BrettZychIdentity and Access Management Advisor at a energy/utilities company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is usability, as it is quite user-friendly."
"Our most valuable features would probably be key rotation, the SKM or SSH key manager, and account discovery."
"Security is the solution's most valuable feature. As far as I know, this solution is the most secure system of this class on the market today, even considering another management system like Fudo Security, which we also use. The integration capabilities are very good; it helps strengthen our overall security."
"Session monitoring is excellent. It may be the solution's most valuable aspect."
"The most valuable feature is that it is flexible. It has many connectors. that have done well, the EPV and SSH sessions are all being recorded and everything works fine."
"The most valuable feature is the special management. It records the activity and the actions that we use for auditing."
"Service count rotation is probably one of my favorite features... The ability to automatically rotate any password I need to really helps with the entire enterprise strategy that we're pushing right now."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to delegate access to admins when they need it."
"The interface is very simple to use."
"It would be good if the AWS Secrets Manager were more customizable."
"I think they can improve account onboarding. For instance, you have to use the Password Vault utility, whereas in Thycotic I think there is a feature in the user interface that allows you to upload your account with an Excel file. So I'd like to have a similar thing in CyberArk."
"The solution is too big and complex for any businesses that are small or medium-sized. They should offer a more compact version or make a solution better suited to smaller businesses."
"The initial setup could be simplified. Right now, in comparison to its nearest competitors, it's quite complex."
"In the next release, they could simplify the setup and I would like some tasks added like file sharing. When a client connects to CyberArk and wants to put a file on the server, they cannot."
"The stability depends on the infrastructure it is installed on, which is important because CyberArk does not have the hardware appliance."
"I'd like it to be a little more granular. I want a little bit more control over exactly what we do. I know if you do that, you add more knobs and dials to deal with, but that's just my personal approach: granular access."
"I would prefer that this is a fully-managed service, rather than have to manage the software ourselves and keep it up to date."
"The installation process should be easier and more user-friendly so that you don't need to hire a third party to deploy it."
"This solution is expensive."
"The price of this solution is expensive."
"This product is very expensive."
"CyberArk is very expensive and there are additional fees for add-ons."
"It's per-company, license-based."
