Pros: - Lots of possibilities and integrations
- Reporting and monitoring
- Password heartbeat
- Mobile app (with possibility to download a local copy of the secrets)

Cons: - Currently, 2-factor authentication relies on external parties for which a subscription is needed. It would be nice if they could offer free methods as well (captcha, mail, ...)
- There used to be a Java-based application to get a local copy of the secrets in a computer, but they replaced it with a Chrome add-on which is pretty slow and easy to manage.

Overall: We're using this tool for 4 years now in the business and are very happy with the possibilities of the tool. It's easy to manage and get reports based on activity which is very useful. It seamlessly integrates with AD for SSO authentication and 2-factor authentication is possible as well. A nice feature to have would be a captcha or SMS message for 2-factor authentication, but this has not been implemented (yet?).

Pros: Highly secure. Easy to use interface. Reliable, consistent, and priced right.

Cons: They could probably work a bit on their integration with other environments. They do well with Linux/Unix, but not so well with browser passwords.

Overall: We use both the on-premise and cloud Secret Server product to manage all of our passwords. It's one of the best and most secure products out there! There are advantages and disadvantages to both, but either one is an excellent product.

Recommendations to other buyers: Test it, try it, you'll like it.

Pros: Extremely easy password management. Setting permissions for various users is easy (after learning how). I can view reports of what users have viewed when they leave the company. Support is responsive and they've even implemented one of my suggestions.

Cons: There were a few hiccups with permissions when setting up the software. A quickstart document could have helped me avoid those minor delays.

Overall: I have no reservations about recommending this password manager. It's a huge time saver.

Pros: Simple install. Easy to use interface. These guys have thought of everything - the system is clearly based on feedback over the years and it shows. Request approval for access, templating, automatic password changes on the network, AD integration, even finding where our service accounts are used.

Cons: I wish it supported more password change platforms - currently it supports AD, Windows, SQL, oracle,, and *NIX. I wish it also handled network devices for auto password changing ... hopefully soon.

Overall: Simple system to manage all our shared accounts. Couldn't live without it.

Yes - we will definitely be adding support for additional password platforms in the future. 7.0 will ship with Sybase support and MySQL support is coming soon. Also Cisco device support should be soon after.
