Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The extensible framework for authentication is one of the most valuable features. We use an MFA plug-in and a lot of different factors, depending on what the business use-cases are. And of course, the auditing functionality is also valuable.""The transparent mode for privileged sessions is one of the best things for customers, because they don't see the system in-between.""The system is easy to manage, as it is not a system that you will change everything all of a sudden. It evolves most of the time with customer requests.""The transparent mode for privileged sessions is a very good solution.""It is easy to manage. There is a very logical, clear user interface. Also, the integration of scripts is thoughtfully implemented. Overall, it's a nice product to manage.""The technical support is tremendous.""The most unique and valuable features are the upstream and downstream throughput capacities; the Safeguard platform provides agile integration. In actuality, all the features are valuable. They're good, user-friendly.""The way the solution is installed and deployed is very valuable. They make it very easy."

"CA PAM is working well for us.""The DB clustering is a really good benefit of using CA PAM.""We have received good support from the tech support team.""It reduces the viral attacks on my website. It also allows certain users access to see what happens daily.""Comprehensive coverage of the required features for the PAM solution."

Cons
"Even though we have two nodes, there's no way to do an upgrade without taking everything completely offline. It would be nice if they could improve that.""For some users, the physical appliance has been a bit buggy.""We would like to be able to generate certificate signing requests (CSRs) from the interface for certificates.""On a scale of one to ten, the stability is an eight.""The high availability function of the box requires a long time to switch over from one appliance to another.""The automated change of the passwords, which is now integrated, could be improved to be more flexible regarding different systems.""Our experience with technical support has been disappointing. We require more prompt and faster response times. We require answers to our questions right away but we haven't received that level of support.""I would like to see an adjustment with more enterprise architecture. You can buy multiple appliances but you can not fully separate different functions, so scaling might be a bit more complicated."

"An improvement for this solution is that it should not be constantly based on user name and password. There should be a condition to edit and update your username.""I would like this solution to be simpler. It should have a one-click access that works together with AWS.""The setup is complex.""The management console could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Setup cost, pricing and licensing are all very expensive.""Our licensing costs are on a yearly basis.""It was definitely cheaper than the other two products that we evaluated.""They offer a fair price for a robust solution.""The full license is expensive but if you plan to use it in a big organization then it is the best option because it is more flexible.""It is a bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. You don't want to get anything too cheap because then you get cheap stuff and cheap support. That really never helps anybody.""The pricing is about $80,000 per 100 servers. There are few elective costs.""We have a yearly license. The cost depends on how much a company wants to invest in technology. In our organization, we believe in modern digitization and automation processes so we found it affordable. One Identity was not that much less than other solutions and it is not a cheap solution. There were number of cheaper solutions. However, it's the most effective, according to our evaluation."

"I would prefer better licensing options for the 20-100 users we have at a given time.""It is more expensive than other solutions on the market.""It is reasonably priced."
