Overall Satisfaction with IBM Security Identity and Access Manager

We are using IBM Security Identity and Access Manager as part of the Identity Management solution stack for our external customers and internal websites. We utilize Security Access Manager as a reverse proxy to the backend application, and to secure certain parts of our site using junctions.
  • Powerful, lots of features
  • Integrates well with other IBM products
  • Not particularly user friendly
  • Performance is not good for administration
  • High implementation and license cost and lack of trained personnel has resulted in a high running cost for the company
  • The system is very stable, so minimal support required for troubleshooting
  • Lack of documentation - requires employees to undergo training
IBM Security Identity and Access Manager is useful for managing large scale identity management. It integrates well with other IBM products if your company is using them. The cost is high when installing and maintaining the whole Identity Management stack which includes IBM Security Identity Manager, Security Access Manager, LDAP, DB2.
