With education ranked one of the top five industries to experience significant data breaches in 2020, and increasingly so in 2021 with the addition of remote environments, you need a secure solution to protect faculty, staff, and students on and off-campus.
For more than 1,200 higher education institutions including 44 Internet2 subscribers, LastPass solutions for higher education reduce friction for employees and staff while increasing control and visibility with a password management solution that is easy to manage and effortless to use.

Affordable and budget-friendly packages
LastPass and Internet2 have created turnkey, affordable packages designed to make it easy for you to provide secure password management to every person on campus – students, faculty, staff!
Each Internet2 NET+ LastPass package includes unlimited quantities of LastPass Business, and a premium personal LastPass account for faculty, staff, and students, providing you a holistic approach to secure access. Encouraging proper password hygiene personally increases the adoption of LastPass Business.
Give students, faculty, and staff the power to secure their digital life:
- Frictionless experience: With easy-to-use web extensions and mobile applications, users of all levels know exactly where to go, and how to get access.
- Password saving and filling: LastPass reliably captures every password at login and fills them in during the next visit.
- Password generator: Create long, randomized passwords that protect against hacking.
- Password sharing: Conveniently and safely share passwords and notes with anyone.
- One master password: Remember the master password and forget the rest.
- Universal access to the vault: Whether on a desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet, accounts are backed up and synced.
Simplified deployment for IT admins:
LastPass offers centralized administrative tools to securely manage access at the organizational level for faculty and staff. User accounts are provisioned and managed by an admin (or team of admins) through the LastPass Admin Console. Faculty and staff are invited to activate their LastPass account and create their own master password to access their business account.
By assigning admins, business accounts can be disabled or deleted using generated passwords and revoking access in real time, ensuring that your institution’s data doesn’t depart each semester with staff or students. If faculty or staff leave or roles change or students graduate, revoking access to the business account will not impact their personal account – they can take it on their next life adventure!
Features specific to LastPass Enterprise include:
