BeyondTrust PowerBroker Review
Helps us reduce major vulnerabilities by removing local administrator privileges


What is our primary use case?

We use it to limit user privileges.

How has it helped my organization?

It reduces major vulnerabilities by removing local administrator privileges.

What is most valuable?

I like that I can remove local admin privileges from developers.

What needs improvement?

It only has limited support for Mac.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In version 7.3 there were driver compatibility issues with other security applications, but they were resolved very quickly by support.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The BeyondInsight appliance environment is not as flexible as it should be in some designs. But overall, it’s a well-designed product.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would rate support at six out of 10. They need more people in the Pacific time zone.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward. The appliance build was very simple and was completed with minimal effort.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

PowerBroker for a Mac client is three times the price of the Windows version.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

  • Avecto
  • Thycotic
  • Viewfinity

What other advice do I have?

Implementation is simple, but privileged application support may need a lot of testing. Support may not be able to help due to a lack of understanding of your environment.
