Compare centralized control to easily-copied password files
Secret Server password management software can be installed on a single server on your network. The application uses a centralized Microsoft SQL Server database which supports mirroring and access control that can scale from hundreds to thousands of users.
By comparison KeePass creates ‘safes’ which are encrypted files saved directly on disk. These safes can be easily copied to a USB disk, or around the network, which makes it impossible to control sharing of your passwords. It is especially difficult to assess vulnerabilities when an employee leaves.
Secret Server integrates with Active Directory
Granular permissions can be assigned in Secret Server based on roles and users/groups within Active Directory. Role based access control makes it very easy to provision access to passwords when a new administrator needs access to systems. KeePass is not capable of integration with Active Directory, or granular access control.
Why is Secret Server a perfect KeePass alternative for enterprise password management?
