Why Choose Passbolt?

Higher education ranks among the top sectors targeted by cybercriminals, with stolen credentials accounting for nearly 50% of attacks (Verizon DBIR 2023), often due to insecure password sharing on and off campus. Passbolt not only offers all the standard features expected from a password manager but also enhances security in collaborative university settings. It prevents password theft by enabling secure and immediate password sharing among university members, assures robust multi-layered protection with precise access controls, and keeps detailed user activity logs to meet compliance standards.
