Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The integration effort with the end application is quite straightforward and easy.
Single Sign-On functionality is valuable because the core purpose of the product is to allow universal (or bespoke) SSO for application suites.
OAuth 2 is now the de facto standard for API protection and scoped authorized delegation. IBM TAM now supports OAuth 2 and can act as fully compliant OAuth 2 authorization server.
The Verify feature: A push method which customers are going for.
Roles, connectors for provisioning and re-accreditation or reviews help greatly to govern user access.
Multi-factor authentication with social integration needs to improve.
The profiling element is incredibly robust, but also equally as complex, it requires an off-site course to be able to understand the context or the plethora of options available.
The self-service portal needs improvement.
An Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for the newer appliance versions for hosting the virtual appliances on AWS will help.
Looking at their roadmap, they have a broad grasp of the security features which the industry needs.
The user interface and workflow need improvement, and more connectors would help.
There are scalability issues. This product does not scale very well. It is not a good product for load balancing / active–active architecture.
If you use the appliance version then it won't handle a huge database volume.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The IBM prices are, as ever, extortionate, even with a business partnership, and high levels of discounts.
Pricing varies based on user count/number of modules you need.
