Cloud-based service and management.The two-factor authentication is most definitely valuable and moves us closer to being able to check off those important boxes for compliance.In this version 9.1, lots of changes are done for the dashboard, User Store etc.

Cons
Currently, in Secure Connect, an end user is required to enter account information manually, and cannot save any of this information for future use.Online help needs to be looked into with live agent support.The product documentation has to be more precise in certain aspects with explanations for functionality limitations along with reference material or screenshots.New functionalities and discovered bugs take longer to patch. We would greatly appreciate quicker development of security patches and bug corrections.​It's hard to find competent resellers/support.Initial setup is complex. Lots of architecture, lots of planning, and lots of education and training are needed.it manages creds based on Organizational Units. That is, a "safe" is limited to specific OUs. That makes for very elaborate OU structure, or you risk exposing too many devices by putting most of them in fewer OUs.It is easily customized, and that customization makes it very easy to start trying to shoehorn the solution into roles it was never intended to fill.

Also, the logs, reports, and dashboard can be improved.

It is expensive as compared with other solutions. However, it is one of the best solutions in their domain.Pricing and licensing depend on the environment.
