KeePass PlugIn

Ensure strong password security in the company

DoubleClue KeePass Plugin Provides KeePass Users with Comprehensive Security Upgrade through Multifactor Authentication

Neustadt an der Aisch, Germany, April 28, 2021 – The HWS Group, a medium-sized provider of software development and IT services, offers companies with DoubleClue a holistic software solution for identity management. The integrated DoubleClue PasswordSafe builds on KeePass. Centralized password storage and additional multifactor authentication protect against password and identity theft.

DoubleClue PasswordSafe is based on the encryption algorithm of KeePass, a globally popular open-source password manager. This compatibility allows easy import and export of existing data from KeePass using the DoubleClue KeePass plugin. At the same time, multifactor authentication, as well as centralized storage in the cloud, increase the application’s security. Since passwords are not stored on the end device, DoubleClue PasswordSafe enables secure usage on multiple devices.

Identity protection requirements in the company environment have increased

“The BKA has observed an increasing number of cyberattacks on companies for years. This brings the question of effective technical protection as well as a sustainable password policy to the forefront at management levels,” says Emanuel Galea, Senior Director Software Development at HWS. “Our experience has shown that many companies rely on KeePass. However, KeePass lacks key collaboration and security features by default in the company environment.”

KeePass gets a comprehensive security upgrade with the DoubleClue KeePass plugin. Multifactor authentication and centralized encrypted storage meet current security and mobility requirements in the company environment.

DoubleClue PasswordSafe eliminates password theft by insiders

Along with organized crime, insiders are primarily responsible for enterprise data incidents. A Bitkom study published in 2019 suggests that insiders were responsible for data espionage and sabotage in more than half of the companies surveyed.

HWS Group has responded to this finding. DoubleClue relies on a two-part key for encryption in the cloud. The important part of the key is known only to the user. This rules out unauthorized access by internal resources despite central storage. Multifactor authentication also protects against account theft, such as phishing or brute force attacks.
