Keeper Security - creator of a leading password management service that helps prevent data breaches and cyberattacks - has teamed up with Air IT as we expand our cyber security offering with Password Management.
As an expert in cyber security software, cloud computing and mobile device technologies, Keeper Security has established itself as a market leader in password protection software. Its password management tool creates random, high-strength passwords and stores them in a secure vault accessible across your devices. As a managed IT and cyber security service provider, Air IT is delighted to partner with Keeper to help our clients benefit from this industry-leading Password Management service.
The growing cyber threat to businesses
Cybercrime poses a significant threat to businesses, with 4 in 10 affected by data breaches in the past 12 months, as identified by the UK Government Cyber Security Breaches Survey published in March 2021.
This figure was notably higher among medium-sized businesses, 65% of which had been victims of cyberattacks, and 51% of high-income charities. Many of these attacks could be attributed to inadequate use of passwords and poorly generated passwords.
According to Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report 2020, 80% of all hacking and data breaches are related to poor or reused passwords. And with each person using similar passwords across 70-100 cloud-based accounts on average, weaknesses are being exploited by cybercriminals in organisations that have not implemented secure password policies or integrated business-critical password protection tools such as a Password Manager or Password Management service.
Air IT partners with Keeper Security
Air IT is pleased to announce that, thanks to its new partnership with Keeper Security, businesses can ensure the security and integrity of their employees, data and business with our new Password Management service.
Thanks to Keeper Security, you can now eliminate 80% of the risk of cyberattack whilst making it much easier to keep track of your various passwords – it’s a win-win.
Features of our new password management service:
- High-strength password generator
- Multiple device use
- Secure vault for password storage
- Two-factor authentication
- Policy enforcement
- Hierarchy access and sharing
- BreachWatch – Keeper’s sophisticated Dark Web monitoring tool
- and more
As a zero-knowledge platform, Keeper Security encrypts devices locally, with no restrictions on how many devices you use. Protected by 256-bit AES Encryption Keys, Keeper’s Password Management uses market-leading cyber security technology and state-of-the-art military-grade encryption, plus it’s the only SOC 2 Type II certified password management service currently available on the market.
With two-factor authentication and Biometric-enabled Master Passwords enabled, it would be almost impossible to gain access to online accounts with passwords generated and stored within Keeper. Even for the most experienced hackers with the world’s fastest supercomputer, it would take over a million years to breach!
Highest levels of cyber security for your protection
Recognised as a Managed Service Security Provider (MSSP), Air IT is highly accredited when it comes to cyber security and this is reinforced by the news of this latest partnership. With our own in-house Security Operations Centre (SOC), we have achieved accreditation from CREST, the globally recognised cyber security regulator. This has given credence to the business’s cyber security division, headed up by Chief Technology Officer Lee Johnson who has been instrumental in establishing the Password Management partnership with Keeper Security.
Lee Johnson, Chief Technology Officer at Air IT said:
As the world shifted to remote working from the pandemic, the past 12 months have seen significant rises in cybercrime. With this, data breaches have hit an all-time high, with 65% of medium-sized businesses becoming victims. As business owners have become comfortable with working from home, the lines between office and home have become blurred. And for many, limited awareness of the cyber security risk has left businesses in the dark when it comes to password security.
With 80% of all data breaches amongst businesses attributed to poor password hygiene, we are advising businesses to stay password protected with the military-grade security of our new Password Management service through Keeper Security.
