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

The solution is stable. We haven't experienced any bugs or glitches.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.It gets a mobility portal in place in conjunction with Office 365. It provides very good possibilities and it's much better than other technology that we have used before which was unstable and slower.I find the auto-discovery feature the most valuable. It helps us automate a lot of things using a single password across applications.

The solution should allow for better integration with other platforms and the UBT.If the solution is going to compete with Microsoft, they need to offer more unique functionality to keep their current user base.They could use some bio-certification. It's just more user-friendly and more convenient than entering the one time passes. That would be an improvement.It has a long way to go until it is a cloud-based solution.

More PingID Cons »

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.To add more value to this solution it needs to be more user-friendly.CA has reporting at the moment. With the reporting, every particular segmented product has a reporting engine. I would like to see centralized reporting for all of them together.
