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."
"It helps the end users to work on the road without needing to set up all kinds of VPN connections"
"The most valuable feature is that it will use my credentials to access various parts of the infrastructure or other solutions, such as vRealize."
"The most valuable feature is single sign-on."
"The most valuable feature is the User Experience Designer, which has been very helpful for our project."
"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."
"it's very dependent on an active directory"
"Many of the features that exist in Active Directory do not exist in Identity Manager, which means that people depend on Active Directory."
"We have a lot of problems when it comes to integrating with Active Directory."
"I would like to have better support for multi-cloud sessions."
"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."
"We pay approximately $6.50 per user for the standard version. If you are paying for an enterprise license that includes VDI then it will cost approximately $25 per user on a monthly basis."
"Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis."
