Passwords are Cyber Criminals’ new currency, used in credential stuffing attacks, where they automatically place users’ credentials, a series of stolen usernames and passwords into login forms on websites in order to access the users’ accounts.
Why is this method so effective?
Users will often use either weak passwords or the same passwords on each account without enabling multi factor authentication.
If Cyber Criminals guess one password, chances are they will guess your other passwords for your secure websites and apps.
How do your employees keep track of their secure passwords?
Password Manager with SSO.
Dashline says Password Managers offer users the capability to identify and remove any weak or reused passwords, allowing you to see all apps and services your users are using, enforcing strong passwords on the services and applications your employees install themselves.
Through Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), a series of digital information, encryption keys and digital certificates can be stored.
The Password Manager may include a Smart Password Generator recommending strong passwords that are difficult to crack and a Secret Key that is virtually uncrackable such as G9-D56ADK-YC8JDH-7DBQL-5D284-U4NDK-XTFFEL.
A Password Manager will store all your passwords and secure information in a Vault. Single Sign-On (SSO) is based on trust through a single domain that looks after your authentication and access control.
With Zero Knowledge Platforms every password is encrypted on your employees’ devices, all protected by powerful Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Encryption Keys. Your employees will select a single password for the Password Manager only, prompted to use multi-factor authentication before they can access their Vaults.
Your employees can use a Third Party Single Sign-On Solution, generating passwords of up to 50 characters, where you can change any password on any device.
