Avatier
Ease of use and a very customer focused catalog process. Would like service now functionality implemented with the tool so teams can user 1 work tool to work from. The access governance process is very well designed and extremely useful for our organization to be able to identify users that have the inappropriate access levels for their current roles

AWS Identity & Access Management is well suited to managing AWS application access between services. Very helpful for both third-party products and in-house developed software. Very happy with how easy it is to create access keys and then share them in our environment. AWS IAM can also be used to manage individual users, but I highly recommend using AWS SSO for that purpose instead. Much easier to deploy for console access and from a security side easier to turn off in one click from your SSO provider.

Cons
Avatier
  • The only issue I have come across is that if a user begins to reset their password, but doesn't remember all of their security questions, sometimes the tool triggers a reset even if they didn't successfully reset themselves. This becomes a problem in an environment that has password complexity requirements, such as not being able to change your password again within a 24 hour period.

  • Better integration with roles and policies so you don't need three windows open to create a new IAM user
  • Display recommended configurations based on services being used
  • Easier options to base config on existing users

While we do not use Microsoft Azure for our servers and other customer-facing services. If we did, we would have to use Microsoft Azure Active Directory to manage access to services appropriately. It's difficult to quantify the differences between the services as they are truly different. I would recommend choosing AWS or Azure, then using the identity management provided by the same vendor.

Return on Investment
Avatier
  • The main positive is the number of calls into our help desk or LAN team have gone down to a few calls a week; instead of the masses going to them on a daily basis.

  • Without IAM, it would be difficult to use AWS across services. Increased ROI
