We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
CyberArk has been easy for us to implement and the adoption has been good. We've been able to standardize a bunch of things. We've been able to standardize relatively easily with the use of the platforms and managing the policies.
CyberArk is a very stable product and it's a stable product because it has a simple design and a simple architecture that allows you to leverage the economies of scale across the base of your infrastructure that you already have implemented. It doesn't really introduce any new complex pieces of infrastructure that would make it that much more difficult to scale.
When we started with RPA, there was a requirement that every credential and the bots themselves be protected through the PAM system. From the get-go, we've had CyberArk in the middle... We've got a pretty robust RPA implementation with our PAM platform. Users, bots, the credentials — everything is managed via our PAM solution.
Right off the bat, the most valuable feature is the DNA scan. It gives us the ability to scan our environment and find the accounts that we're going to need to take under control.
The Password Upload Utility tool makes it easier when setting up a Safe that contains multiple accounts and has cut down the amount of time that it takes to complete the task.
For a while, there were individual IDs having privileged access. We wanted to restrict that. We implemented the solution so that it can be more of internal control. We can have session recordings happening and reduce our attacks.
There are no issues with scalability. Our clients are very happy to use the product.
We are maintaining compliance in PCI, SOX and HIPPA, which is a big thing. Auditors really like it, and it has made us stay compliant.
The initial setup is straightforward.
The analysis engine is a very valuable feature.
What I find most valuable, is that it is easy to use.
The technical support is very good.
he solution's GUI is good.
The solution is very good because it catches a lot of threats in emails.
The most valuable feature is the protection and the way it works, the technology is what I like the most.
The most valuable feature was the EDR, endpoint detection and response.
There is a bit of a learning curve, but it's a pretty complex solution.
CyberArk has to continue to evolve with that threat landscape to make sure that they're still protecting those credentials that are owned by those that have privileged accounts in the firms.
The one place where we found that this product really needs to improve is the cloud. Simple integrations don't exist, even today. We don't have anything specific on CyberArk for managing, SaaS products, SaaS vendors, SaaS credentials. I understand it's a vendor-based thing and that they have to coordinate with the other vendors to be able to do that, and there are integrations coming. But these are the major places where CyberArk definitely needs to invest some more time.
It's a big program. To scale excessively, locally, on an on-prem application, takes a lot of servers.
Currently, in Secure Connect, an end user is required to enter account information manually, and cannot save any of this information for future use.
Integration with the ticketing system should allow any number of fields to be used for validation before allowing a user to be evaluated and able to access a server.
The initial setup of CyberArk is a challenge if you do not have prior experience with it.
Make it easier to deploy.
The integration is limited. The solution needs to offer better integration with multiple vendors.
Product could include a user interface and be made simpler for customers to configure.
Something that needs to improve, is the end-point protection.
Most people are confused about how to use the right integration of the right Fortinet product.
At least once a week we have a false alarm. This needs to be adjusted so that we get fewer of these occurrences.
The response time from technical support should be improved.
The licensing can be very confusing. It needs to be simplified.
In the next release, I would like to see machine learning and anti-exploitation included.
Pricing and Cost Advice
In comparison to other products on the market, CyberArk is a more costly product.
This solution is considered to be more expensive than others out there on the market today.
I do not have any opinions to add about the pricing of the product.
No, I do not have any advice on the price of the product.
Network and security licenses are currently being managed by other outsource vendors, so they are facing some type of problems in the digital aspect.
With reducing the privileged account access, there has been a huge improvement. They are now bringing more accounts on a little at a time.
If you are looking at implementing this solution, buy the training and go to it.
Our risk is definitely significantly lower. Also, our resources are low.
The solution is not expensive at all.
There are additional costs, which isn't included in the licensing fee.
There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
