Dashlane Launches Small Business Campaign to Increase Security Awareness Among SMBs

Dashlane Launches Small Business
In honor of World Password Day and Small Business Week, Dashlane, the leading credential and digital identity management company, today announced a brand campaign, Dashlane for SMBs, to increase awareness on the importance of making security simple for small and medium-sized organizations and their people. As part of the campaign, Dashlane is offering 30% off new accounts for Teams and Businesses from May 5 to May 19.Small and medium businesses are the backbone of this country, and often they may lack the IT resources or budget for enhanced security protocols.

The pandemic has also shifted workers to remote or hybrid work. In 2021, according to our trend report, 71% of small businesses made some security changes, with 43% adopting new security policies, 40% increasing cybersecurity training, and 31% started investing in digital security tools like password managers. Dashlane’s Password Playbook for Small Businesses shows how small-business leaders can manage passwords to secure company and employee accounts and protect sensitive data—all while improving productivity.

The company released initial findings on trends regarding the future of secure work for small businesses, in anticipation of their launch of a full report later this month.

We want to empower leaders to create a culture of security, where employees understand their role in protecting data and are active participants in ongoing security conversations,” said Dashlane CEO JD Sherman. “It is key for SMBs to identify, measure, and mitigate cybersecurity risks and have the tools they need to maintain good security habits without trading simplicity for convenience.

“Dashlane is passionate about making security simple for small and medium sized businesses, Cybersecurity is now a standard part of doing business and unfortunately, SMBs are even more susceptible to online threats. We will continue to serve as a trustworthy partner to this community, providing the necessary tools and information for them to protect their walls, gates, and human behavior.”

-Dhiraj Kumar, Dashlane CMO.

Launching this summer, Dashlane’s Domain-based Dark Web Monitoring capability - called Dark Web Insights - will continue their mission in supporting threat management for businesses by helping them identify breaches that could impact their organization.

Business Wire | September 29, 2023

Credibly, the data science-driven fintech lending platform that champions small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), is partnering with Green Dot to expand its suite of small business financial products to include accessible, intuitive and useful business banking solutions. Powered by Green Dot’s banking-as-a-service (BaaS) platform, Credibly Business Banking® will give small business owners a more seamless banking experience while addressing some of their greatest challenges with quick and easy account set up, improved cash flow management, and faster access to capital. “The demand for seamless, accessible and intuitive financial tools for businesses remains on the rise, and we are thrilled to partner with Green Dot to add small business banking to complement our lending solutions,” said Ryan Rosett, Founder and co-CEO, Credibly. “With a business checking account, customers will have faster and easier access to the cash, credit and capital they need to run and grow their business.” The U.S. continues to see a surge in new business ventures, with five million applications to start new businesses in 2022, up 42 percent from pre-pandemic levels in 2019, according to the Census Bureau. Yet more than three-quarters of small business owners say they are concerned about their ability to access capital, according to Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small Businesses Voices initiative, which is no surprise given 70 percent of small business owners without a business bank account are rejected for loans. Green Dot and Credibly are partnering to design business bank accounts with these challenges in mind, empowering them to more easily access the capital they need. The new accounts will feature online mobile banking with full customer service support, quick account set up, no fees for eligible deposits, overdraft protection, and a nationwide ATM network to access their money from anywhere. “Small businesses are a critical engine for economic growth, and we want to give them the power to bank seamlessly, affordably and with confidence,” said Simran Singh, Head of Enterprise Business Development, Embedded Finance, Green Dot. “We are thrilled to partner with Credibly to power entrepreneurs with solutions that save them time and provide easier access to the tools and capital they need to grow their businesses.” Green Dot is well positioned to enable Credibly to offer small business customers a quality business banking experience through its scalable and configurable BaaS platform, dedicated customer support team, and decades of experience building embedded finance offerings for some of the world’s largest brands. The Credibly Business Checking® offering is just one of multiple new product launches the company has on its roadmap. As Credibly continues to grow its product suite, the company remains focused on further refining its data science capabilities to serve an even broader range of SMB customers throughout the credit spectrum, while maintaining its emphasis on risk management and a strong culture of compliance. Providing the tools and resources SMBs need has been Credibly’s mission since 2010 and the new business banking offering in particular will enable them to support small business owners who have been unable to receive lending without having an existing business bank account. About Green Dot Green Dot Corporation is a financial technology and bank holding company committed to giving all people the power to bank seamlessly, affordably and with confidence.
