FSET has officially made the move to Keeper, in our continuous effort to protect our clients’ data and sensitive information as best as possible.
Keeper Security Inc. is an industry leading password management company that employs zero-knowledge security protocols and encryption software. While FSET previously utilized LastPass, recent developments in the field of cybersecurity have propelled us to adopt Keeper as our password manager of choice.
Earlier in the year, FSET’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) performed a detailed analysis of all password managers on the market. The team set out with a list of stringent requirements that they were looking for in a password manager, and it was eventually determined that Keeper was the best solution for both the company and our clients.
“One of the things that we like about Keeper is that it has a good compliance model,” says Shawn Tackaberry, FSET Security Analyst.
“They have many industry certifications that other password managers do not have, including FedRAMP, which no other password manager has – it really shows that their game is better than the rest.”
In addition to FedRAMP, Keeper holds an ISO 27001 certification – as does FSET – as well as SOC 2, FIPS 140-2 and StateRAMP Authorized, all of which are some of the highest internationally-recognized standards for cybersecurity.
By using zero-knowledge and zero-trust security architecture, Keeper enables users to create what the company calls Keeper Vaults. By encrypting sensitive data this way, hackers face a tough time trying to access anyone’s passwords – in fact, not even Keeper itself has access, only their users.
When combined with other tried and tested security measures such as random password generation, two-factor authentication (2FA) and multi-factor authentication (MFA), Keeper offers a very high degree of cybersecurity protection.
“We defined the security safeguards that we expected of a password manager, assessed all of the existing solutions against those requirements, and then selected the best product,” adds Francois Marinier, FSET CISO.
“FSET decided on Keeper because it best satisfies those security requirements, with some very specific security protocols in place that should ensure our passwords are protected.”
Keeper works on Windows, Android, macOS and iOS, is compatible with most devices on the market, and can be scaled to match the needs of practically any organization.
