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

Pros
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.

When logging on to Azure AD it's pretty quick.Configuring the domain and setting it up in the Azure portal is just three clicks to be honest.The most beneficial feature would be the effectiveness of having a hybrid set-up.It's very easy to run and it's part of their ecosystem and I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon.The ability to speed up ability is an asset.The self-password reset if it's enabled and configured properly, really helps a company be able to reset rather than getting IT involved.Just because I've been in the Azure space since it started out and in the Microsoft Cloud AD since the BPOS days in the early 2000s, and it's just a product that made life simpler for my clients to be able to integrate everything.It is a really nice tool and we have a license for the more complex model.

Cons
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.

At first, it was a bit challenging to come up with a workaround that would get authentication to work.Initially, we wanted to exclude specific users from MSA. So, we had a condition policy, which forces MSA for all the users. So we wanted to exclude users who are using an NPS extension. So it was not listed, as a NPS extension was not listed outside an application, in actual, so, we go back and were not able to exclude users using NPS extension from MSA. So that was one limitation that we found and we had to work around that.Tech support is inconsistent.To look at more documentation, engineering, or an open standard would be nice.Microsoft has so many different requirements and priorities that sometimes they don't invest all their energy into the products that you have expectations to investigate.Documentation I think is always the worst part with what Azure's doing right now across the board.Whatever business requirements we needed in the past three years, users were created, with the name of the user and they were not connected with the Active Directory. We were trying to in house in three years and with directory, but we were not able to achieve it.Be aware that it may not work perfectly globally yet. There are still glitches with the solution in Africa.

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.
