What is most valuable?

It is working as it's supposed to work. We had a lot of good support from the One Identity team who helped us build it and do a test. We are able to log and get reporting on all privileged activity… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Anytime new tools and technologies are being brought into the bank, the biggest impact is to the process, procedures, and culture. There is a culture change when any new technology gets rolled out… more »

What needs improvement?

Some of the out-of-the-box reporting isn't that rich. We spoke to our Safeguard reps who have acknowledged that some of the reporting features can certainly be improved and that we're not the only… more »

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

We did not use another solution previously. Prior to this Safeguard implementation, we did not know when somebody was using their elevated privileges to do certain features or functions. We only hoped… more »

What other advice do I have?

The solution is part of our identity and access management product. We use Saviynt as our identity, governance and administrative tool. We certify all privilege accounts on a schedule basis. There is… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

In addition to Safeguard, we looked at a product by the name of CyberArk and one by the name of BeyondTrust. These were the three products that we brought in for a proof of concept. In the summer of… more »

What is most valuable?

One of the best things about Thycotic is that it is very easy-to-use. It is logical, it has well-designed screens and a nice GUI interface. It has good performance and is generally a pleasure to operate.

What needs improvement?

If you look at Thycotic, it is a great product that has pretty much all the same features as CyberArk — which will be replacing it. There is not much difference between the two. We will be switching away from using Thycotic, however, before… more »

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

I think the pricing of Thycotic and CyberArk products are very similar.

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

This will be the last year Thycotic will be in operation at Healthcare in Norway because it will be replaced by CyberArk at some time this year. I think there are some very small things in Thycotic which are a little harder to do, and that… more »

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… more »

Team Lead, Network Infrastructure Business at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
Feb 26 2020

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the asset discovery, which makes it very easy to locate and identify assets and pull them into the manager.

What needs improvement?

The help system should be improved to provide a quick help guide with each tab within the solution, which explains what each particular function does. This would help because sometimes, you can get lost and you find yourself going back to… more »

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

This solution is expensive compared to its competitors.

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

We offer a variety of competing solutions to our clients, such as CyberArk. In general, the competitors are cheaper in price. I have not personally used other solutions because it was BeyondTrust that brought me into the privileged access… more »

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution that I would recommend, but in the Nigerian market, the price of this solution is challenging. Many companies are choosing competing solutions like CyberArk because the cost is lower. If the price were more friendly… 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.
