Sharing Passwords

So what solutions do other IT organizations use out there for sharing passwords for things like service accounts, among an IT organization without simply creating a shared word document that could get copied or leaked, even if file restrictions were in place on it?  

Of particular note are some outsourcing partners that may need access to some passwords, but not all.

Thanks for any ideas!

Depends how large a scale you would want to implement this.  

For service accounts, can probably look at Privileged Access Management Solutions (https://www.gartner.com/reviews/market/PrivilegedAccessManagementSolutions)
For something smaller in scale, maybe Group Managed Service Accounts provided by Microsoft would help in managing passwords for Service accounts.

For document control, you can use Active Directory Rights Management Service

We use 1Password for teams.
Every department has their own Password Vault.
Can create groups of users and assign to vaults.
Each user can have their own personal vault too.

Can access the vaults on Mac/PC,  mobile and web. Has extensions for IE. Chrome and Safari.

It's awesome! I have access to over 1200 password!
