One of the best kept secrets.

What is our primary use case?

Our clients' primary use case for BeyondTrust Password Safe is managing Windows Privileged Accounts, Linux, and Fit client databases, and for accessing a different database, like Visual Studio, SQL Manager, and things like that. We usually deploy it in a double server, high availability with disaster recovery. It is the primary software architecture.

Pros and Cons

  • "BeyondTrust Password Safe's features that I have found most valuable are really those that are knitted in. That is their Smart Rules and Smart Groups, where you design your administration model so you create your AD groups and your asset groups, and configure Password Safe."

  • "This product is excellent in every way except minor details in handling extremely large environments."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Thycotic as probably a nine. That is only because I have to rank them slightly lower after we decided to make the switch to CyberArk, and replacing a product that is a ten would not make a lot of sense. So a nine-out-of-ten it is. Thycotic is a product that is so friendly that it can be used by nearly anyone and everyone, and that is a good place to be. As for the limitations in a very large environment, Thycotic could invest in making changes in the product to handle structuring in a segmented way. It would be…
