Web-based access versus Windows client
Unlike KeePass which creates “safes”, (encrypted files saved directly on disk), Secret Server is a web-based application installed on your network. It can be accessed via any platform. The four major web browsers – Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome – are fully supported.
Secret Server has native apps for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry. These mobile apps can be installed on a Smartphone and configured for a Secret Server installation in minutes.
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:
- 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.
