Password Management Fundamentals Part 2


Continuing our discussion on password management, this edition focuses on enhancing organizational control and compliance through advanced password management features.

Joint Administration for Control and Compliance

Effective password management tools offer advanced administrative features that enhance security and compliance:

  • Audit and Reporting: Administrators can view audits and reports on password-related activity, which is essential for maintaining security standards and regulatory compliance.
  • Employee Offboarding: Tools should enable administrators to terminate system access swiftly for employees who leave the company, safeguarding against unauthorized access.
  • Shared Access: Passwords approved for team use can be shared automatically, ensuring everyone can access the necessary resources without compromising security.
  • Password Policies: Setting up passwords to auto-expire and auto-generate strong, new passwords helps maintain security as threats evolve. Implementing two-factor authentication (2FA) policies adds an additional layer of security that is crucial for protecting sensitive data.

Advanced User Features in Password Management Tools

A comprehensive password management system should empower users with features that improve both security and convenience. Here's what users can expect from an effective password management tool:

  • Single Click Access: Log into websites quickly and securely with just one click.
  • Password Organization: Set up folders to organize passwords effectively, making management simpler and more efficient.
  • Strong Password Generation: Automatically generate strong, unique passwords that meet the highest security standards.
  • Access Control: View and manage company-level passwords or those unique to specific operating groups or business units.
  • Private Account Management: Add and edit personal account passwords that are completely private and inaccessible to other users, administrators, and even the password management team.

Our Recommendation

For an all-encompassing solution, we recommend selecting a password management tool that offers centralized password management and credential sharing among all users. Additionally, the tool should facilitate the creation of dual-factor authentication codes, enhancing the security of sensitive accounts. Look for features such as audit reporting, easy offboarding processes, and the ability to set password policies that ensure regular updates and strong security measures.
