CA Identity Manager review by <span>Renato C.</span>

One of the leaders undoubtfully

What do you like best?

CA IdentityMinder is a very good product, it allows very easily as a user to approve requests and if configured properly it can automate through workflows a lot of the stuff one used to do manually. Being able to write custom adapters for all kinds of endpoints is also a big plus, especially since now it supports Java which is lie an industry standard if you would.

As a deliverer it is quite difficult to setup, it needs quite a few components but being able to determine graphically the approval workflows is definitely a big big plus. Finding orphaned accounts is also quite simple.

Last but not least, self-service functions for end-users and strong password policy enforcement are two other pros of this solution.

What do you dislike?

As I said above, IdentityMinder is quite heavy on the infrastructure side and requires a lot of work to set it up quite right. Workflows are necessary tasks to get going to avoid doing everything manually which is quite complicated on IdentityMinder.

Also it is not such a good idea having two different repositories to get two-ways synchronization. Design could be simpler.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need Identity Management without integrating in a bigger suite it could really be what you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

User id management and centralization, clean and controlled identities accross all softwares and systems. All users can now use a single user and password without having a specific SSO solution and without having to remeber dozens of different passwords with different expiration dates.

CA Identity Minder - My Review

What do you like best?

Very secure way to reset user passwords. However we really do not use this product to it's fullest potential. I feel like it could do so much more for us.

What do you dislike?

Somewhat slow and not always reliable. We have had multiple instances where the hosted version of CA Identity Minder had become non responsive and we have had to resort back to using AD to perform unlocks and password resets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Secure manner in which to reset user passwords and unlock accounts.

What Privileged Access Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Implemented CA IdentityMinder as my company's primary identity provider/provisioning solution.

What do you like best?

I like the granular control over users' rights based on department.

What do you dislike?

The entire product is not very user-friendly, difficult to implement, difficult to troubleshoot, and difficult to customize.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Other products in a similar price point are easier to implement and manage; however, CA does have a few good features compared to others. My best recommendation is to do a side-by-side comparison with a couple of other products to see how each stacks up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We implemented IdentityMinder as a better, easier-to-manage alternative to Active Directory for our 35000+ retail store users who did not require the other benefits provided by having an Active Directory account (email, workstation access, etc.)

IdentityMinder is an excellent user provisioning solution

What do you like best?

Simple to use and easy to implement user provisioning

What do you dislike?

Identity Management with no independent access control mechanism, sometimes hard to configure with websphere

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a good Identity Management solution if you can hire good administrators and train them on the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Huge benefits for Identity Management across any big or large organization
