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.

Azure Active Directory

Microsoft Azure Active Directory is the gold standard for user management in the industry. It's one of the things that Microsoft does very well as far as adding a fully featured user management capability into one place. It supports oauth for web applications and is easily integrated into custom .net web apps. It also easily manages all the users and hooks directly into other Microsoft services.

Azure Active Directory

  • Conditional Access -- this is one of the biggest tools that any admin needs when it comes to securing when, where, and how users are accessing information. Especially if the information contains sensitive data types.
  • Multi-factor Authentication -- we have all our employees configured for MFA. This is incredibly easy to configure with Azure, as well as defining when MFA should be used through Conditional Access.
  • Audit Logs -- being able to track and identify a user's activity is pretty critical, especially when in incident response mode.

Cons

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM)

  • Data owner management (reports from data owner changes).
  • Exchange access reports
  • Recertification overview for admins (which was not recertified until now).
  • More webinars needed to get all the function and to get more out of the product.

Azure Active Directory

  • There are a lot of features, so it can get confusing to get to where you want to go
  • Some areas do not offer as much granularity as desired
  • Hard to find certain features that are synonymous with on-premises Active Directory

Azure Active Directory 7.9
Based on 29 answers
Microsoft has offered Azure Active Directory as a solution for a couple of decades now, so they have seen and anticipated almost any issue that an organization may face and can therefore help. The cloud offering of Azure Active Directory offers some additional "self healing" or monitoring services that can minimize the need for a service call. However, as with most large companies supporting a fast growing market, there may be some gaps in service knowledge (and particularly processing) from the front line / tier one staff as they follow a corporate script at first contact.

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.

Azure Active Directory

In our particular scenario, we chose [Microsoft] Azure Active Directory because it has integration with tools and applications we use on a day to day basis, such as inTune, Autopilot, Office 365, Exchange Online, Dynamics 365, just to named a few.

Return on Investment

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM)

  • Service desk spends a lot less time digging through events now
  • Due to the automation sets built in, staff spends less time administering basics changes

Azure Active Directory

  • AAD has saved my organization a lot of time in user setups, restoring mailboxes or individual messages, auditing logins/logoffs or data changes and running reports.
  • It added functionality we did not previously have, such as reporting on user behavior in their systems (what they work on and what applications are used).
  • My IT Support Department has benefited greatly from adding AAD by being able to see software update needs for each workstation, managing startup items running in the system, checking versions of definitions and policies applied to each workstation and much more.
