It’s no surprise that LogMeIn bought LastPass. Companies across industries are increasingly realizing that proper password management must play a central role in their IT security strategy. While LogMeIn clearly sees a big market in the end-user password market, it’s important to remember that hackers are in fact more interested in gaining access to the organizations’ privileged IT admin passwords. LastPass has the functionality IT Pros need for basic password storage, but they don’t really have the active, enterprise toolsets to do proper privileged account management.[/su_note]
