Today, Keeper Security announced it has been named an Overall Leader in the 2023 Leadership Compass- Secrets Management report by global information-security analyst firm KuppingerCole. Overall Leaders are identified based on the strength of products, market presence and innovation. KuppingerCole Analysts AG rated Keeper Secrets Manager (KSM) in the categories of security, functionality, deployment, interoperability and usability. Keeper, as a vendor, was rated on innovation, market position, financial strength and ecosystem.
The report recognises Keeper for fusion of password management and privileged access management, strong DevOps support, and being a partner network for market coverage, among other things.
“Keeper Security’s competitive advantage is their unified platform providing a zero-trust approach to cybersecurity, from password management to IoT device security,” said Graham Williamson, a senior analyst at KupperingerCole.
The recognition as an Overall Leader in the Leadership Compass report further illustrates Keeper’s position as an industry leader and innovator, as the company transforms the way organisations of all sizes secure their passwords, secrets and confidential information, and protect their digital assets to help mitigate the risk of password-related data breaches and cyberthreats. Keeper’s easy-to-use cybersecurity solutions are built on a foundation of zero-trust and zero-knowledge security to protect every user on every device, while meeting the most stringent government security and compliance requirements.
“We’ve seen time and again that secrets sprawl and hardcoded credentials pose serious threats to organisations of all sizes, from small business to large government agencies,” said Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-founder of Keeper Security. “Keeper Security’s recognition by KuppingerCole sends a clear message that our solution dramatically reduces the risks of secrets compromises that lead to breaches.”
KSM is a fully-managed, cloud-based, zero-knowledge platform for securing infrastructure secrets such as API keys, database passwords, access keys, certificates and any type of confidential data. Proper IT secrets management is essential to protecting organisations from cyberthreats, but despite the critical importance of secrets management, Keeper’s 2022 Cybersecurity Census Report found nearly one-third of organisations (32%) lack a dedicated solution to protect their secrets. Additionally, an astounding 84% have concerns regarding risks associated with hardcoded credentials in source code – and 25% don’t have software in place to remove them.
KSM consolidates secrets in a unified platform and eliminates secrets sprawl by removing hard-coded credentials from source code, config files and CI/CD systems. The solution provides visibility and control over an organisation’s data environment, security and auditing. It provides out-of-the-box integration with all popular CI/CD platforms and developer SDKs are available for all popular programming languages. Available as part of the KeeperPAM platform, KSM is embedded into the Web Vault, Admin Console and Desktop App. It also offers further integrations into Keeper’s Advanced Reporting and Alerts module, BreachWatch dark web monitoring tool, SIEM integration, webhooks and compliance solutions.
Keeper are sponsoring the 2023 European Bloggers Awards too, with nominations open until the 27th April 2023.
