Overall Satisfaction with IBM Security Verify

We used IBM Security Verify mainly for the authentication purposes of users into the application. All the authentications were on web apps where SSO was needed. It was deployed in-house and used as a reverse proxy and secure our site.
  • SSO
  • Ease of integration
  • Reverse proxy
  • Understanding documentation
  • Not very quick
  • Performed well without needing any upgrades
  • Good value for cost
Support is probably the main and only issue that we have faced while using IBM Security Verify
IBM Security Verify doesn't have the best documentation which makes it difficult to understand and implement configurations that we desire

Did implementation of IBM Security Verify go as expected?


Would you buy IBM Security Verify again?


User authentication, SSO, and multi-factor authentication is the perfect application of this tool. The only drawback is probably for the developers to read and easily understand the documentation. It is extremely good when it comes to providing security
