Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Comprehensive coverage of the required features for the PAM solution.""It's easy to use and easy to configure."

More Symantec Privileged Access Manager Pros →

"WALLIX Bastion's most valuable feature is the Access Manager because you can use it and access the data center without any client VPN.""Its video recording capabilities have definitely been key for us.""I like that it's Linux-based, and you don't need to have separate implementations, extra database licenses, or enterprise licenses. I think because it's Linux-based, it's more seamless than Windows. I also like the access manager, which I think is a super tool. Everything is browser-based, and you don't need a VPN. So, that's a great thing."

Cons
"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."

More Symantec Privileged Access Manager Cons →

"It would be better if I could manage multiple accounts in one place, like CyberArk. With WALLIX, you can only manage one account, and you are given a separate category. You have to click on each connection to do anything. For example, CyberArk might give three options for one connection if you want to have an interactive user-level experience. But with WALLIX, you have to click three times to get that access. Also, the biggest disadvantage of WALLIX is the reporting. I feel like it's very weak in reporting when compared to the other solutions. As a solution, they're good and stable. But they need to make their reports neater and better. Right now, we're going to the console and then pressing buttons every single time.""For me, the main issue has to do with the system performance itself.""The performance of WALLIX Bastion's password manager is very low."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
