Currently, the company I work for has nothing in the way of password management – everything is in a big excel spreadsheet that everyone has access to. Obviously this has a whole rash of issues attached to it, namely:
- Staff have access to passwords they shouldn’t have/don’t need.
- Anyone who can get access to a machine on the network can get full access to all the passwords.
So, I’m pushing for us to move to a new system….however, I don’t have a whole lot of experience in this area, so I don’t know what solution to suggest.
Essentially, I’m looking for some form of password management solution, where administrators can limit individual users to a limited subset of passwords, but while still having all the passwords in one (secure) place.
Assuming it’s some form of server->client solution, it needs to have clients for both OS X and Windows (and ideally Linux, but not essential!)
If anyone has any recommendations, I’d love to hear them!
There are quite a few tools out there that you can take a look at for what you’re requesting:
My company was previously using a homebrewed PHP password manager, but we switched over to a commercial manager. I currently use Lastpass as my current personal password manager, but they also have an enterprise version which you can check out.
