Diego RiveraCommercial and Technical Professional Manager at Evolution Technologies Group
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
