IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

One Identity Safeguard Valuable Features

Cody Engelman - PeerSpot reviewer

The password part is the most valuable because we were going to start vaulting certain accounts to get a lot of passwords changed. Historically, we have had really stale passwords on non-human and service accounts. E.g., on one of our service accounts, the password hasn't changed for 17 years. It was not even that complicated or good of a password in the first place. 

This solution has definitely helped us consolidate. It replicates to other appliances, so we're replicating to our DR site. Thus, if anything were to happen to our data center or personnel, whomever was trying to pick up the pieces and try to put the business back together would at least have all the passwords available to them.

The physical appliance form factors are pretty nice. They are definitely Dell inspired and easy to set up with accurate instructions. We have had no problems.

Regarding usability and functionality:

  • It has a nice, clean interface. 
  • It's pretty direct and easy to personalize. 
  • Users can set up favorites on certain things that they request. Very often, they shortcut it. So, it reduces the clicks down to three clicks. 
  • You can have a password for any account. 
  • It's auditable, which makes the security guys' happy.

We use the solution’s Approval Anywhere feature which enables us to add an extra layer of security for critical passwords without adding time-consuming approval processes. In the past, we were having problems when a user went on vacation. There were many recalled cases of password sharing. When we received this type of incidence and started to investigate, we found out the past setup had no solution. For example, if someone with a daily duty went on vacation, they still had to do it within the office. That is why sometimes people tried to justify the sharing of passwords by the importance of their duties. Now, by using this platform, if someone goes on a vacation, out of office, or needs urgent/planned leave, then our setup will select the functions tied to that person and automatically delegate them to the next person. That person can start performing that duty based on their access. No sharing of passwords is required.

The part of this product that I like the most is the transparent mode. That is the number one advantage of the product. I also like the ease-of-use. That is what Quest is known for. The interface is interactive, relatively easy-to-use.  

I like the fact that we are using a proxy server. Also, I like the fact that it is integrated in such a way that I can connect to my Linux and Unix resources using my AD credentials. They map the AD credentials to Linux accounts. So, when I am connected to my AD accounts, it acts as a sort of proxy to convert it to the Unix account that it is configured for. That is quite useful.

The most valuable feature is the logging sessions with their visualization, which is video recording. This functionality allows us to restore the actions of a user in the event of any incidents.

The solution transparently integrates into the infrastructure and users do not notice it. I would give this feature the highest rating.

While the "transparent mode" feature did not affect the monitoring in any way, it led to an increase in the convenience of connecting users.

This solution visualizes RDP sessions and logs SSH sessions.

The most valuable feature is auditing the sessions. All of the sessions (RDP, SSH, Citrix) can be audited and replayed on demand.

Complete indexing on SSH sessions means that all commands are searchable after indexing.

The most interesting thing about this product is it is very easy to implement and configure as well as its usability. Also, for the final user, the work experience doesn't change when using the SPS for the Linux administrator, which is fantastic. You change only a little bit of the connection. Everything else is really easy.

We deployed it into our company for controlling a client's behavior in our data center. It is very useful to control their connections, such as RDP.
