Overall Satisfaction with ManageEngine Password Manager Pro

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).
  • We needed a tool to replace an in-house tool. This took care of that need.
  • This was absolutely the most cost effective tool for enterprise password management.
  • Managing more than a few thousand accounts may require a more robust tool.
The bigger apps come as part of a suite of tools. To get all the functionality you want, you will have features you won't use. As you scale up across large teams, massive amounts of accounts to manage, or an array of vendors to support you need to graduate to a more robust tool.
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.
