As businesses around the world prepare for a new year of work, it's as vital as ever to remember the importance of cybersecurity in the workplace.

With data breaches, malware attacks and cyber incidents hitting the news on a daily basis, making sure you have the security services to keep you and your work protected has never been more important.

Having a thorough and comprehensive suite of security tools can go a long way to ensuring this, making sure your workers are safeguarded beyond a basic firewall and antivirus tools with specialized services that can mitigate any potential risk.

A key part of this consideration should also be a password manager, as despite the rise of alternative authentication and protection tools, passwords are still a normal part of everyday life for many of us.

Although we've all been told to use unique or hard-to-guess passwords for business accounts, the sheer amount of apps and services we all use on a daily basis in the workplace often makes this impossible - but don’t fret, as this is where a password manager can help.

If you haven't ever used one before, think of a password manager as your secure vault for logins, offering a secure and reliable way to protect your accounts and the details needed to access them.

Bitdefender Premium Security Plus offers an in-built password manager protected by the strongest known cryptographic algorithms around right now, securing your passwords, credit card information, and other sensitive data in a cyber-vault for easy access whenever you need them.

Using this password manager means you are the only one with access to the vault, meaning it can keep your login details safe from prying eyes, whilst also providing extra recommendations and protections to keep everything secure.

The Bitdefender Premium Security Plus password manager can even recommend a unique, secure password for new accounts (or when you might need a refresh) and provides the option to autofill online forms with your verified information, meaning there should be no slip-ups.

What's more, it works across multiple platforms, covering Windows, macOS, Android and iOS devices, meaning you should never have to worry about any of your logins being forgotten.
