Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"BeyondTrust Password Safe's features that I have found most valuable are really those that are knitted in. That is their Smart Rules and Smart Groups, where you design your administration model so you create your AD groups and your asset groups, and configure Password Safe.""Session recording, password rotation, and password vaulting are the most valuable features."

"We only use the basic features and those are the ones that have the ability to tie into the app, the secrets, and the passwords and encrypt them.""All its features are really valuable. It's really well thought-out. It's a complete turnkey solution that has all the concerns taken care of, such as access control and management. You can use it in infrastructure as code to create key vaults, APIs, PowerShells, CLIs, even Terraform.""The most valuable features are ease of use and enabling our clients to manage keys.""The best feature is the integrity of the .NET applications in our company.""Technical support is helpful.""The GUI was quite easy for me to use.""The solution can scale up as needed.""It is a managed service in Azure, you do not have to worry about security other than managing your own identities."

Cons
"The only negative thing I can say is that BeyondTrust was recently bought by Bomgar and the marriage of the multiple companies coming together in the merger has caused a little bit of a hiccup right now in their software versions.""Its documentation can be improved. Its documentation is currently complicated, and it is not good. It needs to be better. Their technical support can also be improved. It is not bad, but it can be better."

More BeyondTrust Password Safe Cons »

"The solution does not allow you to integrate with XML parties if it is not inside Azure itself.""The initial setup could be less complex for first-time users.""I can see that other people are doing the infrastructure as code, they are able to easily manage and cycle their passwords as needed using their own interface they created. It would be nice if Microsoft provided more guidance in that area.""It needs to offer dynamic secrets management.""The integration with Thales HSM is complex and is not out-of-the-box. Uploading the keys was quite a tedious process.""If you check the capabilities of other key management services across Amazon, HashiCorp, and Google, there are features that Key Vault doesn't have. It could be the case that when you use Key Vault, you might be forced to use a third-party solution to get certain services. If those services could be included in Key Vault, there would be diminished reasons to go for a third-party key management system.""Azure has great documentation, but I would like to see more use cases pertaining to specific industries. For example, case studies on how to use HIPAA compliant solutions in the healthcare industry or how to use PCI compliant data analytics solutions in the financial technology industry would be helpful.""To make it a ten the setup should be more streamlined."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It has subscription-based licensing. BeyondTrust is three times less expensive than CyberArk."

More BeyondTrust Password Safe Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The cost of the Azure Key Vault is very high and the pricing model is based on the number of keys that you store and retrieve.""The pricing is decent. It has a pretty low price. It is a straightforward cost based on usage.""Key Vault, like every Azure service, has a cost associated with it, but you don't have to spend thousands of dollars to spin up an environment to build a key management system. It's already there.""Pricing is quite reasonable and support is included, although premium support is available for an additional fee.""The price of the solution is reasonable for what we are using it for.""Azure is cheaper than CyberArk... CyberArk is good, but it's quite expensive."
