BeyondTrust
BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access is well suited to grand monitored privileged access to resources. It works in a proxy mode so end-users don't have direct access to servers. This can help prevent attacks on servers from users' machines since all the traffic to the servers goes through the Privileged Remote Access server which performs auth according to the policies. In cases where direct access to the servers/service from the end-user's machine is required, it is a little bit complicated to set up that kind of connection using protocol tunneling.

SAP Identity Management manages organization identities centrally with a great amount of flexibility and efficiency. Compared to the conventional SAP solution of central user administration (CUA), SAP IDM (version 7.2/8.0) delivers a great number of benefits like: 1. Availability of connectors for non-SAP application identity management,
2. Modular/granular access management in the form of context-based business role definition.
3. It can be integrated with the SAP HR system for making entire user identity management automatic.

  • In my previous organization, to achieve the granularity of access based on organization restrictions, we implemented enabler role-based security roles. Provisioning the enabler roles through the SAP GRC was a great challenge (realistically improbable). Here came the SAP IDM to our rescue. It has a peculiar feature of context-based business role provisioning feature.
  • Customized context & its association with security roles & user HR attributes, give us unique ability to achieve granularity of access provisioning.
  • SAP IDM integrates with the SAP HR system and identity management becomes automatic.

Cons
BeyondTrust
  • questionnaire from technician for installation was difficult to follow
  • after purchase of a product, an initial audio discussion with an Engineer would be great for better understanding the installation phase
  • provide plans for on-premise and cloud strategies in different documents

  • SAP Identity management should come up with connectors for almost all not SAP applications, which will enable the use of SAP IDM as a one-stop solution for organizations' identity management.

As IDM heavily relies on JAVA/SQL as a development language, finding skills resources sometimes becomes challenging. But SAP has strong support available for this product which makes it reliable for long term use within an organization.

SAP IDM offers a great deal of benefits/features compared to conventional access provisioning with SAP.
1. Conventional SAP user administration solution like CUA has great limitations. e.g. only SAP systems can be managed. Low-performance issues, unreliable access provisioning, and risk analysis were missing.
2. SAP IDM integrates with SAP GRC solution to perform the reliable risk analysis before access provisioning. Its context feature allows granular access provisioning.

  • SAP IDM has the huge potential to minimize risks arising out of disorganized identity management within an organization. As all identities are managed centrally, there is very little room for manipulation of an identity.
  • As this solution has the ability to integrate with SAP GRC, risk analysis becomes mandatory before any access provisioning takes place.
  • As the solution is automatic, hiring to employee exits is managed with a minimal margin of error.
