Overall Satisfaction with CyberArk Privileged Account Security

CyberArk is a great means to access and securely store passwords for a remote support team or third-party vendors. The version control and access controls help with analyzing who is accessing what and when, while having strong delegation controls. This is particularly helpful with providing access to other users or administrators to systems that may require temporary access or to a vendor to access when troubleshooting.
  • The user interface is intuitive and easy to use.
  • The local server/workstation account management is great with the ability to remove local admin accounts but still leverage admin privileges.
  • Prevents unauthorized access and meets security requirements and allowing for robust and detailed reporting and audit logs.
  • The copy button in a web-browser requires an add-on to the browser. The feature should be included without the add-on.
  • Forced purchase of re-branded dell servers as account vaults is terrible.
  • Reports are ok but requires some expertise to export data into a better reporting DB.
  • The costs to operate are high.
  • Has been very easy to share passwords through a secure means. Valuable when compared to compromised credentials and the risks associated with PR or data breach.
  • There are solutions out there that are more cost effective, but the additional features don't match that of CyberArk.
  • manage engine and pleasant solutions
Manage Engine's Password Management solution can accomplish the same features however, their system is cumbersome and not as user friendly to operate. It is however great for small teams.
Pleasant Solutions Password Manager Pro can accomplish some of the same things, but the web browser interface is not user friendly at all.
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.
