Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Azure Active Directory features have helped improve our security posture. The remote working has been a massive help during the pandemic.""Azure Active Directory has useful policy assigning and management.""Multi-factor authentication (MFA) has improved our customers' security posture. Multi-factor authentication has two layers of authentication, which helps in case you input your credentials into a phishing website and then it has access to your credentials. So if they use your credentials, then you have proof on your phone that was sent to the end user.""Azure Active Directory is a very simple utility to use, it has very good visibility and transparency, and an easy-to-use panel.""In terms of identity management, it helps to improve security posture. It generally helps in terms cloud security, simplicity, and single sign-on for multiple apps.""The solution has a variety of tools. Two of the most valuable features are the ability to create users and to replicate the user account from on-premise to the cloud.""As an end-user, the access to shared resources that I get from using this product is very helpful.""The most valuable feature is the ability to deploy and make changes to every workstation that I need to. We use it to control policy and I can apply the right policies to all our 1,500 workstations, notebooks, et cetera."

"Their access management solution, OpenAM, is most valuable because it meets the needs of a lot of users.""ForgeRock has CIAM, which other products didn't have, and they have DevOps ready.""We create and define the permissions and configurations for the users.""Even though we have very small business interests with them today, they see that we plan on growing drastically over the next two years. Therefore, we have excellent support and we are now at a point where we are not calling tech support. We pick up a phone and call the Account Manager and they'll get everything resolved for us. We don't have to queue along with everybody else and go through a long process.""The solution integrates well and it is important for them to keep up with the current trends in the market quickly enough, and they have been doing a good job at it.""The solution is very scalable. We have a lot of users that have been increasing over the years that we have been using it. We have approximately 20,000 users.""I like the intelligent authentication feature."

"The product was built to be scalable.""Once it is set up, it is easy to use and it integrates with most of the products on the market.""From a technical perspective, the solution is very good we can operate and control the user by ourselves.""In general, the customization that is offered is very good. The company that I am working with currently is using this feature quite extensively.""The product allows customization via custom code."

Cons
"The support for identification to the application environment could be improved, e.g., Active Directory Federation Services should be implemented in other applications. They need something like software development kits (SDKs) for integration with our own applications, which is not so easy to implement. We would also like synchronization of identities between identities in applications like Azure.""The support could be better. Lately, they sort of dropped off a bit in terms of quality.""The Cloud Provisioning Agent cannot provision a lot of the information that AD Connect does. For starters, the lightweight version cannot synchronize device information. If you have computers on-premises, the information about them will not be synchronized by the Cloud Provisioning Agent. In addition, if you have a user on the cloud and he changes his password, that information should be written back to the on-premises instance. But that workflow cannot be done with the lightweight agent. It can only be done with the more robust version.""There are some features, where if you want to access them, then you need to make use of PowerShell. If someone is not really versed in PowerShell scripting, then they would definitely have issues using some of those features in Azure Active Directory.""The conditional access rules are a little limiting. There's greater scope for the variety of rules and conditions you could put in that rules around a more factual authentication for other users. If you have an Azure AD setup, you can then connect to other people's Azure AD, but you don't have a huge amount of control in terms of what you can do. Greater control over guest users and guest access would be better. It's pretty good as it is but that could be improved.""An area where there is room for improvement is the ease of use of the dashboards.""In a hybrid deployment, when we update a license by changing the UPN or email address of a user, it does not get updated automatically during normal sync. This means that we have to update it manually from Azure, which is something that needs to be corrected.""The initial setup was complex."

More Azure Active Directory Cons →

"I find that it's quite expensive for just an open-source system. Support is quite expensive.""It should have a better user interface. Its flexibility should also be improved. It is not about simplifying; it is more about flexibility. Each company has its own requirements, and ForgeRock can provide more flexibility in terms of the use of existing modules to implement features for the customers.""We're worried about the scaling. We're told it will be okay and there won't be issues, however, I'm not 100% convinced.""In an upcoming release, the solution could improve by limiting the need to do customizations.""The solution requires more simplified customization. However, part of the problem is my clients determining their own preferences. Technology can help and do many things, but you have to define your own policies to ensure that the solution or service works within those parameters. Helping customers understand their business and different processes is another issue not relating to the functionality of this solution.""Automatic Deployment needs improvement. it could be made easier.""It should be a little bit easier to implement. It is user-friendly, but there is always scope for improvement."

More ForgeRock Cons →

"The pricing of the solution is in need of improvement. Oracle products are very expensive.""There are problems with stability.""The initial implementation can definitely be improved because you have to work on several components to configure it correctly.""The technical support is not very good at all.""There could be some improvements in the documentation and overall knowledge base of the solution.""The product is complicated and difficult to install and configure."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis and the cost depends on the number of users."
  • "This product is sold as part of the enterprise package and our licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis."
  • "MFA and P2 licenses for two Azures for fully-enabled scenarios and features cost a lot of money. This is where Okta is trying to get the prices down."
  • "We are a non-profit organization, so we get good prices from Microsoft for their products. It is working well, but it could be cheaper. For the type of organization we are, it would be good if they could give a little bit more and be more generous like Google, which has completely free services. Microsoft has free versions or web services called Office 365 E1, which is free for use, but we want to have it with more qualified clients."
  • "We pay about $35 per user."
  • "I think we're on the E3 — I think it was about 35 dollars per user."
  • "We got a good deal. If you get rid of all the products providing features that Azure Suite can provide, then it makes sense cost-wise."
  • "Microsoft has a free version of Azure AD. So, if you don't do a lot of advanced features, then you can use the free version, which is no cost at all because it is underpinning Office 365. Because Microsoft gives it to you as a SaaS, so there are no infrastructure costs whatsoever that you need to incur. If you use the free version, then it is free. If you use the advanced features (that we use), it is a license fee per user."

  • "It's a bit pricey and could be more competitive."
  • "We have multiple clients we are looking at right now. We are at a very small number, however, the idea and the goal is to grow. We are looking at about $100,000 and $50,000 a minimum a month cost. That'd be minimum maybe in a couple of years."
  • "Its price is comparable to other products in the market."
  • "Its licensing is on a yearly basis, but it also depends on the contract that you have with the vendor. They have multiple types of contracts. There are additional costs to the standard licensing fees. If you need some of the features, you have to pay more."
  • "The license is purchased annually per user. However, you can negotiate if you are signing for a longer period of time. When comparing this solution to others on the market it is priced fair, it is not at the top of the price range or at the bottom end."
  • "The pricing of the solution is fair but I do not have the full details."
  • More ForgeRock Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The price is really good and it is flexible because they have CPU licenses. The license is a one-time-only purchase."
