LastPass Business adds new adoption tool, family accounts

Image Description

LogMeIn has announced that it has redesigned its LastPass Business password manager in an effort to better secure the online accounts of employees working from home as well as those at organizations which have adopted hybrid working.

LastPass Business, formerly known as LastPass Enterprise, is built on customer feedback and designed to secure access in the modern hybrid workforce. 

VP of product management at LastPass, Dan DeMichele explained in a press release how customer feedback helped influence its redesign of LastPass Business, saying:

“Customer feedback is at the core of these updates to our LastPass Business offering. Over the last year, we heard their need for better visibility into end user adoption; a desire to encourage good password habits beyond the workplace, especially as everyone spends more time online; and the requests not to be forced into technology they’re not ready for. We’re confident our customers will be happy to see this feedback come to life with our updated LastPass Business offering.” 

As part of its redesign, the service now features a brand-new admin console that makes onboarding and account management easier than ever. To help drive adoption across organizations, the LastPass admin console also now includes a new adoption dashboard which provides admins with the insights and tools they need to get all of a company's employees to use LogMeIn's business password management software.

SSO, MFA and family accounts

LastPass Business customers can now access the company's single-sign-on (SSO) app in the LastPass browser extension and password vault to make it simpler to access their key applications. This means that employees now have a seamless login experience whether they're accessing a traditional web login or an SSO-enabled cloud app.

Businesses can start with a base business password management package from LastPass which includes SSO for up to three cloud apps and multi-factor authentication (MFA) at no additional cost. However, as a company's security needs change, advanced functionality can be added through LastPass's SSO and MFA add-on offerings.

Finally, LastPass Business also now includes Families as a Benefit at no additional cost. With this feature, employees get access to a premium LastPass account for personal use as well as up to five accounts for those closest to them so organizations can encourage good password habits beyond the workplace.

LastPass Business including Freemium SSO and MFA is available at $6 per user/ month while the Advanced MFA add-on costs an additional $3 per user/month and the Advanced SSO add-on is $2 per user/month. However, both add-ons and a LastPass Business account can be bundled together for just $9 per user/month.

  • Microsoft's latest acquisition wants to help your company hit all its goals

    Microsoft has acquired objectives and key results (OKR) solutions provider Ally.io,. 

    The company confirmed the acquisition in a blog post, saying it expects the deal to “improve employee experience by aligning people’s work with team goals and company mission.”

    Once the formalities are out of the way, Ally.io will join Microsoft Viva, the company’s “employee experience platform,” whose goal is to bring together data, comms, learning and resources. It is powered by Microsoft 365, the company’s cloud-based collaboration suite, and is integrated in Microsoft Teams. It currently has four modules, Connections, Insights, Topics and Learning.

    As an OKR platform, Ally.io works to give everyone within an organization visibility and clarity into their entire work process, tying day-to-day work with the firm’s overall strategic objectives. 

    It launched in 2018 and has, according to Microsoft’s announcement, been adopted by more than 1,000 “leading high-tech, manufacturing, financial services and healthcare businesses” in more than 80 countries around the world. 

    Helping businesses adapt to remote work

    Over the next year, Microsoft will invest further to bring Ally.io into the Microsoft cloud, Microsoft Teams, and weave it into Viva, Office, Power BI and the broader set of Microsoft 365 apps and services. 

    “We are deeply committed to a smooth transition for all customers as we bring Ally.io into the Microsoft cloud,” Kirk Koenigsbauer, COO and Corporate VP for Experiences and Devices said in the blog post.

    For Microsoft, the acquisition means further reinforcement of the idea of helping businesses adapt to the new normal and the realities of remote working. Combined with Microsoft Viva, Ally will “enrich how individuals and teams come together to align and achieve better business outcomes.” 

    The financial details of the deal were not disclosed, but Ally.io has raised a total of $76 million in two funding rounds so far.
