My company uses multiple solutions, and one of them is IBM Security Access Manager. In general, I would rate IBM Security Access Manager eight out of ten because its scalability is good. As a product, it's good, for example, it has good features. It's only the support that has an issue. I would recommend IBM Security Access Manager to users running IBM environments, otherwise, the market has many simplified solutions. If your company has IBM tools and an IBM environment, it's a must for me to recommend IBM Security Access Manager because using the solution would be easier for you. Otherwise, there's no limitation as the market is open and you'd find multiple, good solutions in the market. My company has a partnership with IBM.

I would advise looking for a product with good performance and advanced functionalities, especially on the security side. There should be stability and up-to-date or latest functionalities. Generally, if a product is stable, it doesn't have advanced functions, and if a product is highly advanced, it may not be stable. You should try to find a combination of both. It also depends on your requirements. Some people have small-scale usage, and performance might not be their concern, but security should always be a priority. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

We use the on-premises deployment model. Typically we deal with enterprise-level organizations. We're an IBM partner and reseller. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

The license and costs depend on the amount range of users you have. For just approximately 2,000 users, the price is practical and fair. However, when you have 20,000 users, it starts to become really expensive, and the discount per user is not attractive enough to go ahead and purchase. We only have a budget for approximately 7,000 users, having more users would be too expensive for us. For small or medium-sized businesses they cannot afford this solution.

I'm unable to give information on the pricing for IBM Security Access Manager because what IBM gave me is just for me personally and it's just the starting price, while a better price offering could have been given to others.
