LastPass

LastPass is a popular password manager for consumers, with individual pricing starting at "free." But the company also has a number of business offerings that can make managing both individual and companywide passwords possible from a central console. Many organizations will find one of their two most basic business offerings will suffice, but options for those that require more advanced authentication are available.

LastPass business solutions begin with "Teams." If your business has fewer than, say, 50 employees, then it could be enough. LastPass Teams has many of the functions available in the Enterprise version, but it is designed, according to the company, to be easy enough for business unit professionals to be able to deploy and manage the service.

If you need to employ complex user policies, integrate the password manager into network directories and cloud services, and offer single sign-on to a wide variety of business applications, then the LastPass Enterprise version may be a better choice. The difference in cost between Teams and Enterprise versions is small -- $4 per user per month for Teams and $6 per user per month for Enterprise -- but the difference in knowledge required for proper integration and deployment is larger. In both cases, the individual user is required to know very little about policies or the LastPass application since set-up is a centralized process and the application guides the user through the actions required.
