Bitium

Best suited for companies that use the same services across multiple teams, services that might require support at one point. For us, it is very easy to share access to either the IT support team or to me, as the Salesforce administrator, and we can easily take care of the issue and then log out without any hassle.

I would not strongly recommend it for single users, who don't need to share access to others.

IBM Security Verify Access, formerly IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM)

IBM Security Identity and Access Manager is well-suited for larger organizations who can take advantage of the powerful features without being overwhelmed by the initial investments of both time and resources. It is advantageous for any company that wants to provide secure protection of both internal and external (client) information. The added bonus of threat management mitigation was an unforeseen bonus.

Pros

Bitium

  • Sharing access. It's as easy as 1-2-3 with Bitium, no more hassle with sharing the actual password and then changing it, violating company policies, etc.
  • Lots of apps supported. In all three years since we are using Bitium, we haven't encountered any app that would not be supported by it.
  • Easy to set up strong passwords. Another very easy and intuitive feature: when you are setting up an app, you can ask Bitium to generate an A-level password automatically, that you can therefore use with ease.

Cons

Bitium

  • Apps crashing. From time to time, some apps stop working in Bitium and they come back only after a while (1, 2, 8 hrs). We don't have a clear explanation for this yet.
  • Very tied to Chrome. Bitium is almost 'married' to Chrome, making it unusable in other browsers, which is sometimes problematic.
  • Sometimes slow Chrome Add-on. From time to time, the add-on seems so unresponsive that it is easier to go to the web dashboard and log in from there in the app you were looking for.

We evaluated Oracle Identity Manager and were ready to move ahead with the purchase plan, but then found that IBM addressed the needs of our company in a more robust fashion. The price was significantly higher, yet in the grand scheme of things, the safety of both our data and the data of our clients was the most important criteria.

Return on Investment

Bitium

  • Everyone is now required to have A-level passwords, so the overall level of security has increased a lot.
  • Having a secured way of sharing access to different apps, users are now very open to being helped more hands-on by the support teams, not fearing that their credentials might be exposed or later used.

  • By reducing effort needed to code encryption and session management within the application, it has returned significant ROI
