1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
I've described how I use it to manage confidential client logins for the websites I develop for them. Every site has a myriad of things that need logins - from setting up their domain name and hosting, to building the WordPress site, to getting them set up with email and maintaining their sites. When I need to provide IT support to our staff, I have my phone right there to log in to their computers to address the issues. When I want to order cookies from Amazon or check my home's security camera settings, it's there for personal needs as well. There are sharing features that I haven't explored enough to be comfortable with setting up for staff. They may be just great, but it is a place where I personally don't make use of the program.

Bitium
Best suited for companies that use the same services across multiple teams, services that might require support at one point. For us, it is very easy to share access to either the IT support team or to me, as the Salesforce administrator, and we can easily take care of the issue and then log out without any hassle.

I would not strongly recommend it for single users, who don't need to share access to others.

Pros
1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
  • 1Password's Watchtower service is a real value add - 1Password monitors the security news for evidence of security breaches containing your credentials and alerts you if you have been impacted. That is a huge value as it enables you to get out in front of a security breach and be proactive in protecting yourself.
  • 1Password's core strength is that it makes it easy to practice good security hygiene by using strong, unique passwords for each site you interact with. This is something that all password managers do now, but offering an easy experience is key.
  • 1Password's password sharing features makes it easy to share team credentials with other team members, and to decide who amongst the team gets access to the designated credentials.

  • Sharing access. It's as easy as 1-2-3 with Bitium, no more hassle with sharing the actual password and then changing it, violating company policies, etc.
  • Lots of apps supported. In all three years since we are using Bitium, we haven't encountered any app that would not be supported by it.
  • Easy to set up strong passwords. Another very easy and intuitive feature: when you are setting up an app, you can ask Bitium to generate an A-level password automatically, that you can therefore use with ease.

Cons
1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
  • 1Password is so secure, that it lacks a self-managed "forget your password" functionality which means that as a manager, I have to approve password resets which may slow down some users.
  • On Chrome, the extension sometimes stops working when the browser is updated.

  • Apps crashing. From time to time, some apps stop working in Bitium and they come back only after a while (1, 2, 8 hrs). We don't have a clear explanation for this yet.
  • Very tied to Chrome. Bitium is almost 'married' to Chrome, making it unusable in other browsers, which is sometimes problematic.
  • Sometimes slow Chrome Add-on. From time to time, the add-on seems so unresponsive that it is easier to go to the web dashboard and log in from there in the app you were looking for.

Its simplicity and vast functionality provide a solution to a former pain point for our organization. As long as 1P exists, we'll be customers.

Usability
1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
The 1Password app design is top notch, much better than a couple other password managers I've looked at. The app and service are very flexible, allowing for many different types of data storage. The browser extensions generally work very well, allowing for easy access to login information while using pretty much any modern web browser.

I have never had any issues with 1Password and they have always been able to answer my questions adequately resolve my issues. Furthermore, they have a robust peer forum that can be accessed. They have helpful "Get to know Apps", videos and many articles to assist in the process of using the product.

I don't know any of the software in the list, but normally, I used to save logins in Chrome - whether work or private, in separate accounts of course. Chrome stores information, even credit card info in plain text, that is easy to crack. 1Password is a step up, or even, several steps up from there. The Master key is stored in a Google service though, that 1Password gave me in a pdf format, but I consider that safe

Return on Investment
1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
  • 1Password has empowered me to meet the stringent security demands of my organization without having to resort to complex, time-intensive encryption setups to store all of my various credentials. Instead of wasting time on building, configuring, and maintaining such infrastructure, 1Password manages it for me.
  • 1Password's annual subscription pricing model is reasonable, given a great deal of value, it has provided me, both personally and in my business operations. I don't need to invest capital into secure storage infrastructure to ensure that I always have my credentials at my fingertips, and I prefer to have a dedicated, focused security company own the hardware behind this great service.
  • The fact that I control my 1Password account means that I can get double the use out of it: personal and professional account credentials sit side-by-side in my secure vault. Because I do not need to rely on my internal IT department to provide access, I am confident in storing whatever I need to store.

  • Everyone is now required to have A-level passwords, so the overall level of security has increased a lot.
  • Having a secured way of sharing access to different apps, users are now very open to being helped more hands-on by the support teams, not fearing that their credentials might be exposed or later used.
