AWS Secrets Manager

[AWS Secrets Manager] is really good at managing the secrets for each environment (stage, production, ...), and with a simple command, the users will get all the variables for running the project. Depending on the user role, they could just read and/or edit the variables on the Secrets Manager on AWS. This facilitates the management of the secrets.

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

AWS Secrets Manager

  • It could be good if a user can use a variable in the project but can't see them in the manager on AWS
Manuela Jacqueline Mercado Rodríguez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Thycotic Secret Server

  • 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

AWS Secrets Manager

Although we never ended up going with Beyond Trust DevOps Secrets Safe, we did evaluate it as a competitor to AWS [Secrets Manager]. We ultimately decided to go with AWS [Secrets Manager] because of the name "Amazon" and the reliability. Beyond Trust [DevOps Secrets Safe] seemed like a perfectly fine alternative, but in the end, we chose AWS [Secrets Manager].

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.

Thycotic Secret Server

  • 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.
