Easier Password Security for Your Business
Remembering passwords for each of your sites has become a nightmare. Most require multi-factor authentication (MFA) or at least an uppercase letter, lowercase letter, symbol and number and have to be at least eight characters long. Trying to remember all those characters for the myriad sites you access is daunting.
The answer to that headache is LastPass, more specifically for your business, LastPass for Business.
How LastPass for Business Works
LastPass is a password manager. It allows you to store hundreds of your passwords without needing to remember them. All you need to remember is ONE password: the one for LastPass. And you can have LastPass available to you on any device anywhere in the world.
With the move of business out of a physical workplace to a remote one, security issues are more difficult to manage. The business version of LastPass provides identity and access management (IAM) to a remote workforce easier by securely connecting employees to their work, all while IT maintains complete control.
Here’s what else it does:
- Manages employee access. Your IT department (even if working remotely) needs to know who is accessing what.
- Enforces MFA across all applications and workstations (remote or not) to maintain security at all times from every access point.
- Allows secure password sharing so teams can share data while IT monitors those passwords to ensure security.
- Disables auto-refill on suspicious sites to prevent phishing attacks, again allowing IT to manage the risks.
Help Employees Securely Save, Remember and Share Passwords
Saving passwords to a browser, Excel file or notebook simply isn’t safe. Neither is sharing them by email or text. A password manager like LastPass helps you prevent employees from taking these risky behaviors by making secure password management just as easy.
Have passwords that multiple people on your team need to use? LastPass for Business allows you to set these up in shared folders and delegate access. LastPass even takes care of one-off password shares with the click of a button. All recipients need to do is log in to LastPass to see the shared credentials.
With the collaboration of LastPass For Business and Aeko, you will have the best security available today.
Your Cyber Security Questions, Answered
LastPass is an online platform for storing and sharing passwords. It saves your company time by auto-filling passwords on websites and apps. Business leaders can see what passwords are being used by their employees through the admin dashboard. Plus, users can be added and deleted from the business directory with the click of a button.
There are four options for businesses:
- MFA: Biometric authentication and contextual policies
- Teams: For small to midsize businesses with fewer than 50 employees
- Enterprise: For large businesses that have more users and need to establish custom policies
- Identity: Biometric intelligence meets contextual intelligence for enterprise business and MFA
LastPass undergoes testing by tens of thousands of leading tech companies. They partner with a bug bounty program to monitor for bugs (they are the first password manager for business to do so). AES-256 encryption and hashing algorithms keep your personal passwords private, even from LastPass.
You can try LastPass free for 14 days. Ongoing plans are billed at a monthly rate per user:
- MFA: $3 per month per user
- Teams: $4 per month per user
- Enterprise: $6 per month per user
- Identity: $8 per month per user
If LastPass ever gets hacked, their system encrypts all of the data that users put into it. LastPass doesn’t have access to your password vaults or master passphrase. The company’s systems are tested by over 40,000 companies annually for any bugs. Their systems are regularly upgraded to prevent a hack in the first place.
The average employee has 200 passwords to keep track of. Each employee has to manage their own set of credentials as well as any that are shared among their team. Stolen passwords give criminals easy access to hack into systems. Your IT department can’t keep login information safe.
Password managers provide a safe platform to store passwords on. They make sharing (and restricting access) easier to manage. With a password manager, you can save time by eliminating lockouts and the need to ask around the office for the right login.
Aeko Technologies proudly uses LastPass and can help get your business started with secure management of credentials.
