  • It’s a feature-rich product: a suite of very powerful tools with a lot of functionalities once you get the knack of them.”

Sachin Loothra

Q: “Where do you see Room for Improvement in Quest One Identity Manager?”

A: “There is a need to improve the use case documentation and coding templates. This product has some limitations when it comes to use case documentation. Generally, when we have any different scenario, we need to post in the blog and only then we will get answers.”


BeyondTrust PowerBroker

Q: “Which Improvements Has BeyondTrust PowerBroker Brought to your Organization?”

A: “Previously, all users were in the administrator group of their machines. Since PowerBroker elevates the user, we can remove the users from the administrator group. Thus, the machines become less vulnerable to attacks.”

Gaurav Demiwal

CA Privileged Access Manager

Q: “What are CA Privileged Access Manager’s Most Valuable Features?”

A: “The most valuable feature is the general concept of securing privileged passwords. Having worked in IT for a long time, I know how privileged passwords can float around. They pass from person to person and don’t get changed when they should be changed, such as when someone key who knows them leaves the organization. So, I appreciate the value of locking all that down.”


Q: “Where do you see Room for Improvement in CA Privileged Access Manager?”

A: “The demonstration and consideration portion does not work the best. It’s not that intuitive. To define how it should work and what systems should be involved, requires extensive training to understand how to configure the setup. It is not immediately obvious to do this.”
