Focus on MSPs: 1Password Launches Dedicated Management Solution in Beta

By Greg Tavarez

A cybersecurity skills gap (and integration challenges therein) have been leaving many organizations exposed, according to a report by password management company 1Password.

The company's "2024 State of Enterprise Security" report found that nearly four out of five security professionals lack confidence in their current security measures. This shows that there is a potential shortage of qualified cybersecurity personnel that leaves organizations vulnerable to evolving cyber threats.

The report also identified integration complexities as a hurdle for MSPs. MSPs often manage various IT solutions for clients across different vendors. Integrating these solutions is time-consuming. This affects efficiency and productivity in delivering services.

So, what’s needed? Namely, improved cybersecurity training and more streamlined integration between security solutions. And on the heels of its global partner program launch earlier this year, which you can read more about here, 1Password released a solution that helps MSPs proactively protect their clients by improving their security posture.

The solution is the 1Password Enterprise Password Manager – Partner Edition.

In beta, this MSP solution includes advanced administration features that help MSPs manage their customers. It offers a secure and scalable solution for managing client passwords.

An intuitive admin console allows MSPs to administer multiple clients, configure managed accounts, access client vaults and unlink them as needed – all from a single location. Granular controls ensure security and compliance with industry regulations for each client.

Streamline secure access by integrating with existing client identity providers. User provisioning, including creation and removal of user accounts and groups, are automated from existing directories. Additionally, the 1Password Events API allows consolidation of managed account activity data, such as login attempts and item usage, into popular SIEM tools like Datadog, Sumo Logic, Panther and Splunk.

Lastly, consumption-based billing lets MSPs start generating revenue from clients immediately. Aggregated billing information and audit reports across all managed companies are delivered directly to the MSP. This saves time and simplifies administrative tasks.

“By empowering MSPs to offer 1Password to their clients, we’re helping our partners deliver the strongest access management solutions to their customers, while enabling them to scale and grow,” said Jason Eberhardt, Global Vice President of MSP Channel at 1Password.

As a bonus, being part of the global partner program means MSPs also receive dedicated partner support, 1Password Business licenses for internal use and a strong partner compensation model.
