WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Thycotic, a provider of privileged access management (PAM) solutions for more than 7,500 organizations worldwide, today announced Secret Server SDK – a new command line interface for its Secret Server privileged account management solution, enabling DevOps teams to bring best practice privileged account management to their code, build scripts, and configuration files. Additionally, Thycotic released the latest version of Privilege Manager, helping organizations implement a least privileged security posture in minutes, without sacrificing end user productivity. The new Privilege Manager allows for local security management on endpoints and application control for effective least privilege projects without impacting business user productivity.
“This release solves one of the biggest operational security challenges facing organizations today: implementing a least privilege security posture without impacting end user productivity,” said Jai Dargan, senior director of Product Management at Thycotic. “CISOs and other security leaders have been telling us that ‘least privilege’ security sounds great in theory but is nearly impossible to implement in practice. They all want to remove local administrative rights but are afraid of the pushback from end users. We’ve made it easy with this release.”
The 10.4 release introduces Privilege Manager’s least privilege and application control functionality. This allows administrators to easily implement and enforce a least privilege security posture across their organization’s endpoints, eliminating a major attack vector without disrupting end user productivity. Together, this combined approach to least privilege and application control can help prevent malware from exploiting local credentials on endpoints – the most vulnerable part of an attack surface.
The Secret Server SDK enables software developers and IT Operations professionals to leverage Secret Server as part of their application development and deployment process. DevOps teams can now rely on Thycotic’s military-grade security vaulting capabilities to dynamically retrieve credentials secured in Secret Server, ensuring robust security around secret retrieval, while keeping hardcoded passwords out of code and configuration files used throughout the DevOps lifecycle.
“With the release of our new SDK, DevOps engineers can now take advantage of Secret Server to dynamically retrieve secrets as part of their DevOps cycles, while giving peace of mind to security leaders who have long trusted Secret Server for privileged accounts throughout the organization,” added Dargan.
