more qualified clients.""We pay about $35 per user.""I think we're on the E3 — I think it was about 35 dollars per user.""We got a good deal. If you get rid of all the products providing features that Azure Suite can provide, then it makes sense cost-wise.""Microsoft has a free version of Azure AD. So, if you don't do a lot of advanced features, then you can use the free version, which is no cost at all because it is underpinning Office 365. Because Microsoft gives it to you as a SaaS, so there are no infrastructure costs whatsoever that you need to incur. If you use the free version, then it is free. If you use the advanced features (that we use), it is a license fee per user."

"SailPoint is higher in price as compared to Saviynt. The initial cost of SailPoint is very high. There are additional costs to the standard licensing fees.""Its price is okay. It provides good value for money. It is subscription-based. You can go for a one-year or three-year subscription.""The price of the solution could improve, it is not priced well for smaller businesses to afford.""It is a costly solution. Its cost, for sure, should be reduced.""You do pay one price for the license but that price depends on what you choose to include as far as the optional modules go."
