Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""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.""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.""The risk of lost password and forbidden access to resources has been drastically reduced which increased the security level for the entire company,""The technical support is good.""The most valuable feature is Special Monitoring.""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."

"The solution's most valuable aspect is that it easy to install. The user experience is very good.""The solution is easy to learn and makes it easy for our users to add FortiToken. It's very easy to integrate if you have other Fortinet devices.""For someone concerned with multifactor authentication, I'm satisfied with the product.""We use this product for SSL two-factor authentication and FortiToken management.""The logs have great detail that make it easier to evaluate and control the security environment.""The ease of use is really nice. Using Authenticator, I've been able to actually work better on my authentication due to the fact that I have a single fabric to authenticate control from my firewall and on my access points. Authentication takes place from this area.""FortiAuthenticator is really good software that integrates very well with Fortinet products.""Intuitive interface and easy to deploy."

Cons
"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.""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.""There is a bit of a learning curve, but it's a pretty complex solution.""It needs better documentation with more examples for the configuration files and API/REST integration""We found a lot of errors during the initial setup. They should work to improve the implementation experience and to remove errors from the process.""The authentication port is available in CyberArk Alero but not Fortinet products.""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 hardware aspect of the solution could be improved. We are not really able to understand the hardware capabilities of the device.""We have issues with HA (high availability). These should be addressed in future releases.""No SMS gateway from the ISP""It does the job I paid for, but the graphical interface could be improved.""It can not use SQL to query FortiAnalyzer directly.""The solution could be more automated. It should be able to let me automate a lot of things so that what normally is done as a matter of manual processes can be handled quicker. Slow integrations can be taken up/out if there was more automation.""I would like to see more ways to authenticate, such as adding facial recognition to the two-factor, where you log into your phone or another device.""Integration with some other enterprise applications could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I believe that this solution is priced well. It's the market leader and I think that it's the best solution.""Overall, its pricing is really good. The main difference from all the other vendors is that they have one package that covers all the functionality and modules of the basic PAM, except the add-on modules like adware and server protection. It also doesn't include the licenses for domain controller protection or maybe an API call-related feature. For the basic privileged access management, the bundle pricing is really good, but when it comes to an agent-based solution for advanced cyber protection or application identity managers, it is expensive. Services are also very expensive if you hire the services team from CyberArk, but these guys are really good. For a couple of large banking projects, we had an experience with them. The banks wanted to have things quickly and efficiently, so we had to hire them. If we take four weeks, these guys can do everything on a weekend. They charge quite a big sum of money, but they know the system well.""The price of this solution is quite reasonable.""The solution is very expensive and requires a license. We pay for an enterprise license.""Pricing is quite high and it could be improved.""They have two types of licensing: purchase and subscription. You have to pay for each admin user, such as Microsoft admin, mail admin, database admin, etc."

"You can pay as you go with them. You purchase a base license and add to it as needed.""The product could be more competitively priced.""It costs more to license the high-availability option.""The licensing structure is cost-effective for us compared to some of the other solutions that have recurring monthly costs.""FAC is an affordable solution for Middle Range (200E/400E) and also needs a package of mobility agents (2,000) perpetual."
