As a rapidly growing insurance company, investing in identity management, authentication, and password security was high on Hollard’s technology priority list. To ensure they can consistently operate in a resilient, reliable, and secure manner, Hollard was concerned that asking their staff to maintain increasingly complex passwords across multiple systems was becoming impractical.
Improper security behaviors risked passwords being written down and reused, leading to a greater risk of compromised credentials. They also wanted to maintain a catalog of all critical service accounts and passwords to mitigate the risk of staff leaving the organization with that knowledge.
To be able to have a toolset that can help people in their own personal life, as well as make our own enterprise more secure, is a huge benefit.

To help address their password hygiene challenges, Hollard implemented a centralized password management system. The solution needed to be easy to use, as user adoption would be critical to a successful implementation. They also wanted a system that their staff could use – both at work and at home – to make it easier to change old habits. It needed to be intuitive for their administrators to store passwords and extract them for when they need to log on to systems.
Choosing a partner with 24/7 global support and a local presence was vital to ensure they could maintain critical security systems at all times. The partner also needed to demonstrate they take their security compliance seriously. Hollard chose LastPass as it met all their essential requirements and offers a trusted, proven, and innovative solution beyond just being an enterprise password manager.
