CyberArk Privileged Account Security Review
The proxy solution using PSM and PSMP gives leverage to reach out to servers which are NATed.

Valuable Features

The proxy solution using PSM and PSMP is valuable. It gives leverage to reach out to servers which are NATed in separate networks and can be reached only by using a jump server.

Improvements to My Organization

Security has been improved. It has improved compliance and there is more control over the privileged users.

Room for Improvement

The performance of this product needs to be improved. When the number of privileged accounts increases, i.e., exceeds 2000, then the performance of the system reduces. The login slows down drastically and also the connection to the target system slows down. This is my observation and thus, the server sizing needs to be increased.

Use of Solution

I have used this solution for three years.

Stability Issues

We have not encountered any stability issues so far.

Scalability Issues

We have experienced some scalability issues, in terms of the performance.

Previous Solutions

Initial Setup

The setup has a medium level of complexity.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

One should negotiate well.

Other Solutions Considered

We looked at other solutions such as CA PAM, Lieberman Software, Thycotic and ARCOS.

This is the best product from its breed.
