How has it helped my organization?

Other than it provides us with remote access, so it's fairly easy to install, fairly easy to set up, and provides us the ability to get into our corporate environment.

What needs improvement?

I've been using it so long I'm used to the way that it works, so it really doesn't have any problem as far as I can tell. I check for updates a lot. I reset it sometimes. I can show my credential ID, so it works very well.

What other advice do I have?

If you're looking for a fairly lightweight client that works very well for remote access purposes, I think Symantec is definitely a good product. As much as a lot of people bad-mouth Symantec, just based on the Broadcom acquisition last year, I think this product is one of Symantec's best. It competes very well with Boomi.

What is most valuable?

Some of the features that are the most valuable are both the VPN and the interface. The VPN we are using is good and working quite well. We are in the process of using all of the server access with cloud access.

What other advice do I have?

What do you think of Symantec VIP Access Manager?

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is to generate digital code to login to my email and network. This solution is part of our requirement for multifactor authentication when logging into the network from outside the office. We are currently using the latest version of the product.

How has it helped my organization?

It offers more platform support, like Apple, Android, and Microsoft.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to use. I use it when traveling.

What needs improvement?

In the next release, I would like the ability to work offline with remote access. Sometimes, there is no connectivity. Every time that I have a new phone or computer, it takes a little longer to deploy it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is okay. …

What is Symantec VIP Access Manager?

Symantec VIP Access Manager is the next generation control platform that integrates Single Sign-On (SSO) with strong authentication, access control, and user management. It offers users and administrators control, convenience, and compliance for public and private cloud- based applications. Symantec VIP Access Manager solves cloud security problems using identity and/or context-based access control across multiple cloud applications. In the cloud, where a traditional enterprise perimeter doesn't exist, this solution fills the gap. Through Symantec VIP Access Manager, administrators can define policies that utilize the built-in user directory or existing identity management infrastructure to enforce security and compliance for applications without getting in the way of productivity. Symantec VIP Access Manager can also protect and consolidate access management for on-premise web applications. It also simplifies compliance auditing for cloud applications by consolidating logs across all applications it protects.
