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.

We found the incorporated system of both AV and Encryption to be an absolute breath of fresh air for us. It is great for small and mid-sized companies. We rolled this out across our 4 global regions. We created region-specific groups for our endpoints and placed the appropriate endpoints into those groups. [Then] we defined policies for AV and Encryption that would be used inter-region and assigned roles to the different regions' support staff. Great stuff.

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.

  • Email encryption, it can encrypt based on the criteria defined. We use regex for this to discover the content.
  • We can have a view of what is the content of the email being quarantined.
  • We use Sophos together with our Email Exchange

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)

Customer support and technical support have always been great when we require assistance. Especially when we come across issues that we're not familiar with.

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.

The only other one we looked at was Symantec endpoint encryption this seemed less feature reach and less user friendly.
