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

Pros
The implementation is quite easy because the documents are always online.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.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.

Cons
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 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.

Documentation could be improved if they were to include more about connectors. There is not enough documentation.I would like to see the shadowing of ongoing terminal sessions (Remote Desktop Mirroring).We could definitely use some help with API tokenization. If we had a way to store tokens that would be fabulous.One of the things that we want is to be able to do some of the management of it using APIs.I don't know what kind of a cryptographic it uses to encrypt the password but it should be one of the stronger ones. Some of the cryptos have been accessed by hackers.

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.
