Avatier Identity Anywhere

Avatier is very well suited for large organizations that struggle with Service Desk getting swamped with password resets or unlocks. Giving end users the power to self service their issues is well worth the investment. In my environment, I even created Slackbot responses that triggered the Avatier site when a user said "reset password" or "locked out."

Thycotic Secret Server

Secret Server is really a great solution for any business that needs more than one person to have access to passwords for various devices, systems, and websites. Even an organization with only one person who would need access, if that person was no longer around, a simple change in Active Directory could assign those permissions to their successor. Candidly, the only scenario I can think of where a business might not want Secret Server would be a sole-proprietorship that was unconcerned with succession or security in general. The free version has no cost beyond using a server, and it's pretty low overhead.

Cons

Avatier Identity Anywhere

  • The only issue I have come across is that if a user begins to reset their password, but doesn't remember all of their security questions, sometimes the tool triggers a reset even if they didn't successfully reset themselves. This becomes a problem in an environment that has password complexity requirements, such as not being able to change your password again within a 24 hour period.

  • The sharing functionality NEEDS improvement. We share most passwords at a group level, but then it becomes impossible to share them with a dynamic group and one or two one-off people as well. This is a major shortcoming.
  • I don't love the interface. I feel like there is an attempt at a dashboard, but it is really not effective.
  • I've heard, but never seen, that the software can actually change passwords in the target systems. If this is part of its deliverable, I do not know how to use it, and I don't know how you would do that. Seems like a great feature for password management.

Alternatives Considered

Avatier Identity Anywhere

We use NetIQ DRA, so we looked into Identity Manager as well, but it just didn't have the same kind of integration capabilities and security measures that Avatier provided. Ultimately, after using a trial of Identity Manager, we decided it wasn't going to work and opted for Avatier, as it had a long-standing record for excellence.

KeePass is fine for individual use, but it does not meet the same objectives. There are a lot of products like KeePass that are just not as portable or robust, and do not have the kind of granularity Secret Server has. Being able to assign password permissions based on user roles is huge, especially from a security standpoint.

Return on Investment

Avatier Identity Anywhere

  • The main positive is the number of calls into our help desk or LAN team have gone down to a few calls a week; instead of the masses going to them on a daily basis.

  • Privileged Password Safe. Great for keeping those super important passwords all in one place.
  • The solution has amazing logging reports. As an admin you can see what actions users take, whether they view a secret or display the password.
