Another case is that of Uber the popular, ride-hailing app. Around 57 million users and 600 thousand driver Partners’ personal information was compromised. In all these data breaches, hackers always target the passwords of employees and end-users.
Password Management Challenges
In today’s digital world, we use a large number of web applications like social media, online banking account, Enterprise apps, and more. The number of applications used by an individual varies from person to person, but all of us have a common problem, remembering the passwords of our accounts.
It is also tough to configure a strong and unique password for each account and remember it every single time. So, as a result, we tend to reuse one password for all accounts. In an Enterprise environment, accounts are commonly shared, such as Google Analytics, Facebook, Twitter, Travel Accounts Server account.
Most companies tend to use Simple passwords like admin123 and password1234 for easy remembrance, which will remain unchanged for years. Often, these passwords are stored in text files, spreadsheets, or sticky notes and are sometimes even printed in sheets and kept safely in physical vaults.
Mostly these passwords are used by team members from various departments. For example, IT admins, finance, marketing, and more. These passwords are usually shared through chats, email, word of mouth and phone calls Etc.
How to Combat and Overcome These Password Challenges
The first step is to stop reusing one password for all accounts. Assign a strong, unique password for each account, then list out all company passwords and store them in a centralized repository, and access to those passwords should be restricted. Only people who need that particular password should access them; it shouldn’t be open to all.
Then there’s a need to automate password management. There’s a need to have an audit facility for tracking who had access to which password and when. There’s also a need to manage the access of temporary workers and contractors Etc. Zoho Vault is designed to help combat all these issues.
