We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The soundness of the solution is its most valuable feature. For example, if you are in our corporate network, you can log on without any traffic interfering."
"The solution is stable. We haven't experienced any bugs or glitches."
"It's pretty stable as a product."
"The most valuable feature is the integration with the Active Directory."
"The single sign-on is the solution's most valuable feature"
"Symantec Siteminder Is both scalable and stable."
"The solution is easy to use for our managers."
"If the solution is going to compete with Microsoft, they need to offer more unique functionality to keep their current user base."
"The solution should allow for better integration with other platforms and the UBT."
"The timing of the token validity, if it could be extended, would be great. I'm not sure if there is even an option to configure these types of settings."
"To add more value to this solution it needs to be more user-friendly."
"We're currently unable to find information about if the solution can do a full implementation with SQL. Some better and more accessible documentation for new users or those curious about the product would be helpful."
"Some of the new protocols, like OAuth 2.0, could be improved."
"The technical support could be better."
"Symantec Siteminder is expensive; they could definitely do better on the price."
"The licensing is fair for this solution."
