Overall Satisfaction with Forefront Identity Manager

Forefront Identity Manager is being used to secure the user login procedure and requests to our new Windows Domain hosted in the Azure Cloud. Users use their digital id to keep a terminal session for shared resources and to manage sessions for our operations and customer care users. Our accounting department and IT system admins use it as well.

Forefront Identity Manager stacks up well against the competition as it is fast and efficient. It saves our IT department time by allowing users to manage their credentials. It has allowed our staff to sync our local on premises with the cloud. It offers these features that are not out of the box available in the competitors like Entrust which we have deployed in the past.

Forefront is excellent for multi-factor authentication in the cloud or on premises. It is fast and lightweight. [It provides] Ease of self-management of credentials. The user web interface is easy to use and understand. Less time is spent by IT staff resetting passwords or unlocking accounts.
