LastPass Named “Password Management Solution of the Year” in 2021 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards Program
Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Information Security Products and Companies
LogMeIn, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based solutions such as GoToConnect, GoToMeeting, LastPass and Rescue, announced that LastPass Business has been named the winner of the “Password Management Solution of the Year” award in the fifth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market.
LastPass Business is designed to simplify employee password management while granting Admins actionable oversight. The solution is designed to help employees practice safe password behavior online with LastPass password management and single sign-on that ensures all apps are fully accessible in the LastPass browser extension and password vault to simplify access to key applications.
With LastPass Business, employees now have a seamless login experience whether they’re accessing a traditional web login or an SSO-enabled cloud app. Additionally, the LastPass Business admin console provides a simplified onboarding and account management experience in one, easy-to-use tool. To further aid admins in driving end user adoption across their organization, the admin console also now includes a new adoption dashboard, which provides admins with the insights and tools they need to know when to re-engage users in order to achieve greater enrollment and eliminate lengthy adoption challenges.
The solution also includes Families as a Benefit at no additional cost, which provides a premium LastPass account for every employee’s personal use and up to 5 accounts for those closest to them, to ensure that both their professional and personal lives are protected.
“Last year, as more people were forced to work at home and cybersecurity became increasingly complex, we chose to upgrade our LastPass product application based on customer feedback,” said Paddy Srinivasan, Chief Product and Technology Officer, LogMeIn. “The LastPass Business password management experience now provides several new customer-driven enhancements, designed with flexibility in mind, and we are proud to be recognized by CyberSecurity Breakthrough in the 2021 awards program for our efforts and success in this area.”
The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.
“In today’s threat landscape, 80% of data breaches are caused by weak, reused, or stolen passwords,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Unfortunately, traditional password management can be overwhelming for employees and their admins especially in today’s modern, remote-work environment. LastPass Business is built for this environment, delivering ‘breakthrough’ password management tools for end-users and admin tools to increase employee adoption and enable flexibility so that an organization can use the security tools they need, at their own pace. We are incredibly proud to recognize LastPass Business by LogMeIn with a 2021 CyberSecurity Breakthrough award – congratulations to the entire LastPass team.’”
