Modernizing password and secrets management to strengthen zero-trust posture
Password and secrets management play increasingly important roles at federal and state agencies as they strengthen their organization’s risk posture and defend against sophisticated cyberattacks, says Darren Guccione, Keeper Security’s CEO and Co-Founder, in a recent interview.
“More than 80% of the time when there’s a data breach, it’s a result of weak passwords or stolen passwords, credentials and secrets. So, we’ve created a FedRAMP-authorized cybersecurity platform that protects agencies, municipalities, and the like, against these password related attacks,” shares Guccione.
The main attacks that Keeper Security Government Cloud defends against are those against employee credentials and passwords; those against DevOps’ access to infrastructure; and then those attacks against access platforms to outbound systems.
“We’ve taken critical aspects of the identity and access management framework to protect against these attacks, ‘ubiquitize’ them into a unified platform, and we are the first organization to receive FedRAMP-authorization [for this]” he explains.
“With zero trust, what you want to make sure of is that every user on every device from every location has … visibility, security, reporting and control across the entire organization.”
Guccione details how Keeper Security Government Cloud fits within the President’s Executive Order on Cybersecurity and refers to Keeper Security’s “several hundred customers” as a positive benchmark of their success, including at multiple divisions of Department of Justice, Department of Energy, NOAA and the SEC, as well as state, city and other public agency offices.
