Pros
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 features related to application elevate is amazing. It helped the company to remove almost all admin local users.

Cloud-based service and management.The two-factor authentication is most definitely valuable and moves us closer to being able to check off those important boxes for compliance.In this version 9.1, lots of changes are done for the dashboard, User Store etc.

Geofencing needs improvement.The gateway server is a RADIUS server, but it lacks the functionality of returning RADIUS attributes other than those that are required for the gateway to authenticate the users.The User Store synchronization part needs to improve. Also, the logs, reports, and dashboard can be improved.

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.I'm sure everyone should have the cluster environment, which means more expensive, anyway, cheaper than the other solutions.

There is a one-time setup fee plus the licenses are provided as per the number of users. For SMS and voice calls, the costs are separate.Licensing and pricing seems very fair.
