New zero trust solution helps guard IT infrastructure
The majority of data breaches are down to compromised credentials that allow privileged access to corporate systems, in particular infrastructure secrets such as API keys, certificates, database passwords and access keys.
Keeper Security is launching a new solution to help businesses in securing these secrets. Keeper Secrets Manager is cloud-based, fully-managed and uses innovative security architecture.
"Over 80 percent of successful data breaches involve compromised credentials, and to a cybercriminal, the most desirable credentials are the ones with full access to an organization's most sensitive data," says Darren Guccione, CEO and co-founder of Keeper Security. "Yet these highly sensitive and privileged credentials are almost always hardcoded into source code, CI/CD systems or config files. Keeper Secrets Manager enables organizations to protect these 'hidden' credentials across all of its infrastructure."
The new solution makes use of the same zero-knowledge security model as Keeper's top-rated enterprise password management (EPM) platform. While competing secrets management solutions often require customers to buy special hardware, install a proxy service or use a specific cloud services provider, Keeper Secrets Manager seamlessly integrates into nearly any data environment, without requiring extra hardware or cloud-hosted infrastructure. There are out-of-the-box integrations with a variety of DevOps tools, including Github Actions, Kubernetes, Ansible and others.
"Fast and seamless integration into organizations' existing tech stacks is where Keeper Secrets Manager shines," Craig Lurey, CTO and co-founder of Keeper Security, adds. "Organizations can get Keeper Secrets Manager up and running in about 20 minutes, which is less than the time it would take just to download competing solutions' appliances. Keeper Secrets Manager is an elegant and secure solution for managing infrastructure secrets, without any added complexity, maintenance or security issues."
The secrets manager is an extension of Keeper's Enterprise Password Management platform, you can find out more on the Keeper website.
