We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is that this solution can be implemented regardless of the operating system."
"Its security, simplicity, and ease of deployment and maintenance are the most valuable. It is FIPS compliant, so it goes through severe penetration testing every one year or two years. They have to maintain this compliance. It is very safe. Customers have been using it in the last eight years because of the simplicity of getting it deployed quickly. Most of the people using the solution had been hacked already, so they needed it quickly. As compared to the other solutions in the market, it can be turned on in production very quickly. You don't really need to have a server. It can be deployed very rapidly on VMware or Hyper-V, and you don't need to do an installation. It is a kind of an all-included package that you just deploy in a VM environment. It is basically a VM that is specifically built for a customer. The way the PRA data solutions work is that you need to build them for each customer because of being hard-coded with their SSL certificate, their web page name, and all that."
"The scalability is excellent."
"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."
"Changing your password should be simplified, and there should not be a charge for it."
"It would be very nice if it has an enterprise vault. Currently, it can interact with Password Safe, which is a separate solution and equivalent to Thycotic Secret Server. Instead of having Password Safe as a separate entity, they should combine it with BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access. They have done it in some way, but it is not an enterprise tech solution."
"They could probably integrate a wizard or something like that to add a new use case. It could be something that makes it easier to add a new use case."
"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."
"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."
"There is an annual license fee per user and the price is fair."
