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.
Cloud-based service and management.
The two-factor authentication is most definitely valuable and moves us closer to being able to check off those important boxes for compliance.
In this version 9.1, lots of changes are done for the dashboard, User Store etc.
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.
Geofencing needs improvement.
The gateway server is a RADIUS server, but it lacks the functionality of returning RADIUS attributes other than those that are required for the gateway to authenticate the users.
The User Store synchronization part needs to improve. Also, the logs, reports, and dashboard can be improved.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The IBM prices are, as ever, extortionate, even with a business partnership, and high levels of discounts.
There is a one-time setup fee plus the licenses are provided as per the number of users. For SMS and voice calls, the costs are separate.
Licensing and pricing seems very fair.
