Overall Satisfaction with NetIQ Access Manager

It is being used by all our analysts and project managers within the office. They use it when working for clients.
  • Single Sign-On. Makes it easy to access many applications with just one password.
  • Risk-based Authentication. Simplify your experience as well as the security of your web-based and federated services.
  • Standards-based Federation. Secured access to externally hosted applications.
  • While we have been able to configure a large number of applications to sit behind the NAM, there are some applications that cannot be configured to do so.
  • It can be a bit of a step learning curve to understand the architecture, but it pays off to do so.
  • More out of the box integrations with two factor authentication providers would be good.
  • ROI
  • User Buy In
  • Streamlined access to resources
This tool has been used to allow customers to provide credentials only once in order to access a suite of applications (single sign-on) and has also been used to allow federated access. The benefits realized by introducing this functionality are improved convenience for users by only having to enter credentials once and improved user management.
