The ability to support the cloud solution is the most important aspect I’m looking for.

The Identity and Access Management market is still defining itself in terms of products, services and sellers. While, like in any industry, there are already market leaders, newcomers, and niche players, not all vendors (even the top ones) here offer everything possible that all organizations might need. Exercising discernment in the selection of a seller and/or a technology here is of extreme importance.

Here are 3 simple tips for evaluating an IAM vendor:

1. Be aware of who you are and what your needs are. Match vendors based on this information.
2. Look for quality delivery of the core functionalities that are essential to you.
3. Ask about implementation times, procedures and for case studies.

As the wording kind of gives away, Single Sign On makes sure a user has to log in to only one application after being automatically logged into others. The number 1 advantage of SSO is that it eases the log in experience by taking away the unnecessary friction. When evaluating vendors of SSO, one must consider the following three elements: the CAS server, a client web browser (where a cookie is to be installed) and the web application requesting for authentication.

Security, Security, Security!!! I prefer not to use it as too many variables can be at play. You have to count on other companies security. This audit can be very complex, not accessible to 'outsiders', so it's usually unverifiable. A company's word isn't good enough.

Organizations should consider what standards the solution supports and whether they are the standards the organization needs.

Important informations

Compatibility with legacy systems is the most important criterion in this case.
Check the ability to centrally manage passwords.
Integration with biometric data, smart cards and other two factor authentication systems.
Simplified compliance requirements without compromising employee productivity.

Thank you very much

SSO solution must provide a single sign-on platform for disparate systems. SSO solution must support:
i) Kerberos
ii) Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
iii) Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM)
iv) Name Service Switch (NSS)
v) Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI)

SSO is a session/user authentication process that permits a user to enter one name and password in order to access multiple applications. The process authenticates the user for all the applications they have been given rights to and eliminates further prompts when they switch applications during a particular session.
