Summary

Review date: October 19th 2018

1Passsword offers both consumer and corporate password management solutions. Their business password management service is focussed on employee ease of use, security controls, auditing and easy deployment features. The service is similar to that offered of most cloud based password managers, with employee passwords stored in a secure vault. End users can access their passwords through an app or browser extension. There is also an admin portal offering controls and analytics. They keep passwords in vaults, which admins can delegate access to for end users to access multiple accounts.

Benefits of 1Password Business

  • High levels of customer satisfaction
  • Strong encryption methods
  • Good auditing and insights capabilities
  • Slack integrations for actionable alerts
  • Good user security features such as multi-factor authentication and auto-fill which works well for end users
  • Easy to deploy
  • Intuitive dashboard with a browser extension and mobile support
  • Great customer support
  • Active directory integration
  • Good document and file support
  • Great for Mac users

What you should know about 1Password Business

  • Less of a focus on business features like permission based roles and secure password sharing than corporate focussed competitors such as ManageEngine
  • Customers have reported sharing passwords in a vault to other users can be tricky, leading to them using tools like Slack which may be less secure
  • Better suited to MAC users

Expert Insights Verdict on 1Password Business

1Password offers a good business password management service. Coming from a consumer market, the service delivers great functionality to end users, simplifying the password process. All they need is one password to get access to all their encrypted passwords, made even simpler with active directory integration. These then auto-fill onto webpages, which works well. This has led to high levels of customer support for the product from people who have used it for their business accounts. There are also good admin tools which offer custom roles and advanced permissions, as well as reporting tools. However, these aspects, especially when it comes to secure password sharing, are not as strong as business focussed competitors such as Secret Server, or services who also focus on user ease of use, such as LastPass. Customers have reported their password sharing in particular can be tricky for end users, with certain vaults not being shareable. Nevertheless, 1Password is a good alternative to LastPass for small teams, offering similar functionality for end users even if the admin side is less developed.

Expert Insights would recommend 1Password’s platform for excellent ease of use for end users, especially for Mac users.
