Overall features and performance

The ManageEngine has both Windows and Linux versions of the server. The web interface is well organized and quite familiar if you have used any other Manage Enigne’s products. Administrators can easily verify that who is accessing and what; using the logs generated by the software. Including this, it also can record video of all the remote sessions and store them for any future verification or knowledge process.

The administrators only can create and own all passwords by default. Users can’t access them until and unless the admin shares the password with them. The owner of the resource can decide that what level of access can be granted to view, modify, or manage resources given to the another user. The users can be granted different roles to access different levels of access to the system and passwords in the system. There are four types of users that software creates:

  1. Administrators
  2. Password Administrators
  3. Password Users
  4. Password Auditors

Note: Any administrator can be made as “Super Administrator” with the privilege to view and manage all resources.

ManageEngine provides free technical support during the product evaluation. After evaluation, the phone and email support become a part of the annual subscription cost. Customers also have access to a large support portal on the web which includes a knowledge base and user forum.

The Management of the Password and the automated reset option of ManageEngine Password Manager Pro make your data more secure as compared to the regular IT security services. The Password Pro is a complete password management solution that not only stores them but also reset in all resources as soon as the password is updated. The software supports Windows or Linux devices, it also has a wide range of systems support from SQL, Oracle to HP network products.

Admin can also get info about- how the created password is being used, how many has been expired, the password that doesn’t match the password complexity policies, and which passwords are rarely used.

Besides all these, there are lots of other features that Password Manager Pro can provide. The software is best in its class and performed well in every aspect. Moreover, the price of the Password Manager Pro is affordable and value for money.
