Welcome to the Host Logic IT Blog,

Today we will be discussing the importance of managing passwords within your business, the right way.

Whilst all businesses should be running MFA to provide additional protection against a number of threats, the requirement of maintaining good password practise is still important. We are advocates of stacked security and the more you do to raise the quality of each layer of your security the better overall protection you have. Whilst MFA provides a very important last line of defence we would never want an attacker to get that far. We all know banks have a vault but that does not mean they go without security cameras, guards or forget to lock their front doors. Security should always start with the basics.

Let me ask you a few questions:

  • Do you know how strong the passwords used by staff are?

  • How do you deal with shared passwords?

  • Do you know if a staff member has committed a password to memory and what would you do if they leave the business?

If you are unsure about any of the above or answer notepad, sticker notes or document (anything non-encrypted) then there is room for improvement and we can help.

Our sophisticated password management platform will help to:

  • Maintain and report on the strength of all passwords used within your business so you can act to harden you defence

  • Provide secure and dedicated shared password areas that do not require staff to see and therefore learn passwords

  • If a password is viewed it is audited and If a user leaves the business known password are flagged for easy change

These are just a few examples of how password management can benefit business security. Throw away the post it notes, close sticky notes and put your sensitive data into a solution that is safe, encrypted and will make daily use of password easier. Our solution integrates into all modern browsers and has iOS and Android apps, making use simple and raises adoption.
