All the Keys to the Kingdom: Use Keeper to Stop Trust-Based Attacks.
Developers and IT Admins are constantly plagued with managing new private keys and certificates that are about to expire or need to be rotated. Over time, the number of keys and other developer-centric digital certificates grows rapidly. Multiply these by the number of environments sysadmins need to control (dev, sandbox, staging, production), and now you have four times the number of keys to manage.
Why It’s Critical
Trust-based attacks occur when cybercriminals are able to obtain digital certificates or encryption keys to critical services. By definition, a trust-based attack is difficult or impossible to detect. Imagine the losses and liabilities associated with these critical services:
Remote Access: Networks and people are distributed worldwide so businesses have no choice but to offer it. Securing remote access requires multiple layers of SSH keys, digital Certificates for VPN, and Multi-factor authentication.
Cloud Services: Entire businesses are now built in the cloud. Amazon AWS, Google Cloud and Azure management all require more than usernames and passwords. IT admins need Access Keys, Secret Keys and API Keys.
Website: This is the new storefront for businesses. A successful attack carried out against a digital certificate can have disastrous effects on an organization. And aside from the security aspect, expired certificates cost companies millions of dollars in lost business.
App Deployment: Apple, Google and Microsoft all require the use of code signing certificates to distribute applications through their platforms. Each individual team member within a software company must be responsible for managing their own keys and ensuring that production-level keys are protected.
How Keeper Solves It
Keeper stores all of your private keys, digital certificates, access keys, API keys and other secret data in an encrypted digital vault. Keeper provides a simple way to access your private information across any device type or OS. With Keeper, these digital assets are fully encrypted locally on your device with 256-bit AES and the ciphertext is stored in Keeper’s Cloud Security VaultTM
Keeper is a Zero-Knowledge Password Management solution. This means all information that is stored in Keeper is only accessible by the end-user. All encryption and decryption is done on-the-fly in the client’s device, and the data is encrypted both in-transit (TLS) and at rest on Keeper’s Infrastructure (AES-256). The plaintext version of the data is never available to Keeper Security employees nor any outside party. Keeper is fanatical about protecting customer data, but in the unlikely event Keeper was hacked, the attackers could only possibly access the worthless ciphertext.
Centralized Privileged Access Management (PAM)
Privileged access users such as IT admins and security professionals have one secure location to store and find all their passwords, digital certificates, SSH keys, access keys, API keys and more. With role-based access, administrators have fine-grained control of policies. Credentials may be shared among teams or contractors and then revoked.
Keeper or SSO or Both?
SSO requires that every application support SAML protocols and requires integration into your IdP. Keeper works with any application or use case that uses a password. Already deployed SSO? Keeper is a perfect complement for the legacy applications and even newer ones that don’t support SAML. Keeper SSO Connect works with popular SSO IdP platforms such as Okta, AWS, OneLogin, Ping Identity, F5 BIG-IP APM, GSuite, JumpCloud and Microsoft ADFS / Azure AD to provide businesses the utmost in authentication flexibility.
Keeper is intuitive and easy to deploy regardless of the size of your business. Keeper integrates with Active Directory and LDAP servers which streamlines provisioning and onboarding. Use Keeper SSO Connect to integrate into your existing SSO solution.
Keeper Scales With Your Business
Keeper was designed to scale for any sized business. Features such as role based permissions, team sharing, departmental auditing and delegated administration support your business as it grows. Keeper Commander™ provides robust APIs to integrate into current and future systems.
