Quotes From Members Comparing CyberArk Privileged Access Security vs IBM Tivoli Access Manager

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The voice technology is very good.It is very simple to use.CyberArk is not just an IT security or cybersecurity tool. It's also an administrator tool. I had a fair number of systems where the passwords were not fully managed by CyberArk yet, and they were expiring every 30 or 45 days. I was able to get management turned on for those accounts. From an administrator perspective, I didn't have to go back into those systems and manually change those passwords anymore. CyberArk... lightened the load on our administrative work.You can write different types of policies for custom business needs or any developer needs. If they need certain functions allocated, they can be customized easily.We can make a policy that affects everybody instantly.We have accomplished our security goals. We have two-factor authenticated and vaulted our important accounts, so people can't just steal stuff from us.The flexibility of integrating with other technologies is important because of a lot of applications - a lot of COTS products - are not supported when we are bringing the application IDs. The CyberArk platform provides a lot of opportunities to do customization.We are maintaining compliance in PCI, SOX and HIPPA, which is a big thing. Auditors really like it, and it has made us stay compliant.

Cons
The initial setup was somewhat complex.This is probably a common thing, but they do ask for a lot of log files, a lot of information. They ask you to provide a lot of information to them before they're willing to give you anything at all upfront. It would be better if they were a little more give-and-take upfront: "Why don't you try these couple of things while we take your log files and stuff and go research them?" A little bit of that might be more helpful.The interface on version 9 looks old.One of our current issues is a publishing issue. If we whitelist Google Chrome, all the events of Google Chrome should be gone. It is not happening.CyberArk has a lot on the privileged access side but they have to concentrate more on the application side as well.Make it easier to deploy.There is some stuff that we still have not fully integrated, which is our AIM solution. We are having all types of issues with it. I have been working with Level 3 support on it, but otherwise, from a functionality perspective, everything has been working except for the AIM solution. We had an issue with the Copy feature... Apparently, in version 10, that Copy feature does not work. You actually have to click Show and then copy the password from within Show and then paste it. We've had a million tickets and we had to figure out a workaround to it.

Pricing and Cost Advice
