FortiAuthenticator

FortiAuthenticator user identity management appliances
strengthen enterprise security by simplifying and centralizing the management
and storage of user identity information. It is easier to configure compare to
a radius server, and offers a lot of great features like a password reset
portal. For this reason, I would highly recommend FortiAuthenticator to anyone
who needs that extra security.

SAP NW Identity Management

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.

Pros

FortiAuthenticator

  • Multi Factor Authentication

SAP NW Identity Management

  • 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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

FortiAuthenticator

FortiAuthenticator is an affordable solution for middle
range organization, it also comes with a package of mobility agents which
utilize perpetual licenses. Although it cost more per license if you are opted
for the high-availability option. The ease of use is the key selling point of
FortiAuthenticator, it will quickly in add an extra layer of security within
your network, without going through a complicated process to deploy it.

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.

  • Certificate management for VPN and enterprise wireless deployment

SAP NW Identity Management

  • 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.
