Choosing a solution for managing access

By ninho2000 ·
I am working in a company analyzing the process that is implemented for managing acess to information systems on it. There is a miscelanous implemented including on it: operational systems (MS Windows NT/2000/XP and UNIX), databases, e-mail accounts (MS Exchange) and other software developed internally based on VB.

Based on the initial information I perceived that the access administration area cannot improve its results due to the different manners to create, delete and change access to the systems described above.

A good solution that I am thinking for is implementing a security administration and workflow software to make this task easier and I have some names that I started to study about such as: CA eTrust and BMC Control-SA, but I would like to know others solutions in order to identify the best one to my case.

Thanks in advance,

There are many possible solutions, from the ones you mentioned, to others like NetlQ ( ), NTT/VERIO ( ), IBM's Tivoli, ( ), Esecurityinc ( ), and many more.
The real problem (at least for me) is making sure that all those wonderful things they promise really get to work in your environment (we all know there aren't 2 identical environments), and that the initial investment dosen't change too much.
