Core Analyst/ Server Admin at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
Jul 24 2018

What is most valuable?

The basic features are, themselves, highly useful. I was just saying to some CyberArk people that I came to understand fairly early on that CyberArk is not just an IT security or cybersecurity tool… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has given us a common environment where all of our critical infrastructure credentials can be stored. From the pure usability and administrative perspective, I can't imagine doing what we do… more»

What needs improvement?

Things that they were speaking about, here at the Impact 2018 conference, are things that we've already been looking it. They have been on our radar, things like OPM. We're beginning to use PSMP a… more»

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

We were using KeePass before we got CyberArk, and I can't imagine trying to manage the number of accounts and credentials we have today, and the number of systems, with something like KeePass. It… more»

What other advice do I have?

One big piece of advice I would give is: Don't ignore user acceptance. If you want people to use CyberArk, you have to pay attention to user acceptance. If your users hate it, then your entire… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The team that I'm on, we weren't leading up the investigative part. Our security group did that. They're the ones who brought CyberArk to us and said, "This is the one we're going to go with." There… more»

What is most valuable?

It has an automatic password rotation. We have so many accounts, and being such a large organization, it helps take a lot of maintenance off of our plates, as well as automating a lot of those… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Right out of the gate, three years ago, we secured all of our Windows Servers and all of our local administrator accounts. We followed that with all of their root accounts for our Unix servers. We… more»

What needs improvement?

One of the things that I have been wanting is that we use the Privileged Threat Analytics (PTA) solution, and it is a complete standalone solution, but they will be integrating it into the vault and… more»

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

We did not use another solution before CyberArk. The big thing that was a catalyst for us to look at CyberArk was the Anthem breach that happened back in 2014 or 2015. Being a healthcare organization… more»

What other advice do I have?

CyberArk is a fantastic solution. They understand what the industry is trending towards. They are able to meet that very quickly. Being in healthcare, we are a little bit behind the times and we… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other solutions. We automatically went with CyberArk.

What is most valuable?

I love the ability to customize the passwords: the forbidden characters, the length of the password, the number of capital, lowercase, and special characters. You can customize the password so that it tailor fits, for example, mainframes… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It increases the security posture across the entire enterprise because it's not only helping to secure those infrastructure accounts but it's also helping to secure our user accounts as well. It requires a lot more auditing and monitoring… more»

What needs improvement?

We had an issue with the Copy feature. Of course when we do the password rotation we restrict users' ability to show a copy of their passwords for some cases, and in other cases they actually need that ability, but we would prefer them to… more»

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

I have had experience with CA PAM. That's the only other password vaulting technology that I've used so far. I've used SailPoint IdentityIQ, but that's not really password vaulting. Apparently, there is a partnership growing that allows you… more»

What other advice do I have?

Do your research. That would be my biggest advice. CyberArk is a great tool. However, it is not the only tool that does what it does and, in some cases, for a lot of people, other passport vaulting tools are more toward what they would need… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are its simplicity and the ease of implementation. When you think about privileged access management and the complexity of solving privileged access for those system… more»

How has it helped my organization?

From an industry perspective, you continue to see the headlines in the media about how bad actors have been able to take advantage of weak policies and security controls around access management… more»

What needs improvement?

CyberArk has captured the individual privileged access space well. They've captured the application-to-application and DEVOPS space quite well.. They should continue to invest in optimizing the… more»

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

Privileged Access Management is a business transformation program. It forces business to look at their overall operating model for system administrative and application based access, and develop a… more»

What other advice do I have?

CyberArk continues to innovate, as they refine strategies based on industry research and trends in the cyber security landscape, and incorporate the necessary updates to both their roadmaps as well as… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I've spent some time with BeyondTrust. I've spent some time with Centrify. I've had their products in for different instances and different purposes. They play an interesting concentric role in some… more»

What is most valuable?

PSM has been one of the most valuable features. We started on this journey a while back. Initially, when we did not have PSM, we started with AIM and that was our first use case. But an audit came along and we had to go towards something a… more»

How has it helped my organization?

An example of one of the ways CyberArk has benefited our company is one of the simplest. And this one is something that a lot of companies struggle with: domain administrators and server administrators. These are among the top accounts that… more»

What needs improvement?

We work with CyberArk's customer success team and we work with its engineering team back in Israel. We've been doing things on CyberArk which a lot of its customers, we know, have not been doing. The one place where we found that this… more»

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

We did not use a different product. We had an in-built vaulting system for managing our own credentials. We've been a CyberArk customer for a while. We had the document vault. Privileged Access had just come out and CyberArk was one of the… more»

What other advice do I have?

We use the solution with AWS. In fact, we set up a custom setup for AWS. We worked with the CyberArk engineering team to get it working, to come up with a custom solution to integrate our AWS EC2 instances. There were some limitations, as I… more»

What is most valuable?

* I love the interface because it is colorful, easy to read, easy to see, and how easy it is to make policies. * I love how we can make a policy that affects everybody instantly, which is great. * I… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We are stripping administrative rights, and we have implemented a special ID to help folks that lose administrative rights. Maybe it broke something, so while we design policies and try to get them… more»

What needs improvement?

I want some of the things which are glitching out there for me to be fixed. I have heard that there is something in the works, that they will be putting a feature in the help desk where they will have… more»

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

We did not have a previous solution, because we have always had admin rights. In fact, we did a proof of concept in CyberArk, version 1. We needed something to manage the endpoint and to be able to… more»

What other advice do I have?

Get on implementing it today. Be patient. Test a lot. Deploy slowly. It has places to go. I see the potential. It is getting there, but it has room to grow. If you compare this product with anything… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Avecto was the competitor. They integrated with McAfee ePO, which was our endpoint solution at the time. Unfortunately, it was not as robust as I thought it would be. I didn't like it. I felt like the… more»

What is most valuable?

Right off the bat, the most valuable feature is the DNA scan. It gives us the ability to scan our environment and find the accounts that we're going to need to take under control. We're quite new with… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We're a small IT shop of a few hundred people and the company has only a couple of thousand employees. We had some SharePoint workflows that people had used to get access via submitting a ticket. We… more»

What needs improvement?

We're pretty excited about Alero, the third-party access management. As a small company we lean on vendors quite a bit and we do that in multiple areas. That's going to be a big one for us. It's just… more»

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

We had no PAM program when I came to this company.

What other advice do I have?

I'd never ever rate anything a 10. I'd probably never rate anything a one. I'd rate CyberArk as 7.5 out of 10. We actually did surveys of all the people that saw all the demos of all the new solutions… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

In a previous life, I worked with TPAM, Quest products, and Safeguard. We evaluated five different toolsets when it came to my new role here — all the major players. The last two were Quest and… more»

What is most valuable?

Number one would be the company, CyberArk, itself. The support, the ongoing assistance that is there, the ongoing ideas that are out there from champions, and from the other community forums that are out there, is just phenomenal.

How has it helped my organization?

Because we now have the ability to grant access to management utilities like DNS Manager, Sequel Studio, and MMC, in a secure fashion, without system admins being required to continually reenter various passwords that are stored who knows where, it has really made the system admin's job much easier… more»

What needs improvement?

My list of enhancement requests on the portal is quite extensive. My goal as a system administrator is to enable people to do their jobs more easily, more efficiently. So, I'm looking for ways to enable people to leverage the security posture in CyberArk, and still be able to do their jobs. Better… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to a colleague would be: First, don't allow the security team to be the driving force. It has to be the server team that implements it, that is the driving force behind it, and the for that reason is there is always animosity between the people who are there to enforce security and the… more»
