Open Source CyberArk Conjur Released
September 06, 2017

CyberArk announced the availability of an open source version of CyberArk Conjur, enabling DevOps teams to automatically secure and manage secrets used by machines and users to protect containerized and cloud-native applications across the DevOps pipeline.

With increased DevOps adoption comes an expanding attack surface with an exponential set of secrets that insiders and malicious external threat actors can misuse, target and exploit. With CyberArk Conjur, DevOps teams gain the simplicity they need to incorporate security best practices into workflows. Secrets management is easily embedded into the CI/CD process through certified integrations with leading developer toolsets. The open source version of CyberArk Conjur is now available for download from www.conjur.org and GitHub.

CyberArk Conjur is a platform-independent secrets management solution specifically architected for securing containers and microservices. It can be deployed to any cloud or on-premises environment and supports massive scale. This solution allows DevOps teams to integrate security best practices into their cloud-native application development projects with ease, while giving security teams assurance that security and compliance best practices are being applied to these dynamic environments, without creating new security silos.

“Companies embracing digital transformation are adopting DevOps methodologies and the cloud to bring new services to market at velocity, and open source and community-driven development has become the dominant paradigm,” said Elizabeth Lawler, VP, DevOps Security, CyberArk. “Conjur has benefited and contributed to the open source community throughout its history, so making Conjur available via open source is an opportunity for CyberArk to share its expertise for the betterment of cybersecurity globally.”

CyberArk Conjur enables organizations, regardless of where they are in their DevOps journey, to integrate secrets management and machine identity security into their projects with minimal effort.

For customers that require enterprise features or integration with the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution, CyberArk offers a seamless upgrade path from the open source version to CyberArk Conjur Enterprise.
