LastPass by LogMeIn

The Offer: 

LastPass is an all-encompassing identity provider, including enterprise password management (EPM), single sign-On (SSO), and biometric and adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA).

As a password manager, LastPass remembers and automatically fills in the the user's passwords for every website and app, alloing the user to use unique, strong passwords with no need to create or remember them.  LastPass also allows users to safely and securely share credentials, as well as secure notes with other users.

LastPass reduces the chance of a breach or hack through password re-use of weak passwords, in both organisational and personal logins.  LastPass also allows the university to grant access for new users—staff, contractors or students—and easily revoke access when off-boarding.

The LastPass Admin Portal allows administrators to define, enforce and measure the effectiveness of password policies throughout the organisation.

The user only has to remember their one master password for LastPass.  LastPass syncs across all browsers, computers, and mobile devices so users hae access to all of their date when needed.

The LastPass Identity service is well-suited for institution-wide adoption due to the flexible packages offered.  Shaped to meet the unique needs of higher education, LastPass Identity Service offers:

  • Fixed discounted rate per user for LastPass Enterprise, Single Sign-On and Biometric and Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication for faculty and staff and includes LastPass Premium for staff and students.
  • Their single sign-on (SSO) allows for easy access to 1,200 applications (out of box) to ensure easy access and a streamlined user experience.  LastPass SSO offers a SMAL authentication soltuions, supporting SAML 2.0.
  • Their biometric and adapative multifactor  authentication process (MFA) has the ability to evaluate multiple additional factors during authentication.  Factors include geolocation, device identification, biometrics, dates and times, and more.  Universities can define policies to dictate if an MFA challenge will occur, and whether or not certain factors should be used.
  • Data is stored locally in APAC.
  • LastPass Enterprise includes an easy-to-use ‘Admin Console’ with dozens of configurable security policies, turn-key integration with Active Directory and LDAP for simplified deployment, and an overarching ‘Parent/Sub’ structure to facilitate use by multiple schools within a single institution. Team password sharing features allow IT teams and others to share login credentials for servers, software, and web sites.
  • LastPass Premium includes individual ‘consumer’ accounts that afford no centralised control.  Great for helping students and employees keep their personal data safe and accessible. Upon purchase, relevant email domains can be whitelisted, so that all new subscribers will be automatically upgraded to LastPass Premium.
