We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the ability to delegate access to admins when they need it."
"The interface is very simple to use."
"It's highly secure and very flexible. It gives us all types of storage options and it gives us a high level of security."
"Every aspect of the solution is very well integrated, and even that gives comfort. It is a fail-safe kind of environment."
"CyberArk's GUI is user friendly."
"Service count rotation is probably one of my favorite features... The ability to automatically rotate any password I need to really helps with the entire enterprise strategy that we're pushing right now."
"It's a highly flexible solution that can adapt to each customer's needs."
"I haven't really thought about anything that I want to use it for, that I couldn't use it for."
"This solution is easy to use and to integrate."
"It can still be configured by a separate team other than developers. That's why I think it's more secure."
"The interface is very simple to navigate."
"I would prefer that this is a fully-managed service, rather than have to manage the software ourselves and keep it up to date."
"The only problem involves granting access to people who are authorized to view it."
"The initial setup could be simpler but it may not be as effective."
"Password Vault is much pricier than other solutions. A vendor team might struggle to explain why that price is justified. There are good alternatives that cost less."
"Having a cloud version would be very helpful. You have to invest a lot of money for the infrastructure hardware so the cloud version would help."
"I'd like it to be a little more granular. I want a little bit more control over exactly what we do. I know if you do that, you add more knobs and dials to deal with, but that's just my personal approach: granular access."
"CyberArk has two disadvantages; the first is that it's insanely expensive and the other is it's very complex."
"The solution is too complicated to use and should be simplified. It took me a long time to understand how to use it. There is a lot that the solution can improve for the future."
"The documentation is very general; it should have more examples and more use cases."
"We could use more documentation, primarily to do with integrations."
"The technical support was hard to get a hold of and lacking in service."
"It's an affordable platform."
"It's per-company, license-based."
"The price of this solution is expensive."
"This product is very expensive."
"CyberArk is very expensive and there are additional fees for add-ons."
"I am using the open-source version of Vault and I would have to buy a license if I want to get support."
CyberArk Enterprise Password Vault, a component of the CyberArk Privileged Access Manager Solution, is designed to discover, secure, rotate and control access to privileged account passwords used to access systems throughout the enterprise IT environment. The solution enables organizations to understand the scope of their privileged account risks and put controls in place to mitigate those risks. Flexible policies enable organizations to enforce granular privileged access controls, automate workflows and rotate passwords at a regular cadence without requiring manual IT effort. To demonstrate compliance, organizations can easily report on which users accessed what privileged accounts, when and why.
Vault is a tool for securely accessing secrets. A secret is anything that you want to tightly control access to, such as API keys, passwords, or certificates. Vault provides a unified interface to any secret, while providing tight access control and recording a detailed audit log.
