We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
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.
The most valuable features are the administration console and its detection and response module.
It stops in excess of twenty-five malware events per month, all of which could be critical to the business.
It is very scalable.
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.
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.
I would like to see future versions of the solution incorporate artificial intelligence technology.
This solution needs to be made "cloud ready".
The initial setup was industry standard complex. It takes awhile and has a lot of planning involved. It could be simplified with product redesign.
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.
Our licensing fees for this solution are approximately one million dollars per year.
The product is expensive, but it is better than the rest of them in the industry.
