What is most valuable?

It's valuable to us in that it resembles the native tools that most people have grown accustomed to. Most people come from another company where they may have not used Active Roles. Active Roles… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It helps mitigate risks. With traditional, native Active Directory delegation, it can become really messy, really fast. You lose oversight on who has access where. We are an acquisitions and mergers… more»

What needs improvement?

Active Roles allows policies and there are a lot of example policies that come with it. It has Access Templates and there are a lot of Access Template examples in it. It also has workflows and those… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

The reason we went with this solution - and it was ten or 15 years ago - was the Active Directory delegation. We could not allow everyone to have native access to our Active Directory. The delegation… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would give this solution a nine out of ten. There's always room for improvement. With every product, nothing is completely done. But this product is definitely up there.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered using the Microsoft solution because it's free and built-in, and already there. That's what everybody does. But when you grow beyond a certain size, you find out that it just does not… more»

* Role Based Access Control * Provisioning, Re-provisioning, De-provisioning and Undo-De-provisioning policies * Data validation policies * Workflows * If Then Else… more»

How has it helped my organization?

* Heavily Automates - it will automate the entire provisioning, re-provisioning, de-provisioning and undo-de-provisioning tasks * Complete Audit Trail - it gives an audit… more»

What needs improvement?

* Web console – it should have more customization options in terms of look and feel of the landing page * Workflow policies – Additional policies for folder access… more»

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

It’s a gentleman’s agreement. Licensing is based on Enabled User Accounts in AD. This should include user accounts, application accounts and service accounts.Temporary… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I did not use any other solution.

What other advice do I have?

This product has tremendous potential. It can be used to automate a lot of day to day activities. I always tell my customers, list down all your requirements, pain areas… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate other products.

What is most valuable?

The delegation feature is really important. It is one of the most valuable features that our customers appreciate about the solution. The provisioning and deprovisioning saves a lot of time and skips a lot of errors. For the AD management feature, it is perfect. It covers everything.

How has it helped my organization?

We are working with a customer now who is having some problems with their permissions and delegations, because a lot of users have to do administration activities in the Active Directory. Now, they have been given domain administrators. However, with this solution, they are skipping all the domain… more»

What needs improvement?

For the AAD management feature, it needs to improve the objects that we can manage and the security. I know that they have everything in road map, so they probably will include everything in a year or a year and a half. I would like them to support a cloud solution. This is important for us. They… more»

What other advice do I have?

Test it. Whenever you test it in your real environment, you normally want it. If you talk with an AD administrator about this solution and you display the features: How you save time, how you avoid errors, etc. It's a really good product. The main problem is getting companies to pay money for the… more»

What is most valuable?

* It provides automatic provisioning/update/deprovisioning workflows from a source system to a target system. * It allows you to easily monitor all workflow processes. *… more»

How has it helped my organization?

When a new employee is hired, we create a new Active Directory (AD) user in a related department (Organizational Unit) with a random generated password, then give that… more»

What needs improvement?

For ActiveRoles, it would be good if the product supports multi-scripting language. You can use only VBScript. VB.net , C#, or Powershell scripting would be a good choice… more»

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

The licensing model is a simple user-based model, not that much complicated.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have not used any similar products before. We did all related operations manually.

What other advice do I have?

It is very important to come together with system owners who will be integrated at the beginning of the project to clarify all the rules and determine the work to be done… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated and researched other options, such as NetIQ, FIM, Oracle, CA, IBM, and SailPoint. However, Active Roles is most suitable for us.

What is most valuable?

It gives us attribute-level control and the AD management features work very well.

How has it helped my organization?

It's improved things because we don't have "cowboy changes" being made to AD without us knowing about it. People still have to do the things they need to do, but we can now make sure that they don't inadvertently do something they… more»

What needs improvement?

For what we use it for, there are no additional features it would need.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously, people were able to update AD directly. We have reduced that by pushing everything through Active Roles. Our decision to go with this solution was part of the need to lock things down, make things more secure.

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to certainly consider Active Roles and, depending on the size of the organization, consider integrating it with Starling as well. I know the solution is extensible through cloud-delivered services but we don't use those… more»

What is most valuable?

The built-in templates within ARS allow you to create security groups without having to construct them on your own. It greatly simplifies the process and is also makes it much easier to review if you ever need to make changes.

How has it helped my organization?

ARS gives us the ability to provide granular control that AD just doesn't offer. Having a tool to manage all changes to AD from a single pane of glass is awesome. It also allows Help Desk personnel to get up to speed very quickly without having a strong technical background.

What needs improvement?

The ability to send logs to a SIEM would be very beneficial.
