Why You Need a Password Manager

If you're tech-savvy enough to have a personal password manager on your own computer, you know why a company would want a password manager for their corporate teams. Passwords are often a point of confusion among business people; namely, why do we need so many? With work teams, this becomes compounded.

With the engineering team, for example, each individual could share a Google doc or Google sheet, only to accidentally or inadvertently share it with a non-team member or even someone outside the company. Worse yet, someone from the Accounting Department could use an easily guessable password, leaving your company vulnerable to external and internal threats.

TeamPassword allows businesses to create passwords and restrict them to only the people needing access to distinct applications and systems. This makes sharing information easier, controllable, and—with two-factor authentication and AES 256 bit encryption—as secure as is technologically possible.

What is Password Guessing

You would hope that every individual in your company would use a password manager, and every password they use would be 32 characters in length. But the world of passwords is not perfect, as we often find out the hard way. For example: recently, a hack of software company SolarWinds has been prominent in the news. Hackers used some very sophisticated techniques, and one not so sophisticated: password guessing.

What is password guessing? Just as the name implies. Employees who use easy-to-remember passwords also often use the same password for multiple applications. If a hacker guesses the password they can gain access to your account. The risk of peoples personal devices being compromised is higher, now that 70 percent of employees use their own devices for business. Although it is convenient and cost-effective, the "Bring-Your-Own-Device" model does not promote access to or control over employees’ password choices. This could be problematic and dangerous for the enterprise. 

How Does a Password Manager for Teams Work?

For customers of TeamPassword, team members receive an invitation through an email link, and their passwords are stored in a secure cloud. You can give them access to only the applications and systems for which they are approved, and you can turn off access at any time. The administrator will also receive alerts whenever there is activity in the password manager environment so that they can monitor logins and access. All activity is logged, so the administrator has transparency into what’s happening at all times.

It's easy to generate a unique password for every login, and there is no need to remember multiple passwords. The user only needs to remember the master password.
