Likelihood to Recommend

1Password

1Password should be used to store any information securely, including logins/passwords, credit card and bank information, drivers licenses, software licenses, notes and documents, and many other things. You shouldn't really use the same password for multiple sites, and 1Password is great for generating random passwords, storing them, and making them easy to retrieve. The group plans work great for sharing information between people as well. It really works best on a Mac. I've used 1Password on Windows a bit, and it works just fine, but it doesn't seem to work as well as on the Mac.

HyperSocket is very well suited if the resources and budget are made available. There is not much a learning curve for the IT Department or for those users already familiar with two-factor authentication. There will be some education and training requirements for most end-users as the notifications and general verbiage can be confusing for some. It may also show some exploits within some end-users who are unaware of a notification but will use the email to reset an expired password without thinking twice if it may have been a phishing email or the opposite where an end-user deletes or ignores the expiration email notification expecting it to be spam/phishing.

  • Centralized identity management was a key feature for an on-premise password manager especially now that many systems are segregated, regardless of how integrated an ecosystem may be with Secure LDAP, Single Sign-on or multi-app software (for example, Atlassian Suite). There are many that are free but becomes a task to manage. Hands down, the best feature.
  • Mobile functionality was also key, it allowed remote users to access self-service functionality or manage their passwords through their mobile device which extended their ability to work if a workstation became unavailable, at a meeting, while also implementing into the DRP and BCP.
  • Self-Service password management meets the standards, especially with a self-hosted solution. Cloud-based solutions are equally as susceptible to attacks as an on-premise solution and most stakeholders prefer the latter.

Cons

1Password

  • The automatic name generation for a saved login is sometimes redundant, if the site's title is improperly written
  • Sometimes random logins pop up and I have to choose manually, which is tedious sometimes.
  • I would love to be able to pin or star frequently used logins, when I have multiple logins to a site.

  • Help-Desk functionality similar to OneIdentity Self-Service Password Manager, as it provides additional users that do not require administrative access to assist with managing end-users who may have locked themselves out of HyperSocket Access Manager by forgetting their own security questions.
  • Too many features which become unusable and feel like the payment plans are not flexible since it's an all-in-one product with one price. It is not necessarily a bad thing as most subscription-based pricing forces a buyer to pay more for an integral service that is only available on the highest price-plan. You really do get what you pay for, but we found many of our use-case scenarios limited the product.
  • This isn't necessarily against the product, just a personal opinion around Multi-Factor authentication which is always primarily driven mobile devices. Not all companies or end-users have access to a multi-factor device, (or in our case, are allowed to have access to a cell phone while servicing members/clients). This creates a shortfall to allow multi-factor functionality to extend to all users unless there are hardware tokens, which can be miss placed or left out more easily as most users don't treat it the same way they would their personal smartphone.

Usability

1Password

Based on 1 answer
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 haven't had a lot of issues with 1Password in the past, but I have browsed the 1Password support forums a bit when I have needed an answer for something. The support staff seems to be very responsive. They seem to respond to pretty much everything posted in the support forums.

Alternatives Considered

1Password

I haven't used any other password solutions. 1Password was recommended to me by a colleague, with whom I was sharing credentials, so that's the one I went with. I've been using it now for about 3 years, and though I periodically have some issues with usability, it's still more effective than manually saving & attempting to secure client credentials. I've considered other solutions like LastPass, especially as they seem to have a lot of integrations with other apps that I use, but my main barrier to switching is that I don't want to have to transfer data, set up a new platform, and add/train my team. Plus, I share credentials via 1Password with several clients and family members, so changing at this point would not be very feasible.

One Identity is a great self-service password management system, however, it is limited to just that. As it stacks against the competition, Hypersocket isn't modular, it's an all-in-one which most other systems aren't. One Identity is what we use today for self-service, and migrated to KeePass for users centralized password manager. This probably wasn't the best move but this was all driven by cost and budgetary constraints.

Return on Investment

1Password

  • Simplified management & sharing processes, saves time
  • Reduced stress by having a secure platform to save credentials
  • Increased overall password security through the use of complex passwords
  • The guest feature hasn't been as useful given the structure of our vaults, so new contractors are typically added as paid members, which can add up (especially since the membership is billed annually)

  • As with any IT Service or Solution, the investment will always be seen as a sunk cost. The only ROI would be the time and resources spent elsewhere rather than with Password Management through an IT Department or similar department. I found that the time spent on password management was about the same, as many users who are frequently forgetting a password are also forgetting their security question & answers.
  • There are some positives, as it was able to help manage the bulk of their non-windows passwords or passwords related to another online service. The centralized password manager doesn't feel like a true single sign-on but for most users, it replaces a hand-written copy they have taped to a monitor.
  • It can help with automating some of the active directory workflows with its own user provisioning functionality. Took more time to set up than it was to manage on its own.
