Pros
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.I'm a BeyondTrust partner and I have multiple deployments, four or five banks right now. The features that give us quite an edge compared to what our competitors are offering - like IBM or Thycotic - are the Session Management, that is quite a big one; also the recording of keystrokes. In addition, there is the password vaulting and state-of-the-art Password Management, which I haven't seen in other products.It scales easily and the product is stable.Reduces major vulnerabilities by removing local administrator privileges.

The Password Upload Utility tool makes it easier when setting up a Safe that contains multiple accounts and has cut down the amount of time that it takes to complete the task.For a while, there were individual IDs having privileged access. We wanted to restrict that. We implemented the solution so that it can be more of internal control. We can have session recordings happening and reduce our attacks.There are no issues with scalability. Our clients are very happy to use the product.We are maintaining compliance in PCI, SOX and HIPPA, which is a big thing. Auditors really like it, and it has made us stay compliant.We are able to know who is accessing what and when; having accountability.This solution is quite stable.The most valuable feature is that it always provides flexibility, password quality and one-time user check-in and check-out.I really like the PTA (Privileged Threat Analytics). I find this the best feature.

Cons
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.It should support XWindows Remote Desktop Access protocol for Linux/Unix.It only has limited support for Mac.

Currently, in Secure Connect, an end user is required to enter account information manually, and cannot save any of this information for future use.Integration with the ticketing system should allow any number of fields to be used for validation before allowing a user to be evaluated and able to access a server.The initial setup of CyberArk is a challenge if you do not have prior experience with it.Make it easier to deploy.I think having a distributed architecture would certainly help this solution.There was a functionality of the solution that was missing. I had noticed it in Beyond Trust, but not in this solution. But, recently they have incorporated something similar.If we could have some kind of out-of-the box feature that you can simply say "no" so they don't have to go into a development mode, that would a really helpful feature.Tech support staff can be more proactive.

Pricing and Cost Advice
What BeyondTrust was providing was user-based licensing which was a great benefit from the client point of view. Recently, I don't know why, the licensing model has been changed, and that is the reason that they have lost a bit of their edge when it comes to the PAM, against our competition. The asset-based licensing, from the user's point of view, is not beneficial. The licensing should be based on the users. The greater the number of users, the greater will be the load and the greater the scalability problems. I presume that is why the licensing model has changed.PowerBroker for a Mac client is three times the price of the Windows version.

In comparison to other products on the market, CyberArk is a more costly product.This solution is considered to be more expensive than others out there on the market today.I do not have any opinions to add about the pricing of the product.No, I do not have any advice on the price of the product.Network and security licenses are currently being managed by other outsource vendors, so they are facing some type of problems in the digital aspect.With reducing the privileged account access, there has been a huge improvement. They are now bringing more accounts on a little at a time.If you are looking at implementing this solution, buy the training and go to it.Our risk is definitely significantly lower. Also, our resources are low.
