Enterprise Password Vault, Privilege Session Manager & Application Identity Management have been very useful for our...
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.
The voice technology is very good.
It is very simple to use.
CyberArk is not just an IT security or cybersecurity tool. It's also an administrator tool. I had a fair number of systems where the passwords were not fully managed by CyberArk yet, and they were expiring every 30 or 45 days. I was able to get management turned on for those accounts. From an administrator perspective, I didn't have to go back into those systems and manually change those passwords anymore. CyberArk... lightened the load on our administrative work.
You can write different types of policies for custom business needs or any developer needs. If they need certain functions allocated, they can be customized easily.
We can make a policy that affects everybody instantly.
We have accomplished our security goals. We have two-factor authenticated and vaulted our important accounts, so people can't just steal stuff from us.
The flexibility of integrating with other technologies is important because of a lot of applications - a lot of COTS products - are not supported when we are bringing the application IDs. The CyberArk platform provides a lot of opportunities to do customization.
We are maintaining compliance in PCI, SOX and HIPPA, which is a big thing. Auditors really like it, and it has made us stay compliant.
It should support XWindows Remote Desktop Access protocol for Linux/Unix.
It only has limited support for Mac.
Reports to the end user.
The initial setup was somewhat complex.
This is probably a common thing, but they do ask for a lot of log files, a lot of information. They ask you to provide a lot of information to them before they're willing to give you anything at all upfront. It would be better if they were a little more give-and-take upfront: "Why don't you try these couple of things while we take your log files and stuff and go research them?" A little bit of that might be more helpful.
The interface on version 9 looks old.
One of our current issues is a publishing issue. If we whitelist Google Chrome, all the events of Google Chrome should be gone. It is not happening.
CyberArk has a lot on the privileged access side but they have to concentrate more on the application side as well.
Make it easier to deploy.
There is some stuff that we still have not fully integrated, which is our AIM solution. We are having all types of issues with it. I have been working with Level 3 support on it, but otherwise, from a functionality perspective, everything has been working except for the AIM solution.
We had an issue with the Copy feature... Apparently, in version 10, that Copy feature does not work. You actually have to click Show and then copy the password from within Show and then paste it. We've had a million tickets and we had to figure out a workaround to it.
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.
With reducing the privileged account access, there has been a huge improvement. They are now bringing more accounts on a little at a time.
If you are looking at implementing this solution, buy the training and go to it.
Our risk is definitely significantly lower. Also, our resources are low.
The cost is high compared to other products.
CyberArk provides all the features bundled. This is compared to other vendors who provide them as a different license for each functionality.
Cost efficiency is the number one thing that can be improved in my mind. This would change lots of companies minds on purchasing the product.
It can be an expensive product.
It is not a cheap solution. It is expensive as compared with other solutions. However, it is one of the best solutions in their domain.
