Mumbai: Identity security provider CyberArk has launched CyberArk Secrets Hub – a new SaaS solution offering developers in a hybrid environment with easy access to consume secrets on Amazon Web Services (AWS) using AWS Secrets Manager.
In the past, customers had to replicate secrets from CyberArk to AWS Secrets Manager, which could be time-consuming and error-prone. Others kept these secrets duplicated in AWS Secrets Manager, which can create security islands and double the related management effort.
Today, a majority of CyberArk customers operate in hybrid models. Being able to streamline and automate secrets management across environments can accelerate customers’ migration to the cloud by unblocking development without forcing massive shifts in their security processes.
“As customers evolve to hybrid architectures and build applications on AWS, their developers rely on AWS Secrets Manager to simplify development and operations. However, preserving developer experience can cause conflict with centralised security goals,” said Kurt Sand, GM – DevSecOps, CyberArk.
“Secrets Hub solves this problem by allowing CyberArk customers to centrally manage and rotate the secrets used by developers using AWS Secrets Manager – delivering a cloud-native experience without any changes in their workflow,” added Sand.
“This allows security administrators to continue to create, rotate and monitor secrets through the familiar CyberArk interface across environments and developers to continue to take advantage of AWS Secrets Manager. It’s a win-win for everyone,” explained Sand
CyberArk Secrets Hub is part of the CyberArk Identity Security Platform. CyberArk in cooperation with the AWS Secret Manager team developed Secrets Hub to deliver effective secrets management in hybrid environments.
CyberArk Secrets Hub automatically replicates CyberArk-managed secrets (that are intended for use on AWS) to AWS Secrets Manager.
This allows users to:
- Centrally manage secrets across multiple AWS accounts and hybrid environments while helping to ensure data segregation
Configure permissions for Secrets Hub on the relevant AWS account
- Create a synchronization policy by selecting what to sync and what target to sync
- Access the synchronized secrets leveraging AWS
Security professionals can centrally manage and enforce one policy and standard across the entire enterprise – including mixed environments – without changing compliance and audit processes.
Built for the dynamic enterprise, the CyberArk Identity Security Platform enables secure access for any identity, human or machine, to any resource or environment from anywhere using any device. Secrets Hub is currently available to CyberArk design partners with early availability details to be announced in the second half (2H) of 2022.
