The majority ( 68%) of security breaches are still caused by a human element resulting in compromised credentials, and the company recently launched 1Password Extended Access Management (XAM), an industry-first solution designed to secure every login to every app from every device, addressing the modern workforce’s need for even more seamless and secure access. Now available in the EMEA region, this solution protects users’ privacy and gives businesses strong security across managed and unmanaged applications and devices, while offering visibility and insights to help them meet resilience, compliance, and audit goals. As a leading enterprise password manager, 1Password enhances identity security by providing businesses with secure access to their most sensitive information, such as login credentials and SSH keys, actionable insights to address vulnerabilities, and seamless integration with existing security infrastructure.

1Password recently hired Oliver Cheal as Vice President, EMEA. In this role, he will oversee the company’s EMEA-based teams that are focused on designing, developing, selling, and supporting 1Password’s identity and access management solutions for customers in the region. Cheal was most recently at Cisco and Duo Security and his background is in transforming cybersecurity businesses by leading organizational change and building out the go-to-market function. With more than 100 employees in EMEA, 1Password is actively investing in its EMEA workforce, with plans to open positions across sales, marketing, customer success, and partnerships in the UK, Netherlands, and Germany.
