Cyberark
The system is great for enterprise or larger IT departments or teams where temporary or full access may be given using privileged IDs. Requirements for needing local admin access is also eliminated which can help with specific Windows workstation related tasks. It can be very useful when working with remote teams or contractors who may need temporary access to a system when required.

Pros
Cyberark
  • Automatically discover new servers on the network and take control of the local admin password by vaulting it and ensuring nobody knows the password. A different password on every server.
  • Automatically roll the password in a configurable manner - after each use, after a certain period of time, etc.
  • Track and govern sensitive account usage by ensuring only properly authorized users can access the vault and obtain the credentials and then monitor usage.

Cons
Cyberark
  • GUI - right now everything is on one page/dashboard. Some level of folder/Safe type view would be great
  • More options when storing passwords - especially for network based passwords
  • Better integrations with vendors like Cisco so that admins dont need to really get the password from the vault (think Last Pass type add on)

It is known as one of the safest products in the market. It has good support and is also available as on-premise. You can run it virtually on VMWare (and probably on other hypervisors as well). You can have a second instance on bare metal and that makes it a very safe system.
