BeyondTrust Password Safe

BeyondTrust works really well while looking to manage the privileged accounts distributed on various assets utilized in the organization. It is really good at scanning and fetching the asset details, which provides the descriptive details of all possible threat vectors and allowing the administrators to manage and mitigate the risks. Moreover, BeyondTrust's dependency on Flash is a major demerit which awfully affects the functionality and user experience for BeyondInsight.

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.

  • 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.

I actually haven't had to work with support. I have spoken to a colleague of mine who has worked with support and has been pleased.

BeyondTrust Password Safe

CyberArk is following the bottom-up approach for the development of the Privileged Access Management solution, which provides a stable and more featured security solution. But everything for CyberArk comes with a cost.Meanwhile, everything for BeyondTrust is included in a single product, and Password safe comes up with vast options under a single utility with cost-effective implementation.

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.
