Manage Secrets and Protect Sensitive Data

Secure, store and tightly control access to tokens, passwords, certificates, encryption keys for protecting secrets and other sensitive data using a UI, CLI, or HTTP API.

Secure dynamic infrastructure across clouds and environments

The shift from static, on-premise infrastructure to dynamic, multi-provider infrastructure changes the approach to security. Security in static infrastructure relies on dedicated servers, static IP addresses, and a clear network perimeter. Security in dynamic infrastructure is defined by ephemeral applications and servers, trusted sources of user and application identity, and software-based encryption.

Static Infrastructure

Datacenters with inherently high-trust networks with clear network perimeters.

»Traditional Approach

  • High trust networks
  • A clear network perimeter
  • Security enforced by IP Address

Dynamic Infrastructure

Multiple clouds and private datacenters without a clear network perimeter.

»Vault Approach

  • Low-trust networks in public clouds
  • Unknown network perimeter across clouds
  • Security enforced by Identity
