Keeper Security Awarded GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract
CHICAGO, May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Keeper Security, Inc., the leading creator of zero-knowledge security solutions, Keeper Password Manager, the world’s most popular password manager and secure digital vault, and the creator of KeeperChat, the world’s most private and secure messaging app today announced that they are now under IT Schedule 70 contract. After working with contractor approval process with the General Services Administration (GSA), Keeper Security and its Keeper Password Manager have been added to IT Schedule 70, which allows for streamlined and pervasive use by all government agencies.
As cyber-attacks increase in frequency and passwords continue to be the number one entry point for hackers, organizations have a duty to protect themselves and their employees. Given the sensitive nature of government work, it’s imperative that employees have access to tools that help mitigate these risks and ease headaches often associated with having to remember multiple, complex passwords.
“We currently work with several government agencies. Now, all government agencies will have streamlined access to source and utilize Keeper Password Manager,” said Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-founder of Keeper Security. “We know how essential it is to protect passwords and sensitive information at the federal government level. We look forward to broadening Keeper’s coverage to protect the U.S. Government and its staff against password-related breaches and safeguard sensitive files, photos and videos. Our GSA contract compliments our existing SAM and SOC certifications.”
Passwords are still the most widely used authentication method within government agencies. Researchers have found that the average adult possesses more than 25 active online accounts and that 42 percent tend to remember their passwords without storing them anywhere1. Considering more than 80 percent of data breaches are due to weak passwords and poor password management practices, a password manager is a vital tool to protect sensitive government assets.
“We’ve worked diligently with GSA to list Keeper on IT Schedule 70 because we strongly believe in protecting our government’s sensitive and confidential information,” said Michael Chester, Director of Business Development at Keeper Security. “All government agencies now have access to Keeper software to protect their passwords, sensitive documents and other digital assets on all mobile devices and computers. A shorter procurement cycle can mean the difference in getting protected now versus trying to recover from a breach later, something no one should have to deal with, especially when it involves sensitive government accounts.”
