BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management Review

Monitors all infrastructure activities but program updates are very rare and it gets buggy


What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is data access management. When you have a complex infrastructure you obviously need a solution that can monitor the activities that are going on in the infrastructure. The usernames, passwords, and activities have to be monitored, and this program helps you with that.

So it is nothing but a monitoring and security tool that will monitor all the infrastructure activities and help you to manage the passwords of the infrastructure so that the passwords are not being exposed to the third parties or your users. These passwords will be secure in your infrastructure and be rotated as part of the compliance policies.

What needs improvement?

There are a few points that are lagging in the technology and I think updated versions should be available more frequently.

So the program updates are very rare and the frequency is too far apart to take care of bug fixes and adding the latest features. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working on BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management for about three years now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

BeyondTrust is lagging on stability because it is a merger with Bomgar and so there are three, four technologies included in that. So the stability is still not how it should be.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The program is scalable. It is reliable and to be deployed in a complex infrastructure, will be no problem. It can handle the load. Almost all our clients are enterprise level. So we have good partners and clients with enterprise architecture and complex infrastructure.

How was the initial setup?

The implementation is quite easy because the documents are always online. So you can do the installation yourself. But it is always better to have certified engineers to do the implementation so that you can design the infrastructure in a more secure way. When you have certified engineers, they have their own strategies to do the implementation, which is good in the long run. The deployment, however, is easy and very straightforward.

For a program like this, you want your infrastructure to be stable for more than five years or 10 years. So when you do the deployment with the help of certified engineers, they will have their own strategy of doing the installation and implementation so that managing the operations of such solutions will be easy for you. Yes, you can do the installation on your own, but it is always better to have some certified engineers.

What other advice do I have?

This program has a good reputation in the market and it is more required for the security of your infrastructure. It is a product that you can trust. The only thing I'm looking for in the next version is that the bug fixes have to be more frequent and the solution has to be more reliable and more flexible. On a scale from one to 10, I'll give it a six.
