Helps us to manage user profiles very quickly and in an assertive way
Pros and Cons
  • "The most useful feature is the governance feature, because it can show us and help us to manage user profiles very quickly and using it in assertive way."
  • "Right now, it's not easy to start using this solution. You have to take long course and train people. It's not an easy path."

What is our primary use case?

The solution is used to authenticate users from the company and their clients. We have companies like banks and we provide authentication solutions for their own workers, but also for their clients that have money in the bank and manage that money. So, the solution is very wide and can comprehend many kinds of users, third-party users and coworkers and clients.

We are using the most updated version.

What is most valuable?

The most useful feature is the governance feature, because it can show us and help us to manage user profiles very quickly and in an assertive way.

What needs improvement?

Right now, it's not easy to start using this solution. You have to take a long course and train people. It's not an easy path.

Something that could be added is more user-friendly screens that could help to facilitate the management.

For how long have I used the solution?

As an architect, I have worked with this solution as a partner for a long time. The company I work for has been a partner for the last 10 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable and works very well.

How are customer service and support?

The technical support is good. When I had an issue, I always had the appropriate help.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup has been easy.

We have about 10 people working for us for deployment and maintenance. As we worked for many clients, I think that one or two specialists with a good knowledge would do all the work for one company.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution 9 out of 10. 

I would advise that they should evaluate other possibilities because this is a very quickly changing environment and there are other possible providers that have good solutions. I would do some kind of test. I would test other possible solutions too and compare them.
