ManageEngine Password Manager Pro

It's great for any company that relies on active-directory as their primary source of user password authentication and other data. It's ability to integrate with a host of other tools such as Google Workspace, Azure AD (if you aren't using ADFS/DirSync/etc.), FreshService, Trello, etc. as well local apps like Postgres, i/AS400, and more make it a great middleware tool for SS.

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.

Pros

ManageEngine Password Manager Pro

  • PMP is great for sorting passwords into different groups depending on the category of application access. This makes it easy to find the password that you are looking for.
  • Application credentials can easily be saved to the clipboard to make it easier to copy and paste them into the appropriate log in screen.
  • Different types of credentials for the same application can be stored next to each other and are easy to distinguish by the icon next to the name. For example, SSH credentials, web credentials, and local root credentials are all easy to sort under one application group.

  • Allows monitoring and recording of remote sessions.
  • Available for on-premise and cloud.

Cons

ManageEngine Password Manager Pro

  • There is no flexibility in how accounts are grouped.
  • The implementation of lowest privilege means you cannot use groups for assigning role based security. If you give a team read access, and a limited subset of the team write access, the read access supersedes write.
  • Some versions have been fragile. There have been times where the server has stopped working and needed a restart daily/weekly. Read the issues resolved in updates. There have been some critical failures in security over the years (i.e. unauthorized access possible by URL manipulation).

  • 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

ManageEngine Password Manager Pro

We evaluated one on-premise solution, Password Manager Pro, one cloud-based solution called Passwordstate to store all sensitive password information and also secure notes. The latter was licensed by users, so we knew as the team grew it would cost quite a lot more to maintain. We wanted access for various users within the information technology and systems department at a granular level to have separation of the various passwords into categories which we then give permission relevant for the right users.

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.
