Password Manager: A Bedrock of Network Security

Eighty percent of data breaches begin with reused, weak or stolen passwords. With cyberattacks on small businesses radically increasing, there is no better time to add an enterprise-level company password manager. This software maintains all your passwords in one highly secure, encrypted location. Employees only have to log-in to the password manager and the app seamlessly applies the correct password for each site visited. Your team no longer needs to remember or keep track of all their passwords. The software allows them to use long, strong, unique passwords for each login they access, and update them easily. Training is included at no additional charge with the purchase and installation of our password manager.

Reducing risk to company data and maintaining control over network access are the primary benefits of a password manager.

Another benefit is the ability for you to share new passwords across specific teams or remove access when an employee leaves. Here are the benefits of a password manager:

How to Use a Password Manager: Best Practices for Overall Security

Employees are one of the biggest attack surfaces on your network – so it’s essential to give them the tools they need to defend themselves and your company files. We suggest that the use of a password manager is a mandatory condition of employment for all personnel that access your computer network. This security policy is vital for employees that access the network remotely or from their own devices, which can introduce additional cyber risks to your network and data security. Employee security training gives your company other benefits, including:
