News | 14.12.2021

BOSTON, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LastPass by LogMeIn announced a new integration with Google Workspace (formerly known as G Suite) as part of its federated login services. With this latest addition, LastPass now has directory and federation integrations with four of the top identity providers (IdP) in the market, including ADFS, Azure AD, Okta, and Google Workspace, making it easy to build LastPass into existing systems, enhancing security for businesses while simplifying the login process for end-users.

Once an organization has its directory integrated with LastPass, employees experience a seamless login process that provides users access to LastPass using their corporate Google Workspace credentials — no additional password required. This method removes login complexities and password reset frustrations for users, as well as additional overhead costs, tools, and integrations for IT team to manage.

Through the Google directory integration, employers can also automatically provision LastPass accounts to their employees to streamline adding and removing users.

The integration is set up by IT through a one-time configuration, providing users with simplified access to their most-used tools in a way that does not compromise on security.

LastPass is the leading password manager on the market, providing this level of security authentication for federated login integrations with identity providers. Between this new integration with Google Workspace, and the combination of zero-knowledge infrastructure and multi-key approach, this security model that is unique to LastPass offers a level of security uncommon with such a simple login experience. This ensures the keys used to unlock a user’s vault only reunite locally on the end-user’s device.
