Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""The GUI interface is well-designed and user-friendly.""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."

"The interface is very simple. It doesn't need any plug-ins, just browsers that are installed at the beginning.""Its video recording capabilities have definitely been key for us.""I like that it's Linux-based, and you don't need to have separate implementations, extra database licenses, or enterprise licenses. I think because it's Linux-based, it's more seamless than Windows. I also like the access manager, which I think is a super tool. Everything is browser-based, and you don't need a VPN. So, that's a great thing."

Cons
"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.""This product is excellent in every way except minor details in handling extremely large environments.""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 product doesn't have behavior analytics. They promised to develop this, but only for the cloud, not for on-premise versions.""For me, the main issue has to do with the system performance itself.""It would be better if I could manage multiple accounts in one place, like CyberArk. With WALLIX, you can only manage one account, and you are given a separate category. You have to click on each connection to do anything. For example, CyberArk might give three options for one connection if you want to have an interactive user-level experience. But with WALLIX, you have to click three times to get that access. Also, the biggest disadvantage of WALLIX is the reporting. I feel like it's very weak in reporting when compared to the other solutions. As a solution, they're good and stable. But they need to make their reports neater and better. Right now, we're going to the console and then pressing buttons every single time."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""There is an annual license fee per user and the price is fair.""It is very expensive, and its price should be lower."
