Get Your Business Up and Running with Bitwarden in Four Simple Steps
As businesses aim to protect and secure workplace systems, new cybersecurity challenges and employee needs continue to evolve. Bitwarden provides an easy and safe solution to manage and share sensitive login data. Bitwarden client applications run on all devices and platforms across a desktop app, a web app, browser extensions, a command line interface, and mobile apps so your employees have access to secure login data whenever and wherever they need it.
If you’re ready to get up and running with Bitwarden, these four steps will set you and your business up for successful password management.
Step 1: Set up your Organization
An organization allows users to safely secure common information within a business. Information such as passwords, credentials, credit cards, and secure notes can be managed and shared among teams, groups or individuals.
Collections gather login information for secure sharing within different teams or job functions. They are equivalent to folders for organization-owned items. For example, your marketing department could have a collection with passwords for the tools they use on a regular basis, while the accounting department has their own collection of logins for their tools. Collections can then be shared with people or entire groups, quickly giving them access to all the logins they will need.
Policies allow administrators to set a secure foundation as another layer of protection. For example, an administrator can set a Vault Timeout policy that will safely log users out after a certain amount of user inactivity. Additional policies such as Master Reset and Two-Step Login enhance password protection while increasing employee ease of use.
