Thycotic Secret Server Previous Solutions

Tor Nordhagen
Executive Director at Semaphore
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 is only because the Healthcare environment is so large. Healthcare has 55,000 network elements and 15,000 servers. One of the few things that CyberArk does better than Thycotic is to more neatly group IT assets in smaller bundles using a 'safe' that could be assigned to groups or teams for access. By comparison, Thycotic — at least in the versions leading up to the competition — lists all the assets at one time, no matter how many there are. When there are lists which are 15,000 elements long, it is harder to locate items and divvy up the work. So it was some slight usability things like this that really made the difference in the outcome of our comparison. While this organizational feature in Thycotic was not so good, some other parts of the user interface that are included in it are really fabulous. Thycotic is more intuitive and it is more logical in many ways than CyberArk. So I really like the Thycotic product. But for this very large environment, it turned just to be slightly less applicable to our situation than its competition. As I probably indicate from my answer, if it was not for the fact that we did a formal comparison and scoring of the products — following the objective measures that we have to follow when we buy things in the public — we probably would have done well just keeping Thycotic. But when you follow the Government process and the idea is to be absolutely impartial, then the way the scoring is set up is the way it goes. View full review »

We didn't previously use a different solution. This is my first foray into PRAM management and enterprise solutions. View full review »

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 move. View full review »

We used a version that was offline but we wanted something that is centrally managed. That was the reason for the switch, if I remember correctly. There is a need, in general, for organizations to have a solution like this and we chose this vendor. View full review »

We didn't use anything previously, we just knew we needed a vault. We went with Thycotic based on ease of use and we thought their feature set was a little more robust. View full review »
