BOSTON, Dec. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGM) today announced the next major update to its recently released LastPass Identity solution that introduces new ways for an employee to access their work without needing to type a password. This release marks the next phase in the company’s longer-term strategy to redefine cloud identity and expand LastPass for Business into a complete identity offering.
Building on its industry-leading enterprise password management technology, LastPass Identity now delivers a complete passwordless login experience for employees across applications, VPNs and devices (PCs, Macs, Android & iOS mobile devices) through device-native biometric authentication, single sign-on and federated identity integrations, all while giving IT complete control over every access point.
When passwords are estimated to be the root cause of 80 percent of all data breaches and IT is spending approximately four hours per week on password management-related issues alone, it’s clear that passwords continue to be a source of many security risks and employee frustrations. Going passwordless with LastPass Identity introduces new ways for employees to securely log in to their work accounts and devices without a password in sight, thus eliminating many password-related risks, leading to higher security and employee productivity, while also freeing up resources for IT.
New updates designed to eliminate the need for passwords for end users include:
“For over a decade, LastPass has made it easier for thousands of businesses and millions of users to improve their password security and safeguard their digital assets. The truth of the matter is, passwords aren’t fully going away; there are still some use cases where you have to manage passwords behind the scenes in order to provide that passwordless login experience for the user,” said John Bennett, SVP & GM of Identity & Access Management at LogMeIn. “As a leader in managing passwords, we believe we are uniquely positioned to help businesses provide the best balance of strong security and user experience. Our LastPass Identity solution does that by enabling IT to manage every password behind the scenes while also giving employees a simple, truly passwordless experience. We are committed to continuing to build on our identity and access management capabilities designed to enable businesses to simply and securely address current and emerging access and authentication challenges.”
These passwordless features are now available for all LastPass Identity customers.
