"The most valuable feature is session monitoring.""The GUI interface is well-designed and user-friendly.""I find it really easy and computer confident, and the experience with the product is really good. Additionally, customizations are easy.""What I like best about this product is the interface.""I like the one-way hash, as well as the ability to store it in the cloud and access it from anywhere.""I have found the password management and the secret management features to be the most valuable. Our customers find its ease of integration and the use of power shells really attractive.""I like that it is Windows-based. It is good that primarily, it is not an appliance. Some of the other applications in the space, such as a Quest Software CPAM or a Safeguard, are appliances, so you can't deploy the ends of them. With Thycotic, you can either install your Temporal Protection module physically in the VM host, or you can use BouncyCastle for high-security module capabilities.""The surveillance is most valuable."

"It's a pretty technical solution. It's designed for more technical people."

More ManageEngine Password Manager Pro Cons →

"Having more detailed reporting would improve this solution.""When working with larger enterprises Thycotic Secret Server becomes a little cumbersome to work with because they do not allow as much flexibility as some of the other competitors, such as CyberArk. Thycotic Secret Server could improve by being more flexible when it comes to customization, and increase the number of API integrations.""There could be tweaks here and there. For example, instead of going to one main function to do this and another main function to do that, the solution could remap the user interface so that a person only has to go through one function. The way that function branches off should make a bit more sense.""We always ask for partner enablement, which is more like a soft requirement rather than a product requirement. It would be great if they can provide us deeper knowledge of their products for integration.""One thing that I wish they would do is to have a Kubernetes or container-based deployment supported, but they're not quite there yet. Containerization or support for containerization would be fantastic.""The initial setup and deployment can be cumbersome. It's not an easy process.""In terms of what could be improved, the whole thing with distributed engines, et cetera, is a little bit tricky.""Improvements are needed in session management, behavioral analytics, and the reporting segment."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The price of this solution is good."
  • "The pricing is standard in this business and we have no complaints about it."
  • "Its price is okay. We don't compete on pricing. We seldom use price to win over our competitors. We prefer it this way because if we can sustain the price, we make more margin as well. We don't want the price to go down to the bottom where despite the win, there's no margin at all."
  • "Secret Server is expensive when compared to the cost to some alternatives."
  • "There are different plans and additional licensing costs that can be instituted for add-ons."
  • "There is an annual license fee per user and the price is fair."
