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."

"We used to have a system before, Mac OS Open Directory server and this open directory became obsolete because Apple decided to stop the enterprise market, so there was no other alternative for us to use. We chose this to replace the open directory and we found that it has many more features than the previous solution. We totally rely on it right now to manage all the devices on campus.""The feature that we find most valuable is the corporate email pushing.""Cloud-based VMware Workspace ONE is very good. It is easy to deploy and manage. Maintenance is also quite simple.""A very easy to use solution.""The most valuable feature is policy-driven control of the devices.""The remote management and location capabilities are good.""The most valuable feature is the interface with SCAP, which is the Security Content Automation Protocol.""VMware Workspace ONE has been stable so far."

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."

"The mobile device repository is somewhat difficult to manage with a large user base.""Pricing is the only challenge right now. The licensing fee should be simplified a little bit. They have kept too many products as add ons. These need to be bundled with the low-cost, standard version. This will help customers in adopting this technology at a faster pace.""Cost of licensing is quite high.""When it comes to deployment and maintaining security, there should be an integrated console where you have a singular view of all of the products from the same OEM.""The app installer is something that they should really change. It creates a lot of confusion for the user.""The reverse proxy is not intuitive and it takes time to get it right, so this is something that can be improved.""It's not accurate enough when it comes to sending items to end-users.""From an identity perspective, there is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to integration with other solutions. I would say it needs more capabilities in terms of direct integrations, including cloud identity solution integrations."

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."

More Google Cloud Identity Pricing and Cost Advice »

"If you purchase it for one year, it is very expensive. If you get it for three years or up to five years, then you can bargain a better price.""There is a separate cost for technical support and extra premium features. The pricing should be simplified.""The cost is a little bit high.""VMware Workspace ONE is not cheap; it's quite expensive. However, in the end, they gave us a reasonable price.""If you have a host of custom requirements (including licensing), make sure to set aside enough time for the initial setup because it can take up to a few weeks depending on how complex your environment is.""I think that the price is reasonable."
