LastPass
For any business that is remote - this is an absolute must. Businesses that are brick and mortar that don't have a lot of passwords or not a lot being used across the board, this may not be something a company like that would have a need for. But anything remote or with many employees using logins to outside websites and apps, this is the way to go.

Pros
LastPass
  • Ability to store multiple different logins for one site for assistants that work under multiple solicitors.
  • Ability to share passwords between staff when needed without them being sent by email or simply passed around on notes, making it much more secure.

  • The UI is intuitive and simple to use and navigate. When generating a secure token to be used for VPN access, all the navigation is clear and intuitive. There is no confusion when our users use Symantec VIP.
  • Every generated token expires after 30-60 seconds, thus providing an extra layer of security and reducing any risk of someone re-using a token or pin to gain unauthorized access into our system.
  • The app is super responsive and has no lag and little to no latency. Everything loads quickly and is super speedy.
  • Our department can opt for a 6 digit code which we can use while logging in on different sites and SSO access can be easily set up and achieved with this tool.

Cons
LastPass
  • It does not work for all platforms. some secure platforms are still managing to avoid the usage of platforms like these.
  • Sometimes we add passwords and we have to do it a few times for them to show in the selected folder.
  • I have nothing else.

  • when setting a token to a phone call, the phone calls often take a minute + to call the user.
  • When Symantec's VIP app is removed or reinstalled on a phone, the credential ID will change, and that dictates a call to the helpdesk to allow the user access.
  • Temporary security codes while handy, must be set to expire immediately to stay secure.

LastPass has been a game changer for me. I keep more than 100 passwords for financial sites for my company and many of those sites will automatically log you out if you've been idle for 10 or 15 minutes. Typing and re-typing credentials is not only extremely inefficient, but it also adds the risk that you could type them incorrectly and have your account locked. LastPass fills in all my credentials automatically and helps me to generate secure passwords for new sites. I will always want this software on my machine because it makes my life so much easier.

Usability
LastPass
I login to LastPass when I turn on my computer in the morning and I use it throughout the day. I cannot express how much easier, quicker, smoother (running out of adjectives) this is than our old Excel spreadsheet. I don't bookmark pages anymore, I put them in last pass as all I have to do is search for the site name, press launch and because I have auto signin for most of the sites, I'm in and doing my business in seconds. Truly a blessing!

Educating users on password management and the basics of the solution is key to then have them successfully start using it themselves. Many have taken it further and now use it for personal passwords as well.

The has been the first and only password management software that I have used so far, and haven't found a need to change it. I have seen promotions for other software like Roboform and Dashlane but have not had the desire to test how these work because I'm comfortable using Lastpass.

The Symantec VIP solution has a more easy implementation process, which makes implementation faster. The Prove Of Concept of the solution presents the best results compared with Duo. The final price charged was cheaper. Consultants that participate in the process get show to us in a more clear manner all scenarios where we can use the Symantec VIP.

Scalability
LastPass
It has been really helpful to be able to evolve how we use LastPass as we grow and change departments, add departments, add personnel, and levels of security. Having some flexibility has been great to get us what we need and not have to change platforms, which for a growing company is always a pain.

Return on Investment
LastPass
  • Mitigating MSP compromising is the biggest thing. We have not had a breach before LastPass for Business, and certainly not since. Many MSPs get compromised due to recycled passwords and having them stored insecurely.
  • Another positive is that we are a reseller. When we see a client using autofill in a browser, which is insecure, we can offer them this solution, and being users ourselves, helps with the selling points.
  • When onboarding new employees, being able to add them to LastPass for access already conditions them that this is the only way to manage passwords for our customers. This mitigates, if not fully eliminates, the possibility of security breaches.

  • It was as easy to implement and manage as promised, so that definitely saved us time and frustration.
  • It allowed us to improve on our existing PHI and PII security measures.
  • Allowing secure access from remote locations, especially smart phones, was a huge plus.
