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.

Active Directory

Azure Active Directory is well suited for organizations that have a large number of users/employees in different geographic locations and lots of internal tools, be it hosted locally or in the cloud, as it will make it easier for the organization to do and effective Identity and Access Management. For small companies, this might be expensive.

Cons

1Password

  • The Windows apps and integration aren't as good as on the Mac
  • Occasional glitches with the browser integration
  • Moving away from the one-time app purchase model and toward subscriptions (which is somewhat understandable at this point)

Active Directory

  • Problems when allowing users to change their password using the web interface.
  • Sometimes it's hard to configure the synchronization between the on premises AD and Azure.

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

A chief marketplace competitor to 1Password is LastPass. While it is highly regarded and includes some features that 1Password currently doesn't (such as secure sharing), it fell victim to a substantial security breach in 2015, which has made me loathe to reconsider it.Another well-known password manager is Dashlane, which also provides secure sharing, but falls short of 1Password in that it does not provide application password management.1Password is continuously being improved, and the price I pay annually for a family account is more than fair.

Active Directory

We never evaluate other types of products. Since Windows 2000 we have been using Active Directory for the administration and management of our users, devices, and policies. We could certainly see the advances that are produced version by version and I firmly believe that Azure AD is the correct evolution and the way forward. It simplifies our work and manages our structure efficiently and clearly.

Return on Investment

1Password

  • Time savings - I don't spend much (hardly any, actually) time looking up passwords anymore.
  • Security - A lack of it can be costly for any company, am I right?
  • Mobility - even when working from home, or at a coffee shop, my secure data is always in my pocket. This gives me the flexibility I need to do my job well, even when unforeseen circumstances like the kids getting sick take me away from my primary work environment.

Active Directory

  • We had to either implement Azure AD or duplicate the workload of our IT team, it was a no brainer.
  • Azure AD, at least the version we use, is included with our Office365 licenses, so no additional licensing needed.
