One of the main things we like about LastPass is that it’s ultimately as scalable as you need it to be. From individuals and families to small-to-medium businesses and enterprises with thousands of employees, there is an option to suit your needs.
This week, in our last post on LastPass, we’ll be taking a look at some of the additional features that are available in LastPass Enterprise.
The primary point of LastPass Enterprise is to cater to people with an expanded need for control over their security, potentially with many more users. Whereas LastPass for Teams is for up to 50 users, there is no limit on the number of users that you can have with LastPass Enterprise.
It integrates directly with Identity providers like Microsoft Active Directory, (including Azure AD,) Okta and OneLogin to perform tasks such as provisioning and deprovisioning users automatically from your LastPass Enterprise account as they are added or removed from your systems, or adding them to groups.
Advanced reporting options are available to track password habits, helping to curtail problems before they become larger issues. These kinds of advanced, detailed reports can also be useful for auditing purposes.
A major feature of LastPass Enterprise is its ability to act as an SSO portal for your organisation. There are 1,200+ apps available to integrate with LastPass’ SSO feature, such as Dropbox, G Suite, DocuSign, LinkedIn and so on.
Single Sign On, as the name suggests, is software that acts as an authentication provider for other apps and services; when the user opens a supported application or service, they don’t need to log in using traditional methods – the SSO software authenticates them directly, eliminating the need for multiple passwords entirely.
As you may have read last week, some of the more advanced security policies for LastPass are only available with the Enterprise version. Essentially, these are settings that really only an IT professional should adjust; however, they can be very useful for giving more direct control of security, particularly in larger organisations which often present larger challenges.
Advanced enterprise-exclusive options like Global Equivalent Domains can also be set up here, along with additional Multi-Factor Authentication options.
