IBM Security Identity and Access Manager

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.

From my experience Sophos could give us a proper email security solution at that time. However once the requirements of the security gets bigger such as machine learning, at that time we do not find it in Sophos. Despite all, we are really satisfied with the Sophos email security solution that we use.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Security Identity and Access Manager

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.

At that time, we chose Sophos based on the reputation and our partnership with our partner. And in general Sophos could give us more benefit than other competitors with the similar solution. However we do not feel comfortable to disclose information about comparison with other solutions. Despite that, we think Sophos could deliver our requirements very well with the cost that were reasonable for us.
