What is most valuable?

Session recording, as it covers compliance and it also covers our in-house applications.

How has it helped my organization?

It was much more challenging to support Arabic language and some legacy IE9 supported applications integration. But Professional Services solved the issues very well.

What needs improvement?

It should support the SQL Always On platform with FQDN name instead of IP, so where all the databases are managed centrally. In our company, we are not managing… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is low and licensing is flexible.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not have a previous solution. We evaluated some solutions and then started using ARCON. We found the potential was there in ARCON because it was supporting the… more»

What other advice do I have?

Definitely go for user training before full deployment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated TPAM, Centrify, CA, CyberArk and InspectView and, of course, ARCON. There were a couple of other products which were causing us pain points, like Tripwire… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspects were its ease of use because the software is monolithic, so you only have to install the web services and then there's a database, so it's very easy to use and to configure. There are no further modules so… more»

What needs improvement?

I think the services could be improved by making it more 'friendly.' Documentation could be improved if they were to include more about connectors. Technically speaking, and in comparison to other software such as CyberArk, the… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm a technicial person so I don't know about setup costs.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

There is a lot of risk management software around. I decided to switch to Thycotic, first of all, because we were starting a new project and it was a challenge for me and a new software I wanted to try. That was the main reason for the… more»

What other advice do I have?

In general, I would recommend the product. It's very good and is cheaper than CyberArk. It's something that a team leader or project manager would take into consideration because even the cost of the license is something to keep in mind… more»

What is most valuable?

The privileged access management into sensitive systems is very valuable. That includes control from the endpoint all the way through to the managing of passwords and credentials that are used by the person to access the sensitive information. It's very useful because nobody ever really maintains passwords for those endpoint systems. It's maintained in the Dropbox password file.

What needs improvement?

This depends on the client. Some clients find the granular approach a lot better than the simplified approach and some clients prefer the simplified approach better than the granular approach. Depending on the type of organization and type of information that must be protected, there are obviously different requirements.

What other advice do I have?

Approach it slowly. Don't rush in and drop things down there. Do it carefully, because you might end up breaking access to systems, which is complicated when you're running a production environment. Make sure you go through the testing process vigorously before you deploy. I would give BeyondTrust a seven out of ten. There are some features in CyberArk that are better, cheaper, or easier to… more»

What is most valuable?

The DB clustering is a really good benefit of using CA PAM.

What needs improvement?

An improvement for this solution is that it should not be constantly based on user name and password. There should be a condition to edit and update your username. Also, it would be nice to have a… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I would prefer better licensing options for the 20-100 users we have at a given time.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have previous experience with CyberArk.

What other advice do I have?

So when we are trying develop some particular portal, when you are looking with loop-back IP, connecting the backend by a loop-back IP, the response is coming by an actual IP - that's the portal… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also considered CyberArk.

What is most valuable?

The way the solution is installed and deployed is very valuable. They make it very easy. The two-factor identification is very good. For the web portal, you need to implement a jump sever. It's not a native HTML protocol. This is probably… more»

What needs improvement?

I've only been using the solution for a limited time, so in terms of speaking to improvements, I'm not sure I can say. I need more time with the solution to use it in order to properly evaluate it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing is cheaper than CyberArk.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously used CyberArk. It was a much more difficult solution to work with and deploy.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. It's easier to use than its competitors. I'd rate it eight out of ten.
