HashiCorp Vault is a secrets management tool that integrates with identity-based access systems such as Azure Active Directory to authenticate and access services and resources.
It uses policies to codify how applications authenticate, which credentials are authorized to use, and how auditing should be performed.
Vault can integrate with an array of trusted identity providers such as cloud identity and access management platforms, Kubernetes, Active Directory, and other SAML-based systems for authentication.
HashiCorp Vault works with common sources of identity to be a trusted identity broker at scale.
Platform teams should build a shared service using HashiCorp Vault to enable secure and audited access to secrets for any system, improving both security and developer productivity. Vault automates the remediation of compromised secrets with renewal and revocation workflows.
HashiCorp Vault provides Encryption-as-a-Service to simplify key management and cryptography for platform teams, enabling consistent security workflows and cryptographic standards across multiple environments. This reduces costs and solves complex problems, such as certificate and key rotation, while providing developers with a simple API and adjacent security teams with policy controls and lifecycle management APIs.
Advanced Data Protection
HashiCorp Vault's Advanced Data Protection capability allows organizations to delegate key management to external providers and protect data in various databases using transparent data encryption. It also provides functionality for data tokenization, making it popular with organizations with high-security requirements for data compliance.
