The product was just for client demo purposes. There was no deployment onsite.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the integration with the Active Directory.

What needs improvement?

To add more value to this solution it needs to be more user-friendly. This is what is really needed in the next release of this product.

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

Previously, I used Arcon as a bridge to build access management. Arcon is different from CA SSO single sign-on. I changed jobs and in this new location, Arcon was deployed.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody considering this solution is to always create their use cases so that they can do a complete and thorough POC before purchasing this solution.

We'd been using the previous solution for two or three years but it hasn't been able to provide us with what we needed. Currently, we're trying to… more»

What other advice do I have?

I'm an implementor, so I help clients implement the solution for their companies. We're still in the process of testing the solution. We're currently not providing services on it as we are still in the testing phase. So far, with a simple implementation of the SSO, I'd rate the solution eight out of… more»
