Q&A Highlights
Question: Which PAM tool do you prefer: CyberArk Privileged Access Manager, One Identity Safeguard, Delinea Secret Server, or BeyondTrust Privileged Remote A
Answer: Based on your extensive list of requirements, CyberArk Privileged Access Manager appears to align well with your needs due to its comprehensive feature set, strong security controls, integration capabilities, and advanced analytics for privileged access. However, it's important to conduct in-depth evaluations, demos, and discussions with each vendor to ensure that the chosen tool meets all your specific needs and integrates seamlessly into your existing infrastructure. However, I recommend visiting the official website of Broadcom (the company that acquired Symantec's enterprise security business) or contacting their sales representatives to get the most up-to-date information about their PAM solutions, including any rebranding or changes that may have occurred. When evaluating any PAM solution, it's essential to consider factors such as security, integration capabilities, ease of use, vendor support, scalability, and alignment with your organization's specific needs and compliance requirements. It's also a good practice to request demonstrations, proofs of concept, and references from vendors to ensure that the solution meets your expectations. Remember to involve key stakeholders, such as IT, security, compliance, and management teams, in the decision-making process to ensure alignment with organizational goals and requirements.
Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a real fortress. Its security is very strong. Multi-factor came as a feature out-of-the-box, which was big for us. That helps us meet another compliance requirement. It enforces encryption. Nobody can see what we are doing in our remote system if they happen to be listening for unencrypted traffic. That is its biggest strength.""The security provided by PRA when it comes to access for remote and privileged users has been outstanding. It has met all of our objectives, everything from password rotation to securing and allowing us to clamp down access to the auditing and monitoring features.""Based on the feedback from my colleagues who have never complained about the technical support, I would say that the product's support team is good.""The scalability is excellent.""The product has improved remote support capabilities since it works fine.""This product is very stable and scalable. This is an excellent platform.""The most valuable feature is that this solution can be implemented regardless of the operating system.""We can truly elevate our admin rights while we're in there to fully take control of a system and manage it as if it was sitting right here on our desk. Most of the organization has gone to remote work or work from home. With that being the case, this solution allows us to be able to still work with our end-users, even though they're not always sitting on our network."

"The customer service and technical support are very good.""I like the discovery functionality and the change password feature through the check-in. I also like the bulk import with the help of templates that come with it out of the box. With the help of these few features, my tasks are made easier.""The extensible framework for authentication is one of the most valuable features. We use an MFA plug-in and a lot of different factors, depending on what the business use-cases are. And of course, the auditing functionality is also valuable.""The technical support is tremendous.""The Transparent Mode is the number one advantage of the product.""I have found the most useful feature of One Identity Safeguard to be Privileged Sessions.""All the features are promising, but we love the reporting feature because we can get each and every report. That's a major compliance requirement. Its reporting is really amazing, and it has made life a lot easier.""The identity discovery is good, and the performance is pretty good value."

"They could probably integrate a wizard or something like that to add a new use case. It could be something that makes it easier to add a new use case.""The solution is very flexible, which is a plus, but I would say the implementation requires someone with knowledge and experience, as it can be easy to get lost in all the details. The implementation process could be streamlined and simplified. Though the complexity of the solution provides greater flexibility, it requires a lot of time to understand it fully.""Multiple areas can be improved. We've seen lots of updates in the past year. They have a portal where we can submit our ideas. BeyondTrust is immediately implementing user suggestions. The UI could be more informative. Initially, there were two or three connectors, and now we have five or six. It would be nice if they added a few more connectors for third-party integration. There are multiple tools, but the clients may require more for their convenience.""Its access process for third-party vendors needs to be simplified.""There is no connectivity to the appliance side. There is no API, and it is just difficult for me to capture what version the device is on without going in and doing screenshots. It is a little too secure in that regard, where they don't even trust their product owner. Since a lot of hacks come from the inside, they are probably doing what they need to do out of necessity. It is just that I have to work pretty hard to produce compliance data on the box.""The price is pretty expensive.""The integration of the solution with many platforms is a difficult area to manage and needs to be made easy.""One of our gaps or pain points is having multi-factor authentication at the endpoint and using the PRA password injection from BeyondTrust, which does not work in our environment. We can only have MFA at the login of BeyondTrust to check out the password. Therefore, we can't meet our security requirements of having it on the endpoint."

More BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access Cons →

"The main thing that needs improvement is the slowness. Apart from that, the change password check-in feature also needs improvement because it is not working perfectly accurately.""The product uses a lot of resources in current sessions.""The high availability function of the box requires a long time to switch over from one appliance to another.""When we compare One Identity Safeguard with Cyberark, we know CyberArk has other tools or other features that are more complex and more useful for the customers. For example, I have one customer that wants to elevate the permission that is available in CyberArk.""For some users, the physical appliance has been a bit buggy.""We can't review or audit HTTP and HTTPS. This functionality should be added so that we can review and audit HTTP and HTTPS.""On a scale of one to ten, the stability is an eight.""We currently have a problem with the Active Directory integrations on Windows. Some of our users need to be logged with Active Directory, but we are having communication issues between One Identity and Active Directory. It seems that Active Directory is not well-integrated."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price is pretty expensive, but you get what you pay for and this is a great product."
  • "I wish it was a little bit cheaper, but when a product is as solid as this, I understand what the cost does. It helps them to make sure it stays that way. If you want a reliable, solid product, you're going to pay more."
  • "Don't get into a situation where you are licensing per desktop or per person until you fully understand the licensing."
  • "My client found the solution a bit expensive but considering their use case and requirements, they didn't have any other choice. As far as I know, implementation and licensing are the only costs."
  • "I wasn't directly involved in the licensing and pricing, but I can say that PRA is licensed per endpoint added to the Vault. I would advise users to take frequent exports of their license usage package; it's a simple feature that provides a spreadsheet of every machine in the Vault. This helps to cut down on duplicate licenses, which can happen by adding the same endpoint using an IP address and a fully qualified domain name, for instance. The implementation is an additional cost, and they offer several tiers, so the price varies. There are also some optional add-ons, so I would advise people to research the product well and find out precisely what they need regarding features. The Advanced Web Access add-on provides some required functionality when interfacing with websites; that's one to consider."
  • "Its price is pretty good for the features and services that it provides. It is not outrageous. I'm not aware of any additional charges or anything like that."
  • "PRA was one of the cheapest solutions that we evaluated."
  • "Though the solution was a bit expensive, the overall pricing was average."
  • More BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Setup cost, pricing and licensing are all very expensive."
  • "Our licensing costs are on a yearly basis."
  • "It was definitely cheaper than the other two products that we evaluated."
  • "They offer a fair price for a robust solution."
  • "The full license is expensive but if you plan to use it in a big organization then it is the best option because it is more flexible."
  • "It is a bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. You don't want to get anything too cheap because then you get cheap stuff and cheap support. That really never helps anybody."
  • "The pricing is about $80,000 per 100 servers. There are few elective costs."
  • "We have a yearly license. The cost depends on how much a company wants to invest in technology. In our organization, we believe in modern digitization and automation processes so we found it affordable. One Identity was not that much less than other solutions and it is not a cheap solution. There were number of cheaper solutions. However, it's the most effective, according to our evaluation."

    Hello Avinash, it all depends on the timeline and urgency of the project. If you need to deploy a PAM tool that focuses on standing privileges, stopping lateral movement, and incorporating Zero Standing Privileges as part of Zero Trust, then please consider looking at Remediant. I've worked for BeyondTrust and have gone up against the other big players such as Delinea, Centrify, CyberArk, and HashiCorp. They more or less all offer similar solutions, but looking at your current requirements, Remediant really excels in delivering a simple, yet very effective tool in a matter of days and weeks, not months and years.
