I think that MIM is great for compliance since it reduces the number of logins that are required by users. Most offices have post-it notes with logins floating around because there are so many to remember or there are "shared" logins. This reduces the number of logins to 1 and you can easily revoke access in one fell swoop. This prevents gaps and holes with terminations and updates to select groups are super simple.

Ping Intelligent Identity Platform

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].

Ping Intelligent Identity Platform

  • 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

Forefront Identity Manager (Discontinued)

  • For Windows Server 2008 R2 Servers is a great tool to set a codeless provisioning over new objects.
  • Can easily integrate with Active Directory and Exchange Servers, improving the identity sync between the final user and the lifecycle management.
  • Improvements in the areas of performance, simplified deployment easing the troubleshooting tasks, better documentation knowledge base, and more language support.
  • The codeless provisioning provided in FIM can sustain a variety from high demand to mid-size scenarios for account lifecycle management.

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 is Microsoft. We are a Microsoft shop, primarily. It integrates deeply with Active Directory making it good for Microsoft Active Directory shops.

Ping Intelligent Identity Platform

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

Forefront Identity Manager (Discontinued)

  • We see a positive impact simply in the time savings alone. Chasing accounts around is time-consuming and prone to error.
  • The cost to us is negligible to the value it provides.
