I looked at it a while back and for the price they were asking for, it
didn't seem well worth it. I guess it comes down to need. If you have
funky off the wall applications that need to be run as administrator to
run, update etc, then it's the perfect tool for elevating privileges.
But it's a real niche product and sometimes you can accomplish the same
thing by messing with the ACL's for the program's file group and add the
domain users group to full control on the entire folder group. That's
how we worked around having to give admin access to all our users.


But the company seems good and tech support was very helpful when I was
testing it out.

Subject: [gptalk] BeyondTrust Privilege Manager


Is anyone out there currently using BeyondTrust(r) Privilege Manager in
their Group Policy environment? If so, what are your thoughts about it?
What I've seen and heard looks pretty cool, but I am interested in some
real-world feedback on how effective it really is.


Any help is greatly appreciated.
