Quotes From Members

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

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.""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.""What I liked about this solution is that it can also integrate for tracking malicious use or sending analytics to a host that can process them. I don't know if CyberArk, Centrify, or Thycotic can do that. The analytics was something the client really wanted, and they already had BeyondTrust. It is very scalable. The agent on the workstation is very thin, and the processing power required on a server is nothing out of the ordinary. It is also very stable and easy to deploy.""Technical support is good."

"The solution's most valuable aspect is that it easy to install. The user experience is very good.""The solution is easy to learn and makes it easy for our users to add FortiToken. It's very easy to integrate if you have other Fortinet devices.""For someone concerned with multifactor authentication, I'm satisfied with the product.""We use this product for SSL two-factor authentication and FortiToken management.""The logs have great detail that make it easier to evaluate and control the security environment.""The ease of use is really nice. Using Authenticator, I've been able to actually work better on my authentication due to the fact that I have a single fabric to authenticate control from my firewall and on my access points. Authentication takes place from this area.""FortiAuthenticator is really good software that integrates very well with Fortinet products.""Intuitive interface and easy to deploy."

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.""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.""What's bothering me, which is true of all of them, is that sometimes, the error codes that come up don't necessarily get reflected in the searches within their support sites or they're out of date. I would rather search by an error code than type in the text and search for it by text because the error code means that it is programmatic, and it is known. It might not be desired, but it at least is not unexpected. If you don't have an error code, you just get an anomalous error, and if it is lengthy, it can be difficult to search and find the specific instance you're looking for. This is something I would like all of them to improve. BeyondTrust, CyberArk, Centrify, and Thycotic could do some improvements in staying up to date and actually allowing you to search based on the product version. They are assuming that everybody is on their way to release. They put out a new release, but it is not reflected on the support site, which makes no sense to me, especially when they revamp all the error codes. They all have been guilty of this in some way.""If you don't get the implementation right at the outset, you will struggle with the product."

"The hardware aspect of the solution could be improved. We are not really able to understand the hardware capabilities of the device.""We have issues with HA (high availability). These should be addressed in future releases.""No SMS gateway from the ISP""It does the job I paid for, but the graphical interface could be improved.""It can not use SQL to query FortiAnalyzer directly.""The solution could be more automated. It should be able to let me automate a lot of things so that what normally is done as a matter of manual processes can be handled quicker. Slow integrations can be taken up/out if there was more automation.""I would like to see more ways to authenticate, such as adding facial recognition to the two-factor, where you log into your phone or another device.""Integration with some other enterprise applications could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This solution is expensive compared to its competitors."

More BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management Pricing and Cost Advice »

"You can pay as you go with them. You purchase a base license and add to it as needed.""The product could be more competitively priced.""It costs more to license the high-availability option.""The licensing structure is cost-effective for us compared to some of the other solutions that have recurring monthly costs.""FAC is an affordable solution for Middle Range (200E/400E) and also needs a package of mobility agents (2,000) perpetual."
