OneLogin launches new cybersecurity solution Shield to defend against breaches caused by bad password policies

Cybersecurity company OneLogin has introduced Shield, its latest addition to its digital defence portfolio.

Shield is designed to defend against the threats caused by password reuse and insecure passwords, which has become a huge risk to enterprise as the number of brute force, credential stuffing and similar password attacks are on the rise.

“Time and again, end-user behavior – specifically password reuse – emerges as the primary source of data breaches,” said Venkat Sathyamurthy, chief product officer at OneLogin. “Built with user privacy in mind, Shield empowers users to make a positive impact on the security of their enterprise in a remarkably simple and powerful way: by improving password hygiene.”

Shield protects companies by preventing employees from using identical or common and insecure passwords across different websites. Moreover, it also protects against users using corporate accounts for personal use and defends against phishing attacks.

Bad password policies are a serious matter, which it is surprising that plenty of people are still using “123456” and “password” as their passwords, according to this list of the worst passwords of 2018.
