Pros
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.

Cons
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.​Instead of just giving passwords to the user based on job function, from auditing perspective, turn that cycle around. That would really help from an auditing standpoint.
