1Password Locks Down Anywhere Workforce with Kolide Acquisition

By Greg Tavarez

The rise of remote work has significantly expanded the attack surface for businesses, with employees accessing company data from personal laptops, smartphones, and tablets outside the traditional office environment. Traditional security solutions often struggle to keep up with this evolving landscape, leaving organizations vulnerable to data breaches and unauthorized access.

1Password, a provider of enterprise password management solutions, is trusted by individuals and businesses to protect their passwords and sensitive data. 1Password's secure and user-friendly platform makes it easy to manage passwords, secrets and identities, while also providing strong security features for organizations of all sizes.

To strengthen its position in securing the modern, hybrid workforce, 1Password acquired Kolide, known for device health and contextual access management.

“Adding Kolide’s contextual access management and device health capabilities to the 1Password security suite will help businesses of all sizes close gaps in their security posture and achieve zero trust access objectives,” said Jeff Shiner, CEO, 1Password.

Kolide's platform provides real-time visibility and control over device security posture. The platform helps businesses be in better position to ensure compliance, enforce security policies and grant access only to authorized users on trusted devices.

This acquisition brings together 1Password's password management capabilities with Kolide's expertise in device health and contextual access control. By combining password management with device health and contextual access control, organizations gain a holistic view of their security posture and can address vulnerabilities across the entire attack surface.

Kolide's user-friendly interface simplifies device security for employees, reducing friction and improving adoption rates. The integrated solution also helps businesses meet compliance requirements for data privacy and security regulations, such as HIPAA and GDPR.

Additionally, by ensuring only authorized users on trusted devices can access sensitive data, organizations reduce the risk of cyberattacks and data breaches.

“We are combining forces with 1Password for one reason: We both believe every company needs user-focused device security,” said Jason Meller, CEO and founder of Kolide. “With 1Password, we now have the resources to make that belief a reality.”
