"Enterprise Access Management"

What do you like best?

This tool is used to provide single sign-on / federated access to a suite of Java applications and reporting/collaboration tools.

Licensing for this tool is calculated based on the number of users accessing the applications behind it so determining cost is as simple as counting the number of active accounts.

The current versions of this tool can be installed as services on standard Redhat Enterprise servers which allows for easy integration into an environment where this operating system is already utilized.

What do you dislike?

While we have been able to configure a large number of applications to sit behind the NAM, there are some applications that cannot be configured to do so. An example of one of these applications is Cisco Show & Share. When users access this tool, a component (WOWZA) wants the client to talk directly to it on a port other than 80 or 443. While this issue could be resolved by Cisco and NetIQ is not to blame, it is something that should be considered when bringing a tool like NAM into one's environment. Of course, be sure to perform careful analysis of your existing apps, but also think hard about apps that may be introduced in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As I said earlier in this review, be sure to perform careful compatibility analysis of both existing and future applications.

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

This tool has been used to allow customers to provide credentials only once in order to access a suite of applications (single sign-on) and has also been used to allow Federated access. The benefits realized by introducing this functionality are improved convenience for users by only having to enter credentials once and improved user management.

"Flexible, secure and well supported"

What do you like best?

Simple integration with Password Self Service (separate product) to provide integrated password expiry management.

SAML IDP support which we use for a number partner cloud and internal services. Works with latest Shibboleth service provider which is great for education and research institutions.

Additional security from access gateway allows you to completely restrict access to a web service. This protects from the usual url probing sites experience looking for vulnerabilities in site code. Also ability to support legacy web applications via form filling it extremely useful to provide SSO features for users whilst providing that extra layer of security.

Excellent support documents and their support people are very good. I have over the the years had a couple of SR opened and resolved very satisfactorily.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit of a step learning curve to understand the architecture, but it pays off to do so.

More out of the box integrations with two factor authentication providers would be good. It isn't hard to do your self as it is a very flexible system, but you do need some basic java skills or a good consultant.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Flexible and supportive company. You can get answers to your questions, you might need to find the right person but it can be done. This is not my experience with a lot of other companies.

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

Streamlined access to resources for staff and students.

Reduced support calls for expired passwords. With the Password Self Service integration, users are prompted to update their password when it expires. It also provides a consistent login experience.

The biggest improvement for user is spend less time constantly logging in which used to be a common complaint.

What Privileged Access Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Simple to use but full of options"

What do you like best?

SAML configuration is a breeze when provided metadata.

The option to form fill and proxy sites that don't offer SAML is convenient.

Little to no coding experience necessary to deploy product.

What do you dislike?

Infrastracture components can be complex to deploy but I think that that may have improved in recent versions.

Administration of the system is sluggish in a DR situation where components are cut off from each other.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A good, well supported product for the price.

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

SSO and federation for internal and SaaS applications.
