Pax8 partners with LogMeIn to bring single sign-on to MSPs

Man in suit using touch screen for Managed Service Provider

Cloud marketplace provider Pax8 has teamed up with password management firm LogMeIn to give MSP partners easier access to single sign-on (SSO) solution LastPass.

The new partnership will enable MSPs to easily protect passwords, as well as manage applications across all tenants from one secure portal, Pax8 says.

"To secure the digital workplace from data breaches and cyber threats, Pax8 and LogMeIn are equipping partners with advanced password management and security solutions, enabling them to secure their clients end-to-end,” commented Ryan Walsh, Pax8’s chief product officer and channel head.

"Using these enhanced features of LastPass, MSPs can now manage their customers passwords and access applications from a single portal, increasing productivity and effectiveness."

Designed specifically for MSPs, LastPass from LogMeIn offers an all-in-one solution for password management, single sign-on and multi-factor authentication.

From one central admin console, partners can view, access and manage customers, while securely protecting passwords and managing access to applications. It also offers the flexibility to add or remove seats as required.

Additional capabilities include 24/7 dark web monitoring, cyberattack prevention, strong password generation, multi-factor authentication, access point management, as well as PIN code storage.

By partnering with the Pax8 platform, LogMeIn says it is opening up a global route to expand the company’s reach and strengthen its channel business to help meet the needs of partners’ new cloud-first strategies.

"LogMeIn recognises that MSPs are on the frontlines of enabling businesses and their employees to thrive in the new ‘work-from-anywhere’ environment,” said Harvey Grasty, vice president of Business Development & Strategic Partnerships at LogMeIn.

"Because LogMeIn is strategically aligned to supporting MSPs in this new normal, we’ll continue to deploy MSP-centric solutions and make them accessible through innovative partners like Pax8."
