Password management for groups

  • 1.  Password management for groups

    Posted 09-10-2018 11:03

    I am wondering if anyone has experience using a password manager for teams/groups, such as LastPass Teams (or any competitors out there), to securely store passwords that are shared among team members.  Any positive or negative feedback is welcome.  If you use a different strategy to accomplish the same goal and are willing to share, please do.

    Thanks in advance,

    You might want to check out Thycotic Secret Server, there are free and commercial versions available. The commercial version is available on-premises or cloud based.

    We are using RoboForm which has a lot of great tools for managing group passwords. The ability to setup RDP access for a tech and they never see the password is great. You can also "devolve" control to a Dept manager/head tech so departments can manager their own password sets

    Check out 1Password Teams, the ease of management of swapping and security are great.  The downside is the lack of SAML integration prevents largescale deployments.
