We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Our most valuable features would probably be key rotation, the SKM or SSH key manager, and account discovery."
"Security is the solution's most valuable feature. As far as I know, this solution is the most secure system of this class on the market today, even considering another management system like Fudo Security, which we also use. The integration capabilities are very good; it helps strengthen our overall security."
"Session monitoring is excellent. It may be the solution's most valuable aspect."
"The most valuable feature is that it is flexible. It has many connectors. that have done well, the EPV and SSH sessions are all being recorded and everything works fine."
"The most valuable feature is the special management. It records the activity and the actions that we use for auditing."
"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."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to delegate access to admins when they need it."
"The interface is very simple to use."
"A high level of security."
"The most valuable feature is that you can retrieve user account details from the cloud."
"The most valuable features are ease of use and enabling our clients to manage keys."
"The security on offer seems to be quite good."
"This solution speeds up the product development life cycle. That is, the time from the development of the product to the time to market is drastically reduced because of the CI/CD pipelines. You can have your code deployed within a matter of minutes."
"Technical support is helpful."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to store secrets securely and encrypt them. It is pretty easy and straightforward to use."
"The GUI was quite easy for me to use."
"I think they can improve account onboarding. For instance, you have to use the Password Vault utility, whereas in Thycotic I think there is a feature in the user interface that allows you to upload your account with an Excel file. So I'd like to have a similar thing in CyberArk."
"The solution is too big and complex for any businesses that are small or medium-sized. They should offer a more compact version or make a solution better suited to smaller businesses."
"The initial setup could be simplified. Right now, in comparison to its nearest competitors, it's quite complex."
"In the next release, they could simplify the setup and I would like some tasks added like file sharing. When a client connects to CyberArk and wants to put a file on the server, they cannot."
"The stability depends on the infrastructure it is installed on, which is important because CyberArk does not have the hardware appliance."
"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."
"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 installation process should be easier and more user-friendly so that you don't need to hire a third party to deploy it."
"Inability to access the solution on the phone."
"Azure needs to provide versions of Key Vault that are suitable for different sizes of companies."
"The initial setup could be less complex for first-time users."
"While the solution already does a great job of managing keys, the solution could probably look at maybe expanding more into mobile devices and endpoints."
"Azure has great documentation, but I would like to see more use cases pertaining to specific industries. For example, case studies on how to use HIPAA compliant solutions in the healthcare industry or how to use PCI compliant data analytics solutions in the financial technology industry would be helpful."
"It needs to offer dynamic secrets management."
"I would like more code examples."
"The integration with Thales HSM is complex and is not out-of-the-box. Uploading the keys was quite a tedious process."
"This solution is expensive."
"The price of this solution is expensive."
"This product is very expensive."
"CyberArk is very expensive and there are additional fees for add-ons."
"It's per-company, license-based."
"It's an affordable platform."
"The cost of the Azure Key Vault is very high and the pricing model is based on the number of keys that you store and retrieve."
"The pricing is decent. It has a pretty low price. It is a straightforward cost based on usage."
"Pricing is quite reasonable and support is included, although premium support is available for an additional fee."
"Key Vault, like every Azure service, has a cost associated with it, but you don't have to spend thousands of dollars to spin up an environment to build a key management system. It's already there."
"The price of the solution is reasonable for what we are using it for."
"Azure is cheaper than CyberArk... CyberArk is good, but it's quite expensive."
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.
