SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM)

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager is ideal for companies using Active Directory. It allows you to manage all employees' permissions from one location. Besides that, it is also great for cybersecurity experts to visualize all the permissions within the company, to audit them and make sure no one has too many permissions. Considering the scope of the applications, it would be most-suited for medium to large companies.

IBM Security Verify Access, formerly IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM)

IBM Security Identity and Access Manager is well-suited for larger organizations who can take advantage of the powerful features without being overwhelmed by the initial investments of both time and resources. It is advantageous for any company that wants to provide secure protection of both internal and external (client) information. The added bonus of threat management mitigation was an unforeseen bonus.

Alternatives Considered

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM)

We looked at Okta, Sailpoint, and some others but they were cost prohibitive and we needed to slap something together quickly and these required a lot of planning before implementation. Planning is a good thing and would certainly have helped but I wasn't given the option of moving the launch date. Given those constraints, this was really the only option.

We evaluated Oracle Identity Manager and were ready to move ahead with the purchase plan, but then found that IBM addressed the needs of our company in a more robust fashion. The price was significantly higher, yet in the grand scheme of things, the safety of both our data and the data of our clients was the most important criteria.
