Why are passwords so critical for all businesses?

For a long time, it has been recommended that we all use very long, unique, and complex passwords for every login we use – be it the accounting system, a supplier portal, or simply our personal Facebook account. However, as mere humans, it has clearly become an impossible task!

It is fair to say that you probably recognise that you have a problem with password “hygiene” because it is more convenient to have one or two passwords that you use for everything, and therefore, you are leaving yourself (and the business) vulnerable to being hacked.

In many cases, your password is the only thing keeping the bad guys out. A password manager helps to solve both the security and productivity issues that we have.

A password manager allows users to generate long, complex passwords without having to remember them. The passwords are stored in a secure vault and will be filled automatically when you land on a specific web page with a single click of a button. We can have all of your users and their passwords stored in their own vault and ready to use in 30 seconds.

If you use Two Factor Authentication (which is highly recommended) for security and compliance reasons, you are probably tired of receiving a code from your phone via text message every time you need to login to a given portal. Our recommended password manager can also relieve you of this burden without jeopardising your security in any way.

As a business owner, one of your biggest risks is your employees! When employees leave the company, what happens to sensitive information such as passwords? Will they always be as accommodating as you would like? A password manager allows you to take immediate control of a user’s business vault and either transfer it to a new user still within the organisation or simply block access to internal systems for the employee who has left.

To summarise, a password manager is now a must and will provide you with:

• Security

• Compliance

• Increased Productivity

• Control
