How has it helped my organization?

Allows users to use a single password across a set of multi-tenant application suites. This would have otherwise required 50-100 unique passwords per application. This allows the user to inject a centralized password (a.k.a. authentication... more»

What needs improvement?

The profiling element is incredibly robust, but also equally as complex, it requires an off-site course to be able to understand the context or the plethora of options available. The majority of the "IMS profiles" we use are too dangerous to... more»

What needs improvement?

Due to a constraint of the built-in browser in a Handy phone (called NTT i-Mode), the former version of TAM could not be used in the Japan market. The issue was resolved by the decline of Japan-specific Handy phones. Cookies were not... more»

What is most valuable?

A number of new features, such as application firewall and load balancer, were added to this solution. These features are no longer available as a software version, but only as an appliance (virtual or hard). The same appliance firmware... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It acts as a reverse proxy, a single point for authentication and authorization. Advanced access control introduces adaptive or risk-based authentication. Federation makes it possible to federate using SAML and OAuth.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the possibility to administer the appliances from one “master” appliance, instead of having to log in to each particular appliance. If you have for example 4 appliances, two act as reverse proxy and two as master... more»

What is most valuable?

Tivoli Access Manager's proxy product (WebSEAL) is extremely fast. The configuration options are mysterious and old-school, but they are a rich and small enough set that you can comprehend them and get it working right. The auth and policy... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Step-up authentication in WebSEAL is a hook. You write a function to a particular spec, register it, and it gets called. The hook is in C, which makes sense because WebSEAL is fast and could not be written in an interpreted or high-level... more»

What needs improvement?

What needs improvement?

I am pretty happy with the outcome so far this year. We have yet to hear from the customers. I have not updated it myself and I have not done any work with customers. Looking at their roadmap, they have a broad grasp of the security features... more»
