Providing a service that is secure and reliable is mission-critical here at LastPass. As such, it’s important to periodically update our core operations. Here are some behind-the-scenes upgrades we’re rolling out:
New IPs and TLS Certification
LastPass has moved its front end site to Akamai for improved performance and security. We’ve created new SSL certificates signed by GlobalSign and hosted at Akamai.
We are adding data centers to increase our capacity to support our rapidly expanding user base. In addition to ensuring uptime, this will also improve our resiliency against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
No action is required of any users, and no interruption to service is expected.
We also want to assure our users that no changes have been made to the way that we encrypt, store, or securely transfer user data. As we have from day one, we continue to employ local-only encryption to ensure that LastPass, LogMeIn, and anyone else cannot access passwords and other sensitive information you store in your vault. Only you have your master password, so only you have the key to unlock your vault. Our commitment to security and privacy has always been and continues to be fundamental to the work we do.
We’re on a mission to be be the world’s password manager of choice, and building a high-availability, high-scalability architecture is part of that mission.
