Enterprise-focused password-management platform 1Password has launched a new API made to give safety teams “greater data visibility” and insights by piping 1Password sign-in activity information straight into third-party cybersecurity tools.

The news comes as providers across the spectrum reel from a spate of cyberattacks, and in spite of increasing cybersecurity spending, a current Canalys report located that there have been more information breaches in 2020 than in the preceding 15 years combined. Poor password hygiene especially continues to be a important driver of safety breaches, with 81% of all breaches reportedly triggered by compromised passwords, and 1Password itself released a study lately noting that 77% of IT personnel nonetheless have access to their former employers’ IT systems.


It’s against that backdrop that 1Password has launched its new events API, enabling organizations to funnel 1Password information into safety data and occasion management (SIEM) tools such as Splunk. While sign-in activity and equivalent occasion information has previously been out there to admins inside 1Password itself, producing it out there inside committed SIEM tools provides safety personnel a more rounded view of their posture alongside other notable safety events.

While 1Password is a properly-identified brand in the customer sphere, this newest launch fits into a broader push from 1Password that has seen it bolster its enterprise credentials thanks to its gargantuan $200 million funding round a couple of years back, with  a slew of prominent clients to its name such as Slack, IBM,Dropbox, GitLab, and PagerDuty.

Over the previous year, 1Password has launched information breach reports reports based on Have I Been Pwned information. And more lately, the Canadian firm expanded into secrets management to support safe companies’ vital infrastructure, and it even launched a new Linux desktop app aimed at enterprise DevOps teams.

With its new events API, 1Password recognizes that whilst its information may perhaps prove valuable in its personal silo, it is eventually more advantageous when it can be combined and correlated with information from other sources. The firm mentioned that it worked with more than two-dozen organizations in the development of its new API for the duration of a closed beta phase.
