Thycotic Releases New Version of DevOps Secrets Vault
June 08, 2020

Thycotic revealed a new just-in-time functionality that ensures security of cloud platform access.

The new release of Thycotic's DevOps Secrets Vault solution supports dynamic secrets creation for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure (Azure) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

With DevOps Secrets Vault, dynamic secrets are automatically generated at the time of request and can be used when a user or resource, like a configuration tool, needs a credential but that access needs to expire after a set time. Dynamic secrets also enable fine-grained authorization through cloud policies. Limiting the scope of what the secret can do and the timeframe that the credential is valid greatly reduces any value of the secret to an attacker.

"The exponential growth of hybrid multi-cloud adoption is continuing to stress-test existing security models and conventional approaches to Privileged Access Management," said Jai Dargan, VP of Product Management at Thycotic. "We know that organizations will migrate workloads to AWS, Azure, and GCP at record speed this year, so CISOs need to do everything they can with the available solutions they have to limit risk associated with secrets proliferation. DevOps Secrets Vault is a cloud-based vault that balances the security and velocity that DevOps teams require for this growing part of the enterprise attack surface. With dynamic secrets, we have added a just-in-time approach to secrets management that further reduces the risk of compromised credentials."

DevOps Secrets Vault enables organizations to adopt enterprise-class secrets management for DevOps pipelines. The complexity and variety of tools within these pipelines require centralized management of privileged access to maintain security, unify privileged access management, and control costs.

Utilizing a cloud-based AWS architecture, DevOps Secrets Vault offers rapid deployment, elastic scalability, and is purpose-built to handle the high-speed secrets management needs of the most dynamic DevOps environments.

DevOps Secrets Vault now supports secrets access for Chef and Puppet and includes software development kits (SDKs) for Ruby and .NET. DevOps Secrets Vault also integrates with Jenkins, Kubernetes, Terraform, and Ansible, and includes SDKs for Java, Go, and Python.

Users can authenticate to DevOps Secrets Vault through AWS, Azure, GCP, and Thycotic One methods. GCP support includes the ability to authenticate via service and user accounts, Google Compute Engines (GCE) and Google Kubernetes Engines (GKE). Thycotic One enables single sign-on and two-factor authentication via both TOTP and SMS methods.
