  • Recommends complex passwords.
  • Interfaces with our Identity Management software to already know users. No extra passwords needed.
  • Ability to track additional information such as system, resource and even notes on a password.
  • 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 really like that we have Secret Server. It is WAAAAY better than anything else we've used. I do feel like in today's age, there should be a better interface, mobile app, etc. I just don't see that with Secret Server. If it exists, we are not using it. In a smaller company, this interface would probably work out ok. If you have hundreds or thousands of users, the sharing feature will leave something to be desired.

As a distributor, we are using the SecretServer for our demo environment. We are able to share all our logins to websites or servers. In this way, the whole team can use them and work with the product.
  • Quick and easy installation.
  • All features for PAM in one product.
  • Modern and intuitive UI.
  • Functions can be extended by license.
  • You have to work with it regularly to find the right menu, because of the high functionality.
You can easily grant access to external consultants and record every session. High security solution for your most important password. Helps to optimize and automate the password change process.
