2018. 1Password unveiled new business offering
Popular password manager 1Password has a new subscription product aimed at business users with larger teams. The new offering, 1Password Business, replaces the Teams Pro plan. It is priced at $7.99 per user, per month, which includes a free 1Password Families membership for each user — to extend workplace security hygiene to employees’ home computing environments too. While the remaining $3.99 Teams product is geared towards smaller businesses or group users, the new Business plan offers enhanced customer support; more per person document storage; and a larger number of guest accounts.
2015. Intel to close password manager service PasswordBox
Less than a year after being acquired by Intel, PasswordBox is closing its password manager service and pushing users to migrate to Intel’s alternative, True Key, which launched earlier this year. True Key is a freemium service, but in order to get the free version of the service users need to only store 15 passwords. ‘Unlimited’ passwords (which is actually capped at 2,000) costs $20 per year. PasswordBox also offeres a freemium model, but it's free for up to 25 passwords and then users can either pay $1 per month or invite friends to use it to get unlimited passwords. So users switching to True Key are likely to have to pay more for their password management needs.
2015. Password manager Zoho Vault allows users to sign-up from Android devices
Online password management software Zoho Vault adds several new features. The updated Android app for Zoho Vault now allows users to sign-up from their devices. Users can now easily create an account with Zoho Vault, either personal or organizational, and get started with Zoho Vault via their Android devices. Administrators can now increase security levels in Zoho Vault by imposing restrictions based on the IPs from which their users access Vault. The recent update also gives users an option to select an existing chamber to which they would like the secrets to be imported to. This saves them from having to manually add each secret to a chamber after import. Users can now change the type of secrets from one to another (ex. from Windows to Unix) with ease, instead of the earlier procedure – having to delete the secret(s) as a whole and create a new one altogether with the desired secret type.
