Forefront Identity Manager (Discontinued)

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.

SecurID

Easy to implement and support. Flexible platforms and user-friendly interface. Not a lot of customization is available to customers and response time of support could be better. There are now competing products that utilize new features like facial recognition. Using camera and fingerprint sensors are becoming standard in smartphones so RSA SecureID should offer those as options.

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.

SecurID

  • The Android application cannot be easily returned to the original code (if you chose to move to the next code).
  • If misconfigured, it can lock an administrator out of a server.
  • The look and feel of the RSA control center status bar application have a dated feel.

Long story short, does the job. Can use company credentials to setup and access the account for SecurID. Easy to setup and implement. Doesn't have a high learning curve.

Using it very frequently, it's important that its straight forward and I do not have to go through unnecessary hoops to achieve something seemingly simple. Can setup using the company credentials and do not have to setup up a separate account. Setup was fast and easy. GUI is very straight forward and quick.

Their support for onboarding and set-up is quite good. The only issues we tend to have are obtaining new user devices. These need to be planned ahead of time.

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

SecurID

And also Google Authenticator that TrustRadius does not have on their database. Both are good but not excellent. SecureID felt like the best option because it is solid and has proven to be the best option for more than 20 years. The other options were confusing and offer things that we don't need.

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.
Brad Ranks | TrustRadius Reviewer

SecurID

  • Implementing RSA SecurID has allowed us to help our clients understand we are committed to compliance.
  • Implementing RSA SedcurID has, however, negatively impacted employee productivity. Employees need to be aware of the additional steps they need to take to authenticate to a protected system.
  • RSA SecurID has helped us with our compliance audits.
