Recommended Password Storage Solutions
KeePass is great little program for managing personal passwords, and LastPass works great to manage passwords for teams. They are completely different from each other, and KeePass does have a slight learning curve to it, while being more geared towards people that want to have an offline password storage system. Comparatively, LastPass integrates well with your browser, provides user/team-based permissions to password sets, and has a user-friendly interface. We have experience with both of these options. However, we do prefer KeePass. The best part is, both of these solutions are FREE!
