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."

Workspace ONE Access (formerly VMware Identity Manager)

VMWare Identity Manager is a fantastic solution if you're looking for a "single point of access" type experience for delivering applications and data to your users. There are some features it lacks compared to some competitors, particularly when it comes to integration with other products and customization of look/feel, but we have been very successful using it to provide an easier user experience than our old systems were able to deliver.

Pros

Avatier Identity Anywhere

  • Allows us to set users accounts to termination at any given time.
  • Allows us to let end users manage their own account with little work for our help desk team.

Workspace ONE Access (formerly VMware Identity Manager)

  • It provides an "SSO" type experience for access to applications and data. Users sign in to one "portal" and then have access to whatever university systems they need to do their job.
  • It greatly simplifies securing these types of access. Firewall rulesets can be made much simpler and easier to manage, as well.

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.

Workspace ONE Access (formerly VMware Identity Manager)

  • There is not a ton of look/feel customization for VMWare Identity manager. We have had some complaints about the icons for the delivered applications, and it's very difficult to set up custom icons.
  • Integrating Identity Manager with our enterprise authentication solution, which is based on AD FS was not immediately intuitive or easy to do. It was possible, but it took some work.
  • Integrating Identity Manager with VMWare's own TrueSSO product (to allow certificate based authentication to work with MFA) was not intuitive and took some support calls.

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.

Workspace ONE Access (formerly VMware Identity Manager)

We also examined several other options, particularly Lenovo Unified Workspace. The Lenovo product had some advantages over the VMWare product, particularly in the areas of customization of the look / feel and user experience. However, we have been a longtime VMWare customer, and we have VMWare VDI and other product implementations in place now that paired very well with the VMWare product.

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.

  • We were able to replace several products from different companies with a single one. IDM replaced a Citrix farm as well as various VPN solutions.
  • Identity Manager has had a positive impact on our workload on our IT and Security engineers, as well as our desktop support group. We are now able to manage one location for application delivery instead of many, and security and other troubleshooting is much simplified, which means a lighter workload for those groups.
