SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM)

Best suited: It is best suited for companies who don't want to worry too much about access rights. The initial workload may be huge, based on the current rights situation in your company, but after setting everything up the time to change or review permissions has dropped drastically. Not suited: If you want to specify permissions on a Folder and have them overwritten each time someone makes a change, ARM is not the product for you.

Azure Active Directory

If the organization has current or planned investment in Microsoft (i.e. Windows devices for people, is an Office 365 customer, etc), Azure Active Directory is a no brainer and the basic functionality is included in the base plans and licenses. If the organization needs a deeper level of identity management and/or has a high volume of object turn over (account provisioning and deletion), the limit of the basic functionality in Azure Active Directory is quickly realized and additional effort, expense, and technology may be required.

Pros

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM)

  • Auditing is simplified for user permissions and access to corporate resources. The flow diagrams show which group is granting access.
  • Provisioning if user accounts is simplified and standardized along with easy detection of scope creep.

  • AAD is super easy to set up! One thing I was nervous about was deployment. However, after reading the setup instructions, I was pleased to find this a very simple process and well detailed in the instructions.
  • AAD works! It simply does it's job. I have not had to monitor it, troubleshoot it, nor reinstall or tinker with it in any way. Making changes is very quick and easy also allowing you to quickly modify how the sync occurs, whether one-direction from your server to Azure only, or bi-directional where it will sync both ways, or only from Azure to your local AD. You have the options and the control to make it work for your environment!
  • AAD has a ton of tools, logs, data that combined provides a great look into what your users are doing, how it is being done and if any error exist it will provide very useful information about it so that you can resolve the matter.

Cons

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM)

  • The GUI can be misleading at times in terms of what you're actually looking for
  • Cumbersome in some places
Rob Bates | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure Active Directory

  • In my opinion, Azure Active Directory's dashboard pages are way too busy and difficult to navigate.
  • Azure Active Directory doesn't handle duplicate attributes in user accounts very well.
  • Azure Active Directory pesters the admin to buy additional features by cluttering up the GUI with "suggestions" that you can't remove from the dashboard.

Support is handled offshore and you must send in a request and then schedule a callback. Near real-time support is very problematic. Additionally, you will go through the tiering system. Level one staff at Microsoft have a lot of checkboxes to go through before you are handed to the next tier.Communication with offshore tech support is a true challenge.

Azure Active Directory

We never evaluate other types of products. Since Windows 2000 we have been using Active Directory for the administration and management of our users, devices, and policies. We could certainly see the advances that are produced version by version and I firmly believe that Azure AD is the correct evolution and the way forward. It simplifies our work and manages our structure efficiently and clearly.

Return on Investment

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM)

  • SolarWinds Access Rights Manager does what we purchased it to do without issues.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure Active Directory

  • With several pricing tiers provided by Microsoft, it's easy to find the right solution for you and to ensure you're not overpaying for features you do not need.
  • The analysis and reporting tools in Azure AD exist, but are a bit limited, which could have a negative impact on larger companies looking to closely monitor their user's activity.
  • Overall, Azure Active Directory has saved us time and resources when creating and managing new employee accounts.
