Pros
"Comprehensive coverage of the required features for the PAM solution."

More Symantec Privileged Access Manager Pros →

"Zero Trust implementation is a great feature.""The most valuable feature is single sign-on.""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.""The most valuable feature is the User Experience Designer, which has been very helpful for our project.""Its value is when you use it with a Workspace ONE UEM solution as it is part of the ecosystem for VMware Workspace ONE."

Cons
"The management console could be improved."

More Symantec Privileged Access Manager Cons →

"We have a lot of problems when it comes to integrating with Active Directory.""I would like to have better support for multi-cloud sessions.""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.""The license could be better."

    In terms of pricing, it's reasonable if you have the Workspace ONE solution. If you don't have the full solution, it's quite expensive. There are no extra costs beyond the standard licensing fee.
