Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The initial setup is very straightforward. It's not complex at all.""100% compliant and you don't have to maintain ID management for each and every user."

More ARCON Privileged Access Management Pros »

"The feature that I most like is that it can notify me whenever someone plugs in their device, which is not allowed. I get notifications for new laptop devices. I think the user interface looks good compared to previous versions.""There is good integration with third-party systems like antivirus patch management, MDM.""The RADIUS Server holds the most value.""When you push out the policy, it is able to populate the entire network at one time.""The most valuable features are the ability to retrieve information about Active Directory user names, viewing the log files to see which MAC address tried to connect with the created SSIDs, portal designing for your company, hotspot tools, and creating network rules for WiFi access.""It is stable and easy to use.""Technical support is okay.""They have recently made a lot of improvements. My clients don't have much to complain about."

Cons
"The solution needs more work on the password management side of things. Password management is a big challenge for us, and I would like to improve this aspect. We're finding that BeyondTrust is better in this regard, which is why we're probably going to migrate over. It will offer better security I think.""Hazard flow could be improved, the data compliance portion."

"The solution configuration is complicated for setting the infrastructure. They have improved over the years but there is still a lot of room to improve. When comparing the simplicity to other vendors, such as Fortinet and Aruba they are behind.""The installation is not straightforward, it took us approximately one month.""Segmentation can be improved.""This product doesn't work in isolation.""It should be virtualized because many people have begun migrating to the cloud. They should offer a hybrid version.""Third-party integration is important, as well as the continuous adaptation feature which is the AIOps. It would be helpful to include the AIOps.""The web interface needs improvement. The new web interface that they have is not as easy to manage and we find it to be very slow.""I would like to see the product simplified more, especially with the configuration."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Its price is probably good if you use all of its features and functionalities to protect your environment. If you use only a part of the functionality, its price is too high. It is just a question of value and the functionality you use.""The price for Cisco ISE is high.""The price is okay.""The price of the solution is price fair for the features you receive.""There are other cheaper options available.""It's an expensive solution when compared to other vendors.""The price can be lower, especially for subscriptions. It should be a lot cheaper to have a wide range of customers. The price should be comparable to competitive products like Forescout or Fortinet FortiNAC. Forescout is cheaper for customers looking for a cloud solution.""The SMARTnet technical support is available at an additional cost."
