We designed Passwd to be dependable and convenient. Our model of data privacy is, unlike that of provider-hosted password managers, rigorous and without compromises. In this post, we explain Passwd architecture and its key benefits.
A cloud-native app
Passwd is not another SaaS (Software as a Service) running on 3rd party servers. It is a cloud-native app that runs in your cloud infrastructure. This means that you don’t need to maintain any hardware or servers but, at the same time, only you can access your data. Simply click to add Passwd to your account under Google Cloud Platform and you’re good to go. From the user’s perspective, it works just like your Google apps thanks to G Suite integrations. In other words, Passwd architecture combines the simplicity of SaaS apps with the privacy of self-hosted apps.
Your own GDPR compliant cloud
We built Passwd to run in Google Cloud Platform which makes it a perfect team password manager that complies with the GDPR requirements by design. Remember that entrusting your data to a reliable service mitigates the risk of data breach or loss. See Google Cloud’s commitment to the GDPR. Apart from Google and you, there is no other party.
Private and secure
Other apps run on 3rd party servers and the data can be accessed by the server host. Passwd runs in your cloud and only you can access your data. We can’t access it because the app we provide is hosted on your cloud, not our servers. This is one of the key features of our team password manager. All the information you store in Passwd is encrypted, and only you can decrypt it with your keys. Passwd encryption and decryption is managed by the industry leading Google Cloud Key Management Service.
Another benefit of Passwd is that you don’t need an admin to maintain it. Moreover, you always get the latest version without any further charges, and the app is updated automatically and regularly. And in case you really do need any help, you can reach out to our support any time.
