[ Back to LastPass ]

LastPass Enterprise is a password management tool created to securely store usernames, passwords, and other data as well. LastPass offers a place to store your information in one place without needing to remember login information for a large number of accounts. The tool also offers the option to generate random passwords and share them as well. Strong passwords deter people with malicious intent from breaking into an account and stealing your information.
