The journey to passwordless
Collect employee passwords in one secure place.
The first step to going passwordless is overcoming password challenges, such as employees relying on weak and reused passwords. LastPass Password Management (EPM) does just that. Employees only have to remember their master password while the password manager fills the rest for them. And IT has visibility into password hygiene for every login, for every user, reducing security risks everywhere.
Businesses can go even further, protecting every facet of their organization by replacing passwords with SAML 2.0 single sign-on (SSO) to access essential work apps – cloud, mobile, legacy, or on-premise. Pairing SSO with EPM ensures that employees are simply and securely connected to many services without messing with passwords.
Go passwordless with the LastPass Authenticator.
The LastPass Authenticator now allows businesses to go a step further, so employees can enjoy a truly passwordless experience. With passwordless login, your employees can decrypt their vault using the LastPass Authenticator rather than entering their master password.
All employees have to do is set up passwordless login to their vault using the LastPass Authenticator app. Best of all, you can grant employees immediate and consistent passwordless access to all credential-based logins they need, including SSO apps and workstations – for businesses who have the Advanced MFA add-on. But this is just the first step of LastPass’ passwordless journey.
Employ biometric factors to authenticate users.
Additional passwordless authentication options are coming soon and will further empower employees to access their vault using biometrics or security keys like YubiKey. With these implementations, users will be able to forget their master password altogether, instead logging in with physical security keys or personal information – fingerprint ID, face scan, voice recognition.
True end-to-end FIDO2 passwordless is coming.
The last step of the journey will involve LastPass providing users with a true passwordless login experience. LastPass will be the only password manager which will provide passwordless login to the encrypted vault with FIDO2 certified authenticators on mobile, web, and extensions and desktop.
