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."

"The ability to give some groups access to different kind of databases with the storage of a password is the most valuable feature.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the random changing of passwords.""Provides us with the ability to control access [to secrets] by groups.""It offers the possibility of secure administration of hardware devices, as well as Linux systems administration from a Windows environment.""Ease of use because of its monolithic software.""The most valuable feature is session monitoring.""The user interface is quite good. It's very straightforward.""I find it really easy and computer confident, and the experience with the product is really good. Additionally, customizations are easy."

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."

"I don't know what kind of a cryptographic it uses to encrypt the password but it should be one of the stronger ones. Some of the cryptos have been accessed by hackers.""We could definitely use some help with API tokenization. If we had a way to store tokens that would be fabulous.""One of the things that we want is to be able to do some of the management of it using APIs.""I would like to see the shadowing of ongoing terminal sessions (Remote Desktop Mirroring).""Documentation could be improved if they were to include more about connectors. There is not enough documentation.""Having more detailed reporting would improve this solution.""There could be tweaks here and there. For example, instead of going to one main function to do this and another main function to do that, the solution could remap the user interface so that a person only has to go through one function. The way that function branches off should make a bit more sense.""There are some things that I know are really important to include like A/B version features which are available in Windows. I would say that they should be included in the road map."

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."

More One Identity Safeguard Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It isn't terribly expensive.""The price of this solution is good.""Pricing is comparable to competing products.""The pricing is standard in this business and we have no complaints about it.""Its price is okay. We don't compete on pricing. We seldom use price to win over our competitors. We prefer it this way because if we can sustain the price, we make more margin as well. We don't want the price to go down to the bottom where despite the win, there's no margin at all.""Secret Server is expensive when compared to the cost to some alternatives.""There are different plans and additional licensing costs that can be instituted for add-ons."
