Keeper bulks up zero-trust with new Connection Manager

Zero-trust passwords and secrets management company Keeper Security has updated Keeper Connection Manager (KCM) with new features including SQL Server and PostgreSQL interactivity.

This functionality allows administrator access for specific databases and tables, as selected by their organisations. This is not only more secure but quicker and easier than installing client-side software, according to the Keeper Security announcement.

“Admins only need to open a browser and log in to gain access to what they require, while protecting access to what they don’t,” the vendor said.

“Interactive database sessions can be recorded and monitored to protect against insider threats and provide administrators with full audit capabilities.”

KCM aims at supplying instant access to RDP, SSH, database and Kubernetes endpoints through a web browser, without a VPN.

“KCM is an agentless and clientless remote desktop gateway that can be installed in any on-premises or cloud environment. Along with PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL databases, KCM also supports connecting to RDP, SSH, VNC servers and Kubernetes pods,” the vendor explained.

Other core features include session recording and detailed audit trail, multi-user session sharing, role-based access controls, two-factor authentication, Active Directory, SSO and LDAP integration, and custom branding. KCM is powered by Apache Guacamole, it said.

The idea is to reduce support costs and risk, including third-party vendors and contractors with secure, temporary and monitored access to authorised devices and machines, it added.

KCM works alongside Keeper Secrets Manager “out of the box” to manage privileges and credentials stored in the encrypted vault, helping IT and devops teams comply with a raft of relevant regulations, from SO2 to GDPR and more.

“Keeper’s zero-trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity platform is FedRAMP Authorized, FIPS 140-2 validated, as well as SOC 2 and ISO 27001 certified,” the vendor said in the announcement.
