It is used as a privileged account management solution in our organization. It is being deployed to all developers and administrators who have access to our servers. It addresses our security concerns as well as potentially keeping the users from abusing privileges.
  • Password management and Secure access to servers
  • Ability to remotely log a session off
  • Administrators having the capability to view the changes made on a specific server through the recording mechanism
  • Integrates well with any servers both on-prem and on cloud
  • Difficult set-up process. Takes numerous iterations of setting up
  • GUI is not user-friendly. Hard to understand the options available and what they do unless you spend a lot of time working on it
  • Might be expensive depending on the licenses you purchase.
It is an absolute must in all organizations where security is taken seriously. For organizations where there is a tendency among the users' end to abuse access privileges, this tool comes in handy. It has features that would enable the administrator to look through video logs to see what was done by a specific user. Also has the capability to terminate or lock users/ user sessions.

  • Solved our primary goal to rid users of needing local admin
  • Their support have been quite helpful
  • Better communication to customers on new release compatibility
  • Crowd-sourced rule logic for specific applications would be nice (I hear underway)
  • Technical support processes could be a bit improved
Goal of removal of local admin rights will be solved. Initial application rule logic a bit tough to get going, but sales engineering team are very helpful with this. Then, ongoing maintenance, other than worrying about new releases, should go smoothly without adding too much on-site support complexity. Best to keep app rule logic as simple as possible.
