Admin rights can be granted and revoked within minutes and that is what everything comes down to, for us
The most important factor is the ability to invoke least privilege, which is required under 27701 and GDPR. We have used the solution to remove users' administrative rights and instead provide on-demand, token-based administrative rights. The latter is an option for a single, temporary increase in privileges for a trusted user for a specific time. We use it in a medical environment for HIPAA compliance or medical compliance in a GDPR case. For example, if you have a clinician who needs access to a specific piece of medical information, or if there is an administrator who needs to have administrator rights to a particular database for a limited period of time, we can give it and then revoke it. That's another reason the tool is useful. Also, the fact that we are able to add events straight from event logs and/or the database is important for crisis management and rapid reaction. This ability helps us meet our SLA requirements. In addition, we can elevate approved applications and actions without broad administrative rights. We can temporarily increase privilege based on tasks. If someone puts in a ticket, we increase their privilege for that ticket. We then watch to see if that ticket has been resolved and then we decrease it. Another feature of the platform is instant risk reduction solutions. We can do a risk metric with it, and we do that as part of our risk evaluation. We can increase and decrease privilege and we can actually show that in the ISO 13485 risk metric. And it provides a single solution for managing endpoint security preferences. It does a good job of that.

Pricing and Cost Advice

"It was very expensive."
"PowerBroker for a Mac client is three times the price of the Windows version."
"What BeyondTrust was providing was user-based licensing which was a great benefit from the client point of view. Recently, I don't know why, the licensing model has been changed, and that is the reason that they have lost a bit of their edge when it comes to the PAM, against our competition. The asset-based licensing, from the user's point of view, is not beneficial. The licensing should be based on the users. The greater the number of users, the greater will be the load and the greater the scalability problems. I presume that is why the licensing model has changed."
"The solution's pricing is high."
"The product’s licensing is different for Windows, Linux, and Mac. The tool’s licensing is yearly."
"On a scale from one to ten, where one is cheap and ten is expensive, I rate the solution's pricing a seven out of ten."
"It is relatively more cost-effective compared to the competing product."
"Price-wise, it is very competitive. In our area, government entities and banks don't go for the monthly payment. It is a headache even for us in terms of finance and procurement to go for monthly payments. Quarterly might be more logical and reasonable, but the minimum that we go for is one year, and sometimes, we even try to compile and give one offering for three years."
