"The CA Identity Management Solution is the Industry Leader"

What do you like best?

CA Identity Manager delivers a unified solution for user provisioning and user management that manages users’ identities throughout their entire life cycle, providing them with timely, appropriate access to applications and data. The user provisioning and identity management solutions that we offer can give users access to what they want when they need it.

What do you dislike?

The solution increases operational efficiencies and user productivity while decreasing your help desk’s workload and costs. However, it can do better than that.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing the identities and access of users to on-premise apps and in the cloud is a critical function for today’s IT organizations that are under increased pressure to improve operational efficiencies while still remaining compliant.

"One of the leaders undoubtfully"

What do you like best?

CA IdentityMinder is a very good product, it allows very easily as a user to approve requests and if configured properly it can automate through workflows a lot of the stuff one used to do manually. Being able to write custom adapters for all kinds of endpoints is also a big plus, especially since now it supports Java which is lie an industry standard if you would.

As a deliverer it is quite difficult to setup, it needs quite a few components but being able to determine graphically the approval workflows is definitely a big big plus. Finding orphaned accounts is also quite simple.

Last but not least, self-service functions for end-users and strong password policy enforcement are two other pros of this solution.

What do you dislike?

As I said above, IdentityMinder is quite heavy on the infrastructure side and requires a lot of work to set it up quite right. Workflows are necessary tasks to get going to avoid doing everything manually which is quite complicated on IdentityMinder.

Also it is not such a good idea having two different repositories to get two-ways synchronization. Design could be simpler.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need Identity Management without integrating in a bigger suite it could really be what you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

User id management and centralization, clean and controlled identities accross all softwares and systems. All users can now use a single user and password without having a specific SSO solution and without having to remeber dozens of different passwords with different expiration dates.

What Privileged Access Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"CA Identity Management "

What do you like best?

CA has a great front end with the best user experience out of all the Identity management products. Dividing users into groups and only allowing them to see request just for their approval gives it good user experience.

What do you dislike?

The Back end end experience for the Administrators, a lot of clicking of buttons to get where you need to be not a great experience for the end User.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

more intuitive for the admins

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Identity management form the ground up. the benefits are in the automation part

"CA Identity Minder - My Review"

What do you like best?

Very secure way to reset user passwords. However we really do not use this product to it's fullest potential. I feel like it could do so much more for us.

What do you dislike?

Somewhat slow and not always reliable. We have had multiple instances where the hosted version of CA Identity Minder had become non responsive and we have had to resort back to using AD to perform unlocks and password resets.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Secure manner in which to reset user passwords and unlock accounts.

"Implemented CA IdentityMinder as my company's primary identity provider/provisioning solution."

What do you like best?

I like the granular control over users' rights based on department.

What do you dislike?

The entire product is not very user-friendly, difficult to implement, difficult to troubleshoot, and difficult to customize.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Other products in a similar price point are easier to implement and manage; however, CA does have a few good features compared to others. My best recommendation is to do a side-by-side comparison with a couple of other products to see how each stacks up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We implemented IdentityMinder as a better, easier-to-manage alternative to Active Directory for our 35000+ retail store users who did not require the other benefits provided by having an Active Directory account (email, workstation access, etc.)
