BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access

The Password Manager function is the main area that this solution provides tremendous benefit for me. It allows me to manage multiple passwords for different applications in a single sign-on environment.

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

BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access

  • The menu system is a bit dated.
  • Sometimes the application takes a little longer than expected to load.
  • It has a somewhat clunky interface and some areas can accidentally be clicked causing issues due to no pop-up warning.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.
