Overall Satisfaction with 1Password

We use 1Password as a central password management utility across different departments. We keep all of our vaults synced up so that when someone needs to change a password it's nearly instantly available to all users in the company. Further, whenever we need to update all passwords it's centralized and easy to manage. Before doing this we found some employees were simply keeping a spreadsheet or post-it notes on their desks! Now we use saved passwords that are much harder to break.
  • Vault management
  • Elegant UI
  • Maybe a free version so that more people can try it.
  • Positive ROI on saving time and headache on password management.
  • We no longer have to coordinate password resets.
We tried LastPass and Keypass. The thing is though, 1Password has a nice UI/UX and is very polished. Further, it has a nice mobile app which makes it very consistent for users to use. Keypass and LastPass are great solutions too, but they just didn't fit us as well as 1Password. I still use Keypass for other projects because it's free. But you get what you pay for so if you don't mind a rougher UI then it can work for you. 1Password, on the other hand, is very refined.
I have not had to use support. I will say though we get regular software updates and they go very smoothly. They are constantly improving the software and encouraging the best use.

Yes

Did implementation of 1Password go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy 1Password again?

Yes

1Password is well suited for personal use as well as business use. For businesses, it's great because you can keep ensuring password formulas are enforced, create shared vaults, sync changes across vaults as well as create vaults for different levels of security. Overall, it really fosters a more secure environment because users don't mind using it.

Using 1Password

20 - Everything from daily operations to engineering.
3 - Daily operations but more so engineering minded.
  • Password management
  • Secure password policy
  • Syncing vaults
  • Access to particular vaults by department
  • Store more than passwords in the vaults
  • Offer the service for personal use
It's work for years and seems like it will continue to do so.

Evaluating 1Password and Competitors

Yes - We used to use Keypass, and some users used spreadsheets for passwords. We now have everyone using 1Password as it was very easy to adopt.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
It had to be very easy to use as people are creatures of habit. If we can't get them to use new software then it fails on day one. 1Password has a nice UI/UX so it worked out.
I wouldn't change anything. We tried it out and it worked great.
