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."
"The most valuable features are two-factor authentication and real-time logon monitoring."
"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."
"The product and service are already great as it is but if I could add one feature, I guess it would be nice to have another factor of authentication (two additional factors) like your phone and a token for example, for when people forget their phone at home."
"Symantec Siteminder is expensive; they could definitely do better on the price."
"The licensing is fair for this solution."
"You will be hard-pressed to find better pricing."
