Use the tool, but communicate with your user base. If you're not going to communicate with your user base, then you're dead in the water already. Don't force this on someone. Work with them in order to use it. The product has delivered innovation with each update. When I first started, we weren't able to run scans and pull service-account information and reset those service accounts at any endpoint. That, as a whole, as I mentioned earlier, was my favorite feature of the product. That innovation alone is probably one of my favorites, and definitely something that deserves praise. I would rate the product a nine because nobody gets a 10. It's been a fantastic product and it's been easy to use. The training courses involved have been great, so I would rate it a nine. I wouldn't say CyberArk has been a huge impact on my career, but it's definitely played a role in helping me advance, in terms of being able to communicate with clients, utilizing my skill sets, both the technical and soft-skill use. It's allowed me to really branch out and see my growth through business liaison.

My advice would be to compare with other products and if they don't want such a large solution they could try Fudo or a similar solution that is easier and can scale like CyberArk. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I have learned that the deployment can be tricky. Always plan your deployment in phases. Don't unload all of your privilege credentials at once, otherwise, you have an issue with the passwords. Always, have help available on standby when you are deploying this solution to prevent issues. This solution is quite efficient. You don't always have to have your applications. If you are encrypting the server, you don't need the applications. You are required to do it on your workstation. The server will deliver that to you from the managing pack when you try to implement the sessions. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

You have to analyze the target hosts that you have in your organization and understand what is the scope of your project. You have to make a very clear plan for the project and CyberArk infrastructure sizing. Then you have to do a very good job with the project management and collaborate with the privileged accounts stakeholders. With all that in mind, you can go ahead with CyberArk. Be careful with the configuration. When you make changes and so on, be very careful to understand what you are doing. Plan and test what you are doing in a test environment before switching to production. I would rate CyberArk as nine out of ten. Ten means that it's the best solution on the market and no one else compares to it. However, before giving them a ten, they should do something related to the Password Vault utility. Maybe they should add some other features too. For me, it is one of the best tools on the market, so nine is enough for now.

We use the on-premises deployment model. In terms of advice, I'd suggest others follow the implementation carefully. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. It's not easy to install and it's got too many components which means it's not really suitable for small or medium-sized businesses.

I would rate this solution a 9.5 out of ten. To get it to a ten it should give other possibilities to select if you could follow the keystrokes. It should have a flexibility with things in which people can use it a lot faster.
