What is most valuable?

* The overall secrets management * The ability to control access by groups * Sharing secrets

How has it helped my organization?

It reduces the risk of secrets being stored in insecure locations, and enables us to share, control, and rotate the secrets. It has also helped to increase staff productivity. It has saved a few… more»

What needs improvement?

One of the things that we want is to be able to do some of the management of it using APIs. Also, their release schedule is slower than I would like. A better release cadence, more frequent releases… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

The biggest challenge with this solution is the usability. You should have your end customers try out different things, find out which product they prefer, and pick that. I would rate the product at… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I don't remember specific ones off top of my head, but there were definitely other vendors on the shortlist.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the random changing of passwords.

How has it helped my organization?

We use it to search for service accounts across the network. It has significantly helped with staff productivity because it's a less manual process now. Our security… more»

What needs improvement?

We could definitely use some help with API tokenization. If we had a way to store tokens that would be fabulous.

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

It isn't terribly expensive.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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.

What other advice do I have?

Just get it. It works well. I would rate this solution at nine out of ten. It does everything we knew it would, but it would be nice if they added some additional… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

CyberArk was on our shortlist.

What is most valuable?

The ability to give some groups access to different kinds of databases with the storage of a password is the most valuable feature.

How has it helped my organization?

Before this solution, people had their own passwords stored in different areas and when something was needed we could not find the right person that had the right password, which meant quite a lot in migrations scenarios. With this solution, everyone knew what tools to use and where to put the… more»

What needs improvement?

I don't know what kind of a cryptographic it uses to encrypt the password but it should be one of the stronger ones. Some of the cryptos have been accessed by hackers. The encryption algorithm that they use is weak and could be hacked.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a nine out of ten. It provides most of the features we need. I like the way that you could easily administer who would get access to what kind of a database.

What is most valuable?

The features that we have found the most valuable are: * Automatic password rotation to manage the security keys. * Alerting of abnormal use of credentials. * Dramatically improving our security posture. * Facilitating compliance with our safety standards. * Multiple layers of security and access management for IT admins, robust segregation of role-based duties, and military-grade AES 256 bit… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has increased security when working with privileged accounts and automates changes to their passwords. Detailed logging of privileged account activity.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the shadowing of ongoing terminal sessions (Remote Desktop Mirroring). Recording of keyboards in the current Remote Desktop session would be a helpful feature.
