THE PROBLEM: SECRETS ASSET MANAGEMENT LACKS CONSISTENT SECURITY POLICIES
As more enterprise applications offer their own secure repositories to store secret assets, organizations are uncovering silos, each holding different secrets with varying lifecycle management and protection policies. Unless centrally managed, secrets such as tokens, passwords, certificates, and API keys, can exist in various locations. Not knowing where these are maintained, and applying inconsistent management policies, creates risks and audit challenges. Centralizing secrets management across the organization enables uniform policy enforcement and facilitates auditing and regulatory compliance, but requires high security.
