LONDON, Oct. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On Thursday, the password management company NordPass announced that its Business and Enterprise clients can now choose where they want to store their data — in the United States (US) or the European Union (EU) Data Center that the company just launched. In addition, NordPass passed new audits and introduced a new business subscription plan.
The EU Data Center to benefit clients in Europe
With European companies required to comply with distinct privacy laws and regulations under EU jurisdiction, NordPass launched the EU Data Center, where its Business and Enterprise clients can securely store their data. Organizations newly onboarding with NordPass can now indicate their preference for data storage location, be it the US or the EU.
To date, companies’ data was stored solely in the US Data Center. However, with ever-stricter compliance requirements, this option rarely serves companies operating in the EU. To address this, NordPass offered a solution to choose a location that best aligns with a business’s operational and privacy requirements.
Introduces new subscription plan for businesses
In addition to its Business and Enterprise tiers, NordPass introduced a new subscription option called NordPass Teams. The plan includes 10 seats with the pricing starting at €1.79 per user a month. NordPass Teams partly covers the Business tier features, ensuring easier credential management, offering password policy enforcement, and password-related activities monitoring within the team.
Moreover, NordPass Teams customers can use the platform to create, securely store, manage, and share passkeys, considered the most promising authentication technology to replace passwords. The company’s passkey solution works across devices and operating systems, regardless of an ecosystem.
Passed new independent audits
NordPass Business recently successfully passed a SOC 2 Type 2 audit. Furthermore, independent auditors concluded that NordPass Business meets the security objectives outlined in the The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy and Security rules, meaning it can ensure protection of health information. These achievements complement the prior company’s efforts that resulted in receiving the ISO 27001 certificate. In addition, NordPass has been independently audited by Cure53.
