BOSTON, Nov. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn, Inc. (NASDAQ:LOGM) today announced that Gartner, Inc. has named LastPass, the company’s leading password manager, a Notable Vendor in the 2018 Midmarket Context: ‘Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide’ report.

According to Gartner, “the threat level and risk to MSEs continue to rise, with the volume and frequency of attacks, while the resources available to defend against them remain flat. Security breaches that exploit user behavior and the weaknesses of passwords are prevalent.”
“We believe that inclusion in this Gartner report validates the customer pain points that LastPass aims to solve for – all companies, regardless of size, need identity and access management capabilities that won’t be an administrative burden on IT staff,” said Sandor Palfy, Chief Technology Officer of Identity and Access Management at LogMeIn. “With LastPass, MSEs can overcome limited budgets and staffing resources to provide their employees the access and efficiency they need.”
According to research by LastPass, the average employee struggles to manage 191 passwords, and IT has no visibility into the poor password behaviors that inevitably follow. For over 43,000 businesses of all sizes, LastPass simplifies password security through centralized control for IT while removing password obstacles for employees. With the same experience loved and trusted by over 16 million people worldwide, LastPass Enterprise reduces the risk of breach while delivering the convenient login experience employees want.
LastPass continues to focus on driving simplicity for its users. Earlier this year, LogMeIn launched zero-knowledge, cloud-based federated login to LastPass Enterprise with Microsoft’s Active Directory (“AD”). With federated login for AD, LastPass Enterprise provides organizations with the ability to allow employees to access LastPass with their Microsoft Active Directory credentials, so they truly only have one password (their AD password) to remember.
