We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The two most valuable features of this solution are its stability and scalability."
"This solution makes it easy to create use cases, and it is easy to move queries from use cases to the report to the dashboard."
"This solution allows us to identify connections for all users."
"Allows multiple integrations with multiple systems in a stable and flexible fashion."
"The ability to correlate different logs is the solution's most valuable feature."
"The most valuable feature is the log monitoring."
"The features I have found most valuable are it capabilities for behavioral analytics and anomaly detection."
"The most unique and valuable features are the upstream and downstream throughput capacities; the Safeguard platform provides agile integration. In actuality, all the features are valuable. They're good, user-friendly."
"The way the solution is installed and deployed is very valuable. They make it very easy."
"The solution's most valuable features are the efficiency and the quality of the recording."
"We use the solution’s “transparent mode” feature for privileged sessions. It is very easy because it is only a simple configuration for our users. We don't have to modify our network. We install it, configure it, and it works. So, it is super easy. The rollout for our users is seamless."
"We are able to log and get reporting on all privileged activity that is being performed. We like the fact that we can leverage the session recording feature, which is especially valuable when we're dealing with third-party vendors that have to remote into our our boxes and servers to do any work on behalf of the bank. Now, we can record everything they are doing to ensure that they're only doing the changes that were needed. In addition, we use it to leverage knowledge transfer with our internal staff."
"It's one of the best products we've seen. When you start looking at the functionality and use cases and usability of the product, it's straightforward. They designed this product with the end-user in mind, and they also had the sysadmin who is supporting the product in mind. They really did a nice job. Overall, it's a nice product to work with."
"There are a lot of features, so it's going to sound funny, but one of the most simplistic features, the Favorites feature, is the one we like the best. You do a full run-through of configuration to check out a server and then you can save that whole configuration as a favorite. So the next time you go in, you click on the favorite that you configured and it automatically takes you to the end so you can check the server out that much faster. It saves a lot of time..."
"All sessions are audited and they are indexed/searchable through the GUI."
"There is a GUI, but it is not complete and lacks functionality that needs to be performed using the console."
"I would like to see integration with automation products, such as Phantom Automation."
"The interactive dashboard is complicated and you need to have training in order to use it, so I think that it could be made easier to use."
"The GUI interface is not always intuitive and easy for non-technical users to work with."
"The reporting and the way it is worded needs to be improved in future releases. The dashboards are quite poorly designed."
"ArcSight is not a user-friendly solution and the interface needs to be improved."
"ArcSight's features that can be improved include anything related to its visualization capabilities and user friendliness."
"Our experience with technical support has been disappointing. We require more prompt and faster response times. We require answers to our questions right away but we haven't received that level of support."
"I would like to see an adjustment with more enterprise architecture. You can buy multiple appliances but you can not fully separate different functions, so scaling might be a bit more complicated."
"The interface is better now, but it still could be improved a lot. It needs more organization, menus, automatic refresh of information, and Web 2.0."
"Some of the out-of-the-box reporting isn't that rich. We spoke to our Safeguard reps who have acknowledged that some of the reporting features can certainly be improved and that we're not the only customer who has cited this. There are very little out-of-the-box reporting capabilities. You have to build the queries and the report. I believe in the next release they're going to be addressing this."
"From a usability perspective, what we are finding out is that our privileged domain admin users, in particular, want functionality for extending a checkout session. So we are working with One Identity support to see if there's an enhancement that can be made to the product."
"There is room for improvement in the launch module. They built in a launch button but they don't have effective instructions for configuring it to allow it to launch an RDP session. They're working on that, but the button is in the live product. If they were going to install something that wasn't useful, they should have just disabled it and not rolled it out with the product."
"Monitoring of the platform should be easier and more functional so that you can have a clear picture of the running service."
"Transparent mode was too cumbersome, so I don't foresee us being able to use it. On paper when we were initially talking about it, it was definitely going to be the preferred method until we realized the burden it would be on our network guys. Then, we had to step back and reevaluate what we wanted to do. That's when we changed our approach to use the RD Gateway feature."
"It can range between $30,000 and $40,000 USD, and can go up to $500,000 and $600,000 USD."
"Setup cost, pricing and licensing are all very expensive."
"Our licensing costs are on a yearly basis."
"It was definitely cheaper than the other two products that we evaluated."
"They offer a fair price for a robust solution."
"The full license is expensive but if you plan to use it in a big organization then it is the best option because it is more flexible."
"It is a bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. You don't want to get anything too cheap because then you get cheap stuff and cheap support. That really never helps anybody."
"The pricing is about $80,000 per 100 servers. There are few elective costs."
"We have a yearly license. The cost depends on how much a company wants to invest in technology. In our organization, we believe in modern digitization and automation processes so we found it affordable. One Identity was not that much less than other solutions and it is not a cheap solution. There were number of cheaper solutions. However, it's the most effective, according to our evaluation."
