More SolarWinds Passportal Pros »

"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.""What I like best about this product is the interface.""I have found the password management and the secret management features to be the most valuable. Our customers find its ease of integration and the use of power shells really attractive.""It is able to manage storage and use of personal passwords.""There has been no downtime this year."

Cons
"In the future, I would like the ability to have diagrams, such as those created by Visio, available directly in Passportal."

"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.""I think that the main interface should integrate better with non-standard applications and clients, to connect with other systems.""We always ask for partner enablement, which is more like a soft requirement rather than a product requirement. It would be great if they can provide us deeper knowledge of their products for integration.""The API is no good.""It is expensive compared to other solutions in this category and for what it does."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We pay the license fee monthly and the price is reasonable."

More SolarWinds Passportal Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price of this solution is good.""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.""There is an annual license fee per user and the price is fair.""It is very expensive, and its price should be lower.""Pricing is comparable to competing products."
