Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One of the most valuable features is that this is a product designed with enterprises in mind.""BeyondTrust Password Safe's features that I have found most valuable are really those that are knitted in. That is their Smart Rules and Smart Groups, where you design your administration model so you create your AD groups and your asset groups, and configure Password Safe.""Session recording, password rotation, and password vaulting are the most valuable features."

More BeyondTrust Password Safe Pros →

"The interface is very simple to navigate.""It can still be configured by a separate team other than developers. That's why I think it's more secure.""The most valuable feature of HashiCorp Vault is that it's an open source solution. Second, it's cloud agnostic, so it's very easy to maintain and control, which is why we prefer HashiCorp.""The solution is stable. It has been working perfectly without any problem.""This solution is easy to use and to integrate."

Cons
"Its documentation can be improved. Its documentation is currently complicated, and it is not good. It needs to be better. Their technical support can also be improved. It is not bad, but it can be better.""I think that BeyondTrust Password Safe could be improved with more testing. In the beginning, they were practically using customers as beta testers. Maybe the product has evolved since I last used it, but if you look at PAM, privileged access management, whatever's out there has already been done. I don't see there being any other enhancements that are being made regarding PAM, except to support more cloud-based applications.""The only negative thing I can say is that BeyondTrust was recently bought by Bomgar and the marriage of the multiple companies coming together in the merger has caused a little bit of a hiccup right now in their software versions."

More BeyondTrust Password Safe Cons →

"The solution could be much easier to implement.""The documentation is very general; it should have more examples and more use cases.""The technical support was hard to get a hold of and lacking in service.""I don't think there are any major improvements required—so far, so good. However, I think that having more training materials, such as videos, and documentation available would be helpful. I would prefer to have more videos available either on the official site or on YouTube.""We could use more documentation, primarily to do with integrations."
