Expert Insights Verdict on Thycotic Secret Server

Thycotic Secret Server is a popular choice for customers looking for business password management. The secure vault contains ‘secrets’ according to Thycotic, rather than just passwords, as it can also keep sensitive data safe and encrypted. This makes it a good solution for security. There are very useful admin console features, and this service has a focus on account management and privileges, allowing admins to delegate and revoke access with granular policies. There are also reporting and auditing functions, although some of these are confined to the premium product. The end user experience does not rival that of companies who also operate in the consumer market but are secure options which still offer all the expected features such as password auto-fill. The UI is not as popular among customers however, and the service may be slightly more complex to use for less technical users.

Thycotic Secure Server is very much aimed at larger organisations, who are looking for great controls on role based access and security policies. If this matches your criteria, we’d recommend shortlisting Thycotic.
