Symantec Siteminder Room for Improvement

Sr IAM/PAM Engineer at a retailer with 10,001+ employees

An area Siteminder could improve on is that there are a few limitations, in terms of new protocols for OpenID. If I want to have different scopes, the features are limited. They also do not have APIs exposed, which is a major drawback. API is a feature I would like to see included in the next release.

The performance could be better.

The support could be faster. 

Sometimes when your customer has a legacy application and they want to make a single sign-on, you cannot do it with SiteMinder.

The solution doesn't support client-based Java. 

You do need to be pretty comfortable with the product in order to use it. 

The product needs to invest in enhancements. They are not innovating anything lately. The competition is beginning to pull ahead of them and they are getting left behind. 

The cost of the product is a bit high.

Some of the new protocols, like OAuth 2.0, could be improved.

It would be nice to see a better cloud-based solution that's both easy and accessible for all organizations.
