We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"What I like the most is the fact that I can just mark anything and it is automatically copied into the clipboard."
"Keeper was user-friendly."
"The ability to autofill the login credentials has saved me a lot of time in my day to day computing."
"I like a couple of things about this solution. Being able to share passwords with other people is valuable. You can see if the information is out on the dark web and whether you have weak passwords and the last time they were changed. You could also have the 2FA or MFA codes embedded in the application so that you don't have to use your phone or any other 2FA device, which is something very important."
"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 organization of items needs improvement. For example, when I log onto the cloud version as well, everything is shown on my folder. It is hard to differentiate between files and documents in my list of items I have stored inside."
"I would love it if you didn't have to re-authenticate when you start up a new browser."
"Room for improvement in my eyes would be being able to share my credit cards and other types of information. The only thing they really share is passwords, and you can only do it with one password at a time. When you're trying to share it out or trying to remove it from being shared, you can't do multiple selections."
"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."
"We chose their optional annual subscription; I believe we paid monthly — I thought it was a good deal."
"The pricing is available on the vendor's website."
"Its price is reasonable."
