Thycotic eases privileged access management in Secret Server update

Privileged access management solution provider Thycotic has launched an updated version of Secret Server for smoother control of privileges and the attack surface.

Blogging for Thycotic, Kali Linette said that the update reduces the number of steps needed to manage privileges that help protect administrator, service, application and root accounts from cyber attack.

“This includes updates to the root encryption key in the Hardware Security Module (HSM) allow for automated key rotation with a single re-encryption that eliminates downtime,” Linette wrote. “[And] tighter integration between Thycotic Secret Server and Thycotic DevOps Secrets Vault.”

Onboarding in the new version should be faster and management easier via SSH key authentication updates. Also, Secret Server Mobile and Thycotic SCIM Connector users should benefit from enhanced connectivity and productivity, Linette said.

“With these upgrades, security and IT ops teams can control the privileged account attack surface more easily than ever.”

Secret Server has been adopted by customers in financial services — including US-based BankUnited.

In a customer testimonial, the bank’s access and identity management vice president Anne Gorman said BankUnited chose Secret Server when looking for a solution that was easily installed, easily run, and very user-friendly to fix the company’s privileged service accounts, which she described as a “hot mess”.
