Getting Along with your Passwords – Easy Password Management

If you’re an IT administrator, you already know the complexity of managing multiple passwords across a myriad of systems and platforms. But what if there’s a more straightforward, more secure way to do it? In this article, we’ll delve into the inefficiencies of traditional password management and why opting for an integrated Password Manager + 2FA (two-factor authentication) solution can be a game-changer for your organization.

The Cost of Inefficient Password Management

A Ponemon Institute study indicates that the average employee spends 12.6 minutes per week just dealing with passwords. If you have 100 employees each with an average hourly wage of $25, this translates to a staggering $27,300 a year wasted on password management alone.


Lost Time per Employee per Year=12.6 minutes/week×52 weeks/year=655.2 minutes/year 

\text{Cost per Employee per Year} = \frac{655.2}{60} \text{ hours/year} \times $25 \text{ /hour} = $273 \text{ /year}

\text{Total Cost for 100 Employees} = $273 \times 100 = $27,300 \text{ /year}

Security Risks

According to a Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 81% of hacking-related breaches leveraged either stolen or weak passwords. The risk is real and can lead to not only financial losses but also reputational damage that can take years to repair.

Enter Password Manager + 2FA

The dual power of a Password Manager integrated with 2FA adds an extra layer of security and convenience. Here’s how:

1. Centralized Control

Administer passwords across multiple platforms from a single dashboard, ensuring that employees can’t employ easy-to-crack passwords.

2. Multi-Factor Authentication

2FA adds another layer of security by requiring two forms of identification, usually a password and a mobile-generated code or biometric data.

3. Compliance Ready

Easily meet GDPR, HIPAA, or other industry-specific compliance standards, safeguarding your company from potential fines and legal battles.

ROI of Switching to Password Manager + 2FA

Based on real-world metrics, switching to an integrated solution can save each employee 8 minutes per week. This might not sound like much, but it adds up when calculated annually for 100 employees:


Time Saved per Employee per Year=8 minutes/week×52 weeks/year=416 minutes/year

\text{Cost Saved per Employee per Year} = \frac{416}{60} \text{ hours/year} \times $25 \text{ /hour} = $173.33 \text{ /year}

\text{Total Savings for 100 Employees} = $173.33 \times 100 = $17,333 \text{ /year}

Plus, the added security decreases the risk of a password-related breach, saving potentially millions in data breach fines and reputational harm.


Efficient password management is no longer just an option but a necessity. Adopting an integrated Password Manager + 2FA solution can save your organization both time and money, while significantly reducing security risks.
