IBM Security Verify Access, formerly IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM)

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.

If an organization is looking for a good comprehensive identity management/governance suite that is easy to implement, CA identity manager may be a good/robust product. It is best to understand specific use case for your organization and try out the product before a final purchase decision as is the case with all sw products.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Security Verify Access, formerly IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM)

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.

The final contenders were CA and Oracle - Oracle was tedious to implement and maintain while on the other hand CA was easy to implement and maintain and came at a much lower price.
