PAM

Thycotic has made managing service accounts and admin account so much easier. I can reset passwords in seconds. I can audit activity in who is using these accounts.

Pros

The importing of the account is simple and I like the history of the password. I can roll back the password in seconds. And importing different domain account works.

Cons

The training could be updated to match the new GUI interface and be interactive. It's very dry and while the videos are short, they seem longer due to no interactive learning.

Revolutionizes the way you think about privileged access

With that many serevrs and systems owned, and with Secret Server capabilities, this allow to stop worrying about dependencies and password lifecycle management. It does the job - and lets you to get in when you need it.

Pros

We started by looking for a replacement product to password vault that we used as a team; we hoped to find a product that would provide more flexibility, universal access, auditing and role-based access. With Thycotic Secret Server we have found a comprehensive, all-in one system to maintain, provide, rotate and synchronize passwords across our versatile set of resources. It sports a great integration support with browsers and a tailored integrated putty (no more remote management solutions needed!) and provides a lot of flexibility including APIs that made our CI/CD pipelines happy. Oh, and a nice mobile app, too.

Cons

It has a remarkable learning curve, and also still not all integrations are available (eg cannot update passwords stored in config files or registry).

Reasons for Choosing Secret Server Password Manager

Most mature product at a competitive pricing.

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.

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.

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.

Amazing Password Storage Tool

Overall, Thycotic's Secret Server is a solid product, and one I would definitely recommend that anyone in the market for a password management tool at least take a look at for consideration.

Pros

This tool is very easy to use and has a Chrome Extension that makes it even more amazing. I really like the password generation tool, as well. You can setup templates and integrate with AD to determine who is allowed to view which groups of secrets based on their OU.

Cons

While I do like this product better than other password management tools I have used, it is certainly not the cheapest option out there. Also, there is no readily available warnings for when you are about to hit your licensing limits for number of secrets stored.

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.

Easy to user interface - Secure storage for passwords

Pros

This ease of use for this software is great. We deployed it into our environment and users of all technical abilities have been able to utilize it. The ability to share secure passwords across teams is a handy feature as well. As admins, we share admin passwords for our Xerox machines, or other admin passwords that are needed throughout our daily work that need to be securely stored. There is also a feature to create complex passwords, which provides auto-generated passwords that can be as complex as you want.
