What is most valuable?

The most valuable features that I have used are the unified identity access application and endpoint management.

What needs improvement?

Pricing is something that can be improved. Right now, Microsoft is doing very well in the cloud and Google has to be more competitive. Customers are always interested in the price. The interface could… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to this solution, our customer was using a Microsoft solution that was on-premises. They had control of their groups, Microsoft IDs, and Windows IDs. The Cloud Identity is well advanced in terms… more»

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of this solution depends on customer requirements. You have to consider the features that they will need. My feeling is that eventually, Google will come up with more applications and… more»

Our customer has two or three cloud providers and they compared pricing and features.

What is most valuable?

Mainly we find that all the authentication features that we are using now are the most valuable. We have not looked at the whole product and explored it completely as this was primarily what we wanted it for. Maybe in another year of use… more»

What needs improvement?

To improve the product, the integration with third-party products could always be smoother. I cannot pinpoint a specific new feature that we will need in the future as the product is serving our purposes. But if we talk about integration… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The product is billed on a monthly basis. I think it can be free for a certain number of users when you have the G Suite. At some point, it starts to cost something per user, but I'm not sure of the exact pricing at this time.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

There are a lot of different products like this that we have used, but the one that we can directly compare with is Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium, which we also use quite a lot. We have not actually switched. We are still using… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is as good as anything else in the product category. It works just like other products that do the same, like Oracle (Identity Cloud Service) or Microsoft Azure or Okta. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the… more»

What is most valuable?

The main control page and the ability to manage all our users from a web-based portal are the most valuable aspects of the solution. That's particularly useful because we're a heterogeneous network.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to better integrate with Mac's OS. The solution should offer a bit more automation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We probably spend about $50,000 a year on licensing.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use a different solution, but I don't recall the name. We switched because the whole of our company structure went from Microsoft to Google.

What other advice do I have?

I've been using the solution for five years. I'd suggest others to use it but caution them that it does take a while. However, it's worth it if they just bear with it. I'd rate the solution seven out… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We mainly evaluated Microsoft Office before ultimately moving to Google.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the performance. This is the reason that we chose this solution. This solution is easy to deploy and manage.

What needs improvement?

The pricing for this solution is a little bit higher than AWS and others, which is something that should be improved. This solution has no backup storage included. Having a DR solution included would help to be more competitive with Microsoft.

What other advice do I have?

We have been recommending Google Cloud Identity to our customers, but they are comparing prices with solutions such as those by Amazon and Microsoft. The prices for those solutions are lower. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Our client chose this solution because they are using Gmail and other Google products.
