Managing password storage

By default, the passwords for the accounts you add to the Privileged Access Service are stored securely in a local repository if you are managing the service on your own network or in the Privileged Access Service if you are using the cloud-based service. If you prefer to store them in a key management or hardware security appliance such as an on-site or off-site SafeNet KeySecure appliance, you can configure the Privileged Access Service to store and retrieve account passwords using the supported external appliance.
