Remediant SecureONE and CyberArk Vault are both Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions. Remediant SecureONE is “agent-less, vault-less, and never shared”, while CyberArk Vault takes a “risk-based approach to credential and session management.” What’s that mean? Remediant is a lower-cost security solution that is easier to implement, while still protecting access to servers and endpoints. CyberArk is better for established enterprises with legacy systems and stringent compliance demands, offering vault session recording, session management, detailed time solutions, and all aspects of Privileged Access Management.
Remediant and CyberArk are both great PAM solutions, and we recommend them to clients every day. In our opinion, the most notable differences are in how each approach implementation and compliance. While both are easy to implement and compliant with GDPR and other compliance measures, their different approaches are tailored to companies of different sizes and structures.
Both Remediant and CyberArk are great solutions. In general, we recommend Remediant or CyberArk based on the type of company implementing the PAM solution.
Remediant SecureONE is an enterprise-ready PAM solution. They call themselves “enterprise-ready” with “Zero-Standing Privilege”, what’s that mean for you? Well, Remediant SecureONE claims that “74% of beached organizations admitted the breach themselves.” So, Remediant not only secures your data from hackers and threats, but monitors accounts that have been given legitimate access. Remediant specializes in identifying legitimate accounts that are acting as a threat. Then, Remediant makes it very easy to remove or suspend the dangerous accounts.
When compliance is a primary concern for our enterprise clients, and we must integrate with legacy systems, then CyberArk is our go-to solution. Yes, CyberArk is a bit complex. And yes, it suffers from a bit of feature bulge. However, CyberArk may do the best job of protecting enterprise corporations from advanced threats. Plus, CyberArk offers a full suite of security tools and seamless integration. And in our opinion, when it comes to compliance, CyberArk is at the top of the list.

Thycotic aims to be a much simpler PAM solution and interface. Thycotic Secret Server is available for both on-prem data centers or cloud data centers. We have implemented Thycotic, and think it’s great. However, we tend to go with Remediant simply because we prefer it, and it has a larger install base.

With Remediant, clients can expect to pay about $22-25/per devices, whereas CyberArk clients can expect to pay $35,000+ for implementation and $100-150,000 annually. Remediant is mainly targeting the small to midsize enterprise. Their pricing is very customer friendly. CyberArk targets mid- to large enterprises, and is priced for premium customers.
The most important factor is experience and effective workflow, whether in-person, on-site, virtual, or off-site. That said, we think working with a PAM consultant near you is an advantage. This will allow your PAM consultant to better communicate with existing IT teams, and better understand your current information architecture. A non-local PAM consultant becomes a good option if they follow security best practices, and have an established virtual workflow. Why? Location is less significant when virtual workforce tools are effectively adopted by consultant and client, whether a small business or global enterprise. Plus, on-site specialists can become costly. Bottomline, look for a PAM consultant who offers an excellent communication process, clear workflow, and custom security solution for your business.
