Brazilian Company senhasegura, privileged access management (PAM) platform, has just received the Gartner Peer Insights “Customers’ Choice” seal for Privileged Access Management (PAM), awarded to products that have been appointed by their own customers and users with the best ratings, in free choice with the curatorship of Gartner. In this 2021 edition, the Privileged Access Management (PAM) senhasegura solution is one of only two that have been recognized in this category worldwide.
The senhasegura solution has reached a 97% positive recommendation rate among its customers, “a highly significant brand”, according to an assessment by Marcus Scharra, CEO of MT4 Tecnologia, developer of senhasegura, which received a score of 4.7 (out of 5.0) in the category Evaluation & Contracting; a 4.5 score for the capacity of Integration & Deployment; and a 4.8 score for Service & Support.

Gartner Peer Insights “Voice of the Customer” is a report that synthesizes the analysis of the insights from IT decision-makers from the perspective of customers and from a deep questioning about the benefits that technological solutions analyzed in different categories deliver to organizations. For the “Customers’ Choice” classification, customer reviews and specialized research are considered to complement the study. Only global PAM providers were selected to participate in the study, senhasegura being one of them.
Among the main factors that motivated the decision to choose senhasegura, according to the Gartner study, customers mentioned a series of things related to the use of the tool, the total cost of applications, its financial and organizational viability, in addition to service and support offered. The main reviews from customers who participated in the study can be found here.
The senhasegura platform offers a series of advanced features to control access privileges to applications and complex IT environments based on credentials in network assets, servers, balancers, databases, among others. It offers PKI and approval environment features via approval workflow, double custody, or through the session started directly on the solution console, without the need to display the password. Privileged access policies must be the most efficient to meet data protection demands, with emphasis on compliance with the requirements imposed by laws such as the Brazilian LGPD and the European GDPR.
