We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The privileged account management feature is what I like most."
"This is a cloud-based application, which makes it very easy to deploy."
"The interface is very simple. It doesn't need any plug-ins, just browsers that are installed at the beginning."
"Its video recording capabilities have definitely been key for us."
"I like that it's Linux-based, and you don't need to have separate implementations, extra database licenses, or enterprise licenses. I think because it's Linux-based, it's more seamless than Windows. I also like the access manager, which I think is a super tool. Everything is browser-based, and you don't need a VPN. So, that's a great thing."
"The initial setup is a bit complex."
"This solution needs better integration with third-party solutions because their ability to support other tools is very weak."
"The product doesn't have behavior analytics. They promised to develop this, but only for the cloud, not for on-premise versions."
"For me, the main issue has to do with the system performance itself."
"It would be better if I could manage multiple accounts in one place, like CyberArk. With WALLIX, you can only manage one account, and you are given a separate category. You have to click on each connection to do anything. For example, CyberArk might give three options for one connection if you want to have an interactive user-level experience. But with WALLIX, you have to click three times to get that access. Also, the biggest disadvantage of WALLIX is the reporting. I feel like it's very weak in reporting when compared to the other solutions. As a solution, they're good and stable. But they need to make their reports neater and better. Right now, we're going to the console and then pressing buttons every single time."
"It is sad that people with a limited budget won't be able to afford it."
"The price model is based on the number of devices and opposed to the number of users, and it is not very flexible."
Centrify Privilege Service provides all of your IT administration teams with secure, granular access to infrastructure regardless of location, and without the hassles of a VPN.
Secure browser-based access Authorized IT users launch management sessions for resources directly from the Privilege Service portal. Sessions use SSH and RDP protocols, and are always protected end-to-end.
Access across organizational boundaries Privilege Service enables you to authenticate your IT users through Active Directory, LDAP Centrify Cloud Directory, or Google G Suite
Directory. You can use one or any combination of these identity stores to grant granular access to employees, business partners and outside vendors.
Grant access to specific resources Unlike a VPN, Privilege Service enables you to grant access to
resources on a on a per-resource basis. This means that you can easily give your internal IT admins access to as much of your infrastructure as necessary, while limiting access by an outsourced
team to only the servers and network hardware their business role or IT function requires.
Access from any location Your IT admins can log in and securely access resources from any location that can reach the Privilege Service. For user logins outside the corporate network, you can require Centrify’s built-in multi-factor authentication for security stronger than a user name and password.
WALLIX offers cybersecurity and privileged access management solutions that secure and protect your most critical IT assets.
