Likelihood to Recommend

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.

WSO2 Identity Server

If your systems are using standard authentication models then it is well suited. OpenID Connect, SAML 2.0 etc are all supported.

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.

WSO2 Identity Server

  • Overall, the product works well but does take time and effort to implement in highly complex environments. However, I do not believe this is unique to WS02.

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.

WSO2 Identity Server

It's Oracle. Highly expensive and limited options

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

WSO2 Identity Server

  • WSO2 works well when you need specific user sign-up information and allows you to then tailor the access, for example, to the job role or area of discipline. We use this to tailor the learning offered to a user upon initial login.
