Bitwarden is the password manager for global enterprises
With an internationally dispersed workforce, global enterprises have unique needs when it comes to password management.
Bitwarden is an open-source password manager that helps users around the world protect their online accounts and secure passwords, notes, and other important information. With more than 50 languages, self-hosting capabilities, customization options, and open source transparency, Bitwarden is the right choice for password management at global enterprises.
Offering a wide range of language selections, Bitwarden ensures all employees have access to the same security resources across the company, no matter their preferred language. For example, if a company has multiple offices in different countries, each one can separately select which language to use in the application. Bitwarden supports more than 50 languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Chinese, and Japanese.
If your preferred language isn’t covered, you can help by engaging with the translation efforts from the community in a tool called Crowdin. With this platform, Bitwarden users can make corrections to an existing translation or start translating a new language to be used across Bitwarden clients. With a diverse workforce, these language options are key to centralizing password management and cybersecurity in any global corporate environment.
Bitwarden takes pride in its open source nature, providing customers with complete transparency into its source code. This is particularly beneficial for global enterprises with large security requirements, allowing them to review the source code and be assured their employees and data are properly protected. Bitwarden code transparency allows developers and community members alike to review the code, confirm security practices, identify any potential issues, and provide feedback.
Bitwarden is also an active participant in the open source community, with regular security audits and code contributions from Bitwarden users. Because Bitwarden is open source, they can more easily work with auditing firms like Cure53 and Insight Risk Consulting to complete annual network and general security assessments. With the support of such a large community, customers can be sure that their data is secure.
Bitwarden meets the needs of your integration approach and offers enterprise features such as a single sign-on (SSO) integration with existing authentication systems and full control over user access.
Single sign-on (SSO) is a great way to streamline the authentication process and keep user accounts secure. With the Login with SSO integration, Bitwarden supports popular SSO protocols such as SAML and OpenID Connect. This allows businesses to easily integrate their existing authentication systems with Bitwarden, providing an efficient and secure login experience.
Customization also extends to user access. With Bitwarden, global businesses can define specific user or group access and editing permissions, to ensure employees only have access to the passwords and information they need. With the SCIM or Directory Connector integrations, enterprises can also automate the onboarding and offboarding process for users. These enable businesses to customize their security and authentication needs to suit their specific requirements.
Bitwarden offers multiple self-hosting options, enabling organizations to take full control of their password management environment and data. This is especially useful for global enterprises that need to maintain data centers in different locations. With self-hosting, an enterprise can deploy Bitwarden on any operating system or cloud platform and benefit from the same features as the hosted service.
Self-hosting a password manager can also help global enterprises build their own customizations and integrate with existing environments. Large international organizations often have a complex and intricate tech stack that may be impacted by regional security regulations. By building their own integrations into that tech stack, enterprises can better define how their data interacts with other systems and adhere to local security standards.
Global enterprises can also benefit from the international Bitwarden community, which is comprised of millions of users and businesses. These community members are incredibly active on multiple platforms — including the Bitwarden community forums, Github, Twitter, Mastodon, and Reddit — and are constantly providing input on the product and helpful security advice. This unique and diverse perspective on cybersecurity empowers everyone to stay more secure online.
