Best Autehntication software

What do you like best?

CA technologies cam up with a wonderful product for authentication, authorization and accounting, which is the siteminder. Its rock stable and no issues found at any point of time. After the upgrade from 6.0 to 12.0 we observed enormous improvement in the performance and the software is much stable as compared to other competitors in the market.

What do you dislike?

Not only me, anyone would first say about what they dislike about CA siteminder is the cost. The cost of software and the cost of setup, and the cost for the support hit sky during the implementation phase. we worked on so many products but this one crossed others a par in terms of cost. Even the support is very limited and the documentation is less for this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you are looking for rock solid authentication software, please go with CA siteminder.

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

We used this software for web authentication for online users. We even configured the single sign on with this software. performance was the best thing we liked.

SiteMinder - The Best of the Best

What do you like best?

SiteMinder simply does exactly what CA says it can do and that is to provide a solid, reliable, robust solution for Single Sign-On, Web Access Control, Identity Federation.

What do you dislike?

I have no dislikes. Any feature deemed deficient by CA's clients/customers is addressed through improved product, bug fixes, customized solutions. There are very few use cases the "out of the box" product is unable to achieve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to understand your goals for the enterprise; plan for training; utilize in-house expertise and CA Support; establish a solution specification that includes requirements, integration, implementation and maintenance.

Most environments have existing critical apps with Proprietary authentication, consider the cost to SSO enable old apps; factor in additional time/delays for troubleshooting complex custom web applications; get lots of performance testing feedback to tune your solution to.

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

SSO on a global scale can be a challenge. So many factors need to be clearly understood. SiteMinder has always improved the time-to-market for web applications requiring SSO, Web Access Management, Integration with the Windows desktop, multi-factor authentication or Identity Federation, SiteMinder is the logical direction for large enterprises, Federal, State and local govts. Its features are our benefits, realized.

What Single Sign On (SSO) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

CA SiteMinder - Excellent product from CA Technologies

What do you like best?

Single Sign-On, Federation Services (That comes along with Siteminder R12 Version). SiteMinder able to authenticate and authorize using various LDAP Directories and Databases. IPCheck and SmWalker are some of the features that are very helpful. They are not only easy to setup but works well with other integrated components as well.

What do you dislike?

Admin GUI for Siteminder R12 version is bit slow. CA support should look into this and come up with something better.

Nothing much to dislike as quality of product (CA Siteminder) is very good

Recommendations to others considering the product

CA Siteminder is much better than other existing SSO products available in the market.

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

Upgrading Siteminder R6 to R12. Migration from existing R6 version to Siteminder newer version was done with lot of ease. One benefit I would like to mention is that siteminder r12 comes up with integration federation services. so we migrated our existing Oracle Identity Federation setup to Siteminder R12 Federation services.

CA Siteminder: Enterprise Security Layer showing off ease of integration, modularity, performance

What do you like best?

CA Siteminder boasts flexibility of configuration as well as architecture modularity which are key to a successful integration in enterprise environments. SSO features, Federation capabilities and standard RFC implementations get the product in the leader quadrant for Access Management and Web Security

What do you dislike?

CA Siteminder, from version 12 on, has replaced its GUI (applet-style) into a web-gui: unfortunately, even though the choice has been the right one, the web-gui implementation is not, let's say, web2.0-wise. Poor implementation and no use of Ajax capabilites bring more pain in configuring Siteminder nowadays.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to secure a medium-big company web-tier, this is the product with a level of solid background, modularity and granularity needed in such environments.

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

Especially Enterprise Companies' architectures, giving the customer a solid and flexible security layer upon their new as well as legacy applications, intranet and internet.

It combines the power of a reliable, identity federated single sign-on solution with the benefits of a cloud-based service with just one set of credentials.In addition, end users receive a more convenient single sign on experience that is consistent with how they access applications within their organization’s domain.

Amazing Single-sign-on and Federation product.

What do you like best?

Very good architecture that scales for very high volume.

Intuitive user interface (It had issues when they released R12 but it has since improved substantially).

Supports strong authentication like RSA, ArcotID, etc.

Can integrate with most Directories and Databases out of the box.

Agents for most of the web servers, application servers, SharePoint, Peoplesoft, SAP, secure proxy server, etc.

High quality 24/7 Support -- quite responsive.

Widely used. A market leading product.

Relatively easy to learn.

A lot of new features are being added to latest versions to support mobile, social, agent less solutions, for Web service/ SOA support, etc.

What do you dislike?

User Interface can be improved for better readability.

Tighter integration with CA Directory (like Advanced AD Integration would be nice to have).

Federation component has scope for improvement.

Go for it!
