Today's companies need some way to authenticate user access to protect their systems and sensitive data from unauthorized access. Passwords are a common authentication method. Unfortunately, managing numerous passwords on a professional level can be tough. 

Bitwarden's passkey feature for businesses makes it easier to incorporate passkeys and move into a passwordless authentication. The Bitwarden business passcode functionality helps organizations easily implement passkeys while offering additional data security.

Bitwarden Passkey Management vs. Traditional Passwords 

A password is a user-generated string of numbers, letters, and symbols people use to access online accounts. All websites can support them. However, weak passwords are easy to hack and are susceptible to phishing. 

Passkeys are automatically generated using private and public cryptographic keys. They're phishing-resistant, tough to compromise and work solely on select websites. Examples of passkeys include PINs and voice, face, and fingerprint recognition.

According to a Bitwarden survey, nearly 90% of developers use passkeys to authenticate workforce programs, apps, and websites. Bitwarden's passkey feature for businesses is through their enterprise plan. 

Using a secure business passkey in Bitwarden allows businesses to integrate passkeys effortlessly into internal applications and customer-facing websites. Developers won't have to spend extra time implementing passkey authentication for applications at high costs. Instead, enterprises can maintain a higher standard of cybersecurity readiness and focus on growing their business. 

Enterprise-Level Passkey Features in Bitwarden

Event Logs

An event log is an exhaustive file with event data records like application notifications and security information. With it, businesses can do the following:

  • Find and isolate cybersecurity vulnerabilities
  • Monitor their system performance
  • Improve the business's IT and cybersecurity compliance

Enterprise administrators can use passkeys to track crucial events and authentication activities while maintaining system oversight thanks to Bitwarden's passkey feature for businesses.  


Self-hosting allows organizations to improve their control over sensitive data, internal and consumer privacy, and system infrastructure. Developers using Bitwarden's can opt into self-hosting on Docker Linux containers. This forces passkey authentication flows to be accessible solely through virtual private networks, ensuring improved control and security.

Bitwarden Passkey Benefits for Organizations

Integrating passkey authentication flows takes up lots of resources and is time-consuming for most organizations. The Bitwarden plan makes passkey authentication implementation easier and more streamlined. Since it functions at a reliable scale, the plan can work well for large companies and ensure smaller developer teams can get passkey authentication up and running within hours.

Other benefits include:

  • Reduced need to read W3C documentation for public key management or to learn which cryptography to implement
  • Seamless user experience
  • Phishing resistance for added security

Paying for Passkey Security in Bitwarden for Enterprises

Developers can access the Bitwarden Enterprise plan for a monthly fee. It includes the full devkit for passkeys and no limits on applications or console administrators. Though the plan enables passkey authentication development, replacing existing authentication workflows isn't necessary.

Bitwarden's passkey feature for businesses makes implementing passkey authentications a breeze. Its self-hosting and event log features increase IT security and encourage user control, benefiting companies of all sizes and industries. Discover more today.
