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."
"I would tell others that this solution is reliable. If they are looking for a solution that is reliable and that is scalable, then this is a good one."
"The scalability of the solution is good. We haven't felt we've been restricted from expanding as necessary and we haven't heard of any issues from our clients."
"In general, the customization that is offered is very good. The company that I am working with currently is using this feature quite extensively."
"The product allows customization via custom code."
"The product was built to be scalable."
"Once it is set up, it is easy to use and it integrates with most of the products on the market."
"From a technical perspective, the solution is very good we can operate and control the user by ourselves."
"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."
"In the next release, I would like to see improvements made to the interface."
"The mobile access to the solution isn't ideal. They should work to improve its functionality."
"The pricing of the solution is in need of improvement. Oracle products are very expensive."
"The technical support is not very good at all."
"The product is complicated and difficult to install and configure."
"There are problems with stability."
"The initial implementation can definitely be improved because you have to work on several components to configure it correctly."
"There could be some improvements in the documentation and overall knowledge base of the solution."
"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."
"The price is really good and it is flexible because they have CPU licenses. The license is a one-time-only purchase."
