We use Password Manager Pro (PMP) to store credentials for various applications and services that we in IT use throughout the company. The tool is network accessible through our SSO provider allowing for easy access from anywhere. It solves the business problem of having a central and secure location to store application credentials. Applications can be sorted into groups and those can be set so that only certain individuals have access to the credentials that they need.
- 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.
- PMP can improve on where granular password settings are stored. It difficult in my opinion to locate where the password complexity rules are to be set.
- Integration with SSO providers is not as straightforward as some other applications I've used.
- Access from a mobile device is far from ideal and makes it difficult to access important credentials when away from a desktop or laptop.

PMP is well suited for organizations that have a lot of different applications throughout different departments that all have different credentials. It is also good for setting up sharing so that different users have access to only the passwords that are needed for their work. Users are also able to store their own credentials in this tool without sharing them with any other users. PMP is less appropriate for smaller organizations or ones where only a single department only needs to store passwords. In this case, there are other cheaper and simpler tools more suited for the task.

Using ManageEngine Password Manager Pro (ME PW Pro) has allowed us to consolidate all of our password management into one location and allow for the tracking of all enterprise wide passwords. Using ME PW Pro across the enterprise has increased efficiency and we no longer have the issues of only one person having a password.

ME PM Pro is well suited for larger organizations with multiple users. ME PM Pro would be less suitable for smaller, single individual situations.

ManageEngine Password Manager Pro is widely used to manage all encrypted passwords for all of the IT teams, without having to store the keys on a local PC (even if encrypted and with advanced features like access audit, password complexity generation or periodical password renewal). Additionally, the software aims at suppressing all simple passwords and being compliant with security audits, and making segregations of who has access to which password based on an employee’s profile.
- Keep trace of every password accessed with configurable reports, containing date, authors and actions driven
- Segregation of duties per given employee profile to separate a group of passwords accessed
- Auto generation of complex password with rules you can define
- Periodical regeneration of passwords to be audit compliant
- Segregation of resources and passwords through the admin console
- High level of database encryption
- Light client access through a simple browser / no local storage on pcs even if encrypted
- Simplicity to use
- Affordable at reasonable price, for both acquisition and maintenance
- In some browsers the copy password function does not work well
- The search engine sometimes returns blank results (all browsers included: Chrome, IE11)
- New upgrades are not visible in the tool itself, like in other third party tools

Password Manager Pro (PMP) is particularly well suited if you want to avoid using simple passwords, (stored in clear or encrypted), or avoid local password tools or storing them on a PC via a Windows application that does not answer some questions for a larger scale team size (segregation of profiles, audits, complexity, central storage, encryption, AD integration). PMP helps to manage privileges according to the admin profile to differentiate who has access to which password resources. PMP aims at eliminating procedures or tasks to auto regenerate passwords to be audit or SOX compliant, including proof of evidence.

Password Manger is used as the enterprise password repository for any shared access. Its used primarily within IT, but not exclusively.
- Once we got used to the application specific terminology, the tool is fairly straight forward.
- Has all the basic functionality for password management.
- Its cost effective. For an enterprise tool, it is the lowest cost.
- 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).

If you need to manage passwords for a business but you can't spend $50,000+, this is the tool. At one point they had the tag line "90% of the features for 80% of the cost" (or something close to that). They aren't kidding. You can't beat the price. If you want a highly robust tool that is compatible with a large number of vendors and you are willing to pay $50,000 to $100,000, there are better tools.

It's used globally within our organisation, this product provides us with self-service password resets and account unlock abilities. We chose this product to reduce the number of contacts to our help desk, speed up account management issues and reduce our overall cost of ownership. We have found this product to be simple, effective and reliable in the four years we have been using it.
- Simple integration into AD.
- Really easy to use interface for end users.
- Good management interface and good management reporting.
- Reasonable cost per annum for support and updates.
- Low maintenance, many tasks automated.
- The ability to change non AD passwords is complex and difficult to set up. Maybe this is predictable, but it would be good to have an easier route to make greater use of the product.
- Greater account management from the supplier would be appreciated. Being US-based they tend to leave their UK customers to fend for themselves.

- AD based environments. Medium to large scale users (2000 plus).
- Would be overkill for smaller environments.
- Supports multi lingual users very well.

We store all our local and Internet passwords in ManageEngine Password Manager. It is an invaluable tool.

It's very useful for remote support as you do not need to remember passwords. We can group passwords by team section so they can only see the passwords they need.
