57% of organizations have experienced security incidents related to secrets exposed in DevOps

REDWOOD CITY, California and WASHINGTON, November 16, 2021 / PRNewswire / – ThycoticCentrify, a leading provider of cloud identity security solutions formed by the merger of privileged access management (PAM) leaders Thycotic and Centrify, today released a new investigative report from Forrester that discusses the paradox of security innovation in DevOps environments. While revealing that more than half of organizations have experienced security incidents related to secrets exposed in the past two years, it also paints a troubling picture where only 5% say most of their development teams use the same ones. secret management process and tools.

The Overview of the Forrester opportunity A report, commissioned by ThycoticCentrify in spring 2021, titled “Secure Innovation Requires Making DevOps Secrets Management Invisible,” interviewed 227 Identity and Access Management (IAM) decision-makers and 160 members of development teams in North America, EMEA and APAC. While 68% of developers agree that management prioritizes security over release dates, 53% of IAM managers say developers lack the understanding or ability to implement appropriate security controls . The report also reveals that while executives and IAM developers want to simplify access management, secure access controls are often too manual and fraught with friction, hampering innovation.

“Migrating to the cloud and adopting microservice architectures requires a shift to automated application delivery. These new application architectures must be designed with security in mind to ensure compliance and protect the integrity and reputation of the business, ”said David McNeely, CTO at ThycoticCentrify. “Securing these new applications should be easy for developers, while providing the flexibility that operations teams need to meet business requirements. This report provides encouraging validation that security managers and developers want to centralize and integrate secret management into tools already used in continuous integration and continuous deployment pipelines. “

The key to solving this challenge is to make secret management invisible to developers and DevOps teams, who agree it would improve their experience (63%) and productivity (69%). To achieve this, 76% of IAM managers look for PAM solutions for DevOps specifically designed to help development and security teams work better together.

ThycoticCentrify’s PAM secret management solution for DevOps, DevOps Secret Chest, allows organizations to centrally manage, control and audit the secrets of automated processes that operate without human oversight. DevOps Secrets Vault improves the productivity of developers and security teams by reducing friction, integrating automated secure access controls into the DevOps process.

ThycoticCentrify recently introduced geolocation-based routing to ensure customers automatically go to the cloud service closest to their data centers to optimize performance and ensure active failover. The solution is continuously enhanced for ease of use, now allowing non-DevOps users to view and manage DevOps Secrets Vault through a user interface rather than the Command Line Interface (CLI).
