Exclusive: LastPass Partner Program is empowering customers
Fri, 8th Sep 2023

LastPass is the business password management solution that empowers your clients to secure their entire organisation's credentials from any location while generating incremental revenue for your business. 

With LastPass, businesses of all sizes eliminate vulnerabilities by increasing password security across their entire business and continuously reducing the use of passwords and the reliance on human behaviour. 

The company is getting recognition for its efforts, with LastPass being awarded at G2's 2022 Best Software Awards for Best Security Product - the only password management tool featured on the annual list, ranking 14 out of the 50 vendors selected. From enterprise password management and single sign-on to adaptive multi-factor authentication, LastPass for Business gives superior control to IT and frictionless access to users.
