Hewlett Packard Enterprise
We have quite a few visitors to our campus and we don't want to have a set PSK for the wireless so we have configured a guest network where visitors can create an account and gain access to the internet and we don't have to "manage" it since the accounts will expire after a certain time. We have RF scanners in our warehouses and we want them to be allowed on the network and be put into its own VLAN. ClearPass can do this flawlessly by keying off of the MAC address when it comes online and putting it into the correct VLAN. This makes it so we don't have to add each device individually to the system. The only time ClearPass would not be appropriate is in a small deployment where the cost to value wouldn't make sense.

Appropriate for SAP hrs hierarchy integration and can have multiple hierarchies of org structures adopted as alternative workflow support. Cons of access control are the logs of firefighter usage are still limited in depth and does not evolve to adop more cloud products which are coming at a plaster pace than the ac product as such.

  • It still uses the webdynpro for the front end. All webdynpro applications should be migrated to Fiori for a better user experience.
  • Some functionalities can't manage in mass way. I.E. building derive roles/multiple single roles,
  • Interface with LDAP is not efficient.

Usability
Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Aruba Clearpass is straight forward in terms of day to day use for monitoring and basic user connectivity issues. The system is very robust on the back end, therefore some larger configuration changes may not be the most intuitive. System upgrades and license management are not the most intuitive either.

This is a great tool for a medium to large sized company. SAP Access Control requires a great deal of SAP knowledge to use, but it is certainly information that can be learned. Their customer support is wonderful and easy to work with. The overall usability is great. I greatly recommend this software.

We had some issues with ClearPass integration with AirGroup on Aruba Controller Clusters. Basically, it was tough to get coordinated between the controller support and the ClearPass support.

This product fulfills all our requirements. We can use this for user management, role management, risk analysis, business role management, workflow management. Initial configuration takes a lot of effort. Otherwise it's a great product for the end user. SAP Access Control tool performance needs improvement, sometimes it slows down the processing time for requests.

From my experience, ClearPass has been the best NAC server of all I've seen. Even though configuration is somewhat hard and it's hard to get training, once you learn how to configure it it works very well. The policies are very granular and scalable and the interface is a well-done web GUI that does not need any extra plugins installed, as some of Cisco's product require. There are many more options than with FortiNAC, and many more integration options. Also, troubleshooting and logging is good.

Pricing was higher for the cloud version of the BTP service - IAG. SAP Access Control pretty much facilitates everything we are looking for as an enterprise with an efficient dollar cost ROI for the services we are looking for. Also, there were many features on the cloud version which came bundled with the license and we had to pay for them even though we did not actually use these products.

  • Reducing risk of fraud. Implementing SAP Access Control allows analysis of every role assigned to a job on the organization. Through this analysis, weakness on roles are detected, corrected and monitored. As the users feel the change, they also feel that they are being monitored, preventing any intent to use his position and privileges to take personal advantage. So a major impact to organizations is to reduce the financial lost due to frauds.
  • Reducing cost for monitoring. Another positive impact is lowering the cost of monitoring. This is twofold: First, a rather small team can manage access management. Second, through the use of SAP Access Control the complete universe of roles and users can be monitored without increasing the cost for the continuous monitoring.
  • During transactions. The use of SAP Access Controls allows detection of transactions that, from an information security point of view, require some redesign. When SAP GCR is implemented, you make some discoveries such as: obsolete transactions, transactions with no authorization objects and the like. The transactions with these problems can be left out of the active roles, waiting for remediation of the issues found.
