One of the best kept secrets.

What is our primary use case?

Our clients' primary use case for BeyondTrust Password Safe is managing Windows Privileged Accounts, Linux, and Fit client databases, and for accessing a different database, like Visual Studio, SQL Manager, and things like that. We usually deploy it in a double server, high availability with disaster recovery. It is the primary software architecture.

Pros and Cons

  • "BeyondTrust Password Safe's features that I have found most valuable are really those that are knitted in. That is their Smart Rules and Smart Groups, where you design your administration model so you create your AD groups and your asset groups, and configure Password Safe."
  • "The only negative thing I can say is that BeyondTrust was recently bought by Bomgar and the marriage of the multiple companies coming together in the merger has caused a little bit of a hiccup right now in their software versions."

What other advice do I have?

BeyondTrust Password Safe is very robust and very powerful, very scalable, and very nimble. My advice is to first make sure all their use cases match your need. Then I recommend to engage with their salespeople, get a good sales presentation and understanding of the cost, and then to get a technical presentation followed by a demo. We have a client whose main use case is Rapid7 SIM with API integration. So far I have found that CyberArk is the only one that can do that. But CyberArk is too expensive for this client.

A stable and scalable solution with good monitoring, vaulting, and session recording functionalities

What is our primary use case?

We are using it for vaulting and proxying the admin session. It is not yet implemented. We will implement it at the beginning of 2021.

Pros and Cons

  • "Session recording, password rotation, and password vaulting are the most valuable features."
  • "Its documentation can be improved. Its documentation is currently complicated, and it is not good. It needs to be better. Their technical support can also be improved. It is not bad, but it can be better."

What other advice do I have?

You need to be very clear about how to implement vaulting or the session recording mechanism. If you don't go with an external partner to help you with that, it can very difficult to have a solid implementation of such solutions, whether it is CyberArk, Thycotic, BeyondTrust, or any other solution. Just because you installed these solutions doesn't mean that they would resolve 100% of your work. You need to have some processes for such applications, and you need to do some homework first. With the help of an external consulting company that knows how to implement such solutions, you can…

What is our primary use case?

BeyondTrust replaced the leading password management solution, offered vulnerability management and gave me a third-party patch management that integrates with Microsoft. To me, that was a win-win.

What other advice do I have?

It is a steep learning curve, but once automated, it makes your life a lot easier.
