Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The short version is that we gained significant insight into the issues of access governance. This allowed us to turn an auditing nightmare into praise from our auditors.It gives the best user experience, enabling us an overview of all user entitlements.This solution is better on the IT personnel, because now they spend less (or almost no time) managing user rights.The most valuable feature for me is the built-in security, which is the best that I have seen.The connection with multiple systems is what makes it flexible. We can create the accounts flexibly, enabling access to other systems. In addition to Active Directory, it can extend to SAP, to Salesforce, to Office 365, etc.Nobody has to put people in AD groups by hand anymore. It goes automatically and that's very good. It's also very flexible. It's quite easy to customize and we have customized it a lot.For me, personally, the automation is the most valuable feature. I don't have to do things manually, like creating user accounts and provisioning them to the target systems.This is almost a complete solution for us.

The GUI interface is well-designed and user-friendly.I find it really easy and computer confident, and the experience with the product is really good. Additionally, customizations are easy.The user interface is quite good. It's very straightforward.The most valuable feature is session monitoring.Ease of use because of its monolithic software.It offers the possibility of secure administration of hardware devices, as well as Linux systems administration from a Windows environment.The most valuable feature of this solution is the random changing of passwords.Provides us with the ability to control access [to secrets] by groups.

Cons
The support team could be improved on. The first level of support essentially looks up knowledge base articles and often can't provide the answer needed.The initial setup was complex. We have a lot of different systems. The journey from implementing to joining all the systems was difficult.The performance could use improvement. Sometimes synchronizations take too long.A feature that I would like to see is a mobile app that provides users the ability to make changes or add users to the Active Directory, on the fly.More integration with SAP and with the internet of things would be good. We also have system devices that we could manage as identities, so that would be a feature to add.One of the things we would like is the ability to have more than one system role manager. That would be nice. For example, when people are on vacation, sometimes it gets a little hard to administrate system roles.The system role manager, or some of the roles that are inside Identity Manager, are limited to one user. It would be more flexible if these responsibility roles could be attached to many people.It should be able to give a client version of the product, rather than just a web-portal.

This product is excellent in every way except minor details in handling extremely large environments.There are some things that I know are really important to include like A/B version features which are available in Windows. I would say that they should be included in the road map.There could be tweaks here and there. For example, instead of going to one main function to do this and another main function to do that, the solution could remap the user interface so that a person only has to go through one function. The way that function branches off should make a bit more sense.Having more detailed reporting would improve this solution.Documentation could be improved if they were to include more about connectors. There is not enough documentation.I would like to see the shadowing of ongoing terminal sessions (Remote Desktop Mirroring).We could definitely use some help with API tokenization. If we had a way to store tokens that would be fabulous.One of the things that we want is to be able to do some of the management of it using APIs.

Pricing and Cost Advice
There is a one-time licensing cost, and there is also a yearly subscription fee.It's costlier that some other products, and there is nothing that fits every solution.We are using a self-built solution. It would cost too much to get that up to the standard of what we need. In the long-term, it is cheaper to buy a solution that has what we need. Though, we are still running the previous solution, as we are still in the implementation phase.It needs flexibility in the licensing or packaging, because you buy the entire package at once, and sometimes the customers are a bit overwhelmed with whatever they get. I would like if they could cut the licensing or packaging into somewhat smaller things.It has helped to reduce customer costs.We are paying for premium support, which is expensive. However, we do receive very good, fast support.It helps us save on licenses for applications because we are following the account lifecycle, as well as account reactivation.We have the premium support and are very satisfied. They are always answer our questions very quickly. For the moment, we are very satisfied, but I think it's because we are paying for the premium support.
