Cloud Security Automation

Manage secrets and protect sensitive data across environments

Customers Who Trust This Solution

"U.S. CEOs place cybersecurity as their No. 1 business worry, ahead of new competitors and a recession."

2019 Cybersecurity Ventures Cybercrime Annual Report

The move to cloud involves a shift in operating model for infrastructure. Traditionally we had a relatively static world of dedicated servers, static IP addresses, and a clear network perimeter. In the cloud we have ephemeral and elastic pools of infrastructure with dynamic IP addresses, and no clear perimeter.

This shift in operating models requires a fundamentally different approach to security: instead of focusing on a secure network perimeter with the assumption of trust, the focus is to acknowledge that the network in the cloud is inherently "low trust" and move to the idea of securing infrastructure and application services themselves through a trusted source of identity and secrets management.

Challengesof cloud infrastructure security

People

Developers and operations staff struggle with the sprawl of secrets and access credentials sprinkled throughout their applications and infrastructure given the highly dynamic nature of a cloud environment.

Process

Teams lack a consistent workflow for interacting with secret data as applications start to span public and private clouds. Teams are challenged to ensure sensitive data is secure and has proper access controls.

Tools

Organizations have no central trusted system to manage secrets and protect sensitive data. This can lead to multiple cumbersome solutions that lack consistency across environments.

Enablingcloud infrastructure automation using vault

Vault provides a way to secure, store and tightly control access to tokens, passwords, certificates, encryption keys for protecting secrets and other sensitive data across public and or private cloud.

  • Secrets Management

    Centrally store, access, and distribute dynamic secrets such as tokens, passwords, certificates, and encryption keys.

  • Advanced Data Protection

    Keep application data secure with centralized key management and simple APIs to encrypt/decrypt data.

  • Identity-based Access

    Authenticate and access different clouds, systems, and endpoints using trusted identities.

Business impactof cloud infrastructure security using Vault

With Vault, you can increase productivity, control costs by reducing systems, licenses and overhead by centrally managing all secrets operations. Vault can also assist with reducing the risk of breach by eliminating static, hard-coded credentials by centralizing secrets.

Reduce Risk of a Breach

Developers and operations teams can eliminate the sprawl of secrets by centralizing secrets in Vault and tightly controlling access based on trusted identities and policy enforcement.

Increased Productivity

Developers can easily consume APIs, instead of handling cryptography, secrets management, etc to protect distributed applications across environments.

Cloud infrastructure security ecosystem with Vault

Cloud infrastructure security ecosystem with Vault

Vault integrates with an array of trusted identity providers such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, Kubernetes, Active Directory, and many other systems for authentication.

Vault authenticates these identities and uses them as a system of record to manage and enforce access to secrets and systems.
