Overall Satisfaction with BeyondTrust Password Safe, powered by PowerBroker

BeyondTrust password safe is used within the whole organization. The basic utility is to manage privileged credentials throughout the organization. Also, it is used to manage a few applications or define access policies for different users distributed within different workstreams.
It is also responsible for identifying and managing the risks and vulnerabilities associated with different assets managed by BeyondTrust.
  • Privileged Account Management.
  • Vulnerability Management.
  • Session Management.
  • Handling API requests.
  • Identifying and Managing various assets throughout the organization.
  • Dependency on Flash.
  • Securing Files.
  • Managing Service Accounts.
  • Stability of updates.
  • Positive: Easier User Interface.
  • Positive: Descriptive management of access policies.
  • Negative: Issues in functionality due to random bugs in functioning.
CyberArk is following the bottom-up approach for the development of the Privileged Access Management solution, which provides a stable and more featured security solution. But everything for CyberArk comes with a cost.
Meanwhile, everything for BeyondTrust is included in a single product, and Password safe comes up with vast options under a single utility with cost-effective implementation.
BeyondTrust Support is available with maximum priority. The user is not required to provide an explanation and is not charged for the case raised.
If required, BeyondTrust support is available for every possible requirement, which may differ from a requirement of some document or a hotfix availability. Also, BeyondTrust support takes every request with max priority.

BeyondTrust works really well while looking to manage the privileged accounts distributed on various assets utilized in the organization. It is really good at scanning and fetching the asset details, which provides the descriptive details of all possible threat vectors and allowing the administrators to manage and mitigate the risks.
Moreover, BeyondTrust's dependency on Flash is a major demerit which awfully affects the functionality and user experience for BeyondInsight.
