Password Safe is a tool that supports the IT best for the efficient and secure password management. Collecting passwords in Excel spreadsheets, as it had been done before implementing Password Safe, turned out to be a confusing, incomplete, and, above all, a very unsafe option.
The reasons for the change were primarily the consolidation of the various password collections, compliance with ISO27k, the user-friendly interface, and easy handling. The additional features like authentication against Active Directory, user import from AD, and assignment and management of rights make Password Safe an excellent tool that promotes and supports both efficiency and security in the company. Energie Steiermark will continue to rely on the proven system of Password Safe, and recommends this MATESO product to other companies.«
