LastPass

LastPass is a consumer product that's also fine for business use. You can set it up according to the level of risk you're comfortable with, from simply locally caching the master password to two-factor authentication. It's free for the desktop version and $1 a month for the premium service, which includes virtually all mobile platforms--even WebOS--and two-factor authentication. The only downside is its password recovery option of pinging back to a designated recovery computer to create a one-time password. You could compromise your information if you enable account recovery on a laptop that becomes lost or stolen.
