Symantec Identity Governance and Administration Valuable Features

Out-of-the-box connectors have a lot of opportunities for configuration. The governance port and business rules are difficult. At a certain point, the product discovers dormant accounts because it monitors which accounts are active but which are not being used. So it will perform some service on these dormant accounts that are not active for six months or maybe never used before. This is a good feature. We also have a dynamic workflow, with approval stages which helps validate the ID.  

They have a form designer, which is good because you can create exactly what you want as far as access controls. They have value-added modules like the one they have for asset management. This means that when you are in the role of a manager in CA IDM, you are able to restrict access to certain types of laptops — maybe by mobile provider, maybe by core type. So if a user tries to access the system with an asset of a certain type, we can allow it. It is a value-add, not necessarily related to the user distinctly. But if you take it from the point of view of asset management, it also helps in tracking the assets, which is another interesting outcome.

This solution is very easy to use. Once it's been configured correctly, it's very easy to use, but it's not an easy tool to configure. Technically speaking, you need a lot of knowledge to make it run properly.

Self-registration and self-service password management are valuable features. The role modeling feature is also very useful. It allows you to model your enterprise role.

I like that it is easy to diagnose. It has a version of a virtual appliance so we can download it, run it, configure it, and it would take about 10 to 15 minutes to configure the cluster or so.

It's easy to deploy, it's two versions, the manual deployment version, if it can be prepared in clusters it'll take one or two days. But the software appliance will take from 15 to 20 minutes.
