I just wrote a review a few months back of Cyberark:
It has a summary of the starting prices of all four, but it's really
hard to compare since they each license differently and will vary
greatly depending on your usage.
The real value of a product like this is the way it can automatically
change passwords behind the scenes for you. Otherwise, it's just a
glorified encrypted file store holding only text files.
If you're going to take advantage of that functionality, the cost is
probably justified (since the big four below are the only ones I know of
that claim to do that piece too).
