Cloud-based Password Security vs On Premises
IT Admins feel that they don’t have control of cloud-based services, so they have a hard time trusting them.
Why It’s Critical
Cloud-based services have the allure of lower upfront and ongoing maintenance costs due to their scale. If cloud services become obsolete, a business can move rapidly without ripping out and replacing entire data centers. Businesses that are able to take advantage of these lower costs and agility have a huge advantage in the marketplace. However, many organizations hesitate moving to cloud-based services due to security concerns.
How Keeper Solves It
The key is the Keeper zero-knowledge encryption model, which is quite different from other cloud solutions. All of Keeper’s user-facing applications are on-device, meaning key generation and encryption/decryption is done on-premises. That gives IT admins complete control over the private keys and the physical access to the records stored in the vault. Admins may restrict platforms, locations and control every aspect of the usage model.
The cloud component of our product is purely for the synchronization of encrypted data syncing and access controls. Keeper is fanatical about protecting customer data, but in the unlikely event Keeper was hacked, the attackers could only possibly access the worthless AES-256 ciphertext.
Improve Password Awareness and Behavior
Most businesses have limited visibility into the password practices of their employees which greatly increases cyber risk. Password hygiene cannot be improved without critical information regarding password usage and compliance. Keeper solves this by providing comprehensive password reporting, auditing, analytics and notifications.
Use From Any Device On Any Service
Keeper is available in native applications for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac. Browser Extensions for Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge and IE are also supported. All devices are backed-up and synchronized via the Keeper Cloud. Keeper works with any application or use case that uses a password, PIN, digital certificate, SSH key, API key, access key and more.
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.
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.
