Quotes From Members Comparing CA SSO vs IBM Tivoli Access Manager

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It has considerably reduced the amount of time that new users would take to join into the organization. Previously, it was a lengthy, manual process because it's a very secure environment, where they need to verify the user before they can actually grant him a user-ID and password. Integrating with the built-in custom application, and exposing CA Single Sign On to the internet, we were able to get the employees onboard. The time that we gained was: previously it would generally take from four to eight weeks for each employee, we brought it to one to two days.The most valuable feature is the Federation part of Single Sign On, which is customizable and is easily integrated with any customer application or any third party application.Federation is valuable, for sure, because we have a lot of third-party vendors that we need to integrate with, and this is a turnkey solution in some ways.The Directory is secure. It's our user store, and it's important to keep our members safe. The product does well with that.If you look at our organization, and really all financial institutions, we have a lot of legacy apps. So it really helps to get Single Sign-On.Ease of use is very good, for administrating it. It's very well known.It has the ability to authenticate and authorize users. It is the main feature for our security.It is very scalable. We have a very large customer base: 75 million customers.

The integration effort with the end application is quite straightforward and easy.Single Sign-On functionality is valuable because the core purpose of the product is to allow universal (or bespoke) SSO for application suites.SAML 2.0.OAuth 2 is now the de facto standard for API protection and scoped authorized delegation. IBM TAM now supports OAuth 2 and can act as fully compliant OAuth 2 authorization server.The Verify feature: A push method which customers are going for.

Cons
The Federation part of CA Single Sign On, it's a bit complex to implement because it involves the SSL certificates, exchange of certificates, and lot of technical details. The documentation misses some important parts of this, so that's the reason it took some time for us to go live.I think they need to integrate some of the newer types of authentication into the product. I'm not seeing the innovation when it comes to biometrics in the product.They need to make configurations easier, and not have the engineer having to guess what will happen when he changes a particular setting.The initial setup was complex, painful. But that is to be expected of any new setup. When you're a big bank like us, any kind of migration to a new product is hard. I expect it to be painful, and it was painful. But it's not something that you can avoid.I would like to see a move towards the newer technologies, which is what we are doing right now. I think that's in the roadmap that's coming, in the 12.8 and 14 releases, but we would like to have it sooner than later.The main thing is we do not have the traceability and good monitoring that CA can provide us to capture problems when they occur.All the problems that we reported actually have never been resolved. We could not capture enough information for CA to be able to debug the problem.I would prefer to see their SAML integration be a more streamlined and easier interface.

Multi-factor authentication with social integration needs to improve.The profiling element is incredibly robust, but also equally as complex, it requires an off-site course to be able to understand the context or the plethora of options available.The self-service portal needs improvement.An Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for the newer appliance versions for hosting the virtual appliances on AWS will help.Looking at their roadmap, they have a broad grasp of the security features which the industry needs.
