CyberArk Privileged Access Security Review
Password rotation, session recording & isolation and on-demand privileges.

Valuable Features

Password rotation, session recording & isolation and on-demand privileges.

Room for Improvement

For users to access a system via CyberArk Privileged Session Manager, a universal connector needs to be coded in a language called AutoIT and its support for web browsers is so-so. Other products like Centrify have browser plugins that can help automate the process when using their products.

Stability Issues


Scalability Issues


Customer Service and Technical Support

Very good.

Initial Setup

Basic setup is pretty straightforward, but to fully utilise the product it can get complicated as it ties in with a lot of other products. Suggest a phased installation so staff can adjust to new processes.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It can be an expensive product. I Suggest only licensing basics to begin with and as need arises, start to license extensions (AIM, etc.) during next phase of implementation.

Other Solutions Considered

Centrify and Lieberman ERPM.

Other Advice

CyberArk offers extensive training, utilise it. Also their support staff are very good and can assist with everything.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
