We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"You don't need to be a specialist in Identity and Access Management solutions to understand the software and configure it."
"The most valuable feature is the option to use SSO from different sources such as Microsoft AD, ADFS, Azure AD, SAML, form-based, etc."
"The Single Sign-On capabilities are endless and we haven't found a single app so far that couldn't be set up for SSO."
"Now we can easily control who has access to which client or client application."
"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."
"Sometimes it generates a username that is not unique, but at the time of this writing, it is not possible to generate a new one that is unique."
"Integration with other Tools4ever applications such as SSRPM and IAM would be nice."
"I would like to have the built-in provisioning module improved."
"When something needs to be changed with the sign-on policies, we have to apply this manually to every client environment that we have."
"Symantec Siteminder is expensive; they could definitely do better on the price."
"The licensing is fair for this solution."
"In terms of costs and pricing, this solution is worth every penny."
"Since HelloID is very reasonably priced, the return-on-investment is fast."

HelloID makes accessing applications easy by seamlessly integrating into an organization's portal where users already go for other information. It can also be offered through a familiar URL if a portal interface is not desired. By integrating HelloID into an existing portal, organizations make it simple for users to quickly find and access all the applications they need from a single dashboard. Once logged into the portal, the user sees an overview of the available cloud applications (e.g. Google Apps, Salesforce, Office 365, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) and simply clicks on that application's icon.
