Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

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.

RSA Access Manager (Discontinued)

The RSA was originally brought in for 2-factor authentication, which was used in conjunction with our internal Active Directory. This allowed us to secure our remote user connections and our internal user connections for PCI access. Later we tied it into ISE for secure wireless access.

Cons

Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

  • Bringing on new users and removing existing user when new employee/contractors join or leave an organization can be improved by linking directly to HR module.
  • The slightly complicated GUI makes drill down difficult for a new user.

RSA Access Manager (Discontinued)

  • Cost is not cheap

Alternatives Considered

Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

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.

Nothing as this point. At the end of 2019 we plan to start looking into alternatives

Return on Investment

Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

  • For us, it was a fairly easy implementation over 60 day period that provided ROI fairly quickly
Shiv Shivakumar | TrustRadius Reviewer

RSA Access Manager (Discontinued)

  • Security with 2-factor authentication is a positive
  • Negative would be the updating the client when token expires
  • the real-time monitoring is a life saver, with accurate notifications
