THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
When stored locally, the password database is lost with the device. Enterprise-class password managers have become one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to help employees lock down their online accounts. Most of the options were originally designed for individual users. Your organizational needs will differ wildly from security-conscious personal users, but the good news is that the key password management players all have made their solutions suitable for the business world. As you’d expect from a purely premium product, Keeper is one of the most sophisticated password managers around. Not only does it offer plugins for every major browser, plus mobile apps for iOS and Android, it’s also available as a desktop app for Windows, macOS and Linux. There’s support for biometric authentication on mobile devices too, and syncs your data across an unlimited number of devices.
The 1Password Family plan costs $4.99 per month billed annually and adds the ability to share passwords and data with five family members and easy account recovery. Users can also set different permissions for each family member, and add more users for $1 each, making it the most cost-effective solution for big family needs. There was a time when most people could get by with a handful of easy-to-remember passwords. But with more and more personal and financial data being stored online, the need for complicated passwords and secure ways to store them has given rise to the password manager. Meanwhile, Bitwarden’s $10-per-year paid version has most of the features you’d find with LastPass, Keeper or 1Password, though it can be a bit counter-intuitive to use. Privacy geeks will appreciate that Bitwarden gives you the option of setting up your own server to sync your passwords. The trade-off for that enhanced security is a bit of inconvenience.
Overall, though, NordPass is a highly capable password manager that does a little more than would be expected. The only drawback we encountered was that Zoho Vault sometimes tripped over Google’s two-page logins in our testing, but Follow-the-sun Zoho representatives tell us that has since been fixed. KeePass may be the most powerful and customizable password manager around, and it’s entirely free. The catch is that you’ll have to put a lot of the pieces together yourself.
This is what worries me about cloud password management. https://t.co/tPB2Np59Ia

It gets rid of local vaults and the standalone license, which means you won’t be able to use 1Password without signing up for the subscription model. It also no longer uses a Mac-native programming language for its macOS desktop app, but in our week with the beta 1Password 8 hummed along in the background as quietly as 1Password 7 does. Our expert walks you through how to set up and take advantage of the features in our favorite, 1Password. If you prefer to use a local vault and want to avoid 1Password’s subscription fees, standalone licenses are available for macOS and Windows. But the local vault feature will be removed in the upcoming version of 1Password.
CyberArk’s pricing is quote-based, and as they offer a wide range of different tools, you’ll need to contact CyberArk’s sales teams to find out how much it will cost your business to use their services. Its cost per user is lower than other brands on this list, and RoboForm offers discounts for more users and longer-term subscriptions. One of my team members recommended that I set up KeeperChat and create different group chats for different teams — marketing, IT, HR, etc. We then could securely share important files and even set “self-destruct” timers on messages containing sensitive information that delete themselves after a set time period. I really like that you can set up very specific login requirements, such as employees only being able to log into their accounts in a specific location. So as soon as anyone leaves the geofenced radius around the office, they won’t be able to log into any work accounts. 2.🥈 1Password— Easy to use, with multiple vaults for secure sharing.
Password managers do all the work of keeping your passwords in one, easy-to-access spot. They need storage because this data must take up space somewhere.
The password generator included in mSecure works well, but it wasn’t our favorite. There’s no option to force it to produce human-readable words. As a result, every password is a truly random string that’s hard to type if you don’t have auto-fill enabled.
And the intuitive admin console made it easy for me to create company-wide logins and share them with relevant members . This means that your information is encrypted before it’s stored on the company’s servers — it’s literally impossible for a password manager company to read your passwords.
1Password does everything right for a fair price, offering a unique password security model and a slew of features for the reasonable cost of $3 per month. Password managers are the easiest way to secure all your online accounts at once. Password Manager is a component of the Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite, a system that helps enterprises to better manage their identity polices and credentials, which also includes 2FA and enrolment. Customers feedback suggests that Hitachi Password Manager is a good choice for enterprises looking for a comprehensive identity management suite. Built on a zero-knowledge security architecture, password encryption and decryption occurs only on the client’s device.

Dashlane excels at these basic password management functions, and RoboForm has the most advanced form filler on the market. RememBear has one of the most fun interfaces around — it’s full of animated bears that provide step-by-step instructions to help users get started. It also uses a unique achievement system to help you learn how to use the product — you “earn bears” by performing tasks like adding a credit card, importing existing logins, and coming up with a secure master password.
We’ll be updating this story periodically as new options become available. In light of our top choice’s recent pricing change, we may be reconsidering the order in the near future, and will update this story accordingly. Working remotely has become routine for many of us and it’s more essential than ever to secure your online presence with strong passwords. But it can be a challenge to memorize multiple passwords, and it’s downright dangerous to use the same one over and over. 1Password syncs passwords and personal data across all your devices. It’s not quite as slick or capable as many competitors, but it’s still an easy-to-use utility. Keeper Password Manager & Digital Vault is an elegant and security-first password management solution available for all popular platforms and browsers.
There are legacy desktop applications for Windows and Mac still available, with some limits. Meanwhile, the local-network-only LastPass Pocket option for Windows and Linux has been discontinued, as has password filling for Windows applications.

The time spent on actually making many of the login entries work for Dashlane, i.e. manual log in and re-save credentials, was gone. We just can’t recommend it for all users over some other options on the market. 1Password is the most balanced of the three, with a reasonable price tag and a generous list of features. Bitwarden has fewer features, though it’s free or, if you’re paying, very inexpensive, while Dashlane has more features but demands a higher fee. Ease of use isn’t a problem — getting around Sticky Password is simple enough — but we expect more when options like 1Password and Dashlane are on the table. Still, Sticky Password is a solid choice for those who can look past its dated sensibilities. You can read about our experience with it in our Sticky Password review.
Users are limited in the number of secure notes, credit cards, and shared passwords and can expand each limit with add-on costs. Three paid plans ranging from $2.50 to $4.99 per month add additional storage and sharing as well as the ability to add up to six family members. Securden is another name you may not have heard of, but it has a few different solutions for business account security, including their password manager for enterprises. Securden’s password manager has a long list of features including a robust array of admin tools like the typical group-based management and reporting, but it extends beyond that. Securden offers request-based permission workflows, where a user must request access to a resource and have it approved prior to authenticating to the resource.
Consequently, the $3-per-month Premium subscription doesn’t feel very premium. It adds features application password management like one-to-many sharing and priority support, but those features don’t justify the extra cost.
