Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It reduces the viral attacks on my website. It also allows certain users access to see what happens daily.
We have received good support from the tech support team.
CA PAM is working well for us.
The DB clustering is a really good benefit of using CA PAM.
We can enforce complicated password policies and very important frequent password changes.
The product is very scalable in terms of concurrent sessions that it can handle at a time, number of device it can support, accounts that it can manage, or number of nodes that you can deploy in a cluster.
The key benefits are we improve our governance. We ensure we can build more trust in the way we run and operate our environment, and most of all is the accountability.
One of the key things for us about the product is around its simplicity. Being able to put in the technology that allows the business to remove complexity and also allow the security improvements.
It has drastically reduced the attack surface for local administrative rights and the chance of escalation of privilege. We've removed, at this point, close to 98 percent of the local administrative accounts on workstations. If there were an incident, it would stop at that point and we'd be able to know.
Monitoring and recording are valuable features, particularly the recording.
This is the number one product for privilege account security.
The setup is complex.
I would like this solution to be simpler. It should have a one-click access that works together with AWS.
An improvement for this solution is that it should not be constantly based on user name and password. There should be a condition to edit and update your username.
We experience stability issues after every patch upgrade. This is a place where CA needs to improve drastically.
The service account management functionality needs to be extended to application pools, SQL database, PowerShell scripts, service account discovery, etc.
Bring more technology into the portfolio and being able to collapse those products into a much more integrated way.
They need to do a little bit more on the mainframe side.
We have had some major issues with the tool, but we have worked with the R&D teams and we have worked with support. There is room for improvement, especially on response times. But they're working on it and they're doing the best they can.
I'd like to see the product include out of the box connectors.
For an experienced system implementer it will take approximately one day. However, for somebody who is inexperienced it may take up to five days.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It is reasonably priced.
It is more expensive than other solutions on the market.
I would prefer better licensing options for the 20-100 users we have at a given time.
Pricing is fair compared to other top vendors.
The licensing is simple and scalable.
licensing for this solution is based on the number of APV (privileged users), and the number of sessions that you want to record.
