Re: Password Manager Software recommendations

Based on your requirements, I can say that Password Safe is the
closest thing you will find.

Easy to use
Easy to deploy (place on network share, thumb drive etc.)
Not sure of the encryption scheme????
I am sure it will be supported for the next few years or so
Yes has multiple platform support (win32 being the primary)

My users work with a fair number of systems and application which require unique log in credentials. As a result, I am actively looking for a password manager to help secure and organize these credentials for my end-users.

Having spent some time researching available commercial options, I have found basically two types of products:

Enterprise level products that are primarily single sign-on solutions--which are not feasible in my environment; or

Home user products that are basically all in one Internet security products--which are not suitable for my environment.

I am familiar with a few open source projects; however, there is a preference on the part of management to deploy a commercially supported/maintained solution; however, open source is not entirely out of the question (I really do not wish to start a debate on open vs. closed source security products).

The basic general requirements are:

Easy to use for most non-technical end-users
Small resource footprint
Easy to deploy
Use of AES, Two-fish, and/or Blowfish algorithms
Product must be actively supported/maintained for the foreseeable future (I am aware of the problems with this type of requirement)
Suitable for business/enterprise (MS Windows) environments

I'd appreciate some feedback/recommendations from those admins who have traveled down this path before.
