Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The main control page and the ability to manage all our users from a web-based portal are the most valuable aspects of the solution. That's particularly useful because we're a heterogeneous network.""The Cloud Identity is well advanced in terms of features, applications, and the components that it is offering.""Although we have not looked at the whole product and explored it completely, we find that all the authentication features that we are using now are valuable.""The most valuable feature is the performance.""The most valuable feature is that you can manage users from one central location.""I think the first thing that is great is that it gives you a lot of features, like login, and then vaulted passwords and secure LDAP. It becomes easier for the end customer to leverage all those features without going to a higher SKU of G Suite."

"If the product works, remote access will be a benefit. To this point we have not had reason to have confidence in achieving that access.""The most important thing for me is the autopilot feature.""The dashboards, the security, and the customization capabilities work very well for us.""We have not experienced any bugs or glitches with this solution.""This product offers an alternative solution to other UEM (Unified Endpoint Management) solutions.""Maturity makes it a stable product.""The most valuable feature is the UEM capabilities.""The most valuable feature for us is the security, including risk analysis and patch management."

Cons
"The solution needs to better integrate with Mac's OS.""The interface could be improved by simplifying it further.""To improve the product, the integration with third-party products could always be smoother.""The pricing for this solution is a little bit higher than AWS and others, which is something that should be improved.""In the next release, I would like to see integration with different systems, mainly wireless SIEMS and other analytical systems that we want to introduce.""They are going ahead and adding a few more things to the Google Cloud premium edition. Their stock management and remote computer management can be improved."

More Google Cloud Identity Cons »

"The difficulty of the the roll out is surprisingly difficult considering this product is supposed to be an integrated part of the 365 suite.""I would like to see the ability to deploy custom packages as a Windows 64-bit package, as opposed to the Windows 32-bit, which is the only one available now.""It would be helpful if there was proactive remediation.""There are items that require improvements. One is the controls from iOS.""The reporting needs to be a bit more interactive.""There is no catalog for mobile access management (MAM) security.""The configuration could be better by consolidating options and making it simpler.""There's quite a lot of development that they can do within their Intune dashboard. I think there are too many lines hyperlinked to move you around. Others, in contrast, give you a simple dashboard and an intuitive administrative walkthrough."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We probably spend about $50,000 a year on licensing.""Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.""The product is billed on a monthly basis depending on the number of users.""The fees are paid monthly and there are no additional costs other than the licensing fees."

"For Microsoft 365 E5 clients, cost is not an issue as this product is one of the benefits.""The price of Intune is included with the license for Office 365, so we don't have to pay anything extra for it.""The pricing for Microsoft Intune is reasonable. Our clients are satisfied.""The price of Intune is often included as part of a bundle with other Microsoft licenses, which makes it somewhat cheaper.""Licensing depends on how you are providing support to your enterprise, whether it's device-based or user-based.""We work with the subscription rather than a server license. I think it's economical this way because we don't have to have a server license for that, and I think that works in our favor.""Pricing can be improved.""The price could be better."
