We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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.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.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.We are able to know who is accessing what and when; having accountability.This solution is quite stable.The most valuable feature is that it always provides flexibility, password quality and one-time user check-in and check-out.I really like the PTA (Privileged Threat Analytics). I find this the best feature.

Cons
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.Currently, in Secure Connect, an end user is required to enter account information manually, and cannot save any of this information for future use.The initial setup of CyberArk is a challenge if you do not have prior experience with it.Make it easier to deploy.I think having a distributed architecture would certainly help this solution.There was a functionality of the solution that was missing. I had noticed it in Beyond Trust, but not in this solution. But, recently they have incorporated something similar.If we could have some kind of out-of-the box feature that you can simply say "no" so they don't have to go into a development mode, that would a really helpful feature.Tech support staff can be more proactive.
