LastPass for Education allows for improved higher education cyber security

LastPass gives IT better control while giving LastPass student users a streamlined, seamless experience.

Better security starts with passwords

When 81% of data breaches are caused by passwords, better password security can’t wait

The average person struggles to manage 213 passwords in the workplace, and IT has no visibility into the poor password behaviors that inevitably follow. While faculty, staff and students just want to work efficiently, IT needs to ensure the proper controls are in place to protect the university. However, 61% of IT executives enforce strong passwords through education alone, a strategy that clearly is failing to protect organizations from costly breaches.

With LastPass Business, ensure university data is secure and properly managed, while giving faculty and students a tool that allows them to achieve better password habits. With a user experience that’s loved and trusted by over 13 million people worldwide, LastPass reduces the risk of breach, increases cyber security awareness, and delivers a convenient login experience for all.

Easy to adopt, easy to use

With federated login for Active Directory sync, faculty don’t have to worry about creating an account or a separate master password – it’s all done for them, and they can login with their existing AD password.img_illustration_visual_business_half-screen_directory-integration_1-svg

“We needed an uncomplicated solution that was easy for people to use and adopt.” Jimmy Lummis Associate Director of Cyber Security, Georgia Institute of Technology

Reliable save and fill for every password

LastPass does the work of creating, remembering, and filling in passwords, so your faculty and staff can focus on the real work. Keep things simple for everyone with one place to store and find every password.

Convenient password sharing

LastPass provides quick, flexible sharing for collaborative teams, while making it easy to maintain accountability, use generated passwords, and revoke access in real-time.

Internet2 & LastPass

Together with Internet2 NET+, we have created turnkey, affordable packages designed to make it easy for you to provide secure password management with LastPass to every person on campus - students, faculty, and staff.

Comprehensive security controls

From 100 customizable security policies to detailed reporting logs, the admin dashboard is IT’s command central for deploying LastPass campus-wide and strengthening password security throughout the community.

The unified admin console lets you enable or restrict logins by geographical location. 

Plug-and-play integrations for IT teams

Through scalable, automated integrations with your user directory sync of choice, LastPass simplifies employee onboarding and offboarding for IT teams, including seamless directory sync and soo:

  • Microsoft Active Directory sync
  • Google Cloud Directory sync
  • Microsoft Azure Active Directory sync
  • OneLogin sync
  • Okta sync
“The option to bundle an enterprise site license with Premium accounts … went alongside our security initiative by doing more than just talking about the importance of password management, but also providing an actual password management solution for the community to use.” Miguel Sanchez Information Security, Harvard University

The 21st-century benefit for your community

Help faculty and staff take good password practices home with them. Add LastPass Premium as a Perk to your organization purchase and give the modern benefit of online security with an upgraded personal LastPass account. Faculty, staff and students have convenient, secure access to all their passwords, while admins can put policies and controls in place to ensure work credentials stay even after the users leaves.

Designed for security first

We’re uncompromising when it comes to data security. User data is encrypted and decrypted at the device level, so that the master password – and the passwords stored in LastPass – are kept secret, even from us.

“Being able to point our community to LastPass when they’re concerned about their password and account security has been beneficial to our awareness efforts.” Richard Biever Chief Information Security Officer, Duke University
