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

Pros
"The risk of lost password and forbidden access to resources has been drastically reduced which increased the security level for the entire company,""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."

"ObserveIT is small, easy to use, easy to deploy, and is not complicated, so it's more generally suited for only SMBs. It's a good value with a cheaper price."

Cons
"It needs better documentation with more examples for the configuration files and API/REST integration""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."

"ObserveIT is not scalable and it's not for the medium to large corporations. It's for the smaller environments. For the larger corporations, we have other scalable solutions."

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."
