Fischer International Identity
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.

Really like [this] solution, it fits our requirements 100%. There are unlimited possibilities to extend the product, either by creating additional adapters or selectors. We really like the policy management level in PingFederate. It's extremely helpful when we can specify customer journey per many different requirements like user location, application type etc. As well, both StepUp and TopDown authentication flows were implemented [easily].

  • Based on open standards, we can use as much or as little of the Ping suite as we like, depending on which other technologies we've already implemented.
  • Continuous innovation and product enhancements have ensured their products continue to meet our rapidly evolving needs.
  • Ping Identity has been an outstanding partner, starting with the RFP process and continuing to this day, years after the sale. They are focused on our success at every level of the company and are highly responsive to our needs, issues, and product suggestions.

Cons
Fischer International Identity
  • 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.

Easy to use; all UI's are user friendly and easy to learn.[The] possibility to use API is [a] big value as well. We really like integration with CyberArk; with it we can manage privileged accounts according to company standards without breaking any rules, and we can be 100% sure that only approved persons will have administrative access.

Ping's support is willing and attentive, but if I am in a position to engage them I am often at a point where most of the usual support engineers would not be in a position to answer the questions I have. However, Ping has been more than willing to engage their product and development teams with our organization as we take advanced deployment and use case challenges to them.

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.

Two-way authentication and ease of use. I've used several applications that just email a link but never ask for a verification code. By entering the verification code you are sure that the site is safe, secured, and reliable. Using Ping, we can ensure no one other than you will access the application using your credential as you can log in only after you confirm using the verification code that you receive on your personal email or device.

Return on Investment
Fischer International Identity
  • 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
