1Password

Literally every human being in every single situation can use 1Password. It's well suited just for your average person who has too many passwords to manage mentally - name me one (non Ted Kaczynski type) who doesn't experience this issue daily. It's also well suited for teams as I mentioned in my previous comment in terms of collaboration.

Secret Server

You can easily grant access to external consultants and record every session. High security solution for your most important password. Helps to optimize and automate the password change process.

Pros

  • Integrates with every browser I use seamlessly. It works flawlessly in Safari, Firefox, and Chrome. It can also sync between computers easily using dropbox or other similar applications
  • It is lightweight and does not have a huge memory footprint
  • It is extremely responsive to password / log in inputs in ways that other, free applications like LastPass or OnePass absolutely are not
  • Quick and easy installation.
  • All features for PAM in one product.
  • Modern and intuitive UI.
  • Functions can be extended by license.

Cons

  • The price is relatively exorbitant for your average user. I confess that I am using it based on a free license I got from working at Apple several years back; even loving this software as much as I do, $50 for a single license is a steep ask, especially in today's world of free applications
  • The interface has not been updated in quite a while. Not that it is bad, per se, and is very utilitarian, but a small facelift would be nice
  • You have to work with it regularly to find the right menu, because of the high functionality.

Alternatives Considered

There are a number of alternatives. In particular, I believe LastPass is its closest competitor, then you also have the built in browser password savers. Those are not, to me, a viable alternative, however, because they are not easy to port between machines (mobile or desktop). LastPass is a good product, especially for free, but it just feels ineffably *janky* compared to 1Password. Like, it will interrupt you and ask to save your log in when you're just filling out a basic, non-login form. It feels like a javascript applet compared to a native application like 1Password.
Heavily to install and you need far more features than a vault.

Return on Investment

  • We have been able to save at least 50% more time when setting up new users or removing users from our setup. Previously we had to log in and change passwords manually which took a lot of time and was not secure. 1Password has made this process easier for us and thus made us more efficient
  • In terms of workflow, our teams are now able to share and have access to information quickly as they can accept or request password access from administrators and continue their work.
  • Admins can work much more faster with the one-click-session-launcher.
  • They don´t need to know an admin password.
