Security and automation are imperative if you want to succeed in today’s online marketplace. Everyday at Seller Labs we’re working on dozens of different projects. But our workload is more manageable and smoother because all of our admin passwords are tightly held inside LastPass. So long are the days of writing every password down, or saving them on a file that’s shared amongst employees. This program is an excellent team password manager, giving employees access to the sites that are pertinent to them. This post isn’t meant to be a sales pitch. But, rather, we like sharing information, ideas and best practices that make our business more efficient and hopefully do that same for yours.
Here are 6 reasons why LastPass needs to be your team’s password manager
If you’re undecided if you should use this service for your organization, or for yourself even, then let me explain a few of the benefits.
1. You can save all of your admin passwords so any authorized employees can login to applications or programs without giving them the login credentials
This is extremely important if you’re developing software or using programs with large data sets. This feature gives employees access without giving them the actual credentials. The program creates unique credentials to each user so you can keep the actual account information private. And best of all, you can monitor who is accessing certain programs and at what times they are doing so.
The best part of this feature is if you have employees working from remote locations. Everyone is on the same level regardless of their location.
2. Different departments have access to passwords that only pertain to them
The program stores login information inside folders and allows you to set parameters to decide who can access what. This makes it easy to grant access to programs and sites for different teams, and it keeps information within the groups that need it.
3. An employee’s personal passwords can be stored without the rest of the organization having access to them
This feature allows an employee to keep personal credentials within their account, also known as “My LastPass Vault”, so it’s not shared with other teams and people. This is especially handy if you use your work computer for personal use, too. You may want to access your company’s sales information and your bank account on the same computer but not make it public for everyone to see. This is all possible and secure using the program.
4. Login in once and you have access to everything you need
You only need one email and password to access all of your sites and accounts. Simply download the extension on your browser of choice when you set up an account. Login, then as you visit sites you’ll be prompted to remember the site, forget it or ask at another time.
5. It will create secure passwords for you
Stumped on creating the perfect password? The program will create secure passwords for you automatically and then save them in your vault. This option is preferred if you’re on a premium planso your information syncs across all of your devices.
6. Autofill profiles
Filling out forms with your personal information can get annoying real quick. Within the program you can create multiple profiles. This feature is especially useful if you want to store your personal credit card information and your work credit card information and not get them mixed up. The program will prompt you with which profile you’d like to use and then you’re set. It’s really that easy.
If you’re tired of guessing your password each time you have to login and need to share credentials with multiple teams and people, then LastPass is an obvious solution to this problem. The program shines when used in organizations–and its multiple team password management capabilities is a must for employees who work remotely. And with the ever-increasing need for stringent online security, you can’t beat the usability and convenience of LastPass.
