Security that suits you

Our marketplace, Perseus Fair, offers a selection of useful software extensions and additional services for special security needs.

The fundamental principles in cyber security and data protection, which are important for all companies, are covered by Perseus. However, due to the diverse tasks and work areas between businesses, some companies face special challenges. For this reason, we recommend individual software solutions and services from trusted partners.

Our marketplace will be regularly extended.

Password Manager

Recommendations from Perseus

Strong passwords are a central element of your company's security strategy. Insecure passwords, on the other hand, are one of the central entry points for almost all attacks on company data. A single, weak password is often enough for a hacker to gain access to the entire IT infrastructure.

Password managers are an effective tool for the secure handling of passwords.

Here we present our four favorites.

KeePass

This free, open source password management doesn't look very modern, but it lives from the various additional features from the community. For companies with few, and pre-trained employees, KeePass may be a good introduction to password security if cost is the main criterion and the increased administrative effort is not an issue.

 

Advantages

+ Secure encryption with various cryptographic algorithms possible.

Open Source.

+ Password generation.

+ Thanks to many plugins it is very well customizable.

+ Own server solution possible.

+ Free of charge.

 

Disadvantages

- High administrational effort.

- Increased training effort for employees.

- Less intuitive operation than other solutions.

- Server solution must be set up by the user.

- Only as a community transmitted version running on Linux, Mac OS and mobile operating systems (e.g. Android).

- For companies only limited support for teams, e.g. distribution of accesses by the admin.

Bitwarden

Bitwarden is a solid password manager that offers interesting features, such as two-factor authentication and additional cloud storage in the paid version. Unfortunately there is currently no check for breached accounts.

 

Advantages

+ Intuitive and appealing - also suitable for beginners.

Free Sync for all devices.

+ Secure safe for passwords.

+ No complex installation/ adjustment.

+ No own server solution for synchronization necessary.

+ Synchronization via own server possible.

+ Open source.

+ Offers own apps for Android and iOS.

 

Disadvantages

- Local operation only with your own server.

- Safety features expandable.

- Not as customizable as KeePass.

- Little support for teams, only for smaller companies.

1Password

The professional: A password manager, a digital safe, a form filler, and a secure digital wallet all in one - intuitive to use and attractive. Especially for larger companies, 1Password is the best choice, but the price is comparatively high. No other password manager offers so many features, such as multiple password databases, team support, a very good password generator and a flexible folder structure. The functionality of 1Password is similar to Bitwarden, but there is no free version.

If 1Password is not available as a stand-alone program for the desired platform, you can still switch to the browser version. Using ready-made templates, users store all kinds of data in the secure database, from website passwords to driving licenses to software keys. 1Password makes it very easy to create multiple "safes": for your own passwords and the shared ones. This works very well and is easy to set up. Employees can store their personal passwords separately from the company passwords, which the whole team needs, for example. However, the software is currently one of the most expensive solutions.

Advantages

+ Intuitive and appealing - also suitable for beginners.

+ No complex installation or adjustment.

+ No need for your own cloud solution for synchronization.

+ Offers own apps for Android and iOS.

 

Disadvantages

- Not open source.

- No support for multi-factor authentication.

- Comparatively expensive.

- Problems with password import from other tools.

Dashlane

The all-rounder: password manager, digital wallet for secure online payments and general security app at the same time.

Passwords, notes, ID cards: Dashlane clearly sorts data into different categories. The manager checks for duplicate passwords and checks leaks for personal data. In addition, Dashlane comes with a virtual private network (VPN) that is designed to enable secure surfing. The software securely stores passwords, form and payment data thanks to AES-256 encryption - just like the other solutions presented.

Dashlane only works with an internet connection. A password generator creates arbitrary character strings on demand. A special feature of Dashlane is the handy Password Changer. With the premium function, users can change many stored passwords at once with just a few clicks.

Furthermore, you can strengthen your Dashlane login with the 2-factor authentication. You can set whether 2FA should be used with each the login, or only when you log in with a new device.

Dashlane is available in three packages. The free version limits the number of stored passwords to 50 and limits the program to one device. Of course, you can also use the mobile version, but then synchronization is not possible.
 

Advantages

+ Available as browser extension, desktop program, and mobile app.

Practical automatic password change with Password Changer.

+ Auto-Login functions.

+ Easy to understand evaluation of general password security.

+ VPN included (for premium customers).

 

Disadvantages

- German support only by e-mail/ chat support only in English.

- Autofill function with quirks.

- Expensive.

Backup cloud storage

Recommendations from Perseus

A Cloud Backup is a backup of your data to a cloud-based, off-site server. Perseus recommends keeping at least one backup copy of your data outside of your office and business premises. This way, in the event of data loss or theft, your systems are quickly up and running again. Cloud-based storage is an attractive alternative to physical backup (on hard disks, or similar) in this case. Advantage: There are no additional hardware costs, and the storage space can be individually expanded.

Here we present our three favorite backup cloud storage providers.

Google Cloud Storage

Cloud storage and collaboration tool in one. Google Cloud Storage comes with many practical and easy-to-use features. For example, there are the integrated applications to edit common formats such as documents, spreadsheets or presentations. This makes it easy for teams to work together on projects in a decentralized manner. In addition, a whole range of settings and rules can be defined for storing and backing up your data: for example, whether older versions of files are automatically backed up, or whether certain files may not be deleted at all or only after a certain time. Access to data can also be configured individually.

 

Advantages

+ You only pay for what you actually use.

Unlimited storage space.

+ 100% climate neutral.

+ Google Cloud helps you meet specific standards, such as ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27017, ISO/IEC 27018, SOC 1/2/3, PCI DSS and CSA STAR.

+ Artificial intelligence and machine learning make functions especially user-friendly.

+ Fast and easy drag-and-drop upload and download.

 

Disadvantages

- Only available in certain regions.

- Now and then it is difficult to find files.

- User interface could be improved in parts.

Microsoft OneDrive

Teamwork with Microsoft Office applications. Similar to Google, Microsoft OneDrive also offers an integrated online platform for saving and editing files simultaneously. Since Microsoft's Office file formats are a cross-industry standard, this is attractive for many companies in their daily work. After all, .doc, .xml or .ppt files can be easily and quickly edited online from anywhere. Automatic synchronization of device and cloud storage further simplifies backup processes.

 

Advantages

+ Various access levels, shareable links, offline version.

+ Integration with Office 365.

+ Fast upload and download via drag-and-drop.

+ Very fast synchronization between devices.

 

Disadvantages

- Some performance issues when editing documents in the mobile app.

- Syncing multiple accounts is not as intuitive as in other cloud storage apps.

Veeam

Flexible and reliable all-purpose solution. Veeam is a simple and reliable solution for flexible backups of all cloud-based, virtual, and physical data. The solution simplifies data protection management, ransomware protection, and compliance. With various functions, data can be managed independently of its lifecycle. This offers great advantages for administration and the security of your own data.

 

Advantages

+ Single platform for cloud, virtual and physical backup. (Backup and recovery for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV, Windows and Linux servers, NAS, AWS, Azure, Office 365 and more).

Easy installation.

+ No special skills required to operate.

+ Reliable backups and fast restores eliminate the risk of data loss and downtime.

+ Special pricing and solutions for small businesses.

 

Disadvantage

Does not work on some older software system versions.
