Find out what your peers are saying about CA SSO vs. Safe-T Secure Application Access and other solutions. Updated: November 2019.
382,399 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable feature is that it meets the requirements of the customer. You have a lot of features in the product. Every product has them, but the question is, are these products going to meet the requirement of the customer?
I liked the debugging part. There are only two files (trace file and log file) that you need to look into while performing debugging, and the logs give you the exact info on where and what needs to be fixed.
You can quickly deploy the entire product with a basic config within couple of hours.
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.
the security level is very high. After we tested it and checked all the security aspects of the product, we found that it's highly secure.
If you want a very flexible system that you can easily integrate, and develop interfaces for it or plug-ins to other application environments, it's probably the most flexible
Safe-T is very good for users because it has plug-in for Outlook.
It's easy to use over the web. A user who is not in the office can use it and securely insert files.
CA has reporting at the moment. With the reporting, every particular segmented product has a reporting engine. I would like to see centralized reporting for all of them together.
The GUIs are not very clear, especially when integrating with other products from CA.
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.
One important thing that we haven't found in this product is the ability to provide a read-only view for documents. Also, the ability for the customer to add annotations to these documents.
The Outlook agent is not working well for installing it in the entire office.
Pricing and Cost Advice
CA solutions are generally expensive but for the customer the ROI is big.
I recommend conducting a PoC on every available product before choose one.
