Pros
All sessions are audited and they are indexed/searchable through the GUI.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 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 transparent mode for privileged sessions is one of the best thing 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 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.

Cons
Monitoring of the platform should be easier and more functional so that you can have a clear picture of the running service.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.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.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.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.

I would like to see the shadowing of ongoing terminal sessions (Remote Desktop Mirroring).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 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.
