1Password will now help small businesses identify chinks in their security armor

Password manager firm 1Password has released a new solution it claims will help firms improve their overall security posture.

Insights from 1Password contains tools to help firms monitor data breaches, password vulnerabilities, and team usage within shared vaults, while also providing suggested next steps and allowing businesses to notify employees of data breaches.

The news comes as fatigue regarding password security remains high among the workforce, 20% of burned-out workers feel their company’s security policies “aren’t worth the hassle” according to 1Password’s own research, not a glowing recommendation of the current crop of business password managers.

What can the solution do?

Insights from 1Password can monitor how data breaches affect existing team members and identify the type of data exposed.

As part of the product’s suite of ID management tools, it can also identify business email addresses exposed in data breaches among employees who have yet to register for a 1Password account. 

1Password can also alert employees about data breaches and share recommendations to determine next steps and help secure affected employees.

In addition, the new tool will include new tools for password management.

These include capabilities to identify weak, reused, and compromised passwords across employees and teams, leveraging data from third party website Have I Been Pwned to help IT and security teams track and report on detailed password health metrics, and providing detailed exportable reports and shareable links to mitigate risks and vulnerabilities.

Capabilities to monitor team usage are also included in the latest offering from 1password, which it says can help to minimize security risks stemming from issues such as Shadow IT.

These include identifying who hasn’t used their account lately and sending reminders to employees to use their accounts, as well as understanding who isn’t using their private vaults, and sending reminders to employees to mitigate risks from poor security hygiene.

“To keep your employees safe and secure at work, you need to know where vulnerabilities exist in your organization,” said Jeff Shiner, CEO of 1Password. “Having the right policies in place is just the start."

"We designed Insights from 1Password to give IT and security admins broader visibility into potential security risks so businesses improve their understanding of the threats posed by employee behavior, and have clear steps to mitigate those issues.”

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Peloton Reverses Course, Will Continue to Support Apple GymKit

Earlier this week, Peloton said that it would drop support for Apple's GymKit feature that syncs data to the Health app. Customers were unhappy with the decision and complained to the company, leading Peloton to announce a change in plans. Peloton on Thursday said that after listening to member feedback on GymKit, the integration will continue to be offered. Peloton wanted to stop offering GymKit integration in favor of the Peloton One-Tap tracking feature, but GymKit has been a key feature on the $2,500 Bike+ since its 2020 debut , and other Peloton machines since 2022. After listening to Members’ feedback about discontinuing Apple GymKit integration for Bike+, we have decided to continue offering Apple GymKit integration.
