Secure Your Enterprise With Zoho Vault Password Management Software
Secure Your Enterprise With Zoho Vault Password Management Software
Recent data breaches have taught us something very important ― online users are spectacularly bad at choosing their strong passwords.
Today majority of online users are vulnerable to cyber attacks, not because they are not using any best antivirus or other security measures, but because they are using weak passwords that are easy to remember and reuse same passwords on multiple accounts and reusable passwords to secure their online accounts.
Ideally, your password should be at least 16 characters long and should contain a combination of digits, symbols, uppercase letters and lowercase letters.
Most of us know about this good password practice, but we just ignore it because it is really painful for us to memorize complex password strings for different accounts.
Here comes the need of a Password Manager OR Password Management Software .
Password Manager can significantly reduce your password memorizing problem, along with the cure for your bad habit of setting weak passwords and reusing the same password everywhere.
Typically, Password Manager generates long, complex, and most importantly unique passwords for you, and then stores them in an encrypted form on either your computer or a remote service.
All you need to do is remember one master password to open your password manager or the secure vault and access all your stored passwords.
Since there's a growing market for password managers for PCs and phones, it becomes quite difficult for users to choose a good password manager that suits their requirements.
While information security is a concern for everyone, it is even more important for businesses who store a lot of private information, such as employee data, financial records, and business transactions on their servers, to use a good password management solution.
I have been reviewing some security products from Zoho Corp . and got a chance to review Zoho Vault Password Manager , which I found to be a great password management solution not just for individuals but enterprises as well.
Zoho Vault is an online password management software that has been designed keeping in mind the requirements of individuals as well as businesses of all sizes and types.
Zoho Vault establishes a central repository that provides unmatched security and complete data privacy for individuals and companies to securely store, manage and safely share their sensitive data and access them from anywhere.
So whether you are an Enterprise, Online Marketing Firm, Web Professional, IT Head or just a layman individual, Zoho Vault comes in handy if you are struggling with shared passwords.
Since the type of information varies from businesses to businesses, the software lets an organization add custom entry fields to its secrets to help it save additional information, including Bank account details, Health Care, and windows login.
Installation and operation are quick, which require users to just signup and get started within a few minutes.
Unlike traditional password managers, Zoho Vault offers a full set of password management features that I have discussed below in detail.Secure and Encrypted Vault
Zoho Vault makes sure to provide the high level of security and protects all your passwords and sensitive data by encrypting it with the strongest known encryption standard 256-bit AES.
The 'Passphrase,' or Master Password that you enter to access your Zoho Vault is used as the encryption key to encrypt and decrypt the data at your browser.
What makes Zoho Vault stand out of the line? The software encrypts your secret data at the browser itself, stores only encrypted data on its server, and does not store your encryption key.
Since this key is not stored anywhere in Zoho Vault and not known to anyone including the team at Zoho, nobody except you can access your data, which provides you complete information security and privacy.
So, if in case you forget this key, you or your organization will not be able to recover the stored data anyhow.
Zoho Vault also features offline access: What makes Zoho Vault different from other password managers is its Vault you connect through the Internet.
Zoho Vault also features offline access, allowing you to access your passwords via a downloaded encrypted HTML file locally. All your secrets are just as secure offline as they are online.
Although the tool is really meant to be used online, you will not feel helpless in environments without internet connectivity.Advanced Protection with Two-Factor Authentication
For increased security, Zoho also offers two-factor authentication, which means that nobody else can log into your password vault even if someone succeeded in stealing your master password.
For your ease, the tool offers a variety of two-factor authentication options: mobile-based 2FA and via Google Authenticator.
With this feature turned on by admin, each user must enter a phone number at the next login to the vault and choose to receive authentication code via SMS/phone call, or Google Authenticator. Thereafter, login will require both Master Password and one-time verification code.
Mobile-based two-factor authentication can be trouble if you have got no signal, no battery, or a missing phone. In that case, Zoho creates a handful of backup codes (one-use codes) for login, which let you bypass smartphone-based 2FA in an emergency.
This level of security is good enough for most users as well as companies. Since administrators have control over users in Zoho Vault; they can control whether or not every employee uses 2FA.
The two-factor authentication option is also available for the free version of the tool.Feature 3 ― Secure Password Sharing & Real-time Monitoring
Secure sharing of the password is an important aspect of every organization as failing to manage shared passwords adequately can expose any organization to serious threats, particularly in the case of a disgruntled employee.
Zoho Vault solves this issue by allowing administrators to securely share passwords and other secrets among trusted members of their organization, and assign different access privileges to different users.
The information sharing process in the Vault has been designed to follow the highest levels of information security and privacy standards.
Vault allows administrators to share credentials with members within the organization without actually revealing the credentials in plaintext, monitor password usage and access among the organization, and quickly revoke access from any user in real time just by a single click.
Administrators can create multiple vaults, known as Chambers, and just give team members access to certain vaults and quickly add users to access those vaults.
Administrators can enforce and modify restrictions, like I said above, whether or not each user uses two-factor authentication (2FA) for access to their vaults.
Moreover, even if any member leaves your organization, you can transfer the secrets that member owns in Vault to an administrator.
These features make Zoho Vault one of the best solutions we have seen for corporates.Strict Password Policies an
