Expert Insights Verdict on Dashlane Business

Dashlane is one of the top vendors providing password management for consumers. The extreme ease of use of the service, coupled with strong encryption means it’s a no brainer for security conscious people looking for a password management solution. However, when it comes to business the service doesn’t quite hold up. There is a lack of Microsoft AD integration which is offered by competitors like LastPass, but crucially, customers report that key admin features are missing. Admin console features such as reporting are included, but customers argue they are not as fully featured as competitor services, with fewer security policies available. This means that Dashlane is a good option for very small teams, as it prioritises end usability and granular admin controls may not be as high a priority. However, larger teams may wish to look at a competitor service like LastPass, who offer more advanced admin consoles and AD integration.

Expert Insights recommends Dashlane if you have a very small team, who need easy to use password management.
