We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"It offers the possibility of secure administration of hardware devices, as well as Linux systems administration from a Windows environment."
"Ease of use because of its monolithic software."
"The most valuable feature is session monitoring."
"The user interface is quite good. It's very straightforward."
"I find it really easy and computer confident, and the experience with the product is really good. Additionally, customizations are easy."
"The GUI interface is well-designed and user-friendly."
"What I like best about this product is the interface."
"I have found the password management and the secret management features to be the most valuable. Our customers find its ease of integration and the use of power shells really attractive."
"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."
"I would like to see the shadowing of ongoing terminal sessions (Remote Desktop Mirroring)."
"Documentation could be improved if they were to include more about connectors. There is not enough documentation."
"Having more detailed reporting would improve this solution."
"There could be tweaks here and there. For example, instead of going to one main function to do this and another main function to do that, the solution could remap the user interface so that a person only has to go through one function. The way that function branches off should make a bit more sense."
"There are some things that I know are really important to include like A/B version features which are available in Windows. I would say that they should be included in the road map."
"This product is excellent in every way except minor details in handling extremely large environments."
"I think that the main interface should integrate better with non-standard applications and clients, to connect with other systems."
"We always ask for partner enablement, which is more like a soft requirement rather than a product requirement. It would be great if they can provide us deeper knowledge of their products for integration."
"It has subscription-based licensing. BeyondTrust is three times less expensive than CyberArk."
"The price of this solution is good."
"Pricing is comparable to competing products."
"The pricing is standard in this business and we have no complaints about it."
"Its price is okay. We don't compete on pricing. We seldom use price to win over our competitors. We prefer it this way because if we can sustain the price, we make more margin as well. We don't want the price to go down to the bottom where despite the win, there's no margin at all."
"Secret Server is expensive when compared to the cost to some alternatives."
"There are different plans and additional licensing costs that can be instituted for add-ons."
