My Bank is currently looking at PAM Solutions.

Kindly advise on the top 5 solutions within the industry that can be looked at. We would like to engage from the OEM point of view to have a POC carried out before we make any commercial engagement.

I'd say that everything depends on your detailed requirements. I can tell that I know many customers who selected One Identity because it was ideal for their needs. Here is what they valued most:

1. Ease of deployment. After several months of piloting competitive solutions, One Identity pilot was started within 1 week (in basic scenarios that can be started within 2 days).

2. No need to deploy agents on servers. That is really important for critical infrastructure.

3. No need to change tools on the client's side. Admins really like it. They are not forced to use some inconvenient tools.

4. Scalability: I'd say that there is no company whose needs cannot be covered by this solution.

If you value the same things than have a look at One Identity.

I would advise choosing among Gartner MQ Leaders. You are a Bank so the solution should be robust. According to the latest Gartner PAM MQ the leader are CyberArk, Centrify, Beyond Trust, Thycotic. If you need 5 options, take a look at One Identity.

FUDO was excluded by Gartner from the latest PAM MQ.

One identity

These are the big players. While they can all do PAM, things you should consider in making a choice include have a success criteria, what you want to achieve, cost, ease of implementation and management, scalability, etc. 

Go for the features you need and fits your requirement and not nice to have.

What answer will you give for such question: 'what is the best car?'

Is it 'Ferrari, Bugatti, Aston Martin' or "BMW, Mercedes, Audi' or 'Jeep, Toyota, Mitsubishi'?

Give us more info and we will be able to give better advice.

I'd say that if session management is important for you than One Identity should definitely in the list.

And please don't make your choice based on marketing. Test in your infrastructure and you will definitely see the difference.
