Keeper vs Dashlane: Comparing Password Management Solutions

Keeper vs Dashlane: Comparing Password Management Solutions

Keeper Security and Dashlane are both password management solutions that offer various user features and benefits. While Dashlane is a basic password manager with a password generator tool, Keeper is a robust, enterprise-grade solution that is only one part of a suite of cybersecurity tools covering password, secrets and connection management.

Dashlane allows businesses to instantly generate and save strong passwords for all employee logins. It is supported on  desktops, laptops and mobile devices. Keeper is a password management solution that offers the same service offerings as Dashlane—and more. 

Dashlane vs Keeper: Features and Capabilities 

Role-Based Access Controls (RBAC)

Keeper Business and Enterprise administrators can structure password management policies by role, team and organizational unit, making it easy to give employees access only to the information they need to do their jobs. Setting strict RBAC restrictions enhances secure password management across the enterprise, protects against insider attacks and prevents threat actors from moving laterally within the network.

With Dashlane, there are only two designated roles to choose from: admin or member. Dashlane does not support role-based access control policies or delegated administration. 

Monitoring and Auditing 

Keeper Compliance Reports allow admins to monitor and report on the access permissions of privileged accounts across the organization. Keeper Compliance Reports can:

  • Reduce time and costs for compliance auditing.
  • Create fully customizable reports with our user-friendly report builder.
  • Audit role-based, user-level access permissions to passwords and payment card accounts.

Keeper’s extensive reporting feature helps businesses in all industries comply with industry and regulatory cybersecurity compliance standards. 

Dashlane has limited reporting and monitoring tools, with no password event data logging or robust compliance reporting functionality.

Secure Sharing Capabilities

Sharing information is essential for collaborative teamwork in a business environment. Keeper makes it easy to organize and share folders. End users can create personal folders that are only visible to the folder’s creator, and administrators can create shared folders for teams. If a user is removed from a team, the user’s access is revoked from viewing any folders that were previously shared with them.

Although Dashlane offers basic group sharing capabilities, it does not offer the same robust customization options as Keeper, so companies can’t tailor Dashlane to their needs.
