There really is no getting away from it – every system and account that we use requires a password and the list gets longer and longer as businesses grow and expand. Committing passwords to memory and using the same password for every account are both simply recipes for disaster. Help is required in the form of a password management tool and in this article from Relativity, the business technology specialists based in East Sussex, we look at why you should have one, what they do and the benefits of using Zoho Vault, the easy method of storing, sharing and retrieving passwords from anywhere in the world.
Why You Need A Password Management Tool
Cyber-attacks are becoming more and more frequent with a report confirming that in 2019, firms reporting breaches had jumped significantly from the previous year. Many businesses still continue to use amateurish techniques to protect their systems with many feeling that they won’t be targeted. TSG claims that 60% of businesses have already faced 1 security attack in 2019, a staggering 179% rise over 2018 figures. Most attacks target Internet devices, computer systems and file sharing services. So having a password manager is absolutely essential to all businesses today.
