go beyond rotating, vaulting managing passwords and keys 

Credentials and secrets management 2.0

Manage the risk of SSH encryption keys, passwords and other always-on credentials from a single pane of glass. Gradually migrate to passwordless authentication together with passwordless, keyless SSH.

Manage secrets your way

Tokens, passwords, certificates and encryption keys all open access to mission-critical information in IT environments. Managing these secrets is a top priority.

At the same time, IT environments are a mix of old and new technologies (like data centers and cloud services, Linux, Unix and Windows environments), creating complex hybrid environments for secrets and credentials management.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution.

We offer you a best-of-all-worlds solution to manage your secrets. Manage, vault and rotate the credentials you still have while building a path to a future with passwordless authentication and passwordless, keyless SSH.

 

The future of authentication is passwordless

Passwords have been rotated and managed for decades. Yet they continue to pose security risks. It's time to say goodbye to permanent credentials and always-on authorization. Here's how you still manage your legacy environments while paving the way to the future:

1_roundStop password sprawl

Store passwords to an encrypted & secret vault

Manage and limit access.

2_roundReduce risk

Obfuscate shared account passwords

Put a stop to password sharing.

3_roundAutomate rotation

Manage and rotate passwords

 Limit re-using passwords and adhere to policies.

4_roundJust-in-time Zero Trust access

Go passwordless 

Leave the pain of password management and rotation in the dust. Embrace just-in-time- short-lived access.

The future of SSH is passwordless and keyless

SSH encryption keys are access credentials just like passwords. They often outnumber passwords 10 to 1 in IT environments but are typically unmanaged. If you control all your passwords, you only manage 20% of your critical credentials if SSH keys are rogue. This is how you go passwordless and keyless in SSH:

1_roundFind keys gone wild

Scan & discover keys

Know who/what has access to where and discover policy and compliance violating keys.

2_roundReduce risk

Eliminate at-risk Keys

Remove unauthorized, obsolete and outdated access.

3_roundAutomate

Control key lifecycle

Enjoy systematic renewal of authorized access with a maximum level of automation.

4_roundMinimize complexity

Become keyless with Zero Trust

Radically reduce the number of keys to manage with just-in-time access. Passwordless, keyless SSH is possible.

Passwords = Keys = Permanent credentials

1. SSH Keys are like passwords - but 10 times more common

SSH encryption keys are just as important access credentials as passwords but 10 times more prevalent. That's why they require robust provisioning and termination processes and audit attention.

2. Keys and passwords are regulated and an IT audit failure point

Auditors and regulations require that both SSH encryption keys and passwords are used responsibly. Applicable regulations include PCI-DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), HIPAA, and NISTIR 7966.

3. Keys and passwords are used ungoverned 

Many Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions don't handle SSH Keys. When vaulted, this typically accounts for only 20% of keys. Both keys and passwords are shared and managed without a centralized way to manage both.

4. Managing is good, credential-less is better 

Vaulting, rotating and managing encryption keys and passwords is still necessary in many cases. But keyless, passwordless SSH and passwordless authentication reduces your risks and massively streamlines your management needs. We can help you with both with our hybrid approach.

Permanent credentials add risk and costs

80%

According to the Verizon Data Breach Report, 80% of hacking-related breaches involve brute force or the use of lost or stolen credentials. Passwords and permanent credentials are still the easiest ways to penetrate your security systems.

1 million USD

According to Forrester, this is the annual allocation for password-related support costs in a large US company. Gartner says that 20-50% of all IT help desk tickets are for password resets.

71%

According to a Vanson Bourne study, 71% of IT pros experience issues with access management that slows down their daily work. 85% share account credentials out of convenience, even though most (70%) understand the risks.

 

Passwordless is urgent

The Gartner Emerging Technologies and Trends Impact Radar places passworldess authentication as the top priority for organizations this year. 

Passwords and keys are twins. Manage them together.

Passwords and encryption keys are technologically different but serve the same purpose. They grant access to something valuable in IT and OT environments.
We offer a unique solution that puts the management of your critical credentials under one roof.  You manage, vault and rotate your keys and passwords with ease while migrating to a world with keyless, passwordless SSH and passwordless authentication.
