What is most valuable?

The feature that I find most valuable is the security layer of the identity and access management solution. The ability to secure on-premise and cloud-based workloads and to provide seamless authentication into hybrid workloads. In addition to cloud-based authentication, we've also got advanced… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We're a partner and a reseller. We're a Microsoft Gold Partner and Cloud Platform, and we have achieved the Microsoft competency at the highest level due to our commitment to delivering successful solutions in both on-premises and cloud-based environments. So we are a Microsoft delivery partner and… more»

What needs improvement?

In terms of the identity and access management solution for an on-premise environment, I think Microsoft needs to eliminate or minimize the number of workloads for the solution to run in an on-premise environment. For example, you need more instances, more servers on-premise for the whole solution… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to someone implementing this solution would be to implement the on-premise identity and access management solution if they've got more than 1,000 identities on-premise. I strongly recommend implementing an on-premise environment in that case, or if they are a financial institution, such as… more»

What is most valuable?

With Microsoft Identity Manager, most of the time the organizations actually agree that it is a primary benefit to use them. Since Identity Manager is from Microsoft… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I deploy the products for my different customers as an offer for my organization. We will deploy this product with 95% of the customers that I'm working with… more»

What needs improvement?

If we compare this Microsoft Identity Manager with Okta or OneLogin, both provide multiple connectors and box connectors. Whereas with Microsoft Identity Manager, there… more»

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

Microsoft Identity Manager comes with the premium or community license. If the customer doesn't have a premium license, the reseller who sells the licenses of Microsoft to… more»

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

I have deployed Microsoft for multiple customers but I haven't done the migration from one identity manager product to MIM. I have deployed various products. I haven't… more»

What other advice do I have?

The out of the box connectors need to be increased. We can integrate with multiple applications to connect together through using Microsoft Identity Manager. I would grade… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was evaluating OneLogin and since I don't have experience with other software, I had to recommend Microsoft Identity Manager on the basis of customer requirements.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of the solution is the fact that I can use it to track who is sending which email, who is accessing which documents or which files, etc. These tools help me improve security within the enterprise environment.

What needs improvement?

Support needs improvement. It is very easy to get somebody to help with the implementation of the Microsoft product itself, but when it comes to support it's a challenge as an IT team. You have to tell people, "Well we need to get back to Microsoft" and that can take forever. Sometimes the waiting process really gets you stuck. If you have deployed a feature in your environment and you're using it… more»

What other advice do I have?

Over the years Microsoft has improved a lot. We don't have problems like we used to have in previous versions. There's still more room for improvement, however. They have begun listening to their customers, and they are bringing out features that customers are asking for and if I can get that from an OEM it gives me the assurance that everyone is being taken care of. I would recommend the… more»

What is most valuable?

This is an all-encompassing product. The features that we find most valuable are security, mobility, and Single Sign-On.

What needs improvement?

They have to improve the User Entity and Behavioral Analysis. They have all of these features, scattered around in different components. For example, if a user logs into a computer, from that point the behavior is not completely monitored. Windows Defender is monitoring the action, but if you go into the website, the solution is not capable of understanding it. Therefore, in the case of a user… more»

What other advice do I have?

I strongly recommend this solution. It encompasses the cloud, on-premises applications, mobility, and on-premises users. The modern enterprise encrypted license is one of the best solutions to go for because of the mobility and security for the workforce, as well as for the company. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable and most interesting feature is the conditional access. It can provide a low formulation combination based on the extra files that we can work on to verify the solution.

What needs improvement?

The information that is available for the Active Directory portal is segregated here and there. It's not in one single location where you can see, for example, all of the security features and maybe the customization feature. In the next release of this solution, I would like to see the… more»

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

Our previous system was based on an on-premises solution. Now, the on-premises products are integrated with the cloud, which is what made the difference.

What other advice do I have?

I would say that it's the best solution on the market and I would go ahead with it. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it provides protection for our company documents. This product integrates with our SharePoint Global Portal.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution helps in that it adds to our security.

What needs improvement?

This product was only launched two or three years ago, and it is still in the process of becoming stable. We have to make use of the current feature set before looking for new features.

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

We began using this product because we moved to the cloud. Earlier, we were using on-premise systems and at that time, this kind of security was not needed as much.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product to a colleague at another company. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
