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.

All sessions are audited and they are indexed/searchable through the GUI.The most unique and valuable features are the upstream and downstream throughput capacities; the Safeguard platform provides agile integration. In actuality, all the features are valuable. They're good, user-friendly.The transparent mode for privileged sessions is a very good solution.It is easy to manage. There is a very logical, clear user interface. Also, the integration of scripts is thoughtfully implemented. Overall, it's a nice product to manage.The technical support is tremendous.The transparent mode for privileged sessions is one of the best thing for customers, because they don't see the system in-between.The system is easy to manage, as it is not a system that you will change everything all of a sudden. It evolves most of the time with customer requests.The extensible framework for authentication is one of the most valuable features. We use an MFA plug-in and a lot of different factors, depending on what the business use-cases are. And of course, the auditing functionality is also valuable.

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.

Monitoring of the platform should be easier and more functional so that you can have a clear picture of the running service.Our experience with technical support has been disappointing. We require more prompt and faster response times. We require answers to our questions right away but we haven't received that level of support.On a scale of one to ten, the stability is an eight.The high availability function of the box requires a long time to switch over from one appliance to another.The automated change of the passwords, which is now integrated, could be improved to be more flexible regarding different systems.For some users, the physical appliance has been a bit buggy.We would like to be able to generate certificate signing requests (CSRs) from the interface for certificates.Even though we have two nodes, there's no way to do an upgrade without taking everything completely offline. It would be nice if they could improve that.
