Protecting your organisation with a Password Manager

One of the golden rules of passwords is not to share your them with other people. So what happens in an organisational setting when multiple people need access to a supplier website and need to use the generic company login? Gone are the days where you could use an easy to remember password and just let everyone have it. To protect your organisation, it is vital to use complex passwords and keep them secret. Add to this that many users no longer have just one system password to remember for work purposes, there are now many cloud services people use at work that all need individual, secure passwords. So how do organisations get round these problems?

The answer is simple – use a password manager.

 

What is a password manager?

A password manager securely stores all your passwords for any websites, or apps you use, and users can access them from any device using a single ‘master password’. They also generate highly secure and complex passwords and auto-complete username and password fields for you. Password Managers will alert users to security risks so action can be taken to protect the individual and the organisation they work for. Without a password manager, each user in an organisation is put in the role of implementing security. Nowhere else in an organisation do users have this level of responsibility.

 

How does a password manager help organisations deal with shared passwords?

Many organisations use some services where multiple people have to login using a shared set of details – for example, you possibly have a business Amazon account. There is only one login, but multiple members of your team may need to access that. If one of those people leaves – do you remember to reset passwords for all the sites they had access to? With a password manager, you can delegate access to whomever you wish, without actually ever revealing the password itself. The password is delegated to their password manager, which will automatically fill in the password box at the login page, without actually showing it on screen.

 

Password boss

Weak and stolen passwords account for 81% of security breaches. Helping your team to use strong passwords, that they don’t need to write down in order to remember, and to share passwords for multiuser services, such as vendor website logins, is a very real challenge, at ramsac we use Password Boss for employees to store their passwords (both individual and at a company level).

Password Boss simplifies password management by storing all the unique and complex passwords for all websites and apps while the user only needs to remember one master password, It will automatically enter your username and password for you to simplify logging in and help you to create unique and strong passwords for every different site you visit while advising you on any weak or repeated passwords in use. Password Boss performs ‘dark scans’, by scanning all of your passwords and accounts to find out which have been stolen in security breaches.

Changing IT support providers, like changing lawyers, is not a decision any business takes lightly or frequently. The decision is fraught with numerous questions such as whether the new team will understand my business needs, will it cause teething problems, and more importantly, will the reality match the sales pitch! We took that decision to move to Ramsac in January after ten years with another provider and we have not regretted that choice for a moment. Ramsac are simply great! From the get go we have been very well supported from the front line very helpful telephone support team right up to our relationship manager. We feel that the Ramsac team are very much an integral part of us . What however has driven us to write this review is the fabulous support we have received following a cyber attack this week. Something no business wants to happen but is increasingly a sad factor of modern cyber life. The Ramsac cyber support team were superb and really gave us first class support and guidance through what was frankly a horrible experience. Thank you Dan! Denise Herrington

We have worked with Ramsac since 2015. They offer a truly winning formula. We have been delighted by their support at all three levels: our network consultant (Colin) understands our set up and is great when we need to upgrade our infrastructure; we have ready access to our account manager who has been great with supporting our growth; and the helpdesk is always so patient for the day-to-day glitches. Very professional and supportive – thank you team ramsac!

I have known Dan May and Ramsac for 5 or 6 years now. Dan is such a great guy and really helpful with strategic advice and input on all things IT. He's so approachable and doesn't baffle you with IT jargon. If you are looking to outsource your IT or you have a problem you need help with Dan is definitely the one to ask.
