Dashlane
Well Suited:
  1. Organization Management: Dashlane has the ability to setup groups of people who can get access to items.
  2. Password Generation: This software makes good passwords that are secure.
  3. Low Tech-Literacy: For those in your organization that are not great at managing passwords, Dashlane makes it relatively easy.
Poorly Suited:
  1. Customization: Dashlane is not good at being able to control the way your passwords work or are generated.
  2. Browser Integration: Dashlane takes over so many field that it makes using a browser too difficult.
  3. Searching: When searching, it limits to certain fields and returns too many results, while excluding secure notes etc.

I think that MIM is great for compliance since it reduces the number of logins that are required by users. Most offices have post-it notes with logins floating around because there are so many to remember or there are "shared" logins. This reduces the number of logins to 1 and you can easily revoke access in one fell swoop. This prevents gaps and holes with terminations and updates to select groups are super simple.

Pros
Dashlane
  • Dashlane does a great job of detecting the password creation process on new websites and prompting users to store the data on the app. This saves a lot of time and eliminates the need to remember to save passwords manually.
  • Dashlane syncs well across devices. That password you created using your laptop is immediately available on your smartphone app without the need for double entry.
  • The Dashlane application provides a variety of data save types beyond just passwords. You are able to save account information, payment methods, and personal data in a categorized way.

Cons
Dashlane
  • Admin capabilities - Admins cannot reset passwords or 2SV tokens for any users, so they are left to contact Dashlane support. Without adequate management, Dashlane is tough to support internally effectively.
  • Reporting - Dashlane does not provide reports for when users export passwords, fail logins or do anything else to potentially compromise their accounts. The reporting right now simply shows when users are created and added/removed from sharing Groups, but even then, the reporting is broken.
  • Chrome - Chromebook users cannot take advantage of Dashlane to any real degree. They cannot set up 2SV tokens or keys, nor are they given the same features (Security Dashboard, Sharing Centre, etc.) so the experience is hampered, which adversely affects adoption.

  • For Windows Server 2008 R2 Servers is a great tool to set a codeless provisioning over new objects.
  • Can easily integrate with Active Directory and Exchange Servers, improving the identity sync between the final user and the lifecycle management.
  • Improvements in the areas of performance, simplified deployment easing the troubleshooting tasks, better documentation knowledge base, and more language support.
  • The codeless provisioning provided in FIM can sustain a variety from high demand to mid-size scenarios for account lifecycle management.

I can't imagine not having it. Dashlane is an integral part of all my computing, across PCs and Apple products. What Dashlane does should be built into every operating system!

We've had no issues with Dashlane. I can't speak to their customer service because I have not personally needed to contact them. I guess that speaks about their product if we've not had any issues to reach out about. Great for supporting data/information on multiple platforms that are shared among team members.

Dashlane was the best looking of them, we selected it because it went better with our communication style. 1Password was the second on the list, but we liked Dashlane applications more as well. It is really well design and polished, without compromising ease of use or speed.

It is Microsoft. We are a Microsoft shop, primarily. It integrates deeply with Active Directory making it good for Microsoft Active Directory shops.

Return on Investment
Dashlane
  • Greater level of security regarding passwords for the company, definitely a huge bonus
  • Can be frustrating if you're just trying to quickly log into something and it hasn't stored the correct password or doesn't load for some reason
  • Can be a painful setup process if you have to manually remove stored passwords from Chrome/other browsers

  • We see a positive impact simply in the time savings alone. Chasing accounts around is time-consuming and prone to error.
  • The cost to us is negligible to the value it provides.
