Do your passwords meet current security recommendations?
Take a quick quiz to find out:
1) Am I using a different password for every hosted application and website I login to?
2) Are all of my passwords at least 14 characters long?
3) Do all of my passwords contain at least one capital letter, one number and one special character?
If you answered “No” to any of these, you are at risk of a security breach.
Think of it like this — When you use one password, or a combination of similar passwords, for everything you access it is like possessing a master key that unlocks every door in your life. You would not rely on a single key to open the doors in your home, car, office, post office box, and safety deposit box. The same goes for your electronic life. In 2016, 62% of data theft victims were small to mid-sized businesses, 40% of these breaches were caused by external intrusions. Reusing a password, or using similar passwords, increases your risk of becoming part of these statistics.
How are you going to remember multiple passwords that meet the security standards? How can you be certain your end users have unique, strong, passwords for all of their hosted applications and websites without losing their minds?
The answer – a password vault. Password vaults store user names and passwords for each website. The vault encrypts each users password database with a master password, making the master password the only one you need to remember! Business grade solutions even push website login information to your end users without them ever having to know the passwords.
