Introducing MyGlue – our password management tool

Storing passwords on a post-it note stuck to your screen is never a good idea! Yet, if you allow your employees to make their own decisions on how they remember corporate passwords – then can you really be sure this isn’t happening within your workplace?! Bad habits around password management can create security risks and expose your network to a breach. The financial and reputation damage this could cause are well documented. Thankfully, there is an easy and affordable fix.

We are partnering with MyGlue to provide a password management tool which will store your company passwords securely in their vault. This service not only helps you secure your network but also saves wasted time and money in dealing with forgotten passwords, resets etc. Some of the key features it offers are:

  • A secure password storage area to manage corporate passwords
  • It will create robust passwords –so you’ll know that no’Password123′ types are in play
  • There is a clear audit log as every interaction within the site is recorded
  • Admin can control access and it helps streamline your security processes when dealing with leavers
  • You can retrieve a password without viewing it – secure from prying eyes
  • You can also share and synchronise passwords securely, so no one will be blocked from the most up to date password
  • Features such as multi-factor authentication enable you to increase security when required
  • Custom permissions can be created for each team member – thereby controlling which team member has access to which passwords
  • You can report on how old passwords are, who has access, what passwords were at a particular point in time etc
