Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM)

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager is used throughout our organisation to manage and inspect access rights to most of the online services we use and to restrict access to only those tools/folders each individual user needs. I use it to visualize all permissions and access to ensure we adhere to the principle of least privileges.
  • Auditing a particular use is very simple and clear
  • You can generate automated reports for review
  • It is easy to set-up
  • The user interface is not very modern or fancy
  • It does not have a lot of integrations with our identify providers beside Active Directory
  • The reports cannot be customised alot
  • Team leads recieve automated reports of permissions within their team, and it allows them to proactively audit their team members
  • Security specialists have really clear dashboards to audit individuals
  • We can be sure we never leave a permission open after a person leaves
SolarWinds Access Rights Manager, in my opinion, is better than most of its competitors, because it doesn't have alot of bloat. Most alternatives employ very strict zero trust solutions, which may be what is needed, but in our case we can easily maintain those things ourselves. The pricing is also fair for the product.

SolarWinds Access Rights Manager is ideal for companies using Active Directory. It allows you to manage all employees' permissions from one location. Besides that, it is also great for cybersecurity experts to visualize all the permissions within the company, to audit them and make sure no one has too many permissions. Considering the scope of the applications, it would be most-suited for medium to large companies.
