The benefits of using Keeper Security password management software
It seems like not a day goes by that we aren’t confronted with some sort of password-related issue. With our digital fingerprints everywhere, password security is paramount. Having your digital information compromised is akin to leaving your Social Security card on the side of the road or handing it out on a city street. Simply put, password security is essential to protecting ourselves, both in the business world and in our daily lives.
According to Verizon’s 2023 Data Breach Investigations Report, human error, such as weak passwords and falling for phishing scams, is the leading cause of data breaches. Fortunately, these are solutions that can help small businesses mitigate these risks and enhance their online security. At North Star, we recommend Keeper password management software.
The Significance of Password Management
Weak passwords and password reuse across multiple sites can create vulnerabilities that cybercriminals can exploit. Keeper offers a comprehensive solution to this problem by providing highly secure and user-friendly password management software.
Keeper Security excels at generating unique and complex passwords for all your various website and application logins. These passwords are stored in an encrypted vault (as opposed to a scrap of paper or Post-it note) relieving you of the burden of having to manage or remember them. This means that your online accounts remain secure, even if one of your passwords is compromised, as hackers can’t use the same password across multiple sites.
One of the features we like most about Keeper Security, and one of the reasons why North Star recommends Keeper to our clients, is their commitment to user privacy. The software follows a zero-knowledge and zero-trust security model, which means that even employees of Keeper do not have access to your personal information (so no need to worry about a disgruntled worked auctioning off your info to the highest bidder). Also, as another layer of protection, Keeper offers multi-factor authentication to provide an added layer of security.
Additionally, Keeper Security works where you do—the software is accessible on mobile devices, desktops, laptops, or as a browser extension. This cross-platform availability ensures that you can easily sync and access your passwords from any device or system. The software also offers file encryption, enabling secure sharing of assets with others within your network and protecting your data from unauthorized access. On top of all that, Keeper provides dark web monitoring to alert you when your credentials are found on the dark web, so you can react quickly.
Tailored Solutions for Businesses
While Keeper is great for individual use, it also provides a range of features and specialized solutions designed for businesses to protect their systems and data. Keeper Security’s business plans include specialized visibility, management, and compliance features that are essential for protecting an organization’s sensitive data. These versatile features are tailored to meet the needs of both private and public organizations.
Advantages of Using Keeper Security
Keep Security employs 256-bit encryption to store all data securely. This level of encryption makes it extremely difficult for hackers to gain access to user accounts or sensitive information, providing businesses with peace of mind.
In addition to password management, Keeper offers secure file-sharing and storage features for both personal and business accounts. Users can store and organize up to five files in their vault, while enterprise and group plans allow for greater levels of storage.
Keeper Security also includes a digital wallet feature that securely stores and auto-fills payment information like credit card numbers and mailing addresses, making online shopping easier, safer, and more convenient.
Additionally, Keeper Security enhances account security by using multi-factor authentication, including FID02 hardware security keys, biometric login with technologies like Tough or FaceID, and Keeper DNA, which uses Apple Watch or Android Wear devices to verify your identity.
In case of an emergency, businesses and users can designate up to five trusted individuals to have emergency access to their Keeper Vault. This feature ensures that critical data remains accessible in case of unforeseen circumstances.
Also, Keeper Security performs password security audits to help businesses identify weak or compromised passwords, allowing them to stay protected from, and ahead of, potential cyberattacks.
Keeper Data Security
Keeper takes data security seriously and boasts an impressive array of certifications and compliance measures. The software holds the longest-standing SOC 2 and ISO 27001 certifications in the industry. It is also GDPR compliant, CCPA compliant, and certified by TrustArc for online privacy. Furthermore, Keeper’s zero-trust and zero-knowledge encryption model ensures that even in a worst-case scenario, your information remains protected.
Essential Password Protection
In today’s digital world, password protection is essential. With so many apps, websites, and services that we touch every day, and which in turn house so much of our vital and sensitive data, making sure that our passwords are safe and secure is key to both individuals and businesses.
