Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The initial setup is straightforward. It takes me up to an hour and a half.""I found the solution to be stable.""The setup, via cloud, is simple.""If anyone makes an error, or if an incident occurs by accident, the business will not be harmed as a result of this activity.""The user self-service program and the Office 365 provisioning service feature are the most valuable. It is a very easy and feature-rich solution that gives priority to the users and security.""The most valuable features of CyberArk Identity are its ability to control access to administrative staff."

More CyberArk Identity Pros →

"Its value is when you use it with a Workspace ONE UEM solution as it is part of the ecosystem for VMware Workspace ONE.""One of the features that I enjoyed most was the integration with Azure AD because I could use VMware Identity Manager to standardize the User Principal Name coming from Active Directory. You have Azure AD Connect to do that. In between, if you have vIDM handling it, you can easily get the synchronization of users into your VM and standardize the User Principal Name. If you require quality assurance for handling it, you can actually count on the vIDM to do so. That was one of the main things I enjoyed about the product.""Zero Trust implementation is a great feature."

Cons
"The user interface could be improved.""More integrations would be better.""They could improve their UI and make everything more user-friendly.""The solution could be easier to use and I found it to be very complex involving many steps.""CyberArk Identity could improve by having the ability to better manage the network, such as Cisco. There seem to be some issues in this area.""They can include the Mobile Device Management (MDM) feature."

More CyberArk Identity Cons →

"The license could be better.""vIDM could be improved with the multi-tenant capabilities that VMware tends to offer—features like customization branding and the integration of the app catalog based on the branding. Since the integration has been at top-level OGs, you were not able to then do rebranding if you were required to use specific user groups to highlight specific applications. At the time, I was personally opening feature requests for these things. I haven't worked with the latest release, so I don't know if these features were already deployed or not.""The mobile SSO doesn't work as well on Android."
