Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"What I like best about this product is the interface.""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.""One valuable feature is that it will support a dedicated database. Delinea provides multiple features, like reporting and remote password changes.""It is able to manage storage and use of personal passwords.""The surveillance is most valuable.""I like the one-way hash, as well as the ability to store it in the cloud and access it from anywhere.""Technical support is pretty good."

"It's easy to use and easy to configure.""Comprehensive coverage of the required features for the PAM solution."

More Symantec Privileged Access Manager Pros →

"Support could be better. I have heard about a lot of problems in the Bangladesh market. People are saying that there are support issues. So, Delinea should focus on support and services.""The initial setup and deployment can be cumbersome. It's not an easy process.""Improvements are needed in session management, behavioral analytics, and the reporting segment.""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.""One thing that I wish they would do is to have a Kubernetes or container-based deployment supported, but they're not quite there yet. Containerization or support for containerization would be fantastic.""I think that the main interface should integrate better with non-standard applications and clients, to connect with other systems.""The UI needs improvement because the interface is a little clumsy.""Although the password policy was interesting, the default setting was inadequate."

"The response time for support could be faster. Some features should be added: cloud-based, VPN-less, more secure, and it should be adjusted in a hybrid environment.""The management console could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "It is very expensive, and its price should be lower."
  • "Pricing is comparable to competing products."
  • "When comparing the price of Thycotic Secret Server with other solutions it is reasonable."

  • "The version we are using is affordable compared to BeyondTrust, which is maybe three to four times as expensive, but it depends on the features."
