1Password, one of the world’s most used and trusted password manager has launched a first-of-its-kind domain breach report. Enterprises using 1Password services can now quickly identify accounts that have been compromised and alert employees to create new passwords generated by 1Password. Once set-up with 1Password, team members can use 1Password Watchtower to identify where compromised passwords have been reused and change them.
Administrators using 1Password Business and 1Password Teams can use this feature, designed to keep their businesses safe.
You can create a domain breach report to see if anyone with your company’s e-mail address has been caught in a data breach. All company e-mail addresses are checked against a list of nearly 10 billion compromised accounts provided by HaveIBeenPwned.com. The report identifies all such addresses and provides details for each breach so that you can take the next step.
A February 2019 research by Google and The Harris Poll found that 65% of users reused their passwords. A 1Password survey of 2,100 of its employees revealed that almost 33% re-used easy to remember passwords and nearly 50% use a series of similar passwords. Such practices lead to ‘Credential Stuffing’, a technique used by hackers where stolen passwords and similar computer – generated variations are ‘stuffed’ into sites until the hackers are able log in and gain access.
1Password takes care of privacy and security of firms by allowing only 1Password business owners to create domain breach reports. Confirmation e-mails are also be sent, so only you can generate a report for your domains. You will be able to view the type of information breached – passwords, card details etc. but not what the credentials are. For eg, you’ll come to know if a password has been compromised but not what the password is.
This initiative will protect companies against credential theft and attacks and encourage healthy password habits. To know how to create a domain breach report, you can visit this link.
