As the news cycle reminds us daily, there are many known risks with using weak passwords but nonetheless, passwords remain the most common method of user authentication. Keeper Password Manager was included in Forrester’s report on EPM titled Best Practices: Selecting, Deploying, And Managing Enterprise Password Managers. This report offers practical guidance and recommendations that security and IT pros can use to keep password costs down and security risks in check while maximizing employee productivity.
For most businesses, large and small, passwords remain an integral part of employee authentication. The report recommends that EPM’s be a critical component of every company’s Identity Access Management (IAM) strategy. If your team and company already employ several best practices, EPM’s can supplement and bridge the gap between two-factor authentication (2FA) and single sign-on (SSO) solutions that many companies are already using. An all-encompassing EPM helps deal with high support costs, increased security risks for legacy applications, the rising number of insider attacks, lost end-user productivity and high compliance costs due to poor password hygiene.
