Spaces for mobile is Dashlane’s latest solution to help employees in the BYOD (bring-your-own-device) era. Based on the desktop version launched in June, the technology gives employees using Android, iPhone, and iPad devices safe and easy access to both their professional and personal Spaces within the platform.
“Password management blurs the line between home and work,” Dashlane CEO Emmanuel Schalit said. “If an employee practices safe password habits at home, that same mindset will carry over into his or her workplace.” Spaces for mobile will allow users to toggle between personal and professional spaces from the same mobile device, as well as to transfer items back and forth between spaces.
New personalization, help, and onboarding guides have been added. The solution also features an enterprise control which allows an employer to quickly restrict access to professional spaces without interfering with personal space on the platform. The Dashlane blog underscored this feature when Malaika Nicholas, community manager, wrote that the controls enabled “business owners, company executives, and IT administrators … to oversee the password health and security of their entire organization and every employee through the centralized admin console, while still maintaining employees’ privacy.”
Dashlane’s identity- and access-management solutions are used by both consumers and businesses to securely manage passwords, credit card data and other sensitive information. The company uses advanced encryption and local storage to serve more than 5 million users, with more than 6,000 companies subscribing to its enterprise service, Dashlane Business.
Founded in 2009 and headquartered in New York City, Dashlane demonstrated its core technology at FinovateEurope 2013. In June, the company unveiled its redesigned iPhone and iPad solutions, the same month Mashable featured the technology in its list of “7 can’t miss apps.” Dashlane attracted a $22.5 million investment in May in a round led by new strategic partner TransUnion that took its total funding to more than $53 million. Former Fab.com executive David Lapter joined the company as CFO this spring.
