Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010 review

Article comments

FIM 2010 offers enterprises the ability to do something elusive: To control, in an automated way, all of the users and identities that come into an organisation and to manage their lifecycles, from creation to daily duty to separation.

Given the increased emphasis on compliance, closing security loopholes and identifying areas in which manual processes aren't keeping up, FIM 2010 certainly provides a compelling, if very expensive, solution for managing those "who's" and making sure they're on, or off, systems as they should be.
