Authentication Software Wins CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award

LastPass MFA, a password management and authentication software for employee logins, has won this years’ “Multifactor Solution of the Year” award in the fourth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program. The software goes beyond standard two-factor authentication, using biometric and contextual factors to better protect businesses, perfect for the working-from-home economy. 

The awards honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, and Email Security. CyberSecurity Breakthrough managing director James Johnson told GlobeNewswire, “There is a sensitive balance in play in today’s business environment, wherein a company’s remote workforce requires IT to ensure employees have access to the resources they need, but must maintain security throughout the business with no borders. LastPass MFA addresses this complexity, breaking through among other MFA providers with its ability to leverage biometric and contextual factors, while offering a passwordless, simple, and secure login experience.”

The software utilizes biometric factors (like fingerprint and facial recognition) as well as contextual factors (such as IP address and geolocation). Coupled with two-factor authentication, these allow employees to easily log in to necessary software, on computers or mobile devices. It’s deployable across cloud, legacy or on-premise apps, and VPNs, to integrate seamlessly with the business’ other tools or other password management software. Security is the main focus; password data is encrypted and decrypted at the device level, kept secret even from LastPass.

Boston-based software company LogMeIn developed LastPass MFA, with the aim of unlocking the potential of the modern workforce. The company is a pioneer in remote work technology and a driving force behind today’s work-from-anywhere movement, and one of the world’s largest SaaS companies with tens of millions of active users.
