Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The API is fine and works well.""All our workloads are running on AWS, so integration with our workload is much easier on AWS Secrets Manager than going with another solution such as Thycotic."

"Number one is the password vault; it's very good. Number two, they have a feature for remote desktops that are created on a per session basis, which is very good for security.""Delinea's network integration is the most useful. For example, I use a Check Point firewall connect to SmartConsole, so I need to do a lot of configuration in Delinea Secret Server. Native integration with Check Point is valuable. You can also go download whatever API you need from the cloud, whether you're using Check Point, Palo Alto, etc. Enriched discovery is another good feature. If you are dealing with several kinds of systems, you can see which system requires privileged access to my network.""I have found the password management and the secret management features to be the most valuable. Our customers find its ease of integration and the use of power shells really attractive.""The privileged access management, which is the Safe Access Model is the most valuable feature.""It is able to manage storage and use of personal passwords.""I like that it is Windows-based. It is good that primarily, it is not an appliance. Some of the other applications in the space, such as a Quest Software CPAM or a Safeguard, are appliances, so you can't deploy the ends of them. With Thycotic, you can either install your Temporal Protection module physically in the VM host, or you can use BouncyCastle for high-security module capabilities.""The surveillance is most valuable.""The secret template, password rotation, and recording sessions are the most valuable."

"We occasionally have problems with rate limits, although that is a problem more generally with AWS.""If you don't have enterprise support, then you will not be able to get through to them to get the help. It is not only applicable to AWS Secrets Manager. It is also applicable to any service on AWS."

More AWS Secrets Manager Cons →

"I formerly used only one service: the remote server. For example, I connected to the Active Directory user and the computer's console. But now, I need to do a remote connection to the domain controller. Maybe it only connects to that tool, the Active Directory users, and the computer management console, but not to the domain controller. Another thing Delinea could add is multi-factor authentication.""I think that the main interface should integrate better with non-standard applications and clients, to connect with other systems.""We always ask for partner enablement, which is more like a soft requirement rather than a product requirement. It would be great if they can provide us deeper knowledge of their products for integration.""This product is excellent in every way except minor details in handling extremely large environments.""The UI needs improvement because the interface is a little clumsy.""It is expensive compared to other solutions in this category and for what it does.""They could improve the container platform and SPO.""The initial setup and deployment can be cumbersome. It's not an easy process."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The pricing is standard in this business and we have no complaints about it."
  • "Its price is okay. We don't compete on pricing. We seldom use price to win over our competitors. We prefer it this way because if we can sustain the price, we make more margin as well. We don't want the price to go down to the bottom where despite the win, there's no margin at all."
  • "Secret Server is expensive when compared to the cost to some alternatives."
  • "There are different plans and additional licensing costs that can be instituted for add-ons."
  • "There is an annual license fee per user and the price is fair."
