One password portal to rule them all

Pros

Secret server is the best password site to be used between users. With the ability to sort clients, types of secrets, generate passwords, link directly to logins, copy and paste passwords, and obfuscation of passwords, the list honestly goes on. You can be scheduled to be notified if someone accesses a certain password, or if someone needs to get a password they don’t normally have access to. There is a free version that I use at home to store all my passwords so that my wife has access, should she need them.

Cons

The ability to make custom secrets is severely missed.

Very secure and useful tool

We're using this tool for 4 years now in the business and are very happy with the possibilities of the tool. It's easy to manage and get reports based on activity which is very useful. It seamlessly integrates with AD for SSO authentication and 2-factor authentication is possible as well. A nice feature to have would be a captcha or SMS message for 2-factor authentication, but this has not been implemented (yet?).

Pros

- Lots of possibilities and integrations - Reporting and monitoring - Password heartbeat - Mobile app (with possibility to download a local copy of the secrets)

Cons

- Currently, 2-factor authentication relies on external parties for which a subscription is needed. It would be nice if they could offer free methods as well (captcha, mail, ...) - There used to be a Java-based application to get a local copy of the secrets in a computer, but they replaced it with a Chrome add-on which is pretty slow and easy to manage.

Gets the job done.

Pros

This software is pretty straight forward and without frills. It gets the job done and doesn't get too much in the way with flashy or over the top functionality.

Cons

I wish they could keep the unnecessary functions down but give the interface a face lift. It's straight out of windows 95.

Full-Featured Password Management Solution; Relatively Easy To Use

Secret Server provides a great way for us to store, manage, and provide access to passwords within our organization. Passwords stored range anywhere from company social accounts to AD service accounts used by IT/Engineering teams. I like that the software can be integrated into AD in order to manage access by group. It's also nice that the super admin cannot view all passwords in the software: they have the ability to add/remove users, but the access to the passwords themselves are separately managed.

Pros

I think the AD integration is the most important feature for us. It allows us to use our AD credentials when logging so we don't have to remember a separate set of credentials to get to all of our other credentials. It also allows for AD group management of access to our specific password folders within Secret Server.

Cons

We don't fully utilize all of the extended features, so the cost of the product is becoming a bit steep for us. We were able to negotiate good pricing when we had more users utilizing the software, but now that our team is much smaller now, our licensing is set to go up. That being said, the licensing cost is the worst part for our company as it is set to double at our upcoming renewal.

Enterprise Password Management

Coming from previous password solutions like KeePass make this an attractive product although it is expensive it offers many security minded features but like many products, its strength lies in the hands organizational or departmental leadership. For passwords that must be group shared, the tool is useful.

Pros

Functional password manager with features that allow users to share and update passwords without risking the compromise of authentication information. Allows for auditing and history to ensure that trust is maintained.

Cons

Too easy for someone to use master admin and access information that is not needed. Organizational policies and manager preferences can make this tool difficult to trust by users. Browser interface can be clunky and difficult to navigate. If you have multiple groups using the product, extra thought needs to be given to how data will be shared and organized.
