Use BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management? Share your opinion.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I would say session management on the go is the most valuable feature. When the session is going on, you can stop the session without terminating it for justification. You can cancel it. The recording takes very little space. Those are some things which the customers are worried about when they talk about session recording."
"The privileged access management into sensitive systems is very valuable. That includes control from the endpoint all the way through to the managing of passwords and credentials that are used by the person to access the sensitive information. It's very useful, because nobody ever really maintains passwords for those endpoint systems. It's maintained in the Dropbox password file."
"The implementation is quite easy because the documents are always online."
"The asset discovery feature is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's very easy to pull assets into the database of the solution manager."
"The most valuable feature is the asset discovery, which makes it very easy to locate and identify assets and pull them into the manager."
"BeyondTrust has very good integrations with quite a lot of security vendors such as SailPoint, IBM, FortiGuard, Splunk, etc."
"This is the number one product for privilege account security."
"Monitoring and recording are valuable features, particularly the recording."
"It has drastically reduced the attack surface for local administrative rights and the chance of escalation of privilege. We've removed, at this point, close to 98 percent of the local administrative accounts on workstations. If there were an incident, it would stop at that point and we'd be able to know."
"The most valuable feature is that it does lifecycle management and that it will change to whatever the end target is."
"The other area to improve is that they rely on MS SQL servers only. You cannot have any other database behind them. They have to be on MS SQL. If they can do something about these issues, this would be a better alternative for some customers."
"The program updates are very rare and the frequency is too far apart to take care of bug fixes and adding the latest features."
"The deployment process should be clarified or made simpler. It would be helpful if the solution had in-app tutorials for users to look at as they progress through the system. Sometimes we get lost and need to go back to check what exactly the function was. There should be small hints around major key functions. It would go a long way in speeding up the deployment process."
"The help system should be improved to provide a quick help guide with each tab within the solution, which explains what each particular function does."
"Their technical support could be more responsive and helpful."
"For an experienced system implementer it will take approximately one day. However, for somebody who is inexperienced it may take up to five days."
"I'd like to see the product include out of the box connectors."
"We have had some major issues with the tool, but we have worked with the R&D teams and we have worked with support. There is room for improvement, especially on response times. But they're working on it and they're doing the best they can."
"It's an old product and has many areas that can be improved."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"This solution is expensive compared to its competitors."
"licensing for this solution is based on the number of APV (privileged users), and the number of sessions that you want to record."
"I think that it was in the range of $200,000 that had to get approved."
