Avatier Identity Anywhere

Avatier is very well suited for large organizations that struggle with Service Desk getting swamped with password resets or unlocks. Giving end users the power to self service their issues is well worth the investment. In my environment, I even created Slackbot responses that triggered the Avatier site when a user said "reset password" or "locked out."

Fischer IaaS

Fischer is well suited for the use case scenarios where an institution has not previously used any identity management and needs to quickly provide services to meet regulatory or other deadlines. It also works well when you can implement in smaller batches of user accounts and grow over time. We have found it less appropriate for cases where we have needed to set up on-off temporary or special access. Fischer has worked with us on out-of-band provisioning but we had to pay for extra Fischer professional services to make that work.

Cons

Avatier Identity Anywhere

  • 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.

Fischer IaaS

  • Reducing the frequency (twice a month) of scheduled outages. But I believe they are making progress toward developing a more robust cloud infrastructure that will eliminate the need for such frequent downtimes.
  • There are some less than intuitive administration tools, which could be improved. Fisher is always willing to help us when we don't understand the proper way to configure using the tools.
  • I would like a streamlined way to move changes from our test environment into our production (live) environment instead of having to duplicate the effort.

Alternatives Considered

Avatier Identity Anywhere

We use NetIQ DRA, so we looked into Identity Manager as well, but it just didn't have the same kind of integration capabilities and security measures that Avatier provided. Ultimately, after using a trial of Identity Manager, we decided it wasn't going to work and opted for Avatier, as it had a long-standing record for excellence.

Fischer IaaS

It does deliver as advertised, provided you do your homework and understand the expected outcome before going live. Poor planning can turn the project into a nightmare. It can save the company a good deal of man hours and money by bringing about identity management automation, a self-service portal, and customizable email notifications for all of the identity owners and other stakeholders. For example, you can inform your HR team upon successful account creation and disablement. You can proactively reach out to users informing them about their account extirpation status, etc.

Return on Investment

Avatier Identity Anywhere

  • 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.

Fischer IaaS

  • Fischer has had a positive impact by providing self-serve identity and password management tools that our constituents can use at their convience, not tied to our operational hours.
  • Fisher Identity as a Service has been a significant cost, but it is anticipated that it saves our students significant time and effort that they can better dedicate to their academic pursuits.
  • Negative initial reaction--as this was a new way of doing things, there was a period of confusion among our college constituent that required additional communication and instruction
