Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis.

There are two ways that you can license the Identity Manager and you can choose the one that works best for you. You can pay on a monthly basis, which is called VCPP (VMware Cloud Provider Program), or you can buy a perpetual license that you pay for only once. When it comes to usage licensing, you can pay for concurrent usage, pay on a per-user basis, or pay on a per-device basis. We pay approximately $6.50 per user for the standard version. If you are paying for an enterprise license that includes VDI then it will cost approximately $25 per user on a monthly basis. In addition to the standard licensing fees, you need some kind of database that you need a separate license for. Also, if you are using the cloud-based deployment then you will have to license a connector.

The price is high. Also, the infrastructure requirements are huge. We're looking at three locations then I'm also looking at connectivity in between locations and then I'm also looking at the application.

I am the CEO of our company and we implemented VMware to help our users when they go to different source applications. We wanted that to be easier for them.

As a cybersecurity professional, I would NEVER outsource a PAM solution anywhere outside of my company, no matter how beneficiary it could look at a first sight. In the end, it can cost you everything.

Oftentimes, they also believe that privileged access management (PAM) and privileged account management (also PAM) are interchangeable terms – which is not entirely true. To shed some light on this topic, in...
