Oracle ESSO

Good if you want a temporary solution to too many passwords.

RSA SecurID Suite

Easy to implement and support. Flexible platforms and user-friendly interface. Not a lot of customization is available to customers and response time of support could be better. There are now competing products that utilize new features like facial recognition. Using camera and fingerprint sensors are becoming standard in smartphones so RSA SecureID should offer those as options.

RSA SecurID Suite

  • RSA Authentication Manager is easy to deploy and configure.
  • It is a scalable solution meant for a large enterprise.
  • Some of the key features of RSA Authentication Manager where it particularly does well are provisioning, mapping, and logging.
  • It has a very nice console with good administrative and troubleshooting options.
  • Reliable security for VPN, applications, and wifi.

Cons

Oracle ESSO

  • This tool is essentially a hack, making the user experience pretty weak. For example, we use it in an application which has a box to type your password. Every time you enter some data, ESSO steals the focus and types your password into the box, even if you aren't about to submit the form requiring the password.
  • This tool creates a 2nd CN in the directory and this broke some of our applications which were only expecting a single CN per user in the directory. Why can't it use a traditional database instead?
  • This tool caused performance issues with Putty. It would peg our CPUs at 100% if the user had Putty running. It took a very long time to resolve the issue.

RSA SecurID Suite

  • The Android application cannot be easily returned to the original code (if you chose to move to the next code).
  • If misconfigured, it can lock an administrator out of a server.
  • The look and feel of the RSA control center status bar application have a dated feel.

Long story short, does the job. Can use company credentials to setup and access the account for SecurID. Easy to setup and implement. Doesn't have a high learning curve.

Using it very frequently, it's important that its straight forward and I do not have to go through unnecessary hoops to achieve something seemingly simple. Can setup using the company credentials and do not have to setup up a separate account. Setup was fast and easy. GUI is very straight forward and quick.

Their support for onboarding and set-up is quite good. The only issues we tend to have are obtaining new user devices. These need to be planned ahead of time.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle ESSO

There's no substitute for properly developed applications that delegate authentication to an external system like Active Directory or a cloud identity provider. That way, the issues with screen scraping and constantly-breaking integration are solved permanently.

RSA SecurID Suite

And also Google Authenticator that TrustRadius does not have on their database. Both are good but not excellent. SecureID felt like the best option because it is solid and has proven to be the best option for more than 20 years. The other options were confusing and offer things that we don't need.

Return on Investment

Oracle ESSO

  • We spent a lot of time implementing it on different applications. However, because it uses screen scraping, every time our apps upgraded, it broke the integration with ESSO, so we had to keep fixing the integration. After a few years, we have stopped integrating new apps with it due to this headache.

RSA SecurID Suite

  • Implementing RSA SecurID has allowed us to help our clients understand we are committed to compliance.
  • Implementing RSA SedcurID has, however, negatively impacted employee productivity. Employees need to be aware of the additional steps they need to take to authenticate to a protected system.
  • RSA SecurID has helped us with our compliance audits.
