Security simplified!

Less password reset requests, less time spent by technician setting up shortcuts to applications

Pros

We have been using Centrify for quite some time and are very pleased with the product itself. Their support and team of Customer Success Managers are exceptional, always are available and have never gone without resolving an issue. I work for a property management company and to have all of our applications in one place and easily accessible is a huge time saver. Our users have only one user name and password to remember making our helpdesk queue go down by not having all those passwords reset tickets. Can't say enough about Centrify, great product, excellent support!

Cons

Only thing I would suggest is more application in the apps store. I would also suggest more reports available there is a limited amount

Easy To Be Integrated, Can Be Trusted

We replaced a custom solution for PAM with CyberArk to get an easy to mantain and scale solution. CyberArk also provides the possibility to deploy the solution on-premises giving us the confidence we need.

Pros

Easy to use, scale and maintain vs. our old custom in-house solution.

Cons

Difficult to integrate with some of our custom apps, but not an issue in general terms.

Reasons for Choosing Privileged Access Security Solution

A PoC allowed us to verify that it was the best solution for our needs.

Reasons for Switching to Privileged Access Security Solution

Our custom built solution did not adapt well to the new cloud paradigm, and was difficult to maintain.

Major functionality/features work as expected, need improvements in support and documentation.

Pros

Major functionality and features work as expected, which provide our users with robust and secure access to applications.

Cons

1) New feature releases sometimes don't appear to have been vetted for all possible use cases. 2) Documentation is sometimes out of date. 3) Inconsistent level of product knowledge among support team members.

Make privileges Access Management easier with CyberArk

Overall CyberArk is complete and feature rich solution to organizations for privilege access management without hassel and support to achieve most of the compliance requirements.

Pros

CyberArk can cater compliance requirements such as PCI-DSS when it comes to compliances which is major challenge to Payment Card Industry. Automatic credential rotation can be set based on organization policies to reduce the risk of brute force attacks. It support remote administration of all type of operating systems. Tool provides recording of user sessions and auditing logs which is very useful during forensic investigation. It has threat analytics capabilities and can detect suspicious activities of password theft. Multi factor authentication is supported , so increase the security of the privilege user.

Cons

CyberArk is quiet expensive and license model goes per user basis. Solution required set of VM's which don't count for total cost of ownership and deployment is quite complex. For password vault physical servers may recommend and when it comes to high availability and backup several physical servers may required. Continuous session recording required bigger storage. Patch update of password vault is bit complex which require thorough testing with professional support.

Great SSO application

Easy to implement and great SSO solution.

Pros

I love that this application allows all users to have a simplified login method and allows for additional security settings through the MFA for select applications.

Cons

The only thing that i would say about this software that is a negative is that is is decently pricey compared to other solutions. Other than the price the product is phenomenal.

Cyberark PAM

Pros

The product is easy to install and use. it is more user friendly compared to other products. It is easy to identify systems and monitor their status from the interface.

Cons

The screens are sometimes unstable in product version transitions. Sometimes I find it difficult to follow the general situation of the added resources collectively.

Easy, Hassle-Free One-Click Sign In

When we work together, sometimes multiple Reps are using the same PC. Idaptive Services have made it easy to sign someone out and sign ourselves in without worring about going to each individual site/program to do so.

Pros

We have office spaces throughout our 843-acre park. This means we are often in different locations every day, and sometimes even in one single shift. Idaptive makes it easy for us to sign in and out of all the programs we need with just a single click, saving time and energy for a very, very busy Visitors Services department.

Cons

It can sometimes fail without warning, looking like it worked but in fact keeping you signed out of many products and forcing a restart. This is not a common issue.

Easy to setup and use

Able to enforce MFA for users that have access to sensitive data. The MFA is so easy to use that it is not a burden to the end user

Pros

Pre-canned apps for easy setup, also the MFA that shows up on my Apple Watch, super easy. User adoption has not been an issue since it is so easy to use.

Cons

I have no complaints at this time. I have been very happy and any snag that we have encountered was addressed quickly by the support team.

No issues as of yet.

Pros

It is constantly updating to be ready to product our products. Everything has been running smoothly. It has been performing it's function, without us even knowing.

Cons

As previously mentioned, it is a little difficult to initially figure out. So the learning curve is sharp.
