Management dashboard - You should be able to see a real-time snapshot
of administrative passwords and privileged account usage. The dashboard should
display your compliance with policies, usage status and, of course, anomalous
Hard Coded Passwords - Many scripts contain hard coded passwords that
are not secured and contain the password in plain text. You need a component
in the password management system that will solve this problem and will integrate
easily with your application server.
Distributed architecture - You probably have more than two network
areas, so your password management system should have centralized management
with the ability to change passwords on a distributed network.
