Multi-User Password Management Tool

Secret Server vs. KeePass

Provide users granular access to your passwords with Secret Server

Secret Server provides an individual login for each user. This could be your Active Directory credentials, or RSA tokens (anything RADIUS compatible).

When a user logs into Secret Server they are only able to view or change passwords for which they have been given permission. You can limit access to users in different roles: Windows Server admins, UNIX admins, network admins and DBAs.

By contrast, KeePass is accessed by a single ‘master password’ which provides everyone with full access to view, change and delete passwords.

There is no way to separate permission levels for different users in KeePass. Also, maliciously changing the KeePass ‘master password’ can result in lockout to all passwords unless backup files are kept.

Why is Secret Server a perfect KeePass alternative for enterprise password management?

Have you ever wondered how KeePass compares to Secret Server Password Software?

KeePass is designed for single users; but Secret Server is great for teams too.

KeePass lacks authentication – the master password does not identify users; Secret Server does not have this problem.

KeePass lacks some other essential functionality too:

  • auditing
  • permissions
  • centralized control
  • integration with existing systems for authentication
  • integration with existing systems for automatic password changing

All these factors make KeePass a great tool for an individual but severely lacking for an IT admin team. Secret Server is specifically designed for IT admin teams.
