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."

"We use the solution’s Approval Anywhere feature which enables us to add an extra layer of security for critical passwords without adding time-consuming approval processes. By using this platform, if someone goes on a vacation, out of office, or needs urgent/planned leave, then our setup will select the functions tied to that person and automatically delegate them to the next person. That person can start performing that duty based on their access. No sharing of passwords is required.""The Transparent Mode is the number one advantage of the product.""It is generally easy-to-use and install.""Being able to use a proxy server is an advantage.""The solution transparently integrates into the infrastructure and users do not notice it. I would give this feature the highest rating.""It has greatly helped improve our security posture. Safeguard has an option where it will reset passwords on service accounts, then go out to those servers where that service account is running as a service and update the password on it. That makes password changes very easy. We can regularly change passwords now and are planning on making it an annual activity, where all the people who own service accounts will go in and make sure all their passwords get changed, updated, and reset.""All sessions are audited and they are indexed/searchable through the GUI.""There are a lot of features, so it's going to sound funny, but one of the most simplistic features, the Favorites feature, is the one we like the best. You do a full run-through of configuration to check out a server and then you can save that whole configuration as a favorite. So the next time you go in, you click on the favorite that you configured and it automatically takes you to the end so you can check the server out that much faster. It saves a lot of time..."

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."

"The multilanguage functionality does not support the Arabic language, even though this solution is deployed in an Arabic region.""The product uses a lot of resources in current sessions.""The Transparent Mode could be somewhat easier to use.""I would like to see support for RDP over HTTPS so this product can be used in conjunction with the Microsoft terminal.""Transparent mode was too cumbersome, so I don't foresee us being able to use it. On paper when we were initially talking about it, it was definitely going to be the preferred method until we realized the burden it would be on our network guys. Then, we had to step back and reevaluate what we wanted to do. That's when we changed our approach to use the RD Gateway feature.""Monitoring of the platform should be easier and more functional so that you can have a clear picture of the running service.""There is room for improvement in the launch module. They built in a launch button but they don't have effective instructions for configuring it to allow it to launch an RDP session. They're working on that, but the button is in the live product. If they were going to install something that wasn't useful, they should have just disabled it and not rolled it out with the product.""From a usability perspective, what we are finding out is that our privileged domain admin users, in particular, want functionality for extending a checkout session. So we are working with One Identity support to see if there's an enhancement that can be made to the product."

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."

More CyberArk PAS Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We have a yearly license. The cost depends on how much a company wants to invest in technology. In our organization, we believe in modern digitization and automation processes so we found it affordable. One Identity was not that much less than other solutions and it is not a cheap solution. There were number of cheaper solutions. However, it's the most effective, according to our evaluation.""The pricing is about $80,000 per 100 servers. There are few elective costs.""It is a bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. You don't want to get anything too cheap because then you get cheap stuff and cheap support. That really never helps anybody.""The full license is expensive but if you plan to use it in a big organization then it is the best option because it is more flexible.""They offer a fair price for a robust solution.""It was definitely cheaper than the other two products that we evaluated.""Our licensing costs are on a yearly basis.""Setup cost, pricing and licensing are all very expensive."
